Northcore Provides Corporate Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2011) - Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions is pleased to provide a corporate update on a number of activities.

Northcore has continued to execute against corporate goals with a focus on the progressive improvement of the company's balance sheet. This quarter has seen a number of important accomplishments in this regard.

  • Conditional approval has been received from the Toronto Stock Exchange to proceed with the previously announced asset acquisition of all Discount This Holdings Limited's Intellectual Properties, commonly known as the "Discount This Platform". This purchase is significant because of the value of the intrinsic Intellectual Property, particularly given the explosive growth of the group commerce market segment.

  • Northcore has now launched a dedicated web presence for Northcore Labs. The site, located at will serve as a nexus for potential partners looking to get information on existing projects and those seeking to explore new Intellectual Property initiatives.

  • The company has retired all of the original principal amounts of the Series L and N Convertible Debentures. As a result of these conversions, Northcore has successfully removed all non-operational debt from its balance sheet.

"As I have previously stated, we feel that it is necessary to ensure that our shareholders are aware of our execution against stated goals," said Amit Monga, CEO of Northcore Technologies. "With the acquisition of the Discount This Platform and the subsequent launch of the Northcore Labs web site, we have strengthened both our IP holdings and potential pipeline. Just as importantly, we have positioned the corporation to exit fiscal year 2011 debt free due to the conversions of all remaining debentures. These achievements represent important steps along the path to a stronger Northcore and a corresponding increase in shareholder value."
