Decision Dynamics Continues to Report Increased Revenue Over Same Period Last Year

    Strong Sales Growth in First Nine Months Results in 42% Increase in
    Revenue over 2006

    CALGARY, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - Decision Dynamics Technology Ltd. (the
"Company") (Decision Dynamics; TSX-V: DDY), a leading provider of operations
management software for the energy industry, today reported continuing strong
revenues. Sales of $1.8 million were achieved for the quarter, and sales of
nearly $7.6 million have been achieved year to date.
    Revenue for the first nine months of 2007 was up 42% over the first nine
months of 2006 as a result of strong sales growth for both Wellcore and
Oncore. The cost reduction plan implemented late last year resulted in a 20%
reduction in expenses. "The slow down in the Canadian oil service industry has
had some impact; however, we are seeing a lot of interest in the new
functionality developed this year." said Justin Zinke, Decision Dynamic's
Chief Executive Officer, "We are very optimistic about our future prospects
and are continuing to make progress with cost reductions and sales growth."

    Although sales for the third quarter were of 2007 were essentially flat
when compared to Q3 06, license revenues both for the quarter and for the
first nine months of 2007 were up compared to the same periods in 2006. This
higher percentage of license sales has contributed to a gross margin increase
of 12%, from 56% to 68% for the comparable nine month periods.
    Expenses have been decreased by about 20% when compared to the same
period last year due to staff reductions and other cost cutting measures. In
addition, the Company has reallocated resources from overhead and operations
to sales and marketing.
    During the summer, the Company raised $2.5 million (net of agent's
commission) through the private placement of common shares and warrants. These
funds are being used to increase market penetration in the United States,
accelerate new product development and augment working capital.

    (1) "Gross profit" is revenue less cost of sales and gross margin is
        gross profit divided by revenue expressed as a percentage.

    (2) "EBITDAS" means earnings from continuing operations before interest,
        taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock based compensation. It
        may be derived by subtracting stock based compensation (other than
        expenses resulting from the Share Accumulation Plan which are cash
        based) from the subtotal titled "Loss before the undernoted" on the
        Statement of Loss and Deficit.

        Gross profit, gross margin and EBITDAS do not have a standardized
        meaning under GAAP and may not be comparable to the same terms as
        used by other entities in the industry; however, the Company believes
        they are an important measure of performance and indicator of success
        for software businesses and are relevant to readers within the
        investment community.
