Perihelion Global Files Amendment to Reduce Authorized Shares by 75,000,000; Announces Stock Buyback Program

SANTA ROSA BEACH, FL and WILIMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - August 27, 2007) - Perihelion Global (PINKSHEETS: PHGI), a development company with interests in natural resources, alternative energies, and advanced communications, today announced that the company has filed an amendment with the Delaware Secretary of State to reduce the total authorized shares of the company to 425,000,000, a reduction of 15% from the current authorized share count. The company also announced that, effective immediately, officers and directors of Perihelion will be authorized to purchase common shares in the open market under a stock buyback program.

Perihelion management remains committed to supporting a strong share price, and the latest reduction in the authorized shares follows what the company believes has been a consistent policy to improve the capital structure of the corporation and enhance shareholder value. Over the last two weeks, the company, in cooperation with its transfer agent, has cancelled in excess of 10,450,000 shares. Further, when the Delaware Secretary of State amendment is confirmed and officially reflected in the state records, the company will have reduced the authorized share count by over 98.5% of the original figure inherited by the company as it went public in 2006. The company expects the amended figure to be reflected at the Delaware Secretary of State after 5pm EDT today.

In tandem with the share reduction amendment, Perihelion officers and directors have approved a share buyback program whereby management may, from time to time, purchase common shares in the open market as conditions warrant. The program will remain effective for a minimum of six months and does not specify a specific limit to the quantity of shares that may be purchased. To provide disclosure to shareholders, Perihelion intends to submit a summary of any purchases by officers or directors to the Pinksheets site at the end of any month in which there is activity under the program.
