Ignition Point Announces Commencement of Foreclosure Action by Secured Creditors and Resignation of Directors and Officers

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - Ignition Point Technologies Corp. (TSX-V:IPN)
(the "Company") announces that it has received notice of the commencement of
foreclosure action by the holders of its secured convertible debentures. The
Company is indebted to them for approximately $2.8 million as at December 31,
2008 and has been in default of its interest payment obligations under this
debt since May 2008. The Company has no cash or current assets.
    The Company has attempted for nearly a year to reach a settlement with
the debenture holders and secure additional financing without success. Its
sole asset is its shareholdings in TeraSpan Networks Inc., which it judges to
have a value that is substantially less than the amount owed to its secured
creditors. The foreclosure action will result in the seizure by the secured
creditors of the Company's shareholdings in TeraSpan and the extinguishment of
the debt owed to those creditors.
    In light of the circumstances, all of the directors and officers of the
Company have resigned or will do so very shortly. The Company expects that the
TSX Venture Exchange will delist the Company's common shares and that the
securities regulatory authorities will issue a cease trade order in respect of
those shares.
