Medspa Solutions Awarded Contract by Columbia Physician

2007 Looks to Be a Banner Year for Medspa Solutions

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- MedSpa Solutions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Winsted Holdings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WNSH), a Business Development Company (BDC), today announced that it was awarded a comprehensive consultancy contract by a physician in Columbia, South Carolina. This Contract covers Business Development, Site Design & Build out, Staffing & Training, Vendor Relationships, Licensing & Compliance Assistance and Custom Marketing Development.

Columbia, the first city, as well as the first planned capital, in America named for Christopher Columbus was founded March 26, 1786, as the center of government, education, and commerce in the Palmetto State. Today, the Columbia Metropolitan Area is home to over 200 years of history, beautiful Lake Murray, The University of South Carolina, the Army's largest training base at Fort Jackson, numerous festivals and recreational opportunities. The Greater Columbia area is a great place to live, work, raise a family and/or those golden retirement years!

"A new medspa in Columbia should do very well," stated Winsted CEO Mark Ellis. "The area is known for its friendly faces and accommodating attitudes. Whether traveling by air or vehicle; customers will love Columbia's easy access. Only 10 cities in America have three major interstates transecting their metropolitan areas and Columbia is one of them. Columbia is served by I-20, I-26 and I-77, and is within 90 miles of I-85 and I-95, making the new medspa easy to access from every direction."

Ellis further stated, "2007 is shaping up to be a banner year for MedSpa Solutions. Inquires are coming from all corners of the States. The word of our medspa expertise is building and gaining momentum. We're also happy to say that this increasing revenue base is happening in a decreasing expense environment for MedSpa Solutions.

"There is a feeling here that's hard to describe, a vibrancy in the midst of comfortable calm. On one hand, interested parties with written Letters Of Interests are shopping Winsted and its subsidiaries. While on the other hand, we are keeping a keen eye on our own growth prospects. A thriving growing business is usually worth more than a simple shell. We are proud of our heritage and excited about our future," concluded Ellis.
