Javelin Advisory Group Releases 1st Quarter 2008 Edition of "The Javelin Index" Reviewing Status of Client Companies

Management Blog Launched With First Three Posts

MURRIETA, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - Javelin Advisory Group, a consulting firm that assists public companies in a variety of areas, including compliance, SEC reporting, corporate restructuring and mergers and acquisitions, today announced the release of the January 2008 edition of "The Javelin Index," a newsletter which reviews the status of Javelin's client companies over the last quarter and updates the transactions in which they are involved.

A PDF version of "The Javelin Index" can be viewed on the company's corporate website at

In addition to the release of the newsletter, Javelin Managing Director Steven R. Peacock has posted the first three entries on his blog, which can be found on the Javelin website at

The newsletter reports on Javelin client Franchise Capital Corporation, stock symbol FCCN, and its recently completed acquisition of Aero Exhaust, a world leader in performance exhaust airflow technology and NASCAR Performance Partner. The acquisition transaction closed in the 4th calendar quarter of 2007, and Franchise Capital shareholders retained 35% of the issued and outstanding capital of the company, a percentage considerably higher than originally expected.

Since the acquisition, Franchise Capital has announced shareholder approval of a name change to Aero Performance Exhaust, Inc., which will also result in a change of the company's trading symbol. The changes are scheduled to take effect on January 21, 2008.

Another Javelin client, GTREX Capital, Inc. (OTCBB: GRXI), has entered into an initial agreement to acquire 80% of the issued and outstanding shares of a company that is focused on the development of an internationally recognized green brand for sustainable tourism and additional environmentally conscious businesses. The initial agreement, in the form of a memorandum of understanding, outlines the strategy for acquiring the targeted company, which has an existing subsidiary business with operations, existing clients and revenues. The planned structure of the post-merger entity is that the public company will house a high profile international green brand, which is expected to become synonymous with green sustainable tourism.

Mr. Peacock was appointed to the position of CEO of GTREX Capital by the company's Board of Directors to shepherd the proposed merger transaction to its successful conclusion.

Another company for which Mr. Peacock has accepted a senior management position in order to execute a merger/acquisition strategy is ActionView International, which is publicly traded under the symbol AVWI. ActionView is continuing the cleanup process to prepare the company for a future reverse merger transaction. The recent close of the acquisition of Dalian Chuming by Energroup Holdings Corporation, a U.S. public company, is expected to result in the repayment of a financing component that ActionView provided to Redwood Capital, which acted as an advisor to Dalian Chuming. ActionView will receive repayment of the full amount of the financing with 20% interest per annum. In addition to repayment of the financing amount, ActionView is also entitled to receive an equity bonus equaling two times the value of the amount of the funding it provided in the form of common stock in the post-acquisition public company.

"We are pleased to have this opportunity to update the progress of Javelin's clients over the past quarter," stated Mr. Peacock. "There has been significant progress for several of these companies, particularly with the close of Franchise Capital's acquisition of Aero Exhaust and GTREX Capital being positioned for its acquisition of a high profile international green brand. We anticipate the first quarter of 2008 to be equally busy, with much more information becoming available on GTREX Capital's acquisition target and a new merger candidate expected for ActionView International.

"As we work with these companies, I look forward to utilizing the recently launched blog on the Javelin website to communicate with those interested in following our progress. We continue to encourage anyone who would like to be notified whenever Javelin issues updates on our client companies or when new blog are entries are posted, to sign up for the Javelin mailing list on our website," Mr. Peacock added.
