of Conporec Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CNP) today announces that the closing date of the investment
expected by Amsterdams Effectenkantoor B.V. (AEK), an investment company from
Holland, has been postponed. Expected at the end of January, the closing date
is postponed to February 28th 2006 due to health problem with the investor's
representative. Let's remember that AEK offered to invest, via a private

the Company for a total amount of $30 millions, subject to the terms and
