Shareholders of Convergence Ethanol, Inc., Daniel K. Moscaritolo and Charles L. Christensen, Represented by Hale Lane, File Suit to Compel an Annual Meeting

THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Daniel K. Moscaritolo and Charles L. Christensen (the "Shareholders"), shareholders of Convergence Ethanol, Inc. (OTCBB: CETH) (the "Company"), today announced that they have taken action to compel the Company to hold an annual meeting of shareholders.

Despite clear provision in the bylaws that annual meetings are to be held on February 18 of each year, the Board of Directors of the Company has failed to call an annual meeting for the past three years, thus avoiding a shareholder vote on the election of directors. The current Board of Directors consists of only two directors, neither of whom has ever been elected or approved by shareholders of the Company. As of January 11, 2007, the Company has not delivered notice of an annual meeting for 2007, even though a written demand for a shareholder's meeting was sent by certified mail to the Company on December 30, 2006 by the Shareholders.

The Shareholders have filed an action in Nevada court on January 9, 2007 to compel the Company to hold an annual meeting of shareholders on or before February 18, 2007 in accordance with the Company's bylaws and Section 78.345 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.

CHRISTENSEN MAY SEEK TO SOLICIT PROXIES OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A GROUP THAT MAY SOLICIT PROXIES FROM THE SHAREHOLDERS OF CONVERGENCE ETHANOL, INC. FOR USE AT SUCH ANNUAL MEETING. IF THEY ELECT TO SOLICIT PROXIES FROM SHAREHOLDERS FOR USE AT AN ANNUAL MEETING, DANIEL K. MOSCARITOLO AND/OR CHARLES L. CHRISTENSEN WILL PREPARE AND FILE A PROXY STATEMENT WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION. SECURITY HOLDERS ARE ADVISED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT AND OTHER DOCUMENTS RELATED TO THE SOLICITATION OF PROXIES BY EITHER OF DANIEL K. MOSCARITOLO AND/OR CHARLES L. CHRISTENSEN FROM THE SHAREHOLDERS OF CONVERGENCE ETHANOL, INC. FOR USE AT ITS NEXT ANNUAL MEETING IF AND WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE, BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION, INCLUDING INFORMATION RELATING TO THE PARTICIPANTS IN SUCH PROXY SOLICITATION. IF AND WHEN COMPLETED, A DEFINITIVE PROXY STATEMENT AND A FORM OF PROXY WILL BE MAILED TO SHAREHOLDERS OF CONVERGENCE ETHANOL, INC. AND WILL BE AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE AT THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION'S WEBSITE AT HTTP://WWW.SEC.GOV.
