AGM Statement

Knowledge Technology Solutions PLC
29 December 2006

RNS release

29 December 2006

                         Annual General Meeting Update

At today's Annual General Meeting of Knowledge Technology Solutions PLC ('KTS'
or the 'Company'), the Chief Executive will outline to shareholders the main
developments over the year and discuss current prospects.

Chief Executive's AGM Report

As previously reported in our final results statement released on 4 December, we
introduced a new strategy aimed at building a broader, higher margin revenue

The new strategy maintains the focus on the strength and flexibility of our
technology, but reduces the Company's dependency on revenues derived solely from
market data subscription services.

As part of the diversification, a new area of focus has been the creation of
specific solutions that address the requirements arising from the planned
introduction of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, MiFID. As you
may be aware, MiFID is an EU directive aimed at creating transparency throughout
the European Union for market participants dealing in securities and is expected
to become law from 1 November 2007.

Complying with MiFID will require considerable investment from financial
institutions, creating for KTS many revenue earning opportunities where we can
work with partners such as major investment banks and brokers to build solutions
that not only meet MiFID's regulatory requirements, but also potentially lead to
tangible commercial benefits among our target partner base.

Importantly, through participation in MiFID implementation forums over the last
15 months, we believe we have identified separate but equally compelling
opportunities among both the investing side and the securities' sales side of
the target financial institutions, again if successful, significantly broadening
our market beyond its current revenue base.

Again, as part of KTS's strategy to increase market share, we have also
introduced MarketTerminal ON-SITE.  This is a new product that provides global
banks with customised viewing applications that are designed to improve the
interface between a bank's internally originated and derived information and the
external data and prices sourced from a plethora of third party suppliers.

MarketTerminal ON-SITE uses the same proprietary technology platform as
MarketTerminal and integrates seamlessly with the bank's existing
infrastructure. It is being sold on a licence model and aimed at a new market
for KTS - mid-tier users within major international investment banks operating
in the City of London.

We are delighted that the response to MarketTerminal ON-SITE has been very
encouraging because clients have recognised it brings vital new competition to a
market traditionally dominated by just a few large data vendors. Increased
flexibility, seamless integration with existing infrastructures and immediate
cost savings make MarketTerminal ON-SITE a highly attractive proposition for
major investment banks.

A 'proof of concept' phase with one global investment bank has been successfully
completed and we are looking forward to reporting to shareholders key
developments on this and our MiFID solutions.

Looking ahead, we are pleased that our recent financing rounds have been well
supported by new and existing shareholders. We are delighted that they share our
excitement and belief in our new products and strategy, and the strength and
track record of KTS's proprietary technology.  With over £1.8 million in new
funds now secured, we believe we have the financing in place that will enable us
to make 2007 a year which KTS strengthens considerably its position in the live
financial data services market.
