Alpine TLI Group, Inc. Announces Upgraded Trading Status and Plans to Capture Market Share in $10 Billion Tax Lien Market

PLEASANT GROVE, UT--(Marketwire - December 20, 2007) - Alpine TLI Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: APGR), a full service tax lien and tax deed purchase, research, and property management company, announced today that it has achieved upgraded trading status through the approval of Form 15c211 Information and Disclosure Statement by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). Improved access to the public markets with increased transparency and tradability by our shareholders allows the Company to accelerate its approach to capturing market share in the growing tax lien sales market.

There will be over 2,000 tax lien sales during 2008, with an ever-increasing opportunity to participate in online sales. It is estimated that over $10 Billion in tax lien certificates are offered for sale annually. It is also estimated that due to the inherent leverage of a tax lien, this could represent over $1 Trillion in property value for the purchasers of these tax lien certificates. Alpine's business model is structured to research, identify and capture a significant portion of the $10 Billion in tax liens offered each year.

M. Taylor Abegg, II, Chief Executive Officer of Alpine TLI Group, Inc., stated, "The tax sales industry is a proven market and has been around for more than 100 years. The bottom line is county governments need money to operate and provide many important and useful services for their citizens. Their primary funding source for these services is property taxes. If these taxes are not paid, the government has the authority to lien the property for the unpaid taxes. The counties are then authorized to sell these liens to investors, like Alpine, allowing the county to receive funds to operate with the investor receiving a high rate of return. Exceptional returns are obtainable if taxes are not paid during a specified period of time, allowing the tax lien owner to obtain the property, free and clear of all encumbrances. As a result, for those who understand the industry, such as Alpine, the profit potential can be enormous."


ALPINE TLI GROUP, Inc. is a full service tax lien and tax deed purchase, research, and property management company. Alpine specializes in identifying and researching properties that have the propensity of creating highly leveraged investment opportunities through the purchase of real estate tax lien certificates and tax deeds.

Tax lien certificates are typically acquired by Alpine for 1% to 20% of the property value. If the lien is redeemed by the property owner, a return of 4% to 25% APR is realized by Alpine. If the lien is not redeemed, the deed to the property is granted to Alpine, free and clear of all encumbrances. Tax deeds are typically acquired by Alpine for 20% to 60% of the property value. Alpine is then in a position to improve, develop or liquidate the property at a profit. More information on Alpine TLI Group is available online at
