MONTREAL, June 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Adaltis Inc. (TSX: ADS - News), an international in vitro diagnostic (IVD) company, wishes to provide an update further to its last news release issued June 22, 2009.

As previously disclosed on June 22, 2009, Adaltis has been in discussions with certain parties to provide additional financing in order to ensure continuing operations beyond June 2009. As of date, no agreements with potential investors have been reached nor is the Corporation confident any additional financing will be available and the Corporation is presently running out of monies to fund its operations. As a result, the Corporation is presently assessing various alternatives, including a potential assignment in bankruptcy.

There can be no assurance that any new financing will be provided to Adaltis and it is unlikely that Adaltis will be able to continue as a going concern without successfully raising additional financing through borrowings, share issuances, sale of assets or otherwise. The outcome of these matters is in large part beyond the Corporation's control and will likely be subject to a number of conditions, some of which may not be favourable to the Corporation.
