Venture One Capital Corp. Announces Extension to Qualifying Transaction Deadline Date

WEST VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2009) - Venture One Capital Corp. ("Venture One" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VO.P), a capital pool company, announces that in accordance with the extended temporary relief measures announced by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") on March 6, 2009, the Corporation has applied for and received a six-month extension for the completion of its "Qualifying Transaction" (as such term is defined in the policies of the Exchange). The new deadline date for the completion of the Corporation's Qualifying Transaction (the "New Deadline Date") is February 28, 2010.

As disclosed in the Corporation's press release dated July 16, 2009 (the "July Release"), the Corporation has entered into a definitive agreement with NMC, Inc. ("NMC") and the three (3) shareholders of NMC, whereunder it is anticipated that the Corporation will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of NMC (the "Acquisition"). Please see the July Release for information relating to the Acquisition. The Corporation is a capital pool company and intends for the Acquisition to constitute the "Qualifying Transaction" of the Corporation as such term is defined in the policies of the Exchange. Although the Corporation is actively working to complete the Acquisition, there can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be completed by the New Deadline Date or at all.

The Corporation's common shares are currently listed for trading on the Exchange. In accordance with Exchange policy, however, the Corporation's shares are currently halted from trading and will remain halted until such time as determined by the Exchange, which, depending on the policies of the Exchange, may not occur until the completion of the Acquisition.
