Salon City Files 8-K Reporting Termination of Placement Agent Agreement With Capital Growth Resources

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - April 24, 2009) - Ewire -- Salon City, Inc. (OTCBB: SALN) announces that it has filed a Form 8-K today with the Securities and Exchange Commission noticing the unexplained termination of the Company's exclusive Placement Agent Agreement with Capital Growth Resources, Inc. ("CGR") of El Cajon, California.

Salon City entered into a mutual understanding with Capital Growth Resources on July 2, 2008 that was intended to lead to the signing of a formal placement agent agreement with the company in July 2008. It was anticipated at the time that the funding process would commence shortly thereafter. Due to unanticipated delays that were beyond the company's control, the placement agent agreement was not signed until February 2, 2009.

Terms of the exclusive placement agreement consisted of financing a $500,000 bridge loan offered to accredited investors that was to provide the Company with operating capital. The term of this best efforts financing was 180 days with an option to lengthen the term an additional 90 days. It was expected that a second stage of financing would occur with CGR that was contingent upon (1) the successful completion of the minimum raise of $75,000 in stage one and (2) the execution of a subsequent agreement between Salon City and CGR (and affiliated entities) that was expected to raise up to $2 million and would have featured secured financing from accredited institutional investors by and through purchased memberships in the Salon City LIBAC Fund, LLC. There was no guarantee that the second stage financing would have occurred without the satisfaction of those items noted above.

Steven G. Casciola, SCI's President and CEO, stated, "The Company is disappointed to say the least. It's now time to put this past nine months behind us and move on. We look forward to coming up with realistic and achievable funding solutions for moving our company ahead."
