Unico, Inc. Announces New Date for Special Meeting of Shareholders

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2008) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that a new date of January 28, 2008 has been established for the company's special meeting of shareholders.

As explained in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Unico on December 21, 2007, the company had previously scheduled a special meeting of its shareholders on December 21, 2007. On December 17, 2007, plaintiff Legacy Trading Group, a California limited liability company, filed an action against Unico contending that notice of the special meeting of Unico's shareholders and/or the related proxy statement was not provided to all shareholders. Legacy filed an ex parte application for a temporary restraining order, and at a hearing held on December 18, 2007 in the United States District Court, Southern Division of California, the Court granted the application for a temporary restraining order and enjoined and restrained Unico from holding the special meeting of the shareholders on December 21, 2007 or at any other time until the preliminary injunction hearing in this matter was heard.

The preliminary injunction hearing was held on January 8, 2008. The plaintiff's application for a preliminary injunction was denied at the January 8, 2008 hearing on the grounds of being moot. The case was subsequently dismissed by the court on January 14, 2008 in an Order Granting Plaintiff's Motion to Dismiss Without Prejudice.

The special meeting of the company's shareholders has been rescheduled for January 28, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at the Hilton San Diego Mission Valley, 901 Camino Del Rio South, San Diego, California 92108.

Additional details are included in the Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 17, 2007. A link to Unico's SEC filings can be found on the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./IR/investorrelations.php.
