GT Legend Automotive Announces Move Into International Remittance Market

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - GT Legend Automotive Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GTLA) announced recently that a Binding Letter of Intent had been signed to acquire Sovereign Transfer Services Corp. GTLA now announces that Sovereign Transfer Services has appointed an advisor for entry to its first international remittance market.

Sir Michael Burton-Prateley, Executive Chairman of Sovereign, remarked, "While the US market will remain a dominant domain for our activities, we have been researching and planning our first move into the international remittance market, targeting attractive 'niche' opportunities.

"We have determined that the German-Turkish corridor merits our serious attention and to this end have selected our advisers and partners for this significant step. We will be advised by Herax Partners, a boutique Investment Bank, based in Frankfurt, which has extensive knowledge of both the Turkish and German markets.

"There are over 4 Million people in Germany, of Turkish origin, with the highest concentration in the cities of Baden Wurttemberg and Nord-Rhine Westfallen. 60% of Turkish immigrants live in the major cities of the former West Germany -- Berlin, Koln, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt as well as Munich, Mainz and Stuttgart.

"Remittances from Germany to Turkey, which comprise in excess of 50% all German outbound remittances, make a substantial contribution to the Turkish economy. We would like to play a role in making the remittance process less onerous on those supporting their dependents at home."
