Virtual Media Holdings: Pending Merger With Internet Technology Company

With Plans to Expand Online Products to Over 100 Million, VMH Management Completes Steps to Close Merger With Strategic Partner

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 21, 2007 -- Jim Carroll, president of Virtual Media Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: VMHIF), is pleased to announce that our newly invigorated management and technology team is working on a myriad of levels to increase shareholder value. The new management team were investors before taking on leadership responsibilities and hold the same concerns of all VMHIF shareholders. They do not intend on authorizing any further unnecessary issuance of shares except for mergers or acquisitions that improve the overall structure of the company.

The Information Technology Team, John Cornelius and Gary Soloman (serving until the end of 2011), were brought on for both their technical and marketing/sales configuration abilities. Their successful development of the Blackbird.Net Derivative Trading Platform more than exhibits the team's capabilities.


As part of current planning, Virtual Media Holdings is strengthening both fiduciary and sales relationships with its enterprise partners such as and DVD Legacy to name a few, as well as increasing its presence with search engine giant As VMH expands into a comprehensive "one stop" comparative marketplace it will offer items as varied as low end to high end, brand name, individual sales, used items and factory direct in a manner that allows users to get the best price across retail partners in real time. The site currently has in excess of 5 million unique offerings with a goal of reaching 100 million within 12 months as the scope of products offered expands. With this strategic move VMH is poised to become a major Internet destination.


The current Management is focused on two priorities, building on proven profit centers and investing in development that will drive future revenues. Previous management was able to develop various sales models that produced considerable revenue. Media sales in 2005 were 3.6 million, and then the previous management transitioned to media rentals losing focus on other profit centers, revenues dropped off to 1 million in 2006. Unfortunately, neither of these revenue-producing models were fully pursued. The Company's focus is now placed on growing revenues by expanding its business model, which could become the new standard for handling Internet sales and marketing.

Management is moving forward on a comprehensive internal investigative audit. This will look at possible illegal issuances as well as overall share structure as part of clarifying true investor value. The company is also transitioning from a 20F yearly reporting to a more transparent 10K quarterly reporting schedule as a means of furthering their devotion to shareholder value.


VMH is positioning itself to take advantage of the explosive growth of online commerce. The Dept. of Commerce data shows double-digit growth in eCommerce revenue for 2006, with a total of $108 Billion growing 23% over 2005, with 2007 totals estimated at $130 Billion. There are current discussions of merging with an Internet technology partner that can thrust VMH forward growing sales exponentially, while also increasing traffic. While these visionary steps are in their earliest stages they do serve the purpose of maximizing future plans.
