ActionView International, Inc. Files Form 8-K Reporting Changes to Prepare for Acquisition Transaction With Jim Palmer Trucking, Inc.

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - ActionView International, Inc. (OTCBB: AVWI) CEO has filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission which includes a number of actions that are intended to prepare the company for its anticipated acquisition transaction with Jim Palmer Trucking, Inc., a leading transportation company headquartered in Missoula, Montana. ActionView International announced a letter of intent with Jim Palmer Trucking in May 2008.

Included in the 8-K filing was the resignation of Christopher Stringer as the company's Chairman of the Board of Directors effective the close of business on June 12, 2008.

In his letter of resignation, which was included in the 8-K filing, Mr. Stringer wrote that his resignation reflected "the natural course of events necessary to consummate the share exchange agreement with Jim Palmer Trucking, Inc. in the coming weeks." He also expressed his opinion that, "the future prospects for the company in its new direction will be beneficial to the company's existing shareholders," and offered his assistance, "in any way to ensure a smooth transition for new management and a successful merger with Jim Palmer Trucking."

At this time, no one has been chosen to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Mr. Stringer as the Chairman of the Board of Directors, and as a result of Mr. Stringer's resignation, Steven R. Peacock, who also serves as Chief Executive Officer, President and Secretary, is the sole Director of ActionView International.

The 8-K filing also reported several changes to the company's articles of incorporation, all of which are intended to further prepare the company for its anticipated acquisition of Jim Palmer Trucking. On June 6, 2008, the Board of Directors and a majority of ActionView's stockholders approved a proposal to a change in the name of the company during the nine month period following the date of approval of the majority stockholders and the board of directors, the re-authorization of one billion shares of common stock, the authorization of fifty million shares of "blank check" preferred stock and approval for the Board of Directors to affect a reverse stock split of the company's outstanding common stock in a ratio of up to one-for-two thousand during the nine month period following the date of approval of the proposal, to amend the articles to broaden the nature of authorized business in which the company may engage, to correct an inadvertent reference to the State of Utah in the company's articles, and to amend the company's bylaws to change the definition of a "quorum" of shareholders for purposes of shareholder meetings.

On June 10, 2008, the company filed an amendment to the articles of incorporation with the state of Nevada to amend the articles to broaden the nature of authorized business in which the company may engage and to correct inadvertent references in the articles. On the same date, the company also amended the bylaws to change the definition of a "quorum" of shareholders for purposes of all shareholder meetings.

"We are pleased to report all of these changes, which further prepare ActionView International for its intended acquisition transaction with Jim Palmer Trucking," stated Mr. Peacock. "We do not believe that there is a better transaction possible to deliver value for existing ActionView shareholders, and the actions reported in this 8-K filing pave the way for the transaction to move forward.

"I would like to thank Christopher Stringer for his service to the company and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. We will certainly take him up on his offer to assist with the process of closing our anticipated acquisition, if the need arises," added Mr. Peacock.

The details of the proposed share exchange will be included in an anticipated future definitive agreement.

The letter of intent outlines additional due diligence, audit work and other terms that must be fulfilled to proceed to definitive agreement and to subsequently effect a close of the transaction.
