Pulse Data announces approval of Shareholder Rights Plan by shareholders



    TSX: PSD

    CALGARY, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - Pulse Data Inc. ("Pulse" or the "Company")
announces that its Shareholder Rights Plan (the "Plan") was approved by its
shareholders at the Special Shareholders' Meeting today.
    
    The results of the voting were as follows:

    -   Approximately 56% of the outstanding Pulse shares were voted at the
        Special Shareholders Meeting. Of the Pulse shares voted at the
        meeting, approximately 75% were voted in favour of the Plan and
        approximately 25% were voted against.

    -   Excluding the Pulse shares owned by ValueAct Capital (a joint actor
        in respect of the Seitel Offer), all of which Pulse believes were
        voted against the Plan, an overwhelming 98% of the remaining
        Pulse shares voted at the Special Shareholders Meeting were voted in
        favour of the Plan.

    -   In addition, Pulse received a proxy representing 4,123,386 Pulse
        shares from a shareholder voting in favour of the Plan, which proxy
        was not voted at the Special Shareholders Meeting as it was received
        before the meeting but after the proxy deadline. Had such proxy been
        included in the voting results, there would have been approximately
        64% of the outstanding Pulse shares voted at the meeting, of which
        approximately 78% would have been voted in favour of the Plan
        (representing approximately 99% of the total number of Pulse shares
        that would have been voted, excluding those owned by ValueAct
        Capital.)

    Pulse reminds its shareholders that the Plan provides two important
protections to shareholders in case of take-over bids such as the current
Seitel Offer:

    1.  The Plan prevents a creeping take-over of the Company, by requiring
        that any take-over offer must be accepted by shareholders holding a
        majority of the outstanding shares (other than those held by the
        offeror); and

    2.  The Plan provides the Company with additional time to pursue
        alternatives to maximize shareholder value.
    

    Pulse also announces that with respect to the Seitel Offer, the Board of
Directors has deferred the Separation Time of the rights issued under the Plan
until September 28, 2007.
