Tire International Engages Stone & Youngberg as Investment Banker for Debt Financing

Company Plans Tire Recycling and Rubber Manufacturing Facility in U.S.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Tire International Environmental Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: TRIE), an emerging tire recycling and finished consumer and industrial product company, announced today that it has engaged Stone & Youngberg, LLC, of New York for assistance in structuring and marketing a debt offering as part of its project financing.

The project financing will allow the company to establish U.S. facilities to recycle tires and manufacture recycled rubber products currently produced in China for consumer and industrial use throughout North America. The proposed debt financing would provide $20 million of net proceeds to acquire, equip and operate the new facilities.

Tire International announced in January that it has agreed to acquire Tonmik Import Export Solutions, Inc., a Montreal-based distributor of recycled rubber products that are currently manufactured at its facilities in China. The company intends to develop a fully integrated scrap-tire-to-finished-product tire recycling business in the United States.

Tire International CEO, Anthony Care, said, "This project financing paves the way for us to take the next major step in transforming our company into a sizable and profitable tire recycling and finished products company. We are excited about the prospect of manufacturing finished products here in the U.S. in a way that will give us more control over our business and enable us to better serve our big box and other customers."
