KMA Capital Partners, Inc. Announces National Franchise for Mergers and Acquisitions

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- KMA Capital Partners, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KMCP) (KMA Capital) today announced the formation of KMA Capital Mergers and Acquisitions, Inc., a franchisor of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) services nationally. Franco Ferrari, CBC, CFBI, CBI, has been named President of this new venture, confirmed Doug Calaway, president of KMA Capital Partners, Inc.

"Having been involved in franchising since 1975 and realizing the vast need of M&A services to be done at a highly professional level has brought us to this juncture," said Ferrari. "It's sad, but I have seen a lack of professionalism in the M&A arena."

KMA Capital has developed this new subsidiary to further penetrate the market of companies selling or seeking financing in the $2 to $20 million range, a greatly under-served marketplace. KMA Capital currently has 11 U.S. field offices offering merchant banking and financial services.

"Effective immediately, our new subsidiary will begin offering an M&A franchise for $49,500. We expect to sell up to 200 units over the next several years," said Calaway.

Ferrari further commented, "Our franchise model will require all local, state and federal licensing, as needed. Training will be a mandate before any office is opened, with eventual required membership in the IBBA. Our goal is to set the standards in the M&A industry that others will follow in the future."

KMA Capital Partners, Inc., with corporate headquarters in Orlando, Florida, is a merchant banking firm that engages in investment banking, financial consulting, negotiations of mergers and acquisitions, portfolio management, turnaround services, "business development" company services and commercial ventures focusing on mid-cap private and public companies. Current national Field Offices are located in Los Angeles, CA; Austin, TX; Freeport, IL; Huntsville, AL; Portland, ME; Cleveland, OH; Mid-Atlantic covering Baltimore/Washington, DC; Seattle, WA; Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando, FL.
