ADVANTEX ANNOUNCES TSX REVIEW
Toronto, January 15, 2009 - Advantex Marketing International Inc. (“Advantex” or the “Company”) (TSX: ADX), a leading specialist in merchant funding and loyalty marketing programs, announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) is reviewing the eligibility of the Company’s common shares (the “Common Shares”) for continued listing on the TSX. In particular, the TSX has indicated that it appears that: (i) the public distribution, price or trading activity of the Common Shares has been so reduced as to not warrant continued listing; and (ii) the market value of the Common Shares has been less than $3.0 million for a period of 30 consecutive trading days. The Company has been granted 210 days to comply with all requirements for continued listing on the TSX. The Company and its representatives are currently in discussion with the TSX regarding this matter. Should the TSX decide to delist the Common Shares, the Common Shares may qualify for listing on the TSX Venture Exchange or NEX.
