Voyant Management Increases Stake in Company by Exchanging More Debt for Equity

Latest Transaction Is the Second Voluntary Swap of Debt for Equity by Management Team

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - Voyant International Corporation (OTCBB: VOYT), a diversified media and technology holding company dedicated to improving the quality of the digital world for both businesses and consumers, announced that the members of its senior management team have once again agreed to convert all of the deferred pay owed to them by the company into convertible preferred stock.

The senior officers of the company have voluntarily exchanged all debt from accrued wages owed to these officers for Voyant preferred stock. "As a sign of our confidence in Voyant, our senior management team has been taking only a fraction of their full salaries in recent months," explained Mark Laisure, Voyant's executive chairman of the board. "These officers have now elected to transfer the balance of their accrued wages into equity, reprising a similar debt-for-equity swap that occurred in December 2007."

Voyant is a holding company addressing new, large markets at the intersection of digital content and technology. The company seeks to leverage its significant collection of intellectual property and know-how to create value for its shareholders through compelling business opportunities. The company's business units are currently active in the fields of (a) next-generation white-space radios (WSR), (b) Internet data transfer acceleration, (c) commercial aviation broadband connectivity and (d) original media content creation and aggregation.

"We believe that Voyant is in an excellent position to monetize the intersection between digital content and technology," added CEO Dana Waldman. "We are passionate about what we are doing here and the opportunities and value that Voyant is creating. This debt-for-equity swap is a chance for our management team to further participate in the anticipated success of our company and align ourselves with the interests of our shareholders, while also reducing the liabilities on Voyant's balance sheet."
