Ventures-National Inc. Announces Oblio Telecom, Inc. Unit's First Shipment of Bravo Handsets

Oblio Telecom Begins Fulfillment and Activation of BRAVO Handsets

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 30, 2005 -- Ventures-National Inc. DBA Titan General Holdings Inc. ("Titan") (OTC BB: TTGH) announced that its Oblio Telecom, Inc. unit ("Oblio") today completed its first shipment of BRAVO branded handsets.

Last month Titan announced that its Oblio unit completed an agreement with a tier-one communications provider wherein Oblio became a mobile virtual network operator or "MVNO." As an MVNO, recently Oblio launched its new wireless product line branded BRAVO Cellular ("BRAVO"). Oblio sells BRAVO as a private label service to end customers supported by its distribution channels and those of established cellular retailers.

"As one of the nation's largest distributors of international pre-paid calling cards, completing our first shipment of BRAVO branded handsets is another milestone in our history," said Sammy Jibrin, CEO of Oblio.

"BRAVO enjoys many advantages in the pre-paid cellular market," said Bill Streidl, Director of Sales and Marketing at Oblio. "The BRAVO program is truly prepaid, easy to activate, easy to maintain and offers international direct dialing at rates which rival pre-paid calling cards."

Oblio is selling BRAVO nationwide through its distribution channels that include over 60,000 retail locations across America.

"As we have historically delivered with our Oblio pre-paid calling card brands, BRAVO consumers receive exactly what we promise to deliver and with full disclosure of all applicable costs," said Sammy Jibrin, CEO of Oblio. "BRAVO is our latest product innovation responding to the needs and demands of our customers."
