DoveCorp Announces Results of Sale Process

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2007) - DoveCorp Enterprise Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DOV), announced today that the CCAA Monitor (RSM Richter) has now identified what it believes to be the best offers for DoveCorp's assets.

On July 12, 2007, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court") issued an order (the "Initial Order") granting the Company protection pursuant to the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"). RSM Richter Inc. was appointed the CCAA Monitor (the "Monitor").

Pursuant to a sale process approved by the terms of the Initial Order, prospective buyers were required to submit offers to the Monitor by August 22, 2007. The Monitor received a number of offers by the deadline. On August 30, 2007, the Monitor made a recommendation to the Independent Committee of the Board of Directors as to the best offers and following consideration of the key aspects of the various offers, the Independent Committee confirmed its agreement with the Monitor's recommendation.

The Monitor intends to work with the parties that submitted the offers over the next several weeks to close the transactions. This process includes seeking the Court's approval of the recommended transaction. Obtaining the Court's approval and closing the transaction is projected to take two to three weeks.

The results of the Court approved sales process has revealed a range of values for the assets of the Company that indicate the shareholders are unlikely to recover any value for their shares and therefore do not likely have any continuing economic interest in the Company.

Information regarding DoveCorp's restructuring can be found on the Monitor's website of RSM Richter Inc. at:

In a continuing effort to reduce costs, the position of Chief Financial Officer has been eliminated.
