Alto Group Holdings Announces Intent to Apply for Reverse Stock Split

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Alto Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALTO) ("Alto" or the "Company") announced that it intends to apply to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") to consolidate the number of its outstanding shares of common stock.

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Klok, the Chairman and CEO of the Company, stated: "Notwithstanding the turbulence of financial markets, we believe that a consolidation of our outstanding shares may help decrease the volatility associated with the Company's share price. In addition, we also want to be responsive to the needs of our shareholders and, therefore, today's announcement is also a reflection of more stringent clearing procedures which now apply to low priced stocks and the Company's effort to increase the acceptability of its shares by brokers and other depository institutions."

The Company expects to make the submission for approval to FINRA within the coming weeks, although timing of such approval is inherently uncertain.
