InfoSmart Group, Inc. Is First Company to Bring Blu-Ray Production to Hong Kong and China

InfoSmart's Equipment Purchase From Anwell Technologies Provides Strategic Advantage in the Fast Moving Blu-Ray Market; Anwell's "Smart BD" Model Can Produce up to 500,000 Units/Month

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - InfoSmart Group, Inc. ("InfoSmart" or the "Company") (OTCBB: IFSG), a leading recordable digital versatile disc ("DVDR") manufacturer in Hong Kong and Brazil, today announced its recent purchase from the world's only vertically integrated optical disc equipment maker. Anwell Technologies has sold their Blu-Ray Disc (BD) replication system -- "Smart BD" -- to InfoSmart. The BD system will be installed in InfoSmart's Hong Kong plant making it the first Blu-Ray Line in commercial use in China and Hong Kong.

InfoSmart and Anwell have also agreed to collaborate and leverage on each other's strengths. Specifically, the two companies will share the Blu-Ray disc manufacturing process know-how with each other. On February 19, 2008, Toshiba announced that it had bowed out from the format war. According to research firm Understanding & Solutions, it is estimated that global demand for Blu-Ray discs is expected to increase from 0.13 billion in 2007 to over 1.5 billion in 2011.

"The 'victory' of Blu-Ray in our industry was an anticipated result for InfoSmart. Though we initially hedged our positions on both platforms, we certainly concentrated our efforts to find a viable Blu-Ray line well before the decision was made by consumers," Parker Seto, InfoSmart CEO, stated. "Blu-Ray production complements our company strategy to expand into optical discs with content and positions our company as the leader in Hong Kong and China," Seto continued.

The system's manufacturer, Anwell Technologies, Ltd., is a Singapore-based company specializing in optical disc replicators and peripherals. Anwell has more than 120 disc replicating systems throughout the world. The Anwell "Smart BD" system purchased by InfoSmart is capable of producing 500,000 units per month once 100% operational. InfoSmart anticipates a go-live date of the manufacturing line by the end of June 2008. The Company disclosed the buy-price of the unit at US$1.4 million.

Mr. Seto further commented, "We have several strategies related to Blu-Ray production, sales and distribution both for our current market and select new customers. The first step was undoubtedly the sourcing of an excellent and supportive supplier in which we can place our confidence. We spent over a year researching potential suppliers with the necessary capacity to support our business. Anwell's system is a welcome addition to our facilities and the cooperation and partnership between our firms is sure to benefit InfoSmart, our customers and shareholders long-term."
