Amergence Group Cues Up for a Name Change to PanPacific International, Inc.

The Company Is Focusing on Several of Its New Hong Kong Ventures

PHOENIX, AZ and HONG KONG--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - The Amergence Group (PINKSHEETS: AMNG) announced today that it will be filing the paperwork soon to change its name to PanPacific International so that it can better reflect the Company's ongoing presence in both the US and Central Hong Kong. Following a review by regulating agencies, it is anticipated that the Company's symbol will change to reflect its new name. The Company has selected staff for their Hong Kong office and is beginning the work of rolling out several of its Hong Kong-area ventures for Q2/10 and Q3/10.

The Company has focused on leading-edge media opportunities in the Hong Kong area. The first business, Ante-Up Media, contracts with movie theatres for the display of commercial advertising to theatre-goers prior to the start of each movie feature. The second business unit represents www.Video1314.com -- a very popular China-based video site similar in concept to YouTube® in the US. This unit will sell various types of online advertising products for Video1314 as well as develop and originate its own infomercial-type programming targeted to the website's millions of monthly users.

The Amergence Group/PanPacific International will also use their Hong Kong facilities to offer its proprietary media-enhancement technology such as FLASHAlbum™, one of several technologies developed by the Company over the past eight years.

"For me, our company is entering one of the most exciting periods I've been a witness to since joining the Company as its president 10 years ago," says Peter Jacobs. "We've survived through some very rough years which I believe, in hindsight, has made us better able to cope with the opportunities to come."
