U.S. Dry Cleaning Closes on $4 Million of a Total $7.5 Million Initial Public Offering to Advance First Consolidation Program in the Industry

PALM SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - U.S. Dry Cleaning Corporation ("USDC"), a first mover in consolidating the U.S. dry cleaning industry, announced today that it has closed on $4 million of a maximum $7.5 million initial public offering. The money will be used to advance USDC's plan to be the first major consolidator of leading dry cleaning businesses nationwide.

The underwriter for the offering is US EURO Securities, Inc., a private global investment bank headquartered in Florida.

USDC's total public offering comprises 3,000,000 units. Each unit is priced at $2.50 and consists of one share of common stock and one redeemable warrant to purchase one share of common stock.

Robert Y. Lee, CEO, Director and co-founder of USDC, said, "We are very excited to offer the first IPO and become the first national consolidator in the dry cleaning industry. As a growing operator, we seek to create value through economies of scale, best practices, access to capital markets and introduction of management experience not typically seen in the industry. These funds will help us to rapidly advance our plan to become a dominant force in a previously fragmented sector."

Michael Roy Fugler, Chairman of US EURO Securities, stated, "We are very pleased to help USDC implement its consolidation of the U.S. dry cleaning industry. Since December 2005, USDC has acquired three dry cleaning businesses in California and Hawaii. This financing launches USDC's larger business plan to acquire high-quality operations in strategic geographic regions of the U.S."

About U.S. Dry Cleaning Corporation

U.S. Dry Cleaning Corporation is a classic, fundamental, early-stage consolidator. On December 30, 2005, USDC merged with a public corporation to become the first public operator of dry cleaning stores in America. Over the last year and half, USDC has completed acquisitions in Hawaii and California with combined annual revenues of over $9 million. USDC combines a management team with extensive experience in retail consolidations and dry cleaning operations, with a proven operating model.

USDC intends to rapidly acquire profitable, positive cash flow operations at accretive valuations. Each acquisition target is expected to be self-sufficient and senior management is expected to remain in place to ease the assimilation. USDC is focused on acquiring businesses that hold a leading share in their individual markets.

USDC management believes that the current absence of extensive competition to acquire the larger dominant operators will change radically as the industry consolidates. Management believes that the greatest value achieved in any consolidation occurs during the earliest phases and intends to grow as rapidly as possible.
