BDC Capital, Inc. Announces New Advisory Board, David R. Pomije to Lead

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2005 -- BDC Capital, Inc. (OTC BB: BDCI) today announced that David R. Pomije will join BDC Capital as the Lead Advisor of the company's newly formed Advisory Board, August 1, 2005.

The company had earlier announced that Pomije would serve as the company's chairman of the board. However, Mr. Pomije's current business activities necessitate a somewhat more limited role.

Pomije, 48, was the founder and chairman of Funco Inc., in March of 1988. Funco was sold to Barnes & Noble, which now operates the former Funcoland stores as GameStop, for $162 million in May 2000. His prior experience also includes nine years in the consumer electronics industry.
