Ventures-National Inc. Announces Oblio Telecom, Inc. Unit's Rapid Expansion of Bravo Distributor Network

Oblio Telecom Signs 18 New National Distributors of BRAVO Branded Handsets

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2005 -- Ventures-National Inc. DBA Titan General Holdings Inc. ("Titan") (OTC BB: TTGH) announced that its Oblio Telecom, Inc. unit ("Oblio") recently added 18 new national distributors of its BRAVO branded handsets.

Since the recent introduction of BRAVO Cellular, interest by national distributors in the BRAVO products has been brisk. The addition of these new distributors builds upon Oblio's existing distribution channels that include an estimated 60,000 retail locations across America. Oblio sells BRAVO as a private label service to end customers supported by its distribution channels and those of established cellular retailers.

"Already established as one of the nation's largest distributors of international pre-paid calling cards, the strong interest by new distributors in BRAVO Cellular is another indicator of the quality of our product offering," said Sammy Jibrin, CEO of Oblio.

"BRAVO enjoys many advantages in the pre-paid cellular market," said Bill Streidl, Executive Vice President of Oblio, "New distributors are joining the Oblio family given the strength of the BRAVO program. We are pleased with these results."

"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."

Oblio estimates it will add 250,000 recurring new customers within one year of the new product introduction. The annualized revenue from these new customers is expected to exceed $100M.
