ActionView International, Inc. Announces Sale of Saudi Arabia Franchise and First Order for Signs

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - ActionView International, Inc. (OTCBB: AVWI), which custom-designs, markets and manufactures illuminated programmable motion billboards, today announced the sale of an ActionView franchise in Saudi Arabia. The 5-year franchise sale was made to a Saudi Arabian company that owns an advertising firm and several malls in the country.

The franchise agreement calls for a minimum order of 100 signs within one year of commencement of the installation of the first sign. In addition to receiving a franchise fee for Saudi Arabia, ActionView has received its first order for ten 4- foot by 6-foot ActionView signs.

ActionView's franchising model includes revenue generation from franchise start-up fees, ongoing royalty fees on advertising revenues generated on the signs sold to the franchisees, and fees on signs when sold by the franchisees to 3rd parties.

ActionView's franchise in the United Arab Emirates played an integral role in the completion of the franchise agreement for Saudi Arabia, since the staff at ActionView Emirates lives in Dubai, and they speak the language and understand the culture of Saudi Arabia.

"We are pleased to have received the first order of signs from the new Saudi Arabia ActionView franchise," stated Rick Mari, director and chief executive officer of ActionView International. "Even as we move forward with our plans for ActionView International to become the public vehicle for Dalian Chuming Group to enter the U.S. public markets through a reverse merger transaction, we will continue to explore opportunities for the subsidiary operations still inside of ActionView to deliver additional value for shareholders."

ActionView International has executed a binding agreement with S3 Investment Company and its wholly owned Redwood Capital Inc. subsidiary, under which ActionView would be acquired to function as the public vehicle for the entrance of Dalian Chuming Group Co., LTD into the U.S. public markets.

Dalian Chuming Group Co., LTD (www.chuminggroup.com) is a major producer and exporter of fresh and frozen pork and other cooked meat products. The Chuming Group is among a select group of industrialized farming corporations in northeastern China and is known for its international quality management standards and international safety certifications. In late 2006, the company officially opened a $2.9 million feedmill with a capacity of 200,000 tons per year that will support its expansion of pork production. The pursuit of a U.S. public listing is expected to allow the Chuming Group to expand into additional worldwide markets.
