Paintball LLC has acquired both the National Professional Paintball League
(NPPL) and the Xtreme Paintball Sports League (XPSL), the leading national
and regional paintball tournament operators in the United States. Shawn
Walker, current owner and President of XPSL, will be President of Pacific

Mr. Walker stated: “We are very excited to bring a level of professionalism,
consistency and coordination to all tournament and league events from the
national to the regional and to the local level. With the financial backing
of Pacific Merchant Capital, we intend to bring significant investment to
upgrade all aspects of our product offering. This will bring substantial
value to our players, sponsors and spectators.”

“The experienced professionals at Pacific Merchant Capital have a long list
of successes to their credit and are dedicated to add another success through
the paintball industry. The combination of the largest regional league with
the most recognized national level league is a perfect alignment of goals to
achieve optimum success.”

Mr. Walker has managed the XPSL tournament series for the past 3 years and
has worked with numerous paintball tournaments across the US. He has been
involved in all aspects of the paintball industry for the past 15 years, and
is co-host and consultant for the television show Inside Paintball, broadcast
on the Outdoor Channel.

Bart Walkerdine, current CEO of NPPL and Pure Promotions, will consult for
the league and tournament series. Mr. Walkerdine stated: “We have been
approached by many people over the last several years seeking to become
involved in the NPPL. Pacific Paintball is the first group to come along
which combines significant paintball industry experience, meaningful growth
capital and a dedicated focus to league and tournament operations.” Camille
Baker, Director of Marketing for the NPPL, will be a key executive of Pacific

The National Professional Paintball League (NPPL) has continually set the
standard for high quality tournaments. Its innovations include: use of
specialty turf, holding events at large well known arenas like Raymond James
Stadium and Gillette Stadium, and offering a professional referee
organization. The first NPPL event of the 2007 season, at Huntington Beach,
California on March 23rd-25th, will feature over 200 teams hitting the beach
for an unprecedented fifth straight year. Registration opens January 29th and
more information can be found at

Chuck Hendsch, former President and owner of NPPL, will serve on an advisory
board to the NPPL. Mr. Hendsch stated: “I have known Shawn Walker and the
principals at Pacific Merchant Capital for over three years. They have been
interested in growing paintball participation and this provides a solid
platform as the largest and only independent paintball tournament and event
operation in the United States. Their efforts should help to grow overall
paintball participation as well as the number of core players in our sport.”

Xtreme Paintball Sports League (XPSL) is the largest regional event series in
the United States. In 2006, over 120 teams attended each event and thousands
of spectators continued to call the high quality, affordably priced circuit
home. The first XPSL tournament of the season is February 16th-18th at the
Kern County Fairgrounds in Bakersfield, California. Registration is now open
with more information available at

media companies, including the largest taxi top advertising company in the
United States which is currently an integral part of Clear Channel Communications’
outdoor division. In addition to Pacific Paintball, PMC is currently building
Brite Media Group, a leading alternative media business.

The NPPL's Mission is to be the World Wide Governing body of the sport of
paintball, to run and promote the highest quality events, to ensure safe,
fair, competitive play for members, teams and spectators, while showcasing
