Plasticon Announces That Its FY 2005 First, Second and Third Quarter Financial Statements Have Been Filed With the SEC; Plasticon's Auditing Firm States FY 2005 Audited Financials to Be Completed

and Filed in August

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 3, 2006 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) announced today that the Company's auditing firm has completed the reviews for the first, second and third quarters for FY 2005, and that the audited financial statements for the first three quarters of 2005 have now been filed with the SEC.

According to Jim Turek, President and CEO of Plasticon International, Inc., "Jim Berger, principal of Mendoza & Berger, Plasticon's auditor of record, has written a letter informing the Company that all three quarters for 2005 have been reviewed and filed with the SEC. Additionally, Mr. Berger stated in his letter that the 2005 audit will be completed shortly. (For reference, please see a copy of the letter from Mendoza and Berger enclosed with this release). While the completion of this work does not allow the Company to achieve a timely filing of its periodic reports as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company is working to implement practices that will allow it to become timely in meeting its filing obligations in the future."

Mr. Turek also stated that, "We are pleased to be turning the corner and closing this chapter in the company's history so that we can look forward to focusing on growing the business. The completion of the 2005 audit opens many doors for the Company and will finally allow Plasticon to address the issue of reducing the share structure of the corporation through its anticipated buyback program."
