S3 Investment Company Announces Filing of Annual Report With OTC Disclosure Service

Report Includes Narrative Discussion With Expectations for Redwood Capital Closings for 2010 and Beyond

DANVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - S3 Investment Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SIVC) today announced that its annual report with consolidated financial results for fiscal year 2009 has been posted to the Pink Sheets OTC Disclosure and News Service. The financial statements can be viewed by looking up the company's stock trading symbol at www.pinksheets.com.

"The information in the annual report is extremely comprehensive, and I hope that all of our shareholders will review it to get the most accurate picture possible of the company's current status as well as its outlook for the future," said Jim Bickel, CEO of S3 Investments, Inc. "We are pleased to have this report posted within the required timeframe to keep our 'Current Information' status with the OTC Disclosure Service. We place a high value on transparency, which is why we choose to report our financial information through the service.

"Included in the narrative sections of the report, particularly the Company Information and Disclosure Statement, are discussion concerning the business of S3's wholly owned Redwood Capital subsidiary. This information may be of interest to the company's shareholder and potential shareholders, since it outlines Redwood Capital's performance over the last year and some discussion of management's expectations for the 2010 fiscal year. As we all are aware, the past year was extremely tumultuous for the global economy and the capital markets were particularly hard hit. Redwood Capital was still able to contribute to the closing of two round of financing for its client, Boyuan Construction Group, in a period where few other companies could close any financings at all.

"As noted in the filing, management is expecting to grow sales to $4 million in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, as a result of the current projects in process and those which the company is currently closing. Based on Redwood's pipeline of future business, we are comfortable projecting $10 million in revenues ending June 30, 2011.

"It is also important to note that due to the fiscal year end date of June 30, this report does not include any substantial discussion of our new Redwood Medical division and our expectations for it."

Mr. Bickel recently returned from a trip to China where he continued to assist in the expansion of the company's subsidiary structure to include its new Redwood Medical subsidiary. He also met with existing Redwood Capital clients, interviewed several new potential clients, met with new sovereign wealth funds, and directed the activities of all of the company's subsidiary management teams.

The company expects to issue a report on Mr. Bickel's trip in the next several days.
