Nexient Issues Update on Strategic Alternative Review



    SYDNEY, NS, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Nexient Learning Inc. (TSX: NXN), Canada's
largest corporate training company, announced today that the investors in the
proposed going private transaction of Nexient, previously announced on
January 31, 2008, have advised Nexient that they no longer intend to proceed
with the proposed transaction. Nexient is currently in discussions with its
debentureholders regarding an extension of the maturity of the debentures and
have received positive indications regarding their support for other
refinancing alternatives that are already underway. In the interim, the
outstanding secured debentures have been converted to a demand credit
facility. Management is optimistic that an agreement will be reached with the
lenders regarding a new loan facility in the near term.
    Nexient also announced today that discussions with the Toronto Stock
Exchange regarding the continued listing of Nexient's common shares on the TSX
are in progress and that, based on their discussions with the TSX and other
Canadian stock exchanges, management is confident that Nexient will remain
listed as a publicly-traded company at the conclusion of the previously
announced listing review.
