General Corporate Update

Given continuing downturn in the US sub-prime debt market, Global Capital would like to comment on its current business model and lending criteria. The Company does not provide bridge loans to the US or Canadian sub-prime mortgage market. Global Capital finances its loans with equity and does not use excessive leverage. Presently, Global Capital has no debt. With the recent pressures being exerted on the capital markets, the Company has seen an increase in the volume of bridge loan demands, which Global Capital will continue to review, select and underwrite in a prudent manner.
