Momentum Receives Revised Expression of Interest

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 13, 2009) - Momentum Advanced Solutions Inc. (TSX:WWW), ("Momentum" or the "Company"), announced today that it had received a revised non-binding expression of interest from a company controlled by Sheldon Pollack and Phillip DeLeon, the Chief Executive Officer and President, respectively, of Momentum, with respect to the possible privatization of Momentum. The revised expression of interest indicated that the offeror would be prepared to increase the cash consideration from $0.20 per share to $0.22 per share in cash per common share to the shareholders of Momentum (other than Messrs Pollack and DeLeon, their associates and affiliates). Messrs Pollack and DeLeon reserve the right to reduce the cash consideration to $0.20 per share if the transaction is not completed prior to April 30, 2009. The balance of the earlier expression of interest remains unamended.

The expression of interest is non-binding and subject to conditions, including receipt of board, shareholder, regulatory and stock exchange approvals, completion of definitive documentation, financing and the finalization of all material terms between the parties. There can be no assurance that any transaction will be consummated on the proposed terms on any timetable or at all as a consequence of the delivery of the expression of interest.

Sheldon Pollack and Phillip DeLeon each own or control approximately 20% of the 64,105,577 outstanding common shares of Momentum.

An independent committee of the board of directors of Momentum has been formed to review the non-binding expression of interest and to consider other alternatives to enhance shareholder value. The committee has retained Pivotal Decisions Inc. as its strategic advisor. Meyers Norris Penny LLP has been engaged by the Committee to prepare a valuation.
