Stockgroup.com Completes Private Placement of 200,000
Shares Worth USD$1.2 Million With Southam Inc.; Leading

Stockgroup.com

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--Stockgroup.com Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: SWEB - news), an award winning
Internet supplier of news and information on the small- and micro-cap markets and one of the most popular destination
communities on the Internet, announced today that it has completed a private placement of 200,000 shares at $6.00 per share,
or USD$1.2 million in aggregate with Southam Inc., a subsidiary of Hollinger International (NYSE: HLR - news), one of the
world's leading newspaper publishing companies. This private placement by Southam Inc. represents an interest of 2.5
percent in Stockgroup.com. These shares are deemed ``restricted shares' as that term is defined under U.S. securities law.

Marcus New, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stockgroup.com said, ``Southam's strategic investment in
Stockgroup.com represents a significant vote of confidence in our growth strategy and business plan. The investment also
marks the first step in a longer-term relationship that offers us an enormous opportunity to further build brand-name
recognition for our Next Generation site. The entire team at Stockgroup.com is enthusiastically gearing up for the launch of
the Next Generation site scheduled for October 5th.'

Stockgroup.com has committed the proceeds of the private placement to advertise the upcoming launch of the Next Generation
website. In addition to the private placement completed with Southam Inc., Stockgroup.com also completed two private
placements earlier this year totaling USD$5.4 million.

Mr. J. David Dodd, Vice President Finance and Chief Financial Officer of Southam, Inc., said, ``We're excited about backing
an industry leader like Stockgroup.com. and look forward to establishing a longer term relationship with the Company as they
continue to expand their product and service offerings.'
