Intrinsyc Software Closes $8 Million Debenture Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 4, 2005) -

Crucial step forward in company's strategic drive to develop the world's leading Windows CE-based mobile phone operating system

Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. (TSX:ICS) today announced the completion of an $8.0 million financing with Wellington Financial Fund II ("Wellington Financial").

The financing is by way of secured debentures maturing on October 3, 2007. The maturity date may be extended by one year if Intrinsyc meets certain pre-determined financial targets and may also accelerate in certain circumstances including a default by the Corporation or in the event of a change of control of the Corporation. Intrinsyc has the right to repay the debentures in whole or in part, subject to certain restrictions. The debentures have an annual interest rate of 12.5% with monthly payments of interest only until maturity, and are secured by a charge over all of the assets of Intrinsyc and its subsidiaries. The net proceeds from the financing of approximately $7.0 million after deducting fees and expenses relating to the financing will be used primarily to fund the development of Intrinsyc's Windows CE-based mobile phone operating system, as well as for general working capital. As part of the financing, Intrinsyc has agreed to appoint Mark McQueen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wellington Financial LP, to Intrinsyc's Board of Directors.

Concurrent with the financing, Intrinsyc has issued to Wellington Financial an aggregate of 3,870,968 special warrants of Intrinsyc. Each special warrant is exercisable, without payment of additional consideration, for one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Intrinsyc at an exercise price of $0.62 per share at any time prior to October 3, 2010.

"The Wellington investment in Intrinsyc Software is a strong vote of confidence in the company's core business and its strategic drive to develop the world's leading Windows CE-based mobile phone operating system," said Derek Spratt, CEO, Intrinsyc. "Recent research by Strategy Analytics estimates that sales of mobile phone handsets reached 361 million in the first half of 2005 and forecasts 775 million units for the full-year 2005. This represents a massive opportunity for independent mobile phone operating systems now and in the future. Intrinsyc's long standing relationship with Microsoft and expertise of Windows development ideally positions us to productize mobile phones based on Windows CE and we are very excited about the future."

Genuity Capital Markets acted as exclusive financing agent for Intrinsyc on the offering.
