Stock Market Solutions, Inc. and Texas Prototypes, Inc. Announce Merger

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 20, 2005 -- On June 14, 2005, Stock Market Solutions, Inc. (OTC BB: SMKT) (the "Company"), and its wholly owned subsidiary entered into a definitive Agreement and Plan of Merger with Texas Prototypes, Inc. ("TXP").

Pending stockholder and shareholder approval, the Company will issue 94.7% of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock for all outstanding shares of TXP in a stock for stock transaction. As a result of the Merger Agreement, the transaction will be treated for accounting purposes as a reverse merger by the accounting acquirer (TXP). The existing security holders of the Company will hold the remaining 5.3% of the Company's shares of common stock at closing.

Following the closing of the Merger Agreement, the Company will merge with TXP, change its name to TXP Corporation and reincorporate in Delaware.

TXP's Chief Executive Officer, Michael C. Shores, will assume leadership of the Company. The Company will trade on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) under a new ticker symbol to be determined.

The Merger Agreement also contemplates that, concurrent with the closing of the transaction, the Board of Directors of the Company shall resign and the vacancies created thereby shall be filled with the appointees of the current TXP shareholders and/or officers who shall fill such posts until the next annual election of directors and all current officers of the Company shall resign from their positions with the Company, with new officers to be appointed by the new Board members.

After closing, the Company's primary business model will focus on the pre-manufacturing services segment of the electronics industry supporting original equipment manufacturers, original design manufacturers, contract manufacturers and new technology innovators.

Richard Smitten, the president of SMKT, said today: "The Company believes TXP has tremendous potential and is well positioned in what can be called a new high-tech market sector. TXP has helped launch new products into the marketplace in the areas of consumer, medical, military, networking and telecommunications for their Fortune 500 and large multi-national clients. This new model saves these companies substantial amounts of money that they would normally spend in product development."
