("Yoho" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:YO) announces that it has entered into an agreement with the private lender under Yoho's short-term loan facility to extend the maturity date of the loan from January 3, 2008 to January 3, 2009. Currently, $5 million of the original $6 million is drawn under this facility. This loan facility was entered into on December 29, 2006 and was extended to mature on January 3, 2008.

The Warrants, and the common shares issuable on exercise thereof, are subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date hereof.
