Triant Receives Order for New Raw Wafer Production Application of ModelWare

    VANCOUVER, June 20 /CNW/ - Triant Holdings Inc. (TSX: TNT) reports that
it has received an order from a new customer in Southeast Asia for the
implementation of its ModelWare FDC (Fault Detection & Classification)
software to a raw wafer production application. This will be Triant's first
application of ModelWare to the raw wafer production sector.
    A key element of Triant's strategy is to seek new applications for
ModelWare outside the fabrication of integrated circuits as a basis for future
growth and diversification. The Company has previously installed successful
new applications of ModelWare in flat panel display manufacturing and
photomask sectors. This new order is a further step towards a more diversified
installed base from the Company's continuing primary focus on the
semiconductor industry.
    Robert Heath, President & CEO of Triant commented, "Although this is not
a large order, we are encouraged to see tangible results from another of the
new applications for ModelWare that we have been developing in recent years.
It demonstrates further opportunity to broaden our customer base and develop
additional sources of future revenue."

manufacturers to commit to major capital projects in light of the current
uncertain macroeconomic environment and the semiconductor industry slowdown in
particular, the ability of Triant to sustain operations and to continue as a
going concern, the ability of Triant to obtain additional working capital
financing in the near term, and the ability of Triant to raise additional
capital, which may be problematic given the current state of capital markets.
