VENTURE:ODS) is pleased to announce that it has completed today a private
placement of $1,450,000 by the issuance of a convertible debenture of $500,000
to FIER Cap Diamant, Limited Partnership ("FIER Cap Diamant") and by the
issuance of a convertible debenture of $250,000 and of 1,750,000 units at a
price of $0.40 per unit for a total consideration of $700,000 to SIPAR Inc.
("SIPAR"). Each unit is composed of one common share and one-fifth of a common
share purchase warrant, each common share purchase warrant entitles SIPAR to

convertible and unsecured (the "Debentures"). The principal amount of the

date and the principal amount will be convertible, at the election of the
holders, into units of ODESIA, each unit being comprised of one common share
of ODESIA and one-half common share purchase warrant. The conversion price of
the Debentures into units will be calculated using a conversion price equal to
the average trading price of the common shares of ODESIA on the TSX Venture
Exchange Inc. for the 30 days preceding the date of reception of a conversion
notice, less the maximum discount authorized by the TSX Venture Exchange Inc.,
being 25% if the share trading price is less than $0.50, 20% if share the
trading price is from $0.51 to $2.00 and 15% if the share trading price is
more than $2.00; which price shall not be lower than the trading price at the
date of issuance of the Debentures. Interest on the principal amount of the
Debentures will be payable by way of semi-annual instalments in July and in
January of each year and the principal amount will be payable 60 months after
the date of issuance of the Debentures.
