Diversifies Portfolio With "Wheel Workz" Franchise Licenses

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- Prime Time Group Inc.

"This acquisition represents the first in a number of acquisitions to be announced that are consistent with the business and strategic plan announced in January of this year," says Johnny Ray Arnold, Chairman of Prime Time Group Inc.

Our expectations are to establish 30-50 Wheel Workz locations across Florida and other areas we have signed agreements for within the next three years. "With annual licensing fees, we are looking at $3.75 Million in licensing fees before location revenues," says Johnny Arnold. "This could easily be a $100 million venture within a relatively short period of time."

"The opportunity for growth with Prime Time is enormous, franchises alone currently have revenues of approximately $4 Million per year and that doesn't include the licensing fees." Ingram adds, "We provide the entire solution, SALES, Rent-to-Own, Service, and Repair for all vehicle types including high end cars like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, BMW and Mercedes to name a few."

Wheel Workz, the parent company (, which is located in Memphis, Tennessee, is the largest independently owned supplier of original equipment and custom wheels in the Mid-South region of the United States.
