Leisure Direct, Inc. Provides Corporate Update

Leisure Direct, Inc. Selects Numarket Solutions, Inc. for Investor and Public Relations Services

PERRYSBURG, OH--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - Leisure Direct, Inc. (OTCBB: LDTI) is pleased to provide shareholders an update on recent corporate developments. The Company expects 2008 to be a pivotal point in the implementation of its business plan as it begins its roll up of profitable Pool and Spa outlets. As such, the Company has selected Numarket Solutions, Inc. to provide investor relations strategy and corporate communication services moving forward.

In 2007 the Company set up its distribution plan, accounting procedures and hired two highly experienced individuals to the management team. The Company appointed Robert Dapper as its President. Mr. Dapper is the founder of Royal Spa Manufacturing ("Royal Spas"), which is based in Indianapolis. Mr. Dapper started Royal Spas in 1983 while he was an engineering student at Purdue University. Royal Spa has grown to be one of the most successful spa manufacturing and distribution companies in the industry. The Company also appointed David Clark as its Vice President of Business Development. Mr. Clark has more than 25 years of experience in planning, launching and growing businesses with both large public companies and entrepreneurial ventures. He has proven international expertise in strategic planning, business and product development, sales and marketing, and strategic alliances with several companies including Mellon Bank, Ernst & Young, and Hogan Systems.

To date, the Company has a prospect list of acquisitions totaling sales of over $150 million. The current focus is to concentrate our efforts on closing four of these acquisitions in the first half of 2008. The Company had expected to consummate a portion of these four acquisitions in late 2007. The financing options at that time however were not beneficial to shareholders and the Company ceased negotiations with the funding sources. The Company has recently begun negotiations with several new sources of funding and expects to make an announcement in the near future regarding this. The Company is shareholder conscious and is committed to non-toxic forms of financing.

The purchase price of all four acquisitions is anticipated to be $16.2M. The combined annual sales and EBITDA of the four acquisitions was $28M and $4.0M in 2007, respectively. Our current strategy for acquisition would bring $10.3M in debt with the remaining issued in equity. By rolling up the four target acquisitions under the Leisure Direct distribution plan, we will bring as much as a 25% price savings to consumers. The increase in savings is anticipated to attract more consumers which will increase the overall profit significantly. Currently the Company feels its share price does not reflect its current business development. With a market cap recently as low as $500K the Company trades well below the value of some dormant shell Companies.

The current issued and outstanding shares of the Corporation are 13.8M and the approximate public trading float is believed to be between 1.5M and 2M shares. The Company currently has $2.3M in liabilities of which over half are owed to John R. Ayling, Leisure Direct's Chairman and CEO. Mr. Ayling has contributed personal funds to maintain operations and limit dilution to shareholders. The Company does not have any bank debt.

Leisure Direct, Inc. will be making further announcements to the investment public in regards to its business plan and future operations as they develop. The Company is excited about its prospects moving into the New Year and looks forward to strong growth in 2008.
