GENESIS WORLDWIDE INC. PROVIDES UPDATE ON VOLUNTARY DELISTING FROM THE TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE AND NEX LISTING

VAUGHAN, ON, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Genesis Worldwide Inc. ("Genesis" or the "Company"), (TSX: GWI), a provider of 'green' structural building technology in the light steel structural products industry, announces that in order to allow the Company sufficient time to complete the proposed brokered private placement of common shares and warrants as previously announced on January 28, 2011, the Company has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to extend the voluntary delisting of its common shares from the TSX from February 12, 2011 or earlier, to February 18, 2011 at the close of market. As previously announced on October 22, 2010 and December 21, 2010, the Company was subject to a delisting review by the TSX as the Company did not meet continued listing requirements. 

In an effort to ensure uninterrupted trading of the Company's common shares, the Company has made application and has received approval from the NEX exchange, a separate board of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV'), to list its common shares, effective at market open on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.

Management of the Company believes that a transfer in its stock exchange listing to the TSXV-NEX would provide greater operational efficiency, further access to adequate financing, and lower costs for the Company, while allowing shareholders continued liquidity on a recognized TMX Group board.
