H-Quotient Announces Distribution Date

VIENNA, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 27, 2006 -- H-Quotient, Inc., (OTC: HQNT) announced that its distribution payable in one share of Standard Holdings Group Ltd. (OTC: SNDH) for every two shares of H-Quotient, Inc., for stockholders of record as of December 30, 2005, will be distributed on or about February 13, 2006. Fractions will be rounded up, which means, for example, that a holder of 4,003 shares of HQNT will receive 2,002 shares of SNDH.

The SNDH shares will be restricted for two years or until a registration is filed and accepted.

The Company's advisors indicate that this is a nontaxable distribution.

Stock held by brokers for their customers is customarily held at Depository Trust Company. However, these restricted SNDH shares will not be not held at DTC. They will be distributed directly to brokers, a fact that can increase the time required to complete the distribution. All brokers holding HQNT shares as of the record date will receive the SNDH distribution, and investors who do not see this reflected in their accounts in February should contact their brokers. Investors holding certificates of HQNT will receive the SNDH shares directly.

This announcement may contain, in addition to historical information, certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Such statements reflect management's current views and are based on certain assumptions. Actual results could differ materially from the assumptions currently anticipated.
