RNS Release

19 February 2007

                               Board appointments

Knowledge Technology Solutions PLC ('KTS' or 'the Company'), providers of
professional market information services in the finance sector, is pleased to
announce the board appointments of two directors with immediate effect. Richard
Last has joined the Company as Chairman and Non-Executive Director and Louise
Barton as a Non-Executive Director.

Richard Last, 49, has over 15 years' senior experience in information
technology, having worked at board level for a number of publicly quoted and
private companies operating in this sector. Currently, he is Chairman and Chief
Executive of Lynx plc, a privately-owned provider of technology infrastructure
and mobile data solutions. Until February 2002 Lynx plc was part of the Lynx
Group plc, a fully-listed IT services, software and financial services group.
Richard sits on a number of other boards including Patsystems plc, an AIM quoted
provider of solutions for futures trading and exchange systems and is Chairman
of Xpertise Group plc, an AIM quoted IT training company .

Louise Barton, 56, has more than 26 years' experience as an investment analyst.
Louise's background embraces a high profile City career, including having held
senior positions with fund management group Prudential Portfolio Managers and
stockbrokers CCF Laurence Prust and Investec Securities.

The Company, which recently raised £1.8 million in additional working capital,
is pursuing a new growth strategy aimed at building a broader, higher margin
revenue base through a combination of further internal product development and
selective acquisitions. The new initiatives leverage the strength and
flexibility of KTS's proven application technology to target market
opportunities within investment banks and to address the market requirements
arising from the planned introduction of the Markets in Financial Instruments
Directive, MiFID. These additional initiatives reduce the Company's dependency
on revenues derived solely from its live market data subscription services.

Dr Marc Pinter-Krainer, Chief Executive of KTS PLC, said:

'We are delighted to welcome Richard and Louise to the board of KTS.  Both
Louise and Richard are fully appraised and supportive of the Company's new
growth strategy. As seasoned operators in the IT sector and the City, I am
confident that their practical approaches will be important in helping KTS
deliver the maximum returns on our investment in our new MiFID and
MarketTerminal ON-SITE solutions.'

Louise Maxwell Barton does not have any current or former disclosable
directorships. Mrs. Louise Barton and her husband, Mr. Brian D. Newman,
currently hold in aggregate 26,820,000 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the
Company representing approximately 8.07 per cent. of ordinary issued share

former directorships are set out in appendix 1 in accordance with Paragraph G of
Schedule 2 to the AIM Rules. Save as disclosed in Appendix 1 there are no other
