Synodon Closes First Tranche of Private Placement

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) - Synodon Inc. ("Synodon") (TSX VENTURE:SYD), a developer of advanced remote sensing technologies, announces that it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement for gross cash proceeds of $176,240.00. The closing was comprised of 538,032 "Units" at $0.45 per Unit, which included conversion of an existing option (a third party converted a previously held option in the amount of $65,875 to convert to common shares for the issuance of 146,389 Units). The Units are comprised of one Class A common share and a half of a Class A common share purchase warrant (the "Warrants"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.75 per share for a period of two years, expiring August 10, 2011.

The Warrants are subject to an acceleration right, such that if the closing price of the common shares is greater than $1.05 on any day subsequent to August 10, 2009, Synodon may give notice to the holders of the Warrants that the expiry date for exercise has been accelerated and the Warrants will expire on the thirtieth business day following the date of such notice.

The common shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the private placement are subject to a four month statutory hold period which expires on December 11, 2009. The Corporation paid cash finder's fees totaling $17,120.00 in connection with the sale of the Units.

The proceeds will be used by Synodon for working capital and for debt repayment.

The Company intends to close an additional tranche of the current private placement in the fall of 2009.
