Aladdin Appoints Another Distributor for Its High Margin Import Beers

BROOKLYN, NY--(Marketwire - February 20, 2008) - SKI Distributing in Brooklyn, NY has agreed to represent the Aladdin Beverage (PINKSHEETS: ADTJ) portfolio of brands. "We could not be happier with the SKI appointment. Having them and their 30 member sales force support our brands will give us a greater reach into the market as well as allow us to open up some secondary markets like Long Island, Westchester County and Staten Island. This is a huge step forward for us and we are excited to get our brands moving in a big way," states Ted O'Connor, President, Aladdin Beverage.

The brands in the Aladdin portfolio are very attractive for wholesalers to purchase because of the high margins these types of beers command at the wholesale and retail level. "Wholesalers understand that the types of brands Aladdin imports can command margins of over 50% at each tier. Growth for brands like the ones in Aladdin's portfolio, especially organic import brands, is upwards of 40%. This combination of growth and high margins allows everyone to make money and that is a winning combination," states Ted O'Connor.
