QuStream Receives Government Order and Provides Update on Government Business

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 22, 2006) - QuStream Corporation ("QuStream") (TSX VENTURE:QVC) announced today that it received a significant purchase order from a U.S. governmental agency. The amount of the order is approximately US$400,000.

Including the above order, QuStream has booked (note 1) US Government orders totaling approximately US$1.4 million since the end of the second quarter which ended June 30, 2006.

"While we were disappointed with the slow start to the year for government orders, we are pleased with the recent sales activity and order flow," said Frederick L. Godard, Chairman, President and CEO.

Note 1:

The Company uses terms such as bookings, shipments and backlog. These terms are not defined by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Our usage of these terms may vary from the usage adopted by other companies. We believe that the combination of bookings (purchase orders received by the company), shipments (orders shipped by the company and invoiced) and closing backlog (opening backlog, plus bookings less shipments) provides a useful indictor for determining how our products are being received by the market and the economic health of the market as it relates to demand for our products. Closing backlog is not a guarantee of future revenues and provides no information about the timing on which future revenue may be recorded. We report our bookings, shipments and backlog in US dollars to reflect the underlying currency of the majority of such contracts and, therefore, reduce the volatility that would result from converting the measure to Canadian dollars.
