Alto Group Holdings Announces Status on Ghana Project

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) -  Alto Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALTO) ("Alto Group" or the "Company") announces an update on the status of the Ghana project and the company's intention to remain in the region to continue its exploration efforts within West Africa.

The work program previously completely on the Ghana project generated promising results that outline the potential of a multi-million ounce resource. The excitement surrounding the potential value of this asset has triggered all interested parties involved to demand the assignment of ownership to the joint venture partner. Due to the joint venture partner's inability to timely complete the necessary assignment of the Nkwanta Concession in Ghana, management had decided to cancel any further work which had been planned previously until such time that the assignment issues are resolved and an agreement can be updated. All efforts are being taken to resolve the title issues in the hopes that the joint venture agreement dispute can be resolved quickly, and the drilling plan can resume in the near future.

Additionally, management is currently making arrangements to conclude a series of acquisitions elsewhere within the company's consolidation plan, which will forward management's goals for project diversification and added value to the overall property portfolio. We anticipate the announcement of the completion of a series of planned consolidation events shortly.

President and CEO Mark Daniel Klok has stated that the company plans to announce the election of the company's new Chief Financial Officer once the election process is completed in the coming days. This greatly anticipated addition to the company has been selected to augment the existing management team's ability to maintain the highest level of professionalism and add additional value as the company executes its plans for the future.
