Grifco International, Inc. Announces Special Meeting of Shareholders and Details of Merger With Public Reporting Company

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 3, 2006 -- Grifco International, Inc. ("Grifco" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: GFCI) announced today its planned merger with a fully SEC reporting company is being completed. The fully reporting merger company will be filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission a Schedule 14A Proxy Statement with the full details of the merger. This filing will be available to all of our shareholders online at www.sec.gov by accessing the Edgar database. Until that filing is made with the SEC, we cannot legally provide any further details.

Jim Dial stated, "We are addressing the three major concerns of our shareholders with the proposed merger. First, our shareholders want financial transparency provided by fully reporting companies. Second, our shareholders want to be listed on either the OTC.BB or AMEX because of naked short selling of non-reporting companies listed on the Pink Sheets. Third, our shareholders want share value since they believe in our product line and business strategy."

Mr. Dial continued, "Our Special Meeting of Shareholders will be scheduled back-to-back with a Special Meeting of Shareholders of our proposed merger public company. In this way, our shareholders will have full access to information. We will announce additional information next week, including a specific date and location for the Special Meeting."
