    Total Gross Proceeds of $1,840,000 Raised in 2008


    TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - MedcomSoft Inc. (TSX - MSF) today announced that
its previously announced private placement has closed and that it has issued
10,720,000 common shares at a price of $0.125 per share to raise gross
proceeds of $1,340,000. This financing, combined with a non-brokered private
placement of four million shares at $0.125 that was completed on January 29,
2008, brings the total gross proceed raised by the Company since the beginning
of the year to $1.84 million.
    In early January, MedcomSoft announced a new board of directors resulting
from the first phase of an independent strategic review of the Company that
was undertaken by Capital Partners Corporation and Mr. Robert Wilson.
Mr. Wilson continues to serve as an expert advisor to a Special Executive
Committee of the board that has been given a mandate to lead the necessary
changes within the Company and to search for a new US-based Chief Executive
    "With this financing completed, the attention of the Special Executive
Committee can now be focused on implementing changes that have been identified
to better enable MedcomSoft to exploit the market potential of the Company's
award winning software solutions," noted Dr. Steven Small, chairman of the
    Paradigm Capital Inc., the agent for this financing, received a
commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds, which amount was paid as to 2.5%
in cash and 2.5% in shares, and was granted compensation warrants entitling it
to acquire 7% of the common shares issued pursuant to the financing. The
compensation warrants are exercisable for a period of 24 months at an exercise
price of $0.125 per share. For its services, Capital Partners Corporation, of
which Steven Small is a principal, received a fee in the amount of $21,000 and
1,472,000 compensation warrants on the same terms as the warrants issued to
    Unless permitted under applicable securities legislation, the purchasers
of the common shares, as well as Paradigm Capital Inc. and Capital Partners
Corporation, may not trade such shares before June 8, 2008.
