Municipal Solutions Group, Inc. Announces $1,000,000 Convertible Debt Financing

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2008) - Municipal Solutions Group, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MSZ) ("Municipal") announces that it has entered into an agreement with Pender Growth Fund (VCC) Inc. and a company controlled by a director of Municipal pursuant to which the two investors will purchase an aggregate of $1,000,000 principal amount of 12% secured, convertible debentures (the "Debentures") to be issued by Municipal.

The Debentures will bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum and interest will be payable monthly, in arrears. The Debentures will mature on the date which is 18 months after the date of their issuance and repayment of all principal and interest will be secured by a general security interest over all of the assets of both Municipal and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Municipal Software Corporation.

Beginning on the date which is six months after the date on which the Debentures are issued, the Debentures will be convertible, at the option of the holder, into common shares of Municipal at a price of $0.25 per share, subject to adjustment in certain specified circumstances. The Debentures may be prepaid by Municipal at any time, without penalty, subject to certain notification and minimum prepayment requirements.

Completion of the financing is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all required regulatory approvals.

Dennis Asbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of Municipal commented, "This financing, combined with the cost savings we have realized from our restructuring in October, should allow us to execute on our strategy of profitable growth. We appreciate the confidence shown by these investors."
