Route1 Takes Action to Collect Delinquent Accounts



    TORONTO, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - Route1 Inc.(TM) (TSX-V:ROI), the trusted provider
of security and identity management network solutions, announced today that it
has filed Statements of Claim against certain customers relating to
non-payment of invoices. The customers have maintained that based on
non-sanctioned verbal representations made to them by certain employees of
Route1 who are no longer with the Company, they were not obligated to make
payment in accordance with the terms of the written binding purchase
agreements. As reflect in the Statements of Claim, the customers entered into
binding written agreements with Route1 to purchase MobiKEYs that were
delivered in 2007 for which revenue of approximately $500,000 was recorded
during the nine months ended September 30, 2007 on the strength of these
agreements. To the best of Route1's knowledge, the customers in question are
solvent and Route1 intends to take all necessary steps to pursue its rights
and collect the full amount owing to the Company.
    "We are confident in our legal position given the binding nature of the
purchase agreements in question," said Andrew White, President and CEO of
Route1.
