VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT) today reported the formal business of the Company's Annual General Meeting, held on March 5, 2008.

At the Annual General Meeting, the shareholders approved the following resolutions:

Election of Directors

Fixed the number of Directors at six and elected the persons proposed in the Information Circular to the Company's Board of Directors; namely, Kevin O'Neill, Michael Jacobs, David Christie, Alan Moloff, Robert Di Silvio, and Edward Bence.

Appointment of Auditors

The reappointment of Morgan & Company chartered accountants, as auditors of the Company.

Continuation and Amendment of the Share Option Plan

The amendment of the Company's Stock Option Plan to reflect the Company's graduation from Tier 2 to Tier 1 Issuer status.

Shareholder Rights Plan

The approval of a Shareholder Rights Plan Agreement to ensure the fair treatment of all shareholders in connection with any take-over bid for the outstanding common shares of the Company. The plan adopted by the Board of Directors on October 24, 2007, provides adequate time for shareholders and the Board to evaluate and assess a take-over bid without facing undue pressure or coercion; it also provides the Board with an opportunity to explore alternative transactions in order to maximize shareholder value.

Amendment to the Escrow Agreement

Approval was granted on a disinterested shareholder basis to adopt a new form of escrow agreement and reduce the number of escrow shares by 1,750,000. The new form of agreement will allow the remaining escrow shares to be released from escrow over time instead of on an earn out basis. The adoption of this new form of agreement and the proposed release schedule (three years), are subject to TSXV approval. The shareholders also approved a redistribution of the escrow shares such that these shares will be held by current members of the Board and Management, as well as the Company's Founders and Co-Inventors.
