Braintech Finalizes Share Obligation as Part of Debenture Repayment Plan

Ongoing Share Dilution Risk Removed From Financial Statements

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - Braintech Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI), a leading provider of Vision Guided Robotic ("VGR") software technologies, announced today that the Company has finalized a share distribution obligation as a part of a convertible debenture repayment plan. The final share distribution of 1,625,000 restricted common shares was issued to a group of investors who provided security allowing for repayment of the convertible debentures.

The convertible debentures, issued in 2002, were redeemed utilizing a $2,450,000 term loan from the Royal Bank of Canada. The Royal Bank required that investors provide standby letters of credit (the "LC Providers") securing the full amount of the loan. Details of the compensation arrangements contained in the Loan Guarantee Agreement are detailed in the Company's financial statements and quarterly report for the six month period ended June 30, 2007. The Agreement provided for the issuance of up to an additional 4,900,000 restricted common shares if the Company did note file a Registration Statement and if the Registration Statement did not become effective within certain time constraints. On April 20, 2007, the Company filed an SB2 Registration Statement and on May 11, 2007, the Registration Statement was declared effective. On August 8, 2007, the Company issued 1,625,000 restricted common shares which fully completed the compensation terms of the Agreement and by doing so the Company reduced the potential additional common stock dilution by 3,275,000 shares.
