"We are very excited about the completion of this transaction. The benefits of the Visiphor-Sunaptic combination have been increasingly clear to both companies during the closing period" said Visiphor President and CEO Roy Trivett. "This expands the scope of our solution expertise to include all aspects of business process integration. The new domain expertise in health care and financial services will fuel accelerated expansion of our customer base in these areas."

Mike Hilton the President of Sunaptic added "Combining with Visiphor gives us the critical mass needed for rapid growth as a leading provider of business integration solutions. This will allow us to immediately expand the profitable business that Sunaptic has established in the health care and financial services arenas."

The cash portion of the consideration for the acquisition was funded by interim loan financing that Visiphor will repay in full through partial proceeds of its brokered private placement, which is anticipated to close on or about November 25, 2005. The original terms of the brokered private placement were amended as set out in Visiphor's news release dated November 18, 2005.
