MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Latitude Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LTDI), a manufacturer of high-performance, center console powerboats, announces today that it is making progress on the possible buyout from an International group.

On or about June 11th, 2008 Latitude Industries announced a possible buyout and many speculations in regards to this possible buyout have come to our attention. It is true that we have been approached by an International conglomerate and at this point in time we can report that we are making progress.

I'm committed to this company, to this industry and to our shareholders," said Orlando Hernandez COO Latitude Powerboats.
