VillageEDOCS Announces Sale of Its Resolutions Business Unit

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - VillageEDOCS, Inc. (OTCBB: VEDO), a Software as a Service company providing proprietary on-demand outsource business solutions, today announced that it has completed the sale of substantially all of the assets of its wholly owned subsidiary Phoenix Forms, Inc. (dba "Resolutions") to DocPath Corp. for $970,000 in cash, plus the return of 10 million warrants with an exercise price of $0.15 per share. These warrants were originally issued as consideration in the acquisition of Resolutions by VillageEDOCS in April 2005, in addition to $432,000 in cash and promissory notes in the aggregate of $200,000.

"In November, we received an unsolicited offer for the sale of Resolutions and, after careful consideration, felt it was in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders to proceed with the transaction, which we view as being very positive from a number of perspectives," stated Mason Conner, Chief Executive Officer of VillageEDOCS, Inc.

"We are quite pleased with the return on our initial investment and the resulting reduction in our fully diluted share count with the return of the 10 million warrants," Mr. Conner said. "The cash received from this transaction will enable the Company to significantly reduce its debt with the immediate satisfaction of a required payment of an $840,000 note due on December 12, 2007 under an existing line of credit with a financial institution that is secured by the assets of our GSI subsidiary."

"In addition, our previously announced pending acquisition of Questys, Inc., which we expect to close by Dec 31, subject to normal closing conditions, will substantially replace all of the functionality and services which Resolutions had provided. The acquisition of Questys, with trailing twelve month sales of approximately $3.6 million and net income in the range of $250,000 to $300,000, will more than make up for the loss of revenue and profit from the Resolutions business unit," Mr. Conner added.
