RIVER EDGE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- Vemics, Inc. (OTC: VMCI), a leading provider of hosted, real-time conferencing and collaboration applications, announced today that the U.S. House of Representatives Defense Appropriations Conference Committee has approved funding for the Exceptional Family Transitional Training (EFTT) program in the amount of $1,000,000.00 dollars.

Vemics and EP Global Communications (EP) will work closely on a number of initiatives including the creation and real-time distribution of courseware incorporating video, voice and data collaboration and deep program support.

"We are extremely proud to be associated with such a worthwhile program," said Fred Zolla, CEO Vemics, Inc.
