Global Technologies Increases Income and Asset Valuation Projections: DOE Chief Cites Gulf Spill for Wind Power Urgency

LONDON--(Marketwire - June 18, 2010) - Global Technologies, Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: GTLL) announced today that it has increased its income and asset valuation projections based on Energy Secretary Steven Chu's statement this week that the Gulf oil spill emphasized the importance of developing clean energy sources in the U.S. like wind power.

Chu described the Gulf Spill as "a tragedy" which spoke to the importance of incorporating wind power into the national energy strategy. "It's another reminder to step back and say, 'We do need a comprehensive energy strategy in the United States for the coming decades,'" Chu said.

Chu, who has never been shy about touting the importance wind power has for the national energy program, visited the University of Maine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center where they are working on new designs for floating deep-water wind turbine platforms.

The Department of Energy has invested more than $25 million in The University of Maine's wind power research while Maine voters approved a bond that will see an addition $11 million assist a university-backed group develop a wind power test site.

The Company recently announced the launch of the first five (5) Development Projects based on the Wind Turbine assets recently acquired and it intends to expedite the advancement of these projects and bring additional ones on line shortly.

The Company recently announced it had commenced patent protection on its first 9 Wind Turbine technologies recently acquired from Creative Laboratories Enterprises (CLE) and expects additional Patent applications and further development projects to emerge from its core technologies acquired as part of the $9,000,000 Agreement with Creative Laboratories Enterprises (CLE) as the analysis and prioritization process continues.

The Company believes Small Wind-Power Generation, for residential and commercial use, is a high growth sector that promises to become a significant and vital energy option primed for strong sales growth of the company's holdings and technologies. According to a recent report from Pike Research, the global small wind market is poised for strong growth in the next few years, with revenues forecast to expand from $203 million in 2009 to $412 million in 2013.

GTL invites professional third party collaboration with public, private and institutional partners across all phases of the development cycle. The Company accepts submissions from both inventors and joint venture development partners; and will be actively seeking collaboration from all sectors in advancing its Wind Turbine Blade Designs. The details of the specific projects will be posted and regularly updated on Projects (PRj) portal @ www.GlobalTechnologiesLtd.com

The Company anticipates further announcements regarding the acquisition and development of additional technologies, as it completes the prioritization and acquisition strategy of the CLE IP portfolio based on current stage and future marketability.
