LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2011) - Warnex Inc. (TSX:WNX) ("Warnex") announced today that it is currently in advanced negotiations to extend the maturity date of all of its outstanding convertible debentures (the "Existing Debentures") that have become due, and to obtain additional financing to cover current operating expenses as well as certain disbursements.

Warnex is not in a financial position to pay the principal and interest due on the Existing Debentures, all of which matured on November 8, 2011, and accordingly, is negotiating with the holders of the Existing Debentures to extend the maturity date and modify various other terms of the Existing Debentures.
