ANTs Software Provides Shareholder Update

Timing of Filing Form 10-Q; Progress on Strategic Alternatives

ANTs software inc. (OTCBB: ANTS), a leader in database consolidation solutions, announced today that it intends to file its financial report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2011 within the next several weeks.

The quarterly report was due on August 16, 2011, but the Company has been delayed due to the consolidation of its closed office in New Jersey with its headquarters in Atlanta. In addition, despite its best efforts, the resignation and replacement of the Company’s accounting personnel also complicated the Company’s efforts to complete necessary accounting work before the deadline.

The Company has recently retained a nationally-recognized accounting firm to complete its second quarter accounting efforts and its financial report on Form 10-Q. The Company and its newly-retained accounting firm intend to work diligently to complete the Form 10-Q filing.

Strategic Alternatives

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has decided to explore strategic alternatives, including discussions with several large software vendors regarding potential strategic transactions.
