MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 24, 2006) - icefloe Technologies Inc. ("icefloe") (TSX VENTURE:ICY) today released its operating statements for the three-month and six-month periods ending June 30, 2006.

- Second Quarter Sales were $963,058, an increase of $235,406 or 32.4% from the same period in 2005.

- Six Month Gross Margin is $343,533 or 26.4% of sales, an increase of $44,850 or 15.0% from the same period in 2005

- Second Quarter Net Loss was $398,158, an improvement of $150,445 or 27.4% from the same period in 2005

"The Second Quarter results reflect strong growth in proprietary icefloe product sales, which was partially reduced by a significant decrease in sales at our wholly owned installation subsidiary, Draft Guys," said Wayne Newson, icefloe's President and CEO. "Sales of icefloe's proprietary products were up 126.5% in the second quarter, and are up 83.5% for the six month period. This increase was driven by sales resulting from a supply and services agreement with Molson Coors Canada and sales to the United Kingdom through our UK based sales and marketing partner, Drinks Dispense Group (DDg)."

"Draft guys revenue was down 44% in the second quarter and is down 38% for the six month period, which reflects an industry-wide decline in the number of new installations for major breweries and one-time sales of Branded Beer Towers in 2005," Newson continued.

"We anticipate continued growth in sales and margins for the second half of 2006, fuelled mainly by icefloe products," added Mr. Newson.
