SMC Recordings, Inc. to Effect Reverse Stock Split and Change Name to SMC Entertainment, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2011) - SMC Recordings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMCE), an independent Hip-Hop/Rap Label, today announced that its Board of Directors, pursuant to previously obtained stockholder authorization, approved a reverse split of its common stock at a ratio of 1 for 50, with a planned effective date of May 6, 2011, and announced the Company name change to SMC Entertainment, Inc.

Accordingly, as of the effective date, each 50 shares of issued and outstanding common stock and equivalents will be converted into one share of common stock. The Company's ticker symbol will be appended with a "D" to indicate the completion of the reverse stock split, and after a 20 trading-day period following effectiveness of the reverse split the ticker symbol will revert to "SMCE." The reverse stock split will become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada.

SMC Recordings' reverse stock split is intended to enhance investors' visibility into the Company's profitability on a per share basis. The Company also believes that a higher share price could broaden SMC Recordings' appeal to investors, in addition to reducing per share transaction fees and certain administrative costs.

SMC Recordings' stockholders will receive instructions from their broker or from the Company's transfer agent, West Coast Transfer, Inc. of San Diego, California, containing the appropriate reverse stock split procedures. All fractional stockholdings will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. As a result of the reverse stock split, the number of outstanding common shares will be reduced to approximately 1.6 million from the current amount 78.7 million. The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not affect any stockholder's ownership percentage of SMC Recordings' common shares (except to the extent that the reverse stock split will result in some of the stockholders receiving full shares in the rounding of fractional shares). Further information on the logistics regarding the reverse split can be obtained by contacting West Coast Transfer, Inc. shareholder services department at 629-664-4780
