Rutter Inc. Financial Statements - Status Update Report

    ST. JOHN'S, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - Rutter Inc. (TSX: RUT) ("Rutter") is providing
this bi-weekly update in accordance with National Policy 12-203, Cease Trade
Orders For Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP- 12-203"), and will do so
regularly until such time as the filing of its audited annual financial
statements for the year ended August 31, 2008 ("Financial Statements"), the
management's discussion and analysis related to the Financial Statements, the
Annual Information Form and the related certifications (collectively,
"Required Filings") are up to date.
    The press release issued by Rutter on December 22, 2008 confirmed that
the reason for the November 24, 2008 announcement ("Default Announcement")
regarding the delay in filing the Required Filings was due to the lack of
final agreement on a potential restructuring of the debt with Rutter's
principal lender. The Company expects to be in a position to release the
Financial Statements prior to the Annual General Meeting of the Company on
January 15, 2009.
    The Chief Executive Officer of Rutter ("CEO") and the Chief Financial
Officer of Rutter ("CFO") are currently subject to a management cease trade
order ("MCTO"). A temporary MCTO was issued by the Ontario Securities
Commission ("OSC") on December 2, 2008 after it became apparent that Rutter
would be delayed in filing the Required Filings. A permanent MCTO was issued
on December 16, 2008. The permanent MCTO provides that all trading in and all
acquisitions of the securities of Rutter, whether direct or indirect, by the
CEO and the CFO must cease until the earlier of two full business days
following receipt by the OSC of the Required Filings, or a further order of
the OSC. A copy of the permanent MCTO is available on Rutter's website at
    In accordance with NP 12-203, Rutter confirms that, except as described
herein: (i) there is no material change to the information contained in the
Default Announcement; (ii) there has been no failure by Rutter to fulfill its
stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative
information guidelines set out in NP 12-203; (iii) there is not actual or
anticipated specified default subsequent to that disclosed in the Default
Announcement; and (iv) there is no other material information concerning the
affairs of Rutter that has not been generally disclosed.
