SBCO Announces Revenues for Portfolio Companies

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - The Small Business Company, (PINKSHEETS: SBCO)

Astra Jet, a portfolio company of which SBCO owns 19%, recently announced that it will begin its operations debt free and expects to generate $16M in revenues during its first summer of operations.

In addition, Renaissance Entertainment & Media Group, LLC, another portfolio company, has estimated that the revenues generated from the distribution of the documentary feature film JULY MOON, to be released on the 43rd anniversary of man's first steps on the moon, into movie theaters this summer, will produce revenues between three to seven million, representing an additional revenue stream for SBCO. We are excited about this film as it represents a vital piece of our nation's history. The film will also be distributed through educational and various historical venues, providing additional revenue through licensing agreements for many years.

Renaissance has also added three feature films and two theatrical productions to its production slate.

With the addition of these properties, Renaissance is strategically positioned to become a major presence in the Independent Film production arena.
