Halifax, Nova Scotia -- Core Networks, a global leader in Cable OSS solutions, today announced that it
has closed on additional funding, bringing the total it has raised in this institutional
round to $5.7M (USD). Participating in the round are current investors ACF Equity,
RBC Capital and Skypoint Capital, as well as a new investor, MM Venture Partners.
Core Networks will utilize the proceeds from this current round of funding
to accelerate development of its next generation OSS platform as well as further
the market penetration of its recently announced network assurance solution:
"We are pleased to welcome further investment from MM Venture Partners
and our existing investors," said Craig Soderquist, CEO of Core Networks.
I view the investment as a strong vote of confidence by a world-class group
of investors in Core's product strategy and a validation of our leading position
in Cable OSS solutions. Receiving additional financing in the current economic
climate is testament to the validity of Core Networks business and product strategy
as well as the success of our worldwide deployment of broadband OSS solutions."
As evidenced by recent National Cable Television Cooperative and Casema (Tier
1 MSO in Europe) success, Core Networks is experiencing strong demand.

the momentum to continue and strengthen in the months ahead" said Amit
De, General Partner, MM Venture Partners. "We are impressed by Craig and
