Cronus Capital Markets Launches the CCM BetterWorld Stock Index CDA™

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) -

The CCM BetterWorld Stock Index CDA™ represents all companies in Canada focused in the areas of:

- Green Energy - wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, biofuel, biomass, hydrogen/fuel cell, battery technology and wave power

- Green Related - construction, design, recycling

- Environmental Technology - air purification and filtration, water treatment, filtration, and soil remediation.

Cronus Capital Markets created the ISE-CCM Green Energy Index (ISE:POW) with a 5 year return of 66% and the ISE-CCM Future Energy Index (ISE:NEW) with a 5 year return of 429%, both of which trade on the ISE, the largest options exchange in the world. CCM expects ETF's to also be listed on these indexes much in the same way that an ETF was listed on the NYSE based on their Homeland Security Index.

This index has been created as a tool to be used by investors looking for opportunities in this BetterWorld Movement. All too often investors find it difficult to identify the opportunities they seek in new and emerging sectors because there is no one central place where they can be found.

Cronus Capital Markets launched the "Invest in a BetterWorld™" initiative during the spring of 2008 in order to focus the attention of the investment community on small and medium-sized public companies that are in the business of Bettering the World through their goods and services.

The CCM BetterWorld Stock Index CDA™ is a 96 page document, where in addition to the master index list, each index component has a page where some introductory information and analysis can be found. To view this document directly, follow the link below (click on "view PDF" once re-directed):

Michael Soni, President and CEO of Cronus Capital Markets, Inc. (CCM) has stated, "After a thorough analysis of Canadian public companies operating in the Green/Alternative Energy industries as well as those companies involved with Environmental Technology, we have determined that they are rather undervalued and, ultimately, neglected by the market. Since there is very little information available to investors on these companies, we are launching this initiative over the spring and summer months - at the height of the driving season in North America - to energize these sectors in Canada, thereby making it easier for investors to make decisions. With so little information available on these companies, as is the current state of affairs, everyone loses. The capital markets need to step up and provide greater market efficiency for these companies. These sectors are far too important."

Mr. Soni went on to say, "We are interested in being a powerful ally to BetterWorld companies in Canada. With access to mainstream media, hundreds of thousands of retail investors (including accredited investors) thousands of stock brokers, and institutions interested in this sector from all across North America - we are in a unique position to assist individual companies in these industries, as well as the industries as a whole."
