Incentra Acquires Sales Strategies Inc.

BOULDER, Colo. -- Incentra Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB:ICNS)
, a provider of complete IT and storage management solutions to
enterprises and managed service providers in North America and Europe,
today announced that it has acquired Meutchen, NJ-based Sales
Strategies, Inc., doing business as SSI hubCity (www.ssihubcity.com),
for approximately $6 million, subject to certain post-closing working
capital adjustments. The price paid at closing included $4.75
million in
cash, 1.37 million restricted shares of Incentra common stock and the
issuance of an unsecured, three-year note for $250,000. If certain
performance thresholds are met in each of the three years following
closing, the seller is eligible to receive additional consideration
consisting of a combination of cash and restricted shares of Incentra
common stock.

Privately-held SSI is a premier provider of data lifecycle management,
information security, software infrastructure development and managed
services solutions to mid-tier enterprises and Fortune 1000 companies
in financial services, insurance, media, government and life sciences.
SSI, which had sales of approximately $40 million for the 12 months
ended June 30, 2007, will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Incentra Solutions and continue to operate from its offices in New
Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Colorado.

With the addition of SSI, Incentra is well positioned to enter 2008
with an annual revenue run rate of more than $240 million. The
acquisition will add a staff of approximately 20 professionals and
more than 250 customers to Incentra's existing operations. SSI
president Tom Kuni will continue to lead the business and report
directly to Incentra Solutions President and Chief Operating Officer
Shawn O'Grady.

Incentra Solutions Chairman and CEO Thomas P. Sweeney said that a key
element of the Company's growth strategy has always been to build a
nationwide sales and support organization with locations in key
geographic markets in the U.S. "The acquisition of SSI gives us a
strong presence on the East Coast extending our reach into the major
IT markets of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and strengthening
our operations in Colorado.

"The addition of SSI in New Jersey and our recent acquisition of
Helio Solutions in Northern California to our existing operations in
the Northwest, West and Midwest establishes Incentra as a strong
nationwide provider of complete IT solutions, which we believe will
continue to accelerate our rate of growth," Sweeney added. "And with
our ability to support customers purchasing and deployment needs in
Western Europe, we are one of only a handful of complete solutions
providers able to support customer needs on both sides of the
Atlantic. Our results over the last several quarters have proven that
acquiring systems integrators with existing direct sales
organizations serving the enterprise market drive sales of our higher
margin services offerings, and we are confident that the acquisition
of SSI will continue that trend."
