TORONTO and SINGAPORE, June 29 /CNW/ - OceanLake Commerce Inc.
(OLI-TSX-V, OLIKF.PK) is pleased to announce that it has executed a formal
licensing agreement on June 28, 2007, ("Agreement") granting Jabios H.K

Taiwan. Jabios will undertake the marketing and promotion of the service,
which will be hosted and operated by OceanLake.
meemo is an affordable, real-time, push e-mail service. It allows users
with any internet-enabled mobile phone or PDA to send and receive e-mail from
their existing e-mail accounts at a fraction of the cost of other solutions in
the market place. The service was recently launched by OceanLake in the United
States and will be launched in Canada in early July.
"In parallel with our direct to consumer launch in the US and Canada, we
look forward to working with Jabios to drive even further reach for this
service in Asia.", stated William Car, President and CEO of OceanLake. "meemo
allows users to send and receive e-mail as easily as a text message. Multiple
email accounts can be configured with the service to ensure that whether at
work or play, you stay in touch."
Under the terms of the Agreement, OceanLake will receive a license fee as
well as a royalty on the gross revenue generated through the marketing and use
of OceanLake's Mobile Mail platform and license for the brand "meemo".
OceanLake will also be providing management and technical support services to
Jabios for a predetermined fee. Jabios is on-track to begin offering meemo
directly to mobile phone users, regardless of the carrier they use in Taiwan
in the third quarter of 2007.
"We are excited to offer this service in partnership with OceanLake to
bring affordable, push mobile e-mail to everyone. This geography represents
approximately 23 million mobile subscribers, most of whom today are not
receiving e-mail on their phone", said Furuya Yoshio, Chairman of Jabios. "We
see tremendous opportunity for this service in Taiwan where mobile penetration
is over 100%. There is no new hardware to buy, no expensive long-term
contracts and no configuration of your phone required. This really is mobile
e-mail for everyone."
This announcement continues OceanLake's growth strategy to take its
platforms and services global through strategic partnerships. By leveraging
the relationships of partners in various regions, OceanLake is accelerating
its ability to move into new markets quickly.
