SHEP Technologies Inc.: Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 19, 2006) - SHEP TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCBB:STLOF) ("STI" or "the Company") wishes to provide further information to shareholders in light of its news release dated January 17, 2006 covering the proposed acquisition of Pay2™ Ltd. Specifically, the Company wishes to update the status of its Stored Hydraulic Energy Propulsion ("SHEP") hybrid technology. STI has actively been seeking project financing for the SHEP development program over the past 18 months in order to successfully complete and demonstrate the X-type Jaguar prototype in order to seek a strategic commercial alliance and commercialization financing.

STI acknowledges that the funding delays experienced to date have had a negative affect on the commercial prospects for its technology. Nonetheless, the Company continues discussions seeking a relationship that will enable the promising SHEP technology to be commercially developed. Funding is required to satisfy company creditors and provide the needed capital going forward. STI will provide relevant information to shareholders in this regard.

Management will keep shareholders apprised of progress in this regard.
