Vecima Networks Announces a Restatement of Future Tax Assets for Year Ended June 30, 2007

    - Change limited to extraordinary earnings; no impact on operating income
    or cash flow -

    VICTORIA, BC, Sept. 23 /CNW/ - Vecima Networks Inc. ("Vecima") (TSX:VCM),
the Last Mile Solution(R) for broadband wired and wireless networks, today
announced that it has identified an error in valuation of the future tax asset
recorded for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007. Investment tax credits
(ITCs) acquired in the purchase of Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. (SSP),
should have been recorded net of the future tax liability associated with the
ITCs and therefore the future tax asset was overstated by $4.4 million. There
is no impact on operating income, net income before extraordinary income or
cash flow.

    In summary, the restatement has the following effects:
