StarInvest Update on Its China Initiative

MIDLAND, TX--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - As anticipated in our previous press release dated June 25, 2007 we are now pleased to announce that StarInvest (OTCBB: STIV) has made formal application to the Shanghai Municipal Government in Shanghai, China to establish a representative office to introduce StarInvest Group to Chinese companies seeking access to the US capital and debt markets, as well as cross border M&A opportunities that could enhance their participation in domestic business cycles.

Robert H. Cole, CEO of StarInvest, Inc stated, "Chinese companies are increasingly looking toward having US domestic manufacturing and distribution in order to be closer to their US customers and shorten their supply chain cost, thereby providing additional savings to their customer base. This represents an incredible opportunity for StarInvest and we intend to take full advantage of our BDC status to facilitate this process."

StarInvest anticipates receiving the municipal government's approval by the end of fiscal 2007.
