    Proposed Sale of Wellcore Assets

    CALGARY, Aug. 29 /CNW/ - Decision Dynamics Technology Ltd. (TSXV: DDY)
announced today that its directors have unanimously approved, and Decision
Dynamics and its U.S. subsidiary (collectively, "Decision Dynamics" or the
"Company") have entered into, a formal purchase and sale agreement with a
subsidiary of P2 Energy Solutions, Inc. for the sale of the Company's Wellcore
oil and gas well life cycle management software platform, which includes all
of the assets, (including all applicable intellectual property) and personnel
associated with the development, marketing, sale and support of the Wellcore
software application (collectively the "Wellcore Assets").
    "The Company has been assessing strategic alternatives for its businesses
throughout 2008. Our strategic evaluations and initiatives led to active
discussions with P2 Energy Solutions, the industry's leading provider of oil
and gas information technology solutions. These discussions have culminated in
our entering into a formal purchase and sale agreement for the sale of our
Wellcore Assets. Of paramount importance to both the Company and P2 Energy
Solutions during the negotiations leading to the approval and execution of the
Wellcore Asset sale agreement has been a commitment to ensuring that
Wellcore's customers' investments in the Wellcore product remain secure and
future-oriented. To this end, P2 Energy Solutions has committed to continue
developing and enhancing the Wellcore products," said Justin Zinke, DDY's
Chief Executive Officer. "The sale of the Wellcore Assets enables the Company
to focus on growing its remaining products and business, including the Oncore
line of products. In addition, the proceeds from the Wellcore Asset sale will
allow the Company to aggressively invest in the sales and marketing resources
needed to allow the Company to finish the development of its next generation
of products."
    "The combination of Wellcore's and P2 Energy Solutions' products helps
solidify our focus on creating a more comprehensive solution for customers,"
said Gary Vickers, CEO of P2 Energy Solutions. "In addition, we are excited at
the prospect of integrating our products and people to evolve our combined
solutions to best meet the needs of our current and future customers."
    Completion of the proposed sale of the Wellcore Assets (the
"Transaction") is subject to the terms and satisfaction of the conditions set
forth in the formal purchase and sale agreement between Decision Dynamics and
the P2 Energy Solutions subsidiary (the "Wellcore Asset Sale Agreement"),
which include, among other conditions, that the Company receive TSX Venture
Exchange ("TSXV") approval prior to closing. TSXV approval requires that DDY
shareholders holding more than 50% of the outstanding shares have consented in
writing to the Transaction. Under the Wellcore Asset Sale Agreement, P2 Energy
Solutions has agreed to cash consideration of CAD$5 Million for the Wellcore
Assets, subject to holdback and release conditions. Decision Dynamics is to
receive approximately 80% of the proposed consideration upon the Transaction
    Under the Wellcore Asset Sale Agreement, P2 Energy Solutions acknowledged
that it will license back to Decision Dynamics rights to use and support the
Company's X-core technology (the X-core assets are being conveyed by Decision
Dynamics to P2 Energy Solutions pursuant to the proposed Transaction), which
is the foundational technology for Decision Dynamic's Linecore product line.
None of DDY's Oncore assets are being conveyed to P2 Energy Solutions pursuant
to the Transaction.
    The Company expects the Transaction to be completed during September
