Tougi Reaches Significant Growth Milestone of Over 1,000 Manufacturers

PORTLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- Nettel Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: NTTL) today announced Tougi Reaches Significant Growth Milestone of Over 1,000 Manufacturers.

Bolstered by the magnitude of responses to its unique global clearinghouse, Tougi is taking steps to prepare for the anticipated revenue growth resulting from sales of its online products.

Our customer base is growing rapidly, but with over 1,000 manufacturers and 50,000 products listed, we have not even scratched the surface. In order to maximize the coordination of the volume of orders, the expansion will occur in two major phases. Phase one will focus on developing relationships with key manufacturers, while the second objective is to increase the number of wholesale buyers. Nettel and Tougi management believe that significant solid results should be expected by third quarter 2007.

Tougi sales teams have completed and shipped dozens of small orders while working with large wholesale buyers on significantly larger ones. On average, we have been receiving 12-13 new order inquiries each day. Small orders take 5-7 days to complete while larger orders can take 3-4 weeks. The majority of the larger orders will be repeat orders. Tougi is preparing for additional growth and has recently added an additional 11 sales and support personnel to better serve its current and future customers.

As reported in a previous press release, feedback from the Tougi private label program has been overwhelmingly positive. We have seen an increase in requests for information to private label many products. The benefit to Tougi of having Tougi branded products is tremendous. Tougi doesn't have to purchase or stock any inventory in advance. Once the wholesaler pays for his order, Tougi will place the order with the manufacturer for that shipment and the manufacturer will put the Tougi label on his product and ship it to the buyer. Tougi is moving forward with confidence. As more wholesalers take advantage of this win/win relationship, we expect to spread the Tougi Brand into retail stores worldwide.
