CCNMatthews and KnowledgeView Sign News Distribution Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2006) - CCNMatthews, Canada's leading distributor of news releases for public companies and KnowledgeView Ltd., the UK-based developer of powerful news management and editorial systems, with clients in the UK, North America and the Middle East, have announced an agreement that will allow KnowledgeView's clients to receive and package CCNMatthews' news.

Several major news sources - for example the Dow Jones newswire - are now provided to KnowledgeView's clients. CCNMatthews' news - currently over 750 news releases per week from sources in Canada and the UK - will now be added to the total news content provided by KnowledgeView. All of this news content provided to KnowledgeView's clients can be sorted and managed through the use of RAPID Browser, KnowledgeView's proprietary editing system that assists publishers in readying news content for publication.

KnowledgeView's client base is particularly strong in the Middle East, where they work with a number of leading newspapers, including Al-Hayat, Annahar, Jordanian Al-Ghad, Al-Riyadh, Ittihad and L'Orient Le Jour. As CCNMatthews carries the news for many of Canada's leading energy companies based in Alberta, the news provided to KnowledgeView by CCNMatthews will be of considerable relevance. "Our clients will benefit greatly from having this additional distribution through KnowledgeView," said Bernadette Lee, VP Corporate Development of CCNMatthews. "Not only will our energy-industry clients appreciate this extra exposure, but any Canadian company with global aspirations will benefit as KnowledgeView also has strong ties with trade publications and weekly newspaper groups in the UK", said Ms. Lee.

Dr. Ali Al-Assam, Managing Director of KnowledgeView said: "We are delighted to have the premium CCNMatthews news content, with its excellent classification, available to our publishing clients in the UK and the Middle East, especially with the type of business coverage, particularly energy news, that is available from CCNMatthews, much sought after by the market. The CCNMatthews news content will be available through our RAPIDPublish.info service in Europe, to be launched on the 29th March, and the Fareeda.info service in the Middle East."
