Cephas Discusses Significant Market Opportunities in South Africa

President Obama to Visit in July

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2013) -  Cephas Holding Corp (PINKSHEETS: CEHC) today outlined what it believes to be market opportunities for its wholly owned business unit Global Leadership Institute ( in South Africa.

South Africa has the most advanced economy in Africa with a growing middle class. Based on GLI's research and exit interviews with past students, there is a strong desire for branded education such as the previous programs that the company ran with Stanford University. The company estimates that the government of South Africa spends approximately $2 billion annually on training, skills development, and executive education.

The importance of this market is expected to be highlighted even further when President Obama visits South Africa in July.

GLI is run by Mr. David Altman, a native of South Africa, who has been a senior advisor to the Business Council for International Understanding for the past ten years. His activities include establishing relationships with senior public and private sector leaders to develop trade and media outreach missions and joint programs focused on job creation through entrepreneurship. Mr. Altman was the Executive Director of the US Export Council, an initiative established in 1993 during the Clinton Administration in cooperation with the US Department of Commerce to facilitate trade between the US, Southern Africa and the Middle East.

Additionally, to assist with execution of its plans, the company has secured the services of a number of leading experts. Company experts are drawn from world recognized institutions such as Macquarie, American University, and Cornell University, as well as from the Clinton Administration.
