TORONTO, Ontario (May 23, 2007) – Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX: PNP), a Canadian investment company, announces that it acquired ownership debentures convertible into 5,000,000 (the “Debentures”) common shares of Sofame Technologies Inc. (“Sofame”) and common share purchase warrants convertible into 2,500,000 common shares of Sofame (the “Warrants”).  Each Debenture entitles the holder thereof to convert into one common share of Sofame at a conversion price of $0.10 until May 16, 2009 and at a conversion price of $0.11 thereafter.  Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share until May 16, 2009 at a price of $0.15.  As a result of this transaction, Pinetree and its joint actors held, as at May 16, 2007, rights to acquire an aggregate of 8,342,593 common shares of Sofame (the “Convertible Securities”), including the Debentures and the Warrants, or approximately 11.2% of all issued and outstanding common shares as at May 16, 2007, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Convertible Securities only.  In the event that only the Debentures and the Warrants owned directly by Pinetree are fully exercised, the direct holdings of Pinetree represent approximately 10.1% of all issued and outstanding common shares of Sofame as of May 23, 2007, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Debentures and the Warrants only.

These transactions were made for investment purposes and Pinetree and each of its joint actors could increase or decrease their respective investments in Sofame depending on market conditions or any other relevant factor.
