The Small Business Company, (symbol SBCO.PK) Announces Plans to File SEC Form N-2, Enabling SBCO to Operate as a Business Development Company

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - The Small Business Company (PINKSHEETS: SBCO) has announced plans to file SEC Form N-2 enabling SBCO to operate as a Business Development Company. Chairwoman Karen Person stated that "the filing of the N-2 will provide SBCO with the tools needed under the U.S. Investment Act of 1940 to become a publicly traded Venture Capital Firm, which will ensure our ability to successfully produce revenues and provide for shareholder equity." SBCO recently filed a name change with the state of Delaware to Select Business and Corporation Opportunities, Inc. Ms. Person also states that talks were underway with companies in various industry sectors to join the SBCO family. Ms. Person went on to say "I love the diversity that these companies will provide SBCO. I truly believe that in order for companies to succeed in the modern landscape, they require the right leadership and access to capital to enable growth and compete in the global marketplace. Leadership and capital are precisely the key advantages SBCO companies will have as they compete in these challenged economies."

SBCO will have a percentage interest in the chosen companies. Several companies have already been accepted based on their anticipated and actual revenues to date, along with their various Letters of Intent and PO's.

Shareholders seek more than innovation; they seek low-risk growth. SBCO's asset diversification model is among the best insulators to reduce risk. SBCO expects to experience significant growth through acquisition as well as internal growth in 2012. The company is also in the process of rebuilding our web site. We expect to have our site built and active within the next two weeks. Ms. Person added, "I would like our investors to know that the company has undergone a name change having filed an amendment with the Division of Corporations, Delaware, and further having filed the necessary forms with FINRA. We expect to be trading under our new name with the same symbol, Select Business and Corporation Opportunities Inc., once FINRA finishes its process." In addition, "SBCO is working on achieving a Current Status on the OTC Pink Sheets."

Investors can hear more about SBCO by listening to Ms. Person and Simon Edwards, CEO of Astra Jet of which SBCO owns 19%. Further funding will be made available as required for future expansions into key markets, this evening, as the featured guests in an exclusive live interview tonight at 8pm EST.
