Reko International Group to Buy Back Up to 355,730 of Its Common Shares

WINDSOR, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Reko International Group Inc. ("Reko") (TSX:REK) announced today of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid for 355,730 of its outstanding common shares subject to approval by the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The notice provides that Reko may, during the 12 month period commencing July 14, 2008 and ending July 13, 2009, purchase on the Toronto Stock Exchange up to a total of 355,730 of its common shares, being approximately 5% of the outstanding common shares. The price that Reko will pay for any such shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of common shares which may be purchased and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by Reko. All purchased shares will be cancelled. During the preceding 12 months, Reko purchased 35,900 shares at an average price of $2.82 per share pursuant to its normal course issuer bid, which expires on July 12, 2008. The average daily trading volume in the previously completed 6 months is 821 shares. There are 7,114,592 common shares of Reko currently outstanding as of today.

Reko believes that its common shares have been trading in a price range, which does not reflect their value in relation to Reko's business and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, Reko believes that its outstanding common shares represent an attractive investment and a desirable use of a portion of its available funds.
