LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - WorldVest Equity, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WVVEF) ("WorldVest"), a global merchant bank, has acquired the corporate finance operations of Corporate Capital Group, LLC ("CCG"). CCG's corporate finance group has specialized in capital raising transactions for both public and private companies, allowing its clientele to execute on an organic growth strategy or grow via acquisitions. Over its 17-year history, this group completed over $2 billion worth of transactions across approximately 40 industries and has demonstrated an ability to provide innovative solutions to complex capital issues.

This strategic acquisition has brought to WorldVest all key personnel, operations, infrastructure, and resources related to CCG's corporate finance group. Senior industry executives Garry Michael Kann and Susan Goodell will continue as Managing Directors of the newly formed WorldVest Corporate Finance Division. The addition of corporate finance provides WorldVest greatly enhanced capital raising ability and the flexibility to effectively finance a wide variety of transactions, often through multiple sources simultaneously.

In addition to supporting the internal Merchant Banking transactions completed by its Equity Investment Division, WorldVest looks to continue the growth of its external client companies by offering traditional fee based investment banking and advisory services including: M&A Advisory, Leveraged / Management Buyouts, Corporate Recapitalizations, Debt & Equity Private Placements, and Asset-based Lending Facilities.
