FIMA, Inc. Announces Share Retirement

Reduces Total Outstanding Shares by Nearly 30 Percent

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - FIMA, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FIMA), an emerging diversified land development company, announced today that the Company has officially retired 19.5 Million shares of Company stock. This share retirement reduces the number of outstanding shares from 65.71 Million to 45.21 Million, or 29.6%. The shares were acquired by the Company from prior management following the 2007 merger with Fishing Buddy, Incorporated. The management of FIMA, Inc. determined that it would be in the best interest of its shareholders to reduce the total number of outstanding shares rather than hold them for later resale.

According to a FIMA spokesperson, "We decided upon this course of action largely as a result of careful analysis of our ongoing operations and consideration of our needs as we move forward with our expansion plans. We became convinced that retiring such a substantial block of shares provided the greatest benefit to our shareholders, and this has always been our overriding concern. We have significantly expanded the scope of our operations and experienced recent success through some of our subsidiaries. Therefore, we hope to continue to pursue our goals without the need for additional outside financing."
