Grid Cloud Cancels Dividend and Announces 50:1 Reverse Stock Split in Response to Clearing Firm's New Rules for Stocks Trading Under 10 Cents

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Grid Cloud Solutions Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GRDC) today announced the cancellation of their previously announced restricted stock dividend and a corporate re-organization, owing to recent changes of policy of the Pension Financial Services regarding the clearing of stocks priced below $0.10 dated June 24, 2011.

In response to rules and guidelines from Penson's Notice to All Correspondents -- New Low Priced Securities Deposit Policy, the board approved the cancellation of the dividend previously announced for July 15, 2011 and the implementation of a new reverse split. According to a bulletin from Penson Financial Services Inc "PFSI," effective June 24, 2011, PFSI has instituted changes to its securities processing policies and will no longer accept deposits of equity securities traded on the Pink Sheet or OTC Bulletin Board markets priced below $0.10. Additionally PFSI, on a case-by-case basis, may be restricting sale activity in such accounts, or even closing accounts when necessary.

Given that PFSI is one of the world's largest clearing firms, management feels this policy is likely to spread throughout the industry and affect a growing number of shareholders.

"As GRDC has traded below $0.10 for some time now, we feel it is in our shareholders' best interest to cancel the restricted stock dividend announced for July 15, 2011, while initiating a 50:1 reverse stock split. This decision was based on our efforts to allow shareholders to be unaffected by PFSI's new policies, while preserving the opportunity for the company to raise additional capital to meet its current growth strategy," stated Danny Wong, CEO.

Management will update its shareholders with the effective date of the reverse stock split when it becomes available.
