The additional financing will be available for, and will mature in, ninety days, bears interest at the rate of 20% per annum, and interest only is payable on a monthly basis.

In addition, AirIQ also announced that it has entered into amending agreements in respect of its loan agreements originally entered into on June 20, 2006 with its unrelated senior lender. Pursuant to the amendments, the total usable cash available to the Company has increased by $250,000, while the maximum principal amount of the revolving operating loan was reduced from $5,000,000 to $3,500,000. The excess capacity has not been useable in recent months as it has not been marginable under the loan’s consolidated accounts receivable margin test.

AirIQ will use the additional financing available through these loan amendments for working capital purposes.
