MTI Global Inc. Delays Announcement and Filing of Its Third Quarter Financial Statements and Related MD&A

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2008) - MTI Global Inc. (TSX:MTI) today announced that the dissemination and filing of its financial statements for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008 and related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") will be delayed.

The delay is the result of the Company failing its Step One Goodwill and Intangible Asset Test. Consequently, the Company is proceeding to complete a Step Two Valuation. The Company continues to work diligently with its auditors to resolve this issue. As soon as the Company has greater clarity on the completion of the valuation, it will provide further disclosure related to the timing of the dissemination and filing of the third quarter financial statements and related MD&A, as well as details for the quarterly conference call discussion of results.

As a result of this delay, the Company intends to request that the Ontario Securities Commission and other applicable Canadian securities regulators issue a temporary management cease-trade order prohibiting specified directors, officers and other insiders of the Company from trading in securities of the Company until the third quarter financial statements and MD&A are publicly released and filed. The issuance of such a cease-trade order generally does not affect the ability of persons who are not directors, officers or other insiders of the Company to trade in the Company's securities. Pending the filing of the third quarter financial statements and related MD&A, the Company will comply with the alternative information guidelines of the Canadian Securities Administrators.
