    Calgary, Alberta – Real Time Measurements Inc. (“Real Time” or the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture Exchange – “RTY”). Mr. Terry Matthews, President and CEO of Real Time announces the Alberta Securities Commission issued an order varying the terms of a cease trade order originally issued against the Corporation on June 4, 2010 for failing to file annual audited financial statements, annual management’s discussion and analysis and certification of annual filings for the year ended 31 January 2010. The British Columbia Securities Commission issued a similar order. As a result, the Corporation is proceeding with a secured debenture financing for minimum proceeds of $500,000 and a maximum of $600,000 (the Offering). The proceeds of the loan are to be used to fund expenses associated with the preparation of delinquent continuous disclosure documents, to purchase raw materials in connection with a proposed transaction with a major Oil Company in the Middle East, and general working capital. As previously disclosed, the Corporation has won a bid for a contract to supply downhole electronic instrumentation estimated to be worth about US$1.9M to a major oil producer in the Middle East region. Please refer to the Corporation’s continuous disclosure filings on and its press release dated May 31, 2010 (Stockwatch) for details of the proposed Middle East transaction.

    Pursuant to the Offering, the principal and interest, being 20% per annum, are due and payable on the date of repayment of the principal. The debentures will be secured subordinated obligations of the Corporation and will be subordinate to senior secured indebtedness of the Corporation, if and when incurred. The obligation of the Corporation to pay the principal amount and interest of the debentures will be secured by a floating charge against the present and after-acquired property of the Corporation. As additional security, the Corporation shall make and assignment of a portion of the Irrevocable Letter of Credit, on a pro rata basis to each debenture holder, in an amount equal to the aggregate amount raised under the Offering.

    The Corporation is still a listed issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V), however the Corporation’s shares are currently suspended and will not be trading on the TSX-V until such time as the company has met all the requirements of the TSX-V as set out in the TSX-V Corporate Finance Manual. Management is endeavoring to meet said requirements and completion of the Offering shall assist the Corporation in satisfying the TSX-V’s continuing listing requirements. Shareholders are advised that the securities of the Corporation will remain subject to the cease trade order until fully revoked by the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission, and that there is no certainty that a full revocation order will ever be issued.
