/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR THROUGH U.S. 
NEWSWIRE SERVICES/ 
TORONTO, Jan. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Angoss Software Corporation ("Angoss") (TSX-V: 
ANC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of 
intent dated January 25, 2013 (the "LOI") with Peterson Partners, Inc. 
("Peterson Partners"), an arm's length party, in connection with a proposed 
acquisition (the "Transaction") by an affiliate of Peterson Partners 
("AcquireCo") of 100% of the outstanding securities of Angoss. 
Under the terms of the LOI, the Transaction will be structured as a 
shareholder approved statutory amalgamation, plan of arrangement, or other 
such transaction as agreed upon by Angoss and Peterson Partners. Pursuant to 
the LOI, Peterson Partners has agreed: (i) to offer shareholders of Angoss 
cash in the amount of $0.525 for each outstanding common share of Angoss (a 
"Common Share"), which represents a premium of approximately 42% to the 
closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange on January 25, 
2013 of $0.37, and a premium of approximately 94% to the prior twenty day 
weighted average trading price on the TSX Venture Exchange of $0.27; (ii) that 
all outstanding warrants to acquire Common Shares may be acquired by AcquireCo 
in consideration for $0.525 per warrant less the exercise price therefor, or 
in exchange for warrants to acquire redeemable preferred shares of the 
continuing company ("NewCo") upon completion of the Transaction; (iii) that 
all outstanding stock options of Angoss will be exchanged for, or converted 
into, stock options of NewCo on substantially the same terms as the Angoss 
stock options previously held; and (iv) to redeem all outstanding Class A 
preferred shares, Series 2 ("Preferred Shares") in the capital of Angoss in 
accordance with their terms (or in a manner as otherwise may be agreed upon by 
Angoss and Peterson Partners) for a cash amount per Preferred Share equal to 
the subscription price per Preferred Share plus all cumulative unpaid 
dividends. Angoss expects to defer the dividend payable to holders of 
Preferred Shares that will be due on February 1, 2013, and for such dividend 
to be paid out upon completion of the Transaction at the increased dividend 
rate in accordance with the terms of the Preferred Shares. 
Evans & Evans, Inc. has been engaged to act as financial advisor to Angoss to 
provide a fairness opinion in respect of the Transaction, which will opine as 
to whether, subject to any assumptions and limitations contained therein, the 
consideration to be received by Angoss shareholders pursuant to the 
Transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the shareholders of 
Angoss. 
The LOI provides that in certain circumstances Angoss will pay Peterson 
Partners a break fee equal to 5% of the aggregate purchase price payable by 
Peterson Partners for all of the outstanding securities of Angoss, or a 
reimbursement of costs, should the Transaction not be completed. Completion of 
the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, without 
limitation: (i) the execution by Angoss and Peterson Partners of a definitive 
transaction agreement; (ii) the approval of the shareholders of Angoss; and 
(iii) regulatory and stock exchange approval. The Transaction is intended to 
be completed on or around April 21, 2013, and in any event no later than June 
30, 2013, unless as otherwise agreed to by Angoss and Peterson Partners. 
Additional details respecting the Transaction will be provided in future press 
releases, and in an information circular to be mailed to the shareholders of 
Angoss on or about March 15, 2013, all of which will also be available under 
Angoss' profile on www.SEDAR.com. 
The proposed $1 million non-brokered private placement that was announced 
January 8th, 2013 by Angoss will not be proceeding. 
The board of directors of Angoss has considered the Transaction and 
unanimously recommends that Angoss securityholders vote in favour of the 
Transaction at an upcoming special meeting of Angoss shareholders, which will 
be held to consider and vote on the Transaction. This recommendation remains 
subject to the receipt by the board of a fairness opinion, and to any superior 
proposals that are presented to Angoss by third parties prior completion of 
the Transaction. 
Martin Galligan, the President & Chief Executive Officer of Angoss, commented, 
"This proposal represents a significant premium to Angoss' current market 
price, and we are pleased to provide shareholders an opportunity to realize 
immediate value for their shares."
