Aurus Announces Extension Regarding Date of Record of Dividend

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 31, 2007 -- AURUS Corp. (PINKSHEETS: AURC) had previously announced that it shall give each of its shareholders on record as of January 30, 2007 a premium of one share for every ten shares held in the Company.

AURUS announces that it must extend the date of record for granting the stock dividend until February 15, 2007. This is due to the delays caused by the holiday period in Russia which extended until mid January. The accountants need this additional period to ascertain the number of shares affected by this dividend. This is required in order to prepare their financial statements.

In future releases the Company shall provide shareholders with information as to the procedure to issue the stock dividend.
