ParaFin Issuance of Preferred Shares Paid for With Bearer Bonds

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  ParaFin Corporation (PINKSHEETS: PFNO): The Directors of ParaFin Corporation In response to multiple inquiries from shareholders and potential shareholders, ParaFin Corporation felt compelled to put out a statement on the company's Bearer Bond holdings.

On January 27, 2010, ParaFin Corporation released an annual report reflecting an asset of US$3.63 billion represented by 2,400 Bearer Bonds issued June 16, 2000 dated for redemption on June 16, 2010. The 2,400 Euro Bearer Bonds were issued by a major European Bank, have a face value of 1,000,000 Euros each and have accumulated interest at 5.5% from the issuance date.

Bearer Bonds of this denomination and amount are typically reserved solely for and held only by banks and large financial institutions. After the original issuance, these Bonds were acquired by and delivered to a single individual. In an effort to promptly liquidate the assets of this individual's estate, the Trustee of the individual's estate negotiated the Agreement with ParaFin.

To finance the Exploration and Exploitation of the 6.06 million Acre Hydrocarbon Farm-out Agreement in the Republic of Paraguay, ParaFin Corporation was in the process of selling an issue of Preferred Shares. The Subscription Agreement negotiated by ParaFin with the Trustee for the sale of the Preferred Shares allowed the Trustee to pay ParaFin Corporation US$3.63 billion by the delivery to ParaFin of 2,400 Bearer Bonds issued June 16, 2000 dated for redemption on June 16, 2010. Under the Agreement, ParaFin is entitled to 100% of the accumulated interest owed to date. 

The Preferred shares issued by ParaFin have a legend printed on the face of the Certificate stating they are "Redeemable, Retractable on Demand Non-Voting Shares Issue Price US$1,000,000 per Share... secured only by funds from the sale or redemption of the 2,400 5.5% Euro Bearer Bonds."

ParaFin retained expert Forensic Document Examiners and has done substantial due diligence regarding the Bonds over the past two years. ParaFin is now working with private consultants who are in the process of setting meetings with the top executives at the issuing Bank in order to negotiate the redemption of the bonds. Legal opinions received by ParaFin confirmed that whoever is in possession of the Bonds in hand has the right to redemption.
