Kunekt Provides Update on U.S. Patent Application

Thursday, September 03, 2009

Carson City, NV -- Kunekt Corporation (OTCBB: KNKT) announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (U.S. Patent Office) has issued an Office Action in the continued examination of its non-provisional patent application, "METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PROCESSING FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS USING MULTIPLE FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS", filed on May 31, 2007.

In this most recent Office Action, Kunekt has prevailed in its arguments on the U.S. Patent Office Examiner's original rejections in its previous response. However, the Examiner has identified prior art which requires that Kunekt amend its claims to direct the Examiner to an embodiment that is not disclosed in the prior art. In this respect Kunekt filed an Office Action Response, on August 21, 2009, and will continue to work through the patent process.

"We have been confident in our patent claim from the onset and this latest development is a positive step towards our final goal of it being granted," said Mark Bruk, President.

About Kunekt Corporation

Kunekt plans to launch the KUNEKT Card - the only credit card in the World to combine a cardholder's entire credit on one card. Our patent-pending technology is not available with any other card, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Some of our security features are an industry first and will provide our customers safety and peace of mind.

The KUNEKT Card automatically determines which of the cardholder's connected credit cards has enough available credit to pay for their purchase, or will combine credit from multiple connected cards for a single purchase. A KUNEKT Card cardholder's purchasing power is limited by the total of all of their connected cards' limits - not by the limit on a single card. These unique features nearly eliminate the risk of a transaction being declined.
