Trustcash Holdings, Inc. Shareholder Update

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - TRUSTCASH HOLDINGS, INC. ("TRUSTCASH") (OTCBB: TCHH) announced today that: (A) it has informed Paivis, Corp ("Paivis") (PINKSHEETS: PAVC) that it would prefer acquiring control of Paivis through a Dutch Auction and (B) both parties have agreed to extend the closing date of the Merger Agreement to correspond with a financing.

Trustcash has confirmed that financings offered to date are being reviewed, however we have not accepted any proposal with the exception of that received from Mistral Ventures, Inc.

Kent Carasquero comments, "We still believe in combining the value of Trustcash, Paivis, Detroit Phone Cards Inc. and AAAA Media Services, Ltd. and are very optimistic with respect to finding a capable financial partner. However we must be prudent when considering the best use of any funds to be raised."

Dutch Auction example- Sourced from Wikipedia

A Dutch Auction share repurchase allows firms an alternative to the fixed price tender offer when executing a tender offer share repurchase. The first firm to utilize the Dutch Auction was Todd Shipyards. A Dutch Auction offer specifies a price range within which the shares will ultimately be purchased. Shareholders are invited to tender their stock, if they desire, at any price within the stated range. The firm then compiles these responses, creating a supply curve for the stock.

The purchase price is the lowest price that allows the firm to buy the number of shares sought in the offer, and the firm pays that price to all investors who tendered at or below that price. If the number of shares tendered exceeds the number sought, then the company purchases less than all shares tendered at or below the purchase price on a pro rata basis to all who tendered at or below the purchase price. If too few shares are tendered, then the firm either cancels the offer (provided it had been made conditional on a minimum acceptance), or it buys back all tendered shares at the maximum price.

A variation on the Dutch Auction, Open IPO, was used on the IPO for Google stock.
