Pursuant to the above, the Board of Directors of Careplus wishes to announce that the Company intends to vary the remaining unutilised proceeds of RM4.05 million to part finance the construction of the new factory located at Lot 17479, Jalan Senawang Empat, Senawang Industrial Estate, 70450 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus, amounting RM3.5 million and the remaining RM550,000 to be utilised for the purchase of supporting equipments installed to the two (2) new production lines, rather than to fund the purchase and setting up of the biomass plant and heating system.

The said variation is announced after taking into consideration the lower interest rate that the Company could obtain from bank borrowings under the Green Technology Financing Scheme, an incentive scheme introduced by the government of Malaysia to encourage the supply and usage of green technologies.

This announcement is dated 26 April 2011.
