SAND Announces Year-End Results

    MONTREAL, March 15 /CNW/ -- SAND Technology Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:  
SNDTF), an international provider of intelligent enterprise information
management solutions, today reported a loss for the year ended July 31, 2006
of $3,926,971 ($0.31 per share), a decrease of 47% against a loss of
$7,363,054 for the same period last year ($0.57 per share). For the quarter
ended July 31, 2006, the net loss amounted to $1,201,521 ($0.09 per share)
against a loss of $2,225,178 in the fourth quarter of last year ($0.17 per
share). All figures are in Canadian dollars.
    "Although our net loss has been almost cut in half over last year," notes
Arthur Ritchie, President and Chief Executive Officer of SAND, "we have not
yet achieved the results we are expecting for our shareholders. We remain
strongly encouraged by the level of interest and pipeline for our SAND/DNA
products in general and our new SAND/DNA for SAP BI offering," added Ritchie.
