TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2011) - C2 Global Technologies Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB:COBT) announced that its proposed name change to Counsel RB Capital Inc. became effective today.

In December 2010 the Company acquired the 25% interest in its asset liquidation subsidiary, Counsel RB Capital LLC ("Counsel RB"), owned by Counsel RB's Co-CEOs, Jonathan and Adam Reich. The Company issued a total of 3,242,000 common shares in exchange for the minority interest in Counsel RB, which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary. The share consideration represented approximately 12.5%, post-issuance, of the Company's outstanding common shares. Jonathan and Adam Reich have now been appointed Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company and Allan Silber, the Company's Chairman and current CEO, will become President.

Since commencing operations in the second quarter of 2009, Counsel RB Capital LLC has generated all of the Company's revenue and has established itself as a major participant in the North American asset liquidation sector. Consequently, the Company's Board of Directors approved a proposal to change the Company's name to Counsel RB Capital Inc. The proposal was approved pursuant to the written consent of a majority of the Company's shareholders, without a meeting, as permitted by Florida law and the Company's articles and by-laws, and an Information Statement was sent to shareholders regarding the proposal.

In addition to acquiring turnkey manufacturing facilities and used industrial machinery and equipment, Counsel RB arranges traditional asset disposition sales, including liquidation and auction sales.
