AOP Worldwide, a Subsidiary of Talisman Holdings, Announces a 10-Year $100 Million Purchase Order

SPRINGFIELD, OH--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) -  Talisman Holdings (PINKSHEETS: TMHO) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Advanced Organic Products Worldwide (AOP) has finalized a definitive purchase agreement with JKS Consulting Co., Ltd (JKS), of Bangkok, Thailand. Under the terms of the Agreement, JKS will purchase proprietary organic fertilizers from AOP. The Agreement calls for a minimum purchase of $10 million per year over a 10-year period.

JKS services a South Asian Region which includes Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. AOP believes this association will lead to explosive growth because of the existing customer base of JKS and the superiority of the AOP products.

The leading products in the AOP portfolio, as created by its technology partner, are organic products which are manufactured through a proprietary process which converts fish offal and fish gurry (residual by-product of commercial fisheries operations) into protein-rich liquid fertilizer, insecticide and herbicide products, through the organic process known as hydrolysis. This proprietary process produces an all-natural (organic) fertilizer which, since its commercial introduction in 2004, has been proven to consistently and considerably increase crop yields, reduce the cost of fertilizer on a per acre basis, decrease the required water usage, and improve soil conditions (micro and macro-nutrients, minerals, peptides and soil amino acid content). This product is further 100% water soluble; can be applied via overhead, drip or flood irrigation systems; results in no soil leaching; contains no heavy metals; will not damage (or burn) crops if over-applied, and is environmentally friendly (organic) and designated as such by the U.S. EPA and OMRI. Using naturally occurring Bacillus and other enzymes, the protein from the fish offal and gurry is hydrolyzed, producing nutrient and vitamin rich amino acids, peptides and growth hormones. The enzymes are then put into suspended animation at which time small amounts of phosphoric acid is added to stabilize further enzyme breakdown. The product is then run through a centrifuge to separate the remaining oil from the solids land run through a 200 mesh screen to insure that our fertilizer can be delivered through all forms of irrigation systems. One hundred percent (100%) of the phosphorus and naturally occurring nitrogen (fish naturally contain approx. 2.3% nitrogen) are used by the plants and crop, thereby improving soil conditions with absolutely no leaching or other adverse environmental effects.

David Long, Talisman President, said: "This Agreement represents a giant step forward for the Company. It introduces our cutting edge certified organic products to a new market, and is the first strategic move in our concept of global marketing. We are dedicated to practical agricultural solutions without any adverse effects on the environment."
