QI Systems Receives NASDAQ Delinquency Notification

DALLAS, TX and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - QI Systems Inc. (OTCBB: QIIIE), a leading developer and integrator of contact and contactless card payment, access control and tracking solutions, announced today that it received a delinquency notification from NASDAQ and expects its common shares to eventually be delisted from the Over the Counter Bulletin Board exchange.

The delisting will occur as the result of the Company's decision to delay the filing of it 10-KSB for the year-ended June 30, 2007. Following notification of the delisting, the Company will continue to be traded on the OTCBB for 30 days with an "E" appended to its symbol. The Board of Directors determined that the financial requirements to maintain its listing outweighed the benefits to the Company and its stockholders and that it is in the best interests of the shareholders that the Company devotes its resources to the development and launch of its new QiWave™ contactless product line. The Company expects to continue its other ongoing reporting requirements. Going forward, the Company's shares will continue to be listed on the Pink Sheets.
