Totally Hip Completes Private Placement of $656,698 CDN.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 21, 1997-- Totally Hip Software (Alberta Stock Exchange: THW.) Totally Hip Software Inc. (ASE:THW), an innovative provider of award-winning cross-platform Web animation tools, today announced that it has filed for ASE approval, an interim private placement financing with a new investment group for total proceeds of $656,698 CDN. This completed private placement consists of 505,153 common shares priced at $1.30 and 505,153 share purchase warrants priced at $1.50. Each share purchase warrant will expire one year from the closing date of the private placement. The proceeds from this completed private placement are to be used to expand marketing and distribution of the company's popular new WebPainter animation products.

The Company's previously announced proposed financing dated November 21, 1996 was canceled as a result of the original investment group being unable to meet the terms of the agreement in the time period allowed by the Company and the ASE. This allowed the Company to proceed with a new investment group to complete an interim private placement this past week.

The Company also announced that it is continuing financing efforts with this new investment group and will be making application to the ASE to proceed with a further private placement financing. The terms of this proposed second private placement will be announced by Totally Hip Software upon conditional approval by the ASE.

"We are pleased to complete this interim private placement with this new group in such a short time period," says Randall H. McCallum, chairman and CEO, Totally Hip Software. "The recent introduction of WebPainter 1.0 for Windows, combined with the awards, outstanding press reviews, and the growing demand for our new products helped to accelerate the process. This interim financing will allow us to expand our marketing efforts for WebPainter right away, and allow us sufficient time to proceed with a further financing effort with the proceeds to be used for the introduction and marketing of a number of new products in 1997. Funding offers have already been put forward and we expect this financing to be completed in a timely manner."
