Dividend Detail:


EDMONTON, March 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Carfinco Financial Group Inc.
("Carfinco" or the "Company") announces that a cash dividend of 3.0
cents per share has been declared for March 2012, with a payable date
of March 30, 2012, to shareholders of record on March 20, 2012.�� The
ex-distribution date is March 16, 2012.

The Company has also entered into an interest rate swap agreement with a
notional amount of $100,000,000, a fixed bankers' acceptance rate of
1.55% and a three year term that ends on March 9, 2015.�� Carfinco
regularly monitors our interest rate swap position to minimize our
exposure to interest rate risk.

"Entering into this swap agreement is beneficial for both the Company
and its shareholders as it reduces the business risk of increasing
interest rates on $100 million of our senior debt over the next three
years," stated Tracy Graf, CEO of Carfinco.
