Pulse Data Inc. responds to Quantum Yield Inc. offer

    TSX : PSD

    CALGARY, June 20 /CNW/ - Pulse Data Inc. ("Pulse" or the "Company")
announces that it has received from Quantum Yield Inc. ("Quantum") an
unsolicited offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Pulse for
$3.05 (Cdn) principal amount of a debenture of Quantum in exchange for each
Pulse share.
    Pulse had no prior discussions with Quantum and no prior indication that
the offer was being made. Pulse, its directors and its advisers are reviewing
the offer. In terms of initial reaction, the consideration offered by Quantum
appears to be highly unusual and speculative. Upon completion of the proposed
offer, Quantum would have a capital structure consisting of 100% debt and no
equity. In addition, the description of the terms of the Debentures offered by
Quantum is extremely vague and imprecise and have no current liquidity.
Shareholders and investors should carefully consider what value the Quantum
offer represents.
    Pulse recommends that its shareholders defer making any decision and not
tender any shares to the offer until the Board of Directors has had an
opportunity to review the offer and make a recommendation as to the merits.
Shareholders will be notified promptly of any recommendations by the Board in
accordance with applicable securities laws.
