NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Shift Networks Inc. ("Shift") (TSX VENTURE:SHF) announced today that it has cancelled the previously announced financing engagement with Northern Securities Inc. ("Northern") pursuant to which Northern had agreed to purchase 7,692,308, units on a firm underwriting basis, subject to certain conditions, for aggregate gross proceeds to Shift of $10 million.

"Shift will not be proceeding with the financing Northern came to us with in October and as a result Shift has terminated the relationship which I believe to be in the best interests of our shareholders at this time," said Trent Johnsen, President and CEO, Shift Networks. "Shift has achieved tremendous performance this year by way of customer growth, market expansion and innovation, establishing a leadership position in a significant growth market. We are exploring a variety of equity and debt alternatives to continue to finance and accelerate Shift's growth."

The Company also said that it will not proceed with its previously announced share consolidation.

"The proposed share consolidation was part of this financing structure. We do not feel the consolidation is in the best interests of our shareholders at this time," added Mr. Johnsen.
