Gateway International Holdings Selects SAP® Business One and Level Eight Systems for New Business Management System

ANAHEIM, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- Gateway International Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GWYI) announced an agreement with Level Eight Systems, Inc. and SAP® America, Inc. (NYSE: SAP) to implement the SAP Business One ERP suite within the Machine and Tools Group and the Precision Manufacturing Group at Gateway. An integrated, affordable business management solution designed specifically for small businesses, SAP Business One extends the benefits of SAP's business applications to a rapidly growing segment of customers. As an SAP Business One partner, Level Eight Systems will provide Gateway with the technology, business process and consulting knowledge to easily adopt successful, long-term information technology strategies.

This partnership will provide software and consulting services to all Gateway business units with limited resources and technology infrastructure to gain immediate benefits in better managing their businesses. Together, Level Eight and SAP will provide the Gateway management team with the ability to make smart information technology decisions, improve future performance, and achieve long-term success with little financial or strategic risk.

"I am very excited to be associated with Level Eight and SAP in this project. We spent considerable time researching system platforms and we believe that the SAP Business One is the right choice for all of our business segments now and into the foreseeable future," commented Stephen Kasprisin, Chief Financial Officer of Gateway. Mr. Kasprisin added, "This platform will allow us to consolidate our back office systems while upgrading our manufacturing efficiencies and cost management systems. In addition, SAP® Business One has undergone rigorous Sarbanes-Oxley reviews and has proven to comply with the provisions of SOX 404. This will be very beneficial to the Company once SOX 404 testing is required in fiscal 2008."

Tim Consalvi, Gateway's CEO, commented, "SAP Business One not only provides immediate results in operating efficiency and real-time business decisions, but also comes with an affordable price tag. We recognize the importance of leveraging business software and we consider this software as an integral component of our business growth strategy. In addition, this platform will provide easy integration of acquired operations which is a key factor in our growth plans. I am very happy that we have finalized a decision on our software platform and I look forward to its implementation in the near future."
