Medina International Holdings, Inc. Extends Patent License for Its 12' and 15' Boat Design and Fire Pump

Company Seeing Increased Global Demand for Marine Security and Fire Safety Watercraft

SAN BERNARDINO, CA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Medina International Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: MIHI) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Albert Mardikian, the patent holder for the 12' and 15' boat designs for Rescue and Fire Rescue boats, to extend the patent license term for ten years expiring in 2017. The Agreement provides for exclusive license rights for the 12' and 15' patented boat designs and non-exclusive license rights on the Patented Fire Pump design.

"We are pleased that Mr. Mardikian has agreed to extend the license term on these patents," stated Daniel Medina, CEO of Medina International Holdings, Inc. "We have received very positive feedback on our boats and are experiencing a wave of new interest from both domestic and international agencies. We are confident in our product and are anxiously anticipating an upcoming trade show, which should be announced shortly, and several meetings with representatives of countries that have a direct need for our boats."

He added, "The worldwide need far outstrips the currently available options for boats such as ours, which fits nicely into our overall growth strategy and marketing plan. Our internal sales forecasts predict demand that, if global conditions remain the same, could very quickly turn Medina into an important player in the global marine security marketplace."
