BakBone Software Updates Timing for Completion of FY06 Form 10-K

    SAN DIEGO, June 1 /CNW/-- BakBone Software, Incorporated (Pink Sheets:  
BKBO) announced today that additional time will be required to complete the
filing of its comprehensive 10-K for fiscal year ended March 31, 2006. The
Company had previously expected to complete this process during the month of
    (Logo: )
    "One of the questions we receive from stakeholders is why this process
takes so long and deadlines continue to be missed," commented Jim Johnson,
president and CEO of BakBone.  "Progress is very good and we are approaching
the finish line.  When we announced in early May that a few additional weeks
were needed to complete this process, we believed this would be the case.
Considering the complexity of the issues at hand -- appropriate allocation of
revenues, as well as the appropriate recording and timing of expenses, as well
as a review of complex technology and accounting matters relating to each
transaction from earlier periods -- and the volume of materials to be
evaluated, additional time is required to complete the testing and review
phases.  Consequently, we currently expect to file the FY06 10-K no sooner
than the end of July."
    Once the Company has concluded its work on the FY06 10-K, management will
update stakeholders on its expectations regarding outstanding filings for
fiscal year 2007.
