Bookkeeper International Equities Corp. Provides Details on Merchant Banking Services

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - February 18, 2011) - Bookkeeper International Equities, Corp. (PINKSHEETS: BKPR), provider of management advisory and merchant banking services for micro and small cap publicly traded companies, today provided details as to how the Company has created an innovative approach to small cap companies trading on the OTC capital markets through the use of merchant banking and private equity.

Merchant Banking is undefined in U.S. banking and securities laws, but is generally understood to mean "negotiated private equity investment by financial institutions in the unregistered securities of either privately or publicly held companies." Entities providing merchant banking services offer Investment Banking, Counseling, and Advising to corporations and wealthy individuals on how to use their money. The classic Merchant Bank has long been defined as a "European Financial Institution," based on the geographic origins of such activity. In fact, America does not even have "Merchant Banks" but rather entities which are engaged in the activity of Merchant Banking.

The provider of merchant banking services acts as principal and/or agent in Project Financing, Mergers or Acquisitions, and/or Advising Clients in the "structuring" of the funding needed for their projects, and/or assisting them in their negotiations for the realization of a project. A "good" Merchant Banker has come to be understood as one which combines experience and contacts, whether those are professional or political, with their own capital and creativity in structuring deals.

By committing its own funds, Bookkeeper International does not act as a broker, but rather as a principal -- one who, together with its contacts, has the ability to provide the funds, expertise and advisory skills needed to realize almost any given type of project. Being a principal, Bookkeeper International Equities has the leverage to approve or disapprove of deals based on their specified criteria. This control invariably benefits companies who exceed their stated criteria and who have existing business relationships. The Company plans to capitalize on the vast network of relationships to provide their clients with specialized merchant banking services.

In the coming weeks we will provide additional information on Bookkeeper International Equities' business, types of services offered, opportunities available in the market as well as the company's strategic plan of operation.
