CIBT Reports Intention to Undertake Normal Course Issuer Bid

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - CIBT Education Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CPT)(OTCBB:CBTGF) reports that, subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, it intends to conduct a normal course issuer bid to purchase up to 1.5 million of its common shares representing approximately 2.4% of its issued and outstanding share capital. The normal course issuer bid will be conducted through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The share repurchase is being launched because management is of the view that the company's stock is currently undervalued. It will commence on the first trading day after the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted the filing of the notice concerning the bid and will continue for up to one year. Purchases will be made through Canaccord Capital Corporation. In the past 12 months, the company repurchased 999,600 common shares in a previous normal course issuer bid.
