SAND Technology Receives NASDAQ Delisting Notice

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 4, 2005 -- SAND Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDT) announced today that it has been notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. ("Nasdaq") that its Class A Common Shares will be delisted from The Nasdaq SmallCap Market at the opening of business on August 9, 2005. The delisting notice was based upon the failure of SAND's Class A Common Shares to satisfy the minimum bid price requirement of Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4).

While SAND's Class A Common Shares will not be immediately eligible to trade on the OTCBB or in the "Pink Sheets," they will become eligible if a market maker applies to register in and quote the shares in accordance with SEC Rule 15c2-11 and such application is cleared. While there is no assurance that its application will be granted, SAND has been informed that at least one market maker has made such an application for the OTCBB.
