MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 17, 2005) -

Results of Operations-three months ending September 30, 2005

123% Increase in Total Sales

600%+ Increase in Gross Margin

28% Reduction in EBITDA Loss

15% Reduction in Net Loss

icefloe Technologies Inc. ("icefloe") (TSX VENTURE:ICY) today released its operating results for the 3 month period ending September 30, 2005 and the nine months ending September 30, 2005.

Total Third Quarter Sales were $574,568, an increase of $316,911 or 123% from the same period in 2004. Total Sales for the nine month period ending September 30, 2005 were $1,688,750, an increase of $663,798 or 64.8% from the nine month period ending September 30, 2004.

The increases were driven by sales of icefloe products; primarily continued sales of proprietary Booster products through icefloe's UK based partner Drinks Dispense Group (DDg); continued test market sales and installation of icefloe's Tower Booster technology incorporated in the Molson Canadian Sub Zero Draft Tower; and new sales of custom draft beer towers for Labatts' Keith's brand (the first Canadian sales of products manufactured by DDg and sold exclusively in Canada by icefloe).

icefloe's wholly-owned subsidiary, Draft Guys, whose primary business is sales, installation and service of on-premise draft beer systems for the hospitality industry, had a 56.5% increase in its core installation business in the quarter as a result of a stronger industry economy and the installation of the Molson Canadian Sub Zero Draft Towers for Molson Canada.

Overall, gross margin was $115,379 (20.1%) in the Third Quarter 2005, a six fold increase from the $18,434 reported in the same period in 2004, reflecting the strong growth of higher margin icefloe proprietary and exclusive products as well as a recovery at Draft Guys compared with the weak Third Quarter experienced in 2004.Year-to-date gross margin was 24.5% of sales compared with 17.7% in 2005.

"The strong growth trend is very encouraging, particularly as it reflects early success and acceptance of icefloe's core proprietary technologies", said Wayne Newson, icefloe's President and CEO. "Our year-over-year growth continued to ramp up in the Third Quarter of 2005."
