PURCHASE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY


17 May 2010

                           TECHNIS INTERNATIONAL PLC                           

                         ("Technis" or the "Company")                          

                       PURCHASE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY                       

The Directors of the Company (the "Directors") announce that the Company
purchased intellectual property for the creation of applications for the iPhone
and iPad from Mobil Soft SRL on 14 May 2010.

The intellectual property that has been purchased is called "iMkr". iMkr is a
proprietary software platform that enables web users to construct custom made
iPhone and iPad applications via a "drag and drop" interface. iMkr's unique
feature is that no programming knowledge is required to produce an application.
Users are guided through a graphically rich online wizard, where the user
simply adds functionality as required. This may include email forms,
connections to a Facebook or Twitter account, the ability to integrate YouTube
videos and much more. Construction of the application is achieved through drag
and drop techniques where the user simply chooses an appropriate template and
is then forwarded to subsequent stages of the wizard, which allows them to
customise their application to their requirements. Once the user has completed
their application it is built and published on their behalf.

iMkr is a new product, and as such, no turnover and profits are currently
attributable to it.

The consideration for the purchase is £275,000, which was satisfied through the
issue of 8,461,539 new ordinary shares of 1p each in the capital of Technis
(the "Consideration Shares") to Mobil Soft SRL on 14 May 2010, at an issue
price of 3.25p per share.

Additionally, the Directors further announce that the Company issued 1,500,000
new ordinary shares (the "Introducer and Marketing Shares") on 14 May 2010, at
an issue price of 3.25p to various parties, as payment of introductory
commissions relating to the intellectual property purchase and as payment for
initial marketing support for the product.

The following table sets out details of changes in the percentage of voting
rights held by a Director and Substantial Shareholders, subsequent to the issue
of the Consideration Shares and the Introducer and Marketing Shares (henceforth
collectively defined as the "Issues of Equity"), which are disclosable under
the Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules and the
PLUS Rules.

The above interests relate to legal and beneficial holdings.

All new ordinary shares rank pari passu in all respects with the existing fully
paid ordinary shares. The new ordinary shares and the existing ordinary shares
each have one right to vote per share. Following the Issues of Equity, the
total issued share capital of the Company has increased to 78,252,287 ordinary
shares.

The above figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the
calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their
interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company, under the Disclosure
and Transparency Rules.

Following the Issues of Equity the Company's total issued share capital is 
£782,522.87
