Joystar Attains $30 Million in Annualized Sales

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 27, 2005 -- Joystar, Inc. (OTC BB: JYSR), the Nation's largest and fastest-growing travel agency network announced today the Company is experiencing sequential double-digit monthly growth in travel sales for 2005 and that August bookings reached $30 million annualized.

The dramatic increase in bookings for August puts the Company at a current run-rate of $30,000,000 in annual sales. William M. Alverson, CEO of Joystar, commented, "We are pleased to report the continued month-over-month growth in travel bookings. Based on the dramatic strength in bookings and rate at which they are growing, we believe we will reach $100 million in annualized bookings by the end of the first quarter in 2006."

Joystar's leadership position as the nation's largest and fastest-growing network of travel agents continues to gain momentum. The Company attributes its dramatic growth to several important factors including the opening and expansion of the Miami Cruise Center, enhanced preferred supplier commissions, and organic growth in professional agent memberships, which recently exceeded 2,500 professional agents.

The emerging virtual travel agency model represents $7.6 billion in travel sales annually (Source: Credit Suisse/ First Boston). Joystar is capitalizing on this model by providing this growing segment of the travel agent community with the resources to grow their businesses more effectively.

Alverson continued, "Joystar's gross travel bookings increased 100% from July to August which clearly demonstrates the acceptance of our value proposition to the travel agent community. It validates our strategy of forgoing sign-up fees and transaction fees in lieu of creating a true partnership with thousands of professional travel sellers." Although bookings do not constitute revenue or income under generally accepted accounting principles, the Company feels that the growth in bookings is increasingly an indication of the consumer buying its travel agent network is capable of generating.
