(Pink Sheets: COSN), today announced net loss of $597,000 or $(0.06) loss per share for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to net loss of $15,000 or $(0.00) per share for the year ended December 31, 2008.

CoSine also announced the expansion of its strategic plan to include investing its resources with the potential for capital gains.  CoSine's expanded strategic plan is to redeploy its existing resources to identify and acquire, or invest in, one or more operating businesses with the potential for generating taxable income and/or capital gains.

About Cosine Communications

CoSine Communications was founded in 1998 as a global telecommunications equipment supplier.  As of December 31, 2006, CoSine had ceased all its product and customer service related operations. CoSine's strategic plan is to redeploy its existing resources to identify and acquire, or invest in, one or more operating businesses with the potential for generating taxable income and/or capital gains. This strategy may allow CoSine to realize future cash flow benefits from its net operating loss carry-forwards ("NOLs").  As of this date, no candidates have been identified, and no assurance can be given that CoSine will find suitable candidates, and if it does, that it will be able to utilize its existing NOLs.
