Incoming, Inc. Announces Acquisition of North American Bio-Energies LLC

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) - Incoming, Inc. (OTCBB: ICNN), a brand acceleration firm, announced today the acquisition of North American Bio-Energies LLC (NABE), owner of Foothills Bio-Energies in NC. The acquisition marks a powerful new entry into the alternative energy industry for Incoming, Inc.

Currently the state's largest producer of biofuel, Foothills Bio-Energies has positioned itself as more than a provider of fuel in the western part of the state -- the company is also nurturing their growing industry by serving as a test bed for new biodiesel production technology. Led by life long oil-man and current PAC Chairman of the Petroleum Marketers' Association of America Sam Bell, Foothills is the epitome of innovation in the biodiesel industry. The company is located in a former adhesives facility that was largely equipped for storage and processing of chemicals. Based on a complete regional energy cycle, the company also uses local feedstock as their raw material, reducing transportation costs for raw materials and providing the maximum return to the local economy.

In addition to these operational innovations, the company is a significant contributor to the biodiesel industry's growth on the whole. In partnership with Appalachian State University, Foothills is participating in a study to determine which feedstock oils are best suited to production and processing in the regional economy. The company has also provided a portion of their facility as a testing ground for a prototype technology that will be commercialized at a 66-million-gallon-per-year facility slated for Wilmington, NC.

The acquisition of NABE marks a momentous opportunity for Incoming, Inc. as the company expands footholds in a variety of industries. Incoming, Inc. CEO Ephren Taylor said, "The time was right for us to make this move -- acquisition of NABE poises Incoming to be at the forefront of the upcoming alternative fuel movement. With Congress' passing of the American Clean Energy and Security Act in 2009, it is clear that 2010 will mark a spike in the demand for biodiesel as industry giants push to meet new emission standards. We are proud to be a part of a business initiative that is not only fiscally sound, but will have a beneficial impact on the environment."

About NABE: North American Bio-Energies, LLC is a NC corporation that was formed in 2005. The Company retrofitted a resin/adhesive plant in Lenoir, NC, to produce high quality biodiesel from agri-based feedstock. The Company began selling biodiesel in 2006 under the name Foothills Bio-Energies. Foothills has produced biodiesel continuously since its inception. Foothills has several significant advantages over their competition: low overhead, on-site laboratory and no concentration of credit risk. Foothills plant is located in Caldwell County, North Carolina, which is a depressed county with low labor, property tax and utility rates. The current arrangement, which runs through 2022, with the owners of the property, has Foothills paying annual property taxes on the facility, $16,000, in lieu of rent. Google has just moved their largest Server facility to Caldwell County, to property that abuts the biodiesel plant. Since Foothills has a full laboratory on-site, they do not lose time or money sending samples out for testing. Foothills could sell their entire product to only one of its customers but, to combat a concentration credit risk, they currently are selling biodiesel to eight petroleum distributors.

About Sam Bell: The son of a British Petroleum Oil Company executive, Sam Bell has been in the oil industry all of his life. After college, Mr. Bell opened the first self-service gasoline location in Washington County, Virginia. Over the next few years he acquired several petroleum distributors in southwest Virginia and grew them into a regional multi-brand distribution company. In 1987, Mr. Bell sold his company and founded an Investment Banking firm specializing in oil industry companies and products. In 1997, he purchased Echols Oil Company, a petroleum distributor in South Carolina, and has since grown that company into a regional multi-product distributor. Mr. Bell's ability to identify quality talent along with his system of developing a strong cohesive work environment has allowed him to maintain chairmanship of the aforementioned companies and provided him with the necessary time to launch Verde Bio Fuels, Inc. Mr. Bell is the 2008 President of the South Carolina Petroleum Marketers Association and was appointed to the Petroleum Marketers' Association of America's Executive Committee as the PAC Chairman for 2009. Mr. Bell is a highly sought after speaker and consultant in both the petroleum and biodiesel industries. He has assisted numerous municipalities with their conversion to biodiesel and ethanol. He is currently consulting with several foreign companies regarding the establishment of a worldwide biodiesel and feedstock distribution system.

About Biodiesel: Biodiesel is the name of a clean burning alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel can be used as a pure fuel or blended with petroleum in any percentage. B20 (a blend of 20 percent by volume biodiesel with 80 percent by volume petroleum diesel) has demonstrated significant environmental benefits with a minimum increase in cost for fleet operations and other consumers. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics. This makes Biodiesel a highly desired asset in the public and private sector's current initiatives to reduce fuel emissions and build a greener, more sustainable future.
