Internet Entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal Eclipses Competition in Cyberspace

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - Gurbaksh Chahal isn't just another data superhighway opportunist; he's a prodigy. Joining the ranks of Internet pioneers Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Chahal has been garnering recognition for his vision since he was a teenager. Having recently sold his revolutionary business, BlueLithium -- one of the largest and fastest growing online global advertising networks -- to Yahoo! for a staggering $300 million, Chahal has established himself as one of the youngest, brightest and most successful entrepreneurs in the trade. His genius has amassed over $100MM in net worth and become an international inspiration. And he's done it all by his twenty-fifth birthday.

Born in the town of Tarn Taran, in Punjab, India, Chahal immigrated about twenty years ago with his family to the United States. Coming from an exceedingly strict, disciplined background where education was paramount, Chahal always displayed a particular potential and an intellectual aptitude far beyond his years. Embodying an ideal mixture of modesty, ambition, creativity and will that has so consummately served him in his zealous endeavors, Gurbaksh Chahal was destined for success.

At 16, with a burgeoning entrepreneurial spirit, Chahal founded his first online venture, ClickAgents. Within two years, ClickAgents went on to merge with ValueClick, the largest online advertising network in existence at the time, at an all-stock deal valued at $40 million.

After the merger, he boldly left ValueClick with the vision of creating the largest advertising network in the world. In a mere four years, BlueLithium has achieved that goal, not only rivaling, but, with this merger, surpassing Internet powerhouses Google, AOL, and VCLK. With such highly esteemed success, Chahal has become an acclaimed speaker and expert in the interactive marketing world. His oracular ability to anticipate the demands of an ever-changing market has ensured his risk-taking success.

This year, BlueLithium made the OnHollywood 100 List (most important companies in video, digital entertainment and media), and was named Top 100 Private Companies in America -- for three consecutive years. In 2006, BlueLithium was named Top Innovator of the Year by venture organization, AlwaysOn. BlueLithium is the first and only advertising network to ever earn the award.

Chahal is one of the most experienced and successful CEOs in interactive marketing. Keep your eye UP ON THE SCREEN for Gurbaksh Chahal! - http://www.bluelithium.com
