AZCAR Awarded US$ 6.1M Services Agreement by Sprint Nextel

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 25, 2007) - Stephen Pumple Chairman and CEO of AZCAR Technologies Incorporated (TSX:AZZ) announced that wholly owned subsidiary AZCAR USA, Inc., has entered into an Agreement valued at US$ 6.1M with Sprint Nextel, a major US wireless telecom company, to provide specialized training services to more than 900 US television stations throughout the remainder of 2007 and all of 2008.

AZCAR will provide a comprehensive training solution to assist Sprint Nextel and US broadcasters as they carry out a government-mandated spectrum relocation plan.

AZCAR's training services will help US broadcasters to navigate the complexities of the spectrum relocation and to understand the new equipment that is currently under installation around the country.

"We are delighted to be able to announce this services agreement," said Pumple, "as we continue to grow and develop the range of services we offer in the US marketplace. This agreement will also generate new jobs in the Pittsburgh area and additional opportunities for AZCAR as we go forward."
