GENOIL INC. ANNOUNCES COMPENSATION OF COMMITTEE MEMBERS
CALGARY, AB, January 24, 2006 – Genoil Inc. (“Genoil” or the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture: GNO, OTCBB: GNOLF) hereby announces that, on January 15, 2006, the board of directors of the Corporation (the “Board”) approved the issuance of 64,000 common shares to Adam G. Hedayat and 16,000 common shares to Brian Korney. Messrs. Hedayat and Korney are both directors of Genoil and the shares approved for issuance are to be issued as compensation for their involvement and contribution on a special committee of the Board. The Board is of the opinion that the work required by this committee was considerably greater than that originally anticipated upon the creation of the committee and as such Messrs. Hedayat and Korney should be compensated accordingly.
The special committee was comprised of Messrs. Hedayat and Korney (with Mr. Hedayat acting as chairman) and was charged with investigating ways in which Genoil could take advantage of certain opportunities available to it relating to technologies compatible to that owned by Genoil. The special committee was involved in the negotiation and entering into of certain agreements that would allow Genoil to exploit such technologies.
Genoil is a technology development company providing solutions to the oil and gas industry through the use of proprietary technologies. The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader can economically convert heavy crude oil into more valuable light synthetic crude, high in yields of transport fuels, while significantly reducing the sulfur, nitrogen and other contaminants in the oil.
