Atlantis Business Development Corporation Gives Notice to All Shareholders

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 19, 2006 -- Atlantis Business Development Corporation, Inc. (OTC BB: ABDE) announced today a notice to all shareholders that the Board of Directors is aware of a possibility of naked short selling of the company's stock. Naked short selling is where shares of stock are sold without having access to those shares. Regulation SHO made naked short selling illegal.

The Board of Directors has ordered a full shareholder list and DTC selling sheets for each day since the possibility of naked short selling was uncovered.

The Board of Directors wants its shareholders to be aware of the possibility of such sales and to know the Board plans to vigorously pursue any such illegal activity with the SEC.

The Board believes if shareholders order their shares in certificate form, sellers who may be selling short without shares will be less able to borrow shares, and this activity will be reduced or will cease.

Ordering your shares may be done by contacting your broker or trading house and asking them to put your shares in certificate form.

CEO Christopher M Dubeau states, "Remember, these people feed on fear, they are simply trying to get you to sell your shares lower than what management believes to be the real value of the Company's stock."
