(TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions, announced today that it has received notice from all remaining corporate debenture holders of their intention to exercise the conversion to share option.

This process includes the conversion of $210,000 of 10 percent Series L Convertible Debentures maturing March 31, 2013 ("Series L") and $535,000 of 10 percent Series N Convertible Debentures maturing December 12, 2011 ("Series N"), into an aggregate 7,450,000 common shares of the Company.

We deeply appreciate this vote of confidence from the note holders and will continue to focus on the execution of our strategic plan to the benefit of all stakeholders."
