Okalla Suspends ProBilling Operations

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 24, 2007) - Okalla Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AOK) ("Okalla") is suspending its operations in its ProBilling Inc. subsidiary due to the events over the past ten days affecting the high risk payment processing industry, most specifically the recent arrest of former executives of a UK-based online gaming payment processing company and intensified US investigations focused on online gaming-related transactions, in which ProBilling Inc. is not involved.

As a result of these investigations, the company through which ProBilling payment processing transactions are handled, has suspended ProBilling's payment processing operations indefinitely.

In light of the foregoing, management of Okalla has, in the best interest of the shareholders, suspended the operations of ProBilling. Okalla intends to aggressively pursue alternative opportunities both in and outside the online payment processing industry which have potential for creating value for our shareholders.
