Smart Kids Group Secures $10 Million Equity Line of Credit From Auctus Private Equity Fund, LLC

SANTA FE, NM--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Catch the Buzz! Smart Kids Group Inc. (OTCBB: SKGP), a global provider of children's digital education and entertainment, has entered into a Drawdown Equity Finance Agreement with Auctus Private Equity Fund, LLC of Boston.

"We are aware that a $10 million equity line of credit, managed ineffectively, could potentially be very dilutive for our shareholders. However, we also need to protect and ensure the future development of our TV productions and services to our market and Auctus is an excellent financing partner.  Smart Kids Group Inc. is actively pursuing financing options in order to launch TV production and acquire existing opportunities.  Smart Kids will only use the equity line of credit judiciously, in conjunction with other sources of financing, as and when necessary; keeping in mind at all times the value of our shares to our strategic investors. In these challenging financial times, it is prudent for Smart Kids Group to partner with Auctus at this time and plan for strategic success as well as sustained growth of the company," said Andy Ruppanner, President and CEO of Smart Kids Group. He added, "The Company has submitted a Form S-1 which is used by public companies to register securities with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It is estimated that SEC approval of the S-1 may take 90 days. In the event that we can secure more traditional financing, the Company will not use this equity line of credit."
