Knobias, Inc. Announces Ezenia, Inc. as the SPOT of the Week in Its Small-Cap ClipReport

RIDGELAND, MS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 17, 2005 -- Knobias, Inc. (OTC BB: KNBS) announced today that it has selected Ezenia, Inc. (OTC BB: EZEN) as the SPOT of the week in the Knobias Small-Cap "ClipReport."

Ezenia! Inc. is a leading provider of real-time collaboration solutions for corporate and governmental networks and eBusiness. Award-winning products enable groups to interact securely through a natural meeting experience regardless of geographic distance. EZEN's InfoWorkSpace (IWS) software product enables voice communication, instant messaging, white boarding, virtual workspaces, and video conferencing across a wide range of networks including LANs, intranets, internet, and circuit-based networks.

The Bulls say...

- Good Enough for Gov't Work: EZEN's software is relied upon by the world's most reliable and growing customer... the US Gov't. The US is spending billions to support operations in every corner of the globe like never before. EZEN provides a "must-have" tool that reduces costs and improves efficiency by enabling secure collaboration of operational assets regardless of geographic proximity. Proof of EZEN's value is evidence by the 7th consecutive license renewal by the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in March. The recent addition of retired Lt General Thomas McInerney to EZEN's Board will only help the company's military and intelligence business.

The Bears say...

- Precarious Chart: EZEN is trading near 4-year highs ($2.95) set in May. After skyrocketing in March on the DIA contract renewal, the stock has traded in a very extended range between $2.00-$2.60. Currently, the 100-day moving average ($2.389) has "caught-up" with the stock price presenting a dilemma for the stock price. The stock may hold and return higher as was the case in June and again in August... OR... support levels may be broken and the March gap may be partially filled. Q3 earnings may be the short-term key.
