VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Uniserve Communications Corporation (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: USS) wishes to announce that it has negotiated a settlement with the $3,935,000 of Preferred Shares which are currently outstanding. The proposal will see all arrears over the past two years written off through to June 30, 2013 which amount to total approximately $1,000,000 for forgiveness of debt, and the Preferred Shareholders will write off one-third of the principal amount owing resulting in a reduction of the principal obligation outstanding under the Preferred Shares to approximately $2,600,000. In consideration, the Company will cancel the Preferred Share Certificates and issue Promissory Notes reducing the interest rate from 8% to 5% payable monthly with interest commencing July 1, 2013. The Notes will have a four year term and be convertible into common shares of the Company at $0.10 per share during the term of the Note. If the Company's share price trades at $0.20 or higher for a ninety day period, the Company will have the option to force conversion of the debt into common shares. To date, over 86% of the Preferred Shareholders have consented to this new arrangement. Assuming all the Preferred Shareholders consent, the benefit to the Company will be approximately $5,000,000 in reduction of current liabilities.

The Company is also pleased to announce the appointment of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP, Chartered Accountants, as our new auditors.
