      -  The planned transaction is subject to certain conditions, including:

          of Alis, requiring an investment of approximately CAD$3.5 million by
          strategic Canadian and American partners.
      -  Upon closing of the transaction, Alis's new financial position will
          be characterized by CAD$2.7 million in cash, a net value of
          approximately CAD$2 million and expected revenue of CAD$4 million for
          the next 12 months for a forecast 15% profitability.
      -  Alis's only long-term liability at closing is expected to be
          CAD$750,000 in interest-free debt repayable over 10 years in annual
          instalments based on a percentage of the cash flow generated by
          Alis's activities.
      -  The planned transaction will enable Nstein to capitalize on a large
          portfolio of international customers consisting primarily of
          European and North American "Global 2000" companies.
      -  The planned transaction will also enable Nstein to capitalize on a
          sales force already working with major customers and skilled at
          selling Nstein solutions, and on internationally-recognized
          solutions that complement its own technology.
      -  Nstein considers the risks associated with integrating the
          commercial, legal, organizational, technological and administrative
          aspects of Alis to be minimized due to a detailed strategic plan
          involving all Nstein's senior management. Execution of the plan will
          be closely monitored on an ongoing basis.@@end@@
