Summus Works, Inc.: Broadcast Division Negotiations to Affect Broadcast Division Bottom Line for Eastern Properties

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 16, 2006 -- Summus Works, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMMW) announced that in lieu of yesterday's announced sale of RSN to a group of investors and the reorganization of former Adelphia cable systems by Comcast and Time Warner in the Northeast, the Company is renegotiating the terms of all cable broadcast activities in Vermont and New York. The Company announced it has suspended its Eastern cable broadcast activities until terms more favorable to the Company's bottom line have been negotiated. Management stated that while revenues are expected to increase in accordance with favorable margins respective to its current and pending broadcast activities in the Western U.S., it is hopeful that its negotiation of similar terms will result in increased profitability and value to the Company and shareholders.

Yesterday, RSN announced it will be sold to private investors "with extensive expertise in the media and resort industries," though the sale remains subject to FCC approval, specifically for the transfer of RSN's broadcast licenses. Approval is expected in early 2007. You can find RSN's release at http://www.rsn.com/aboutrsn/releases/2006Nov16.html.

Summus Works management noted this is an opportune time for the renegotiation of terms on multiple fronts for its eastern properties while the cable broadcast environment itself is undergoing change there. The Company reiterated it still celebrates its eastern roots, having announced earlier today that the 4th Annual Stowe Mountain Film Fest will commence November 25.
