iSIGN Media Expands Upon Its Planned Acquisition of Pinpoint Media Group

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 27, 2011) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company")(TSX VENTURE:ISD) is pleased to discuss the key points behind its previously announced Letter of Intent to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares and secured debt of Pinpoint Media Group Inc. ("Pinpoint").

The Company expects that ownership of Pinpoint's digital signage networks will enable us to more quickly deploy our software solution within both the Alimentation Couche- Tard Inc. ("Couche-Tard") and City of Calgary locations, which will result in a faster realization of revenue from our Interactive Marketing Solution ("IMS") 3.1 software. Pinpoint's digital signage networks consist of approximately 5,600 located in Couch-Tard's chain of convenience stores across Canada and 300 located in the City of Calgary's municipal buildings.

Once the installation of our software in the convenience store chain is completed, we will have the world's largest fully interactive digital signage network, reaching an average of 1.5 million consumers a day throughout our convenience store network alone. Through our ownership of this network, we expect that we will be able to better demonstrate ROI to brands and retailers by helping them increase sales within the Couche-Tard environment, while showing the advantages that our IMS patent-pending software and its various reporting features can bring to all retailers and brands.

This network will be used as a showcase to present to the advertising and retail communities, the power that traditional digital signage, integrated with and enhanced by our IMS 3.1 software solution has and how it can bring to advertising campaigns tremendous benefits that would be realized by other retailers and operators in a variety of vertical markets (ex: restaurants, fast food outlets, shopping malls, car dealerships, theaters, real estate offices, etc).

It is our belief that by converting Pinpoint's networks into interactive digital signage networks, we will be able to fully maximize their inherent revenue potential, while retaining that revenue for the consolidated Company.

In addition, the Company would like to point out that Pinpoint, at the date of acquisition, will have either a positive or neutral working capital ratio and will have no long-term debt other than the note that it has entered into with iSIGN, which will be eliminated in the Company's consolidated financial statements.
