OneMove(TM) Announces Agreement to sell its U.K.-based Subsidiary

    Company to focus resources on domestic operations

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 13 /CNW/ - OneMove Technologies Inc. ("OneMove" or the
"Company") (TSX-V: OM), a leading web-based real estate transaction platform,
today announced that it has signed a binding memorandum of understanding
("MOU") for the sale of its U.K.-based wholly owned subsidiary, OneMove
Limited, to Neil Patel, CEO, OneMove Limited. The sale is expected to close on
or before February 28, 2008.
    Under the terms of the agreement, Mr. Patel will return to treasury all
5.6 million of his currently held shares in OneMove that were issued to him as
consideration for the original purchase of OneMove Limited. OneMove Limited
will issue a debenture to OneMove for approximately (pnds stlg)1.2 million, to
be paid out over a term of 10 years. OneMove will renounce ownership of
OneMove Limited, returning all shares held, and provide (pnds stlg)175,000 in
funding, 50% of which OneMove Limited will repay by way of the debenture. In
addition, the representatives for each company will step down from the other
company's Board of Directors, and the companies will enter into a brand
sharing and a software royalty license agreement, the terms of which will be
finalized upon closing.
    "We believe these changes will strengthen our financial position over the
long-term," said Martin Johnson, President and CEO, OneMove. "We have
demonstrated continued strong growth in B.C., with transactions processed more
than doubling year-over-year. However, sales in the U.K., while growing, have
developed more slowly than expected. As a result, we believe it is prudent to
eliminate our direct investment in the U.K. real estate market at this time
and focus our financial resources on continuing to drive domestic growth. With
the sale of OneMove Limited, we will be able to better capitalize on the
opportunities in the fastest growing segment of our business and deliver on
the full potential of our B.C. operations, while still participating in the
growth of the U.K. market through the software licence agreement."
