LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Marshall Holdings International, Inc. (OTCBB: MHLI)

MHLI announces its intentions to acquire Vitality Beverage, the parent company of the "SOCKO" energy drink. Marshall currently distributes SOCKO in Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, California, and Mexico. Elwood Sprenger continues to open new channels of distribution for Socko.

Vitality Beverage controls and distributes Socko Energy Beverage, one of the fastest growing new Energy drinks in the Industry. It has national and international distribution. SOCKO is involved with co-branding in Wal-Mart, Circle K stores, GNC, and various convenience stores. New distribution locations will be announced as they open.

Elwood Sprenger; Chairman Marshall Holdings International, said, "This is a perfect fit for our already core business. The Energy drink market since 2001 has grown 50% year over year and currently is a 5.4 billion dollar market in 2007. Goldman Sachs and Mintel predict that it will hit $10 billion by 2010. Diet energy products are growing at twice the rate within this category and Socko has the best diet energy drink product I have ever tasted. Our focus will be to increase our involvement of Vitality Beverage and charge ahead to significantly expand its market presence."
