Netspace International Holdings, Inc. Makes Key Acquisition

AVENTURA, FL--(Marketwire - November 7, 2007) - Netspace International, Inc. (Netspace) (PINKSHEETS: NSIH) is pleased to announce its acquisition of Birch Capital Group. Birch Capital Group, the consulting group that acquired the Assets for the Netspace acquisition, was founded to find attractive assets and build companies around those assets.

In 2006, Birch identified a unique opportunity to acquire Netvertise Inc. D/B/A Netspace, an operationally distressed company with strong brand recognition and franchise operations in a rapidly growing business sector, Internet Marketing. With the support of trusted relationships in franchise development, as well as key members with expertise in advanced technology, marketing and finance Birch moved to and acquired the distressed company under more than favorable terms in June 2006 to form Netspace International, Inc.

At completion of the acquisition, Birch recruited a highly skilled team of technology professionals with extensive experience in Internet Marketing, Web Development, Network Infrastructure, Sales Management and Project Management to develop and implement extensive technology, marketing and franchise initiatives.

In conjunction with Netspace International, Inc. implementing an extensive upgrade plan, Birch continued to provide critical merchant banking support. With strong brand recognition in a rapidly growing business sector, Netspace was recognized from the start as having public appeal and access to the public markets. This unique combination provided an opportunity for Netspace International, Inc. to maximize shareholder wealth and sufficiently capitalize the company for global franchising and joint venture opportunities.

With the support of Birch, Netspace International, Inc. successfully executed a major milestone by obtaining controlling ownership of publicly traded Targit Interactive (TGIT) through an optimally structured reverse merger to form Netspace International Holdings (NSIH) and position the company to maximum shareholder wealth and fund raising capacity in July 2007.

Additionally, In August of 2007 Netspace International Holdings achieved its second major milestone by completing all operational and support objections including: the implementation of an enterprise wide communication system with partner Waterstreet Technologies, an International Franchise Association (IFA) recognized member, the upgrade of all Franchise materials, service pricing and positioning with support of strategic partner and leading Franchise Development firm iFranchise, upgrade of the companies Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC) and Franchise Agreement by the Company's attorney, nationally recognize franchise attorney Harold Kestenbaum and implementation of a project management office (PMO) in accordance with Project Management Institute standards.

With the support of Birch, Netspace strategically created two wholly subsidiary divisions; Netspace Franchise International, responsible for all franchise operations and Netspace Ventures, providing services to select, qualified companies in exchange for equity. The additional entities provide flexibility to the company and allow the team to leverage their merchant banking expertise and relationships for future expansion opportunities.

Going forward, Neil Swartz will lead Netspace/Birch as CEO. Netspace/Birch will focus on finding other assets it can acquire to create shareholder value, while positioning Netspace Franchising and Joint Venture Company's for significant growth with a focused and experienced management team.

"When we took Netspace public our goal was to utilize the strengths of Birch to find other assets that will be advantageous for the Company and its shareholders. Now that Birch is a part of Netspace, we feel strongly that our future acquisitions will increase both Netspace's Franchise and Ventures endeavors," says Chris Arthmann.
