Budget Center Inc. focuses on delivering great value to their guests. Utilizing its websites, the Company will offer a balance of good, better and best products providing travel options for every budget. When shopping at any of Budget's URLs, visitors will discover they retain quality and receive value at budget prices. Budget Center Inc. has their headquarters in Henderson, Nevada.

Budget aims to grow profitably by catering to its ever-growing target market – budget category consumers worldwide. It is believed that under the current economic conditions, which are projected to last for the foreseeable future, budget brands in general will experience a significant increase in value.

Furthermore, the growing online travel market is projected to reach $140 billion by 2010. While the Company recognizes that this market will likely be adversely impacted by the current economic conditions, it also believes that businesses offering budget services stand to benefit from these same conditions.

Budget Center Inc.'s core strategy is to leverage the revenues accruing to their "budget" domain portfolio through relationships with the major, well-known, websites. This will provide the Company's "budget" on-line visitors with access to thousands of hotel rooms, airlines, cruises and related activities globally, without Budget Center incurring the expense of developing and maintaining these inventories.

Recently, Budget Center Inc. announced that the Company entered into a Development and Marketing Agreement for their www.budgetskiing.com domain. This is with former world freestyle champion Lauralee Bowie and her company, Lauralee Bowie Ski Adventures located in Vancouver, British Columbia, the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

They expect this project to produce approximately 570,000 cubic feet per day or approximately 100 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Becomes Key Link to New Market

Consorteum Holdings Inc., a Canadian based provider of creative financial transaction solutions, sees a clear and unmet need in the financial transaction market which it has positioned itself to fill.

Financial processors essentially just settle credit, debit, and ATM transactions on behalf of their own network of merchants and associated financial institutions. However, they also possess the infrastructure and client base to provide a number of additional products and services, which they could do if they formed partnership agreements with organizations that supply value-added services in the card/payment industries.

In spite of this opportunity, today’s processors do not seem to have the time, expertise, or bandwidth to research or implement all of the new potential products and services they could make available to their clients, such as new card solutions, payment products (cell phones, RFID, etc.).

Consorteum is taking the lead in addressing this significant market, and has already developed the key relationships with service and product providers to unite them with suitable end-users and bring about these innovative processing solutions.

• Consorteum has formed solid relationships with the processors, and MasterCard International, to offer such solutions, focusing mainly on guaranteed card programs and other new transaction initiatives.
• Consorteum also has relationships with critical product suppliers, to provide the best technologies for the need.
• Consorteum has the processing and card industry familiarity required to do the associated consulting and project management, ensuring that the client and processor are abiding by card industry rules.
• Consorteum has the expertise necessary for the successful deployment, management, and scale-up of large financial processing initiatives.
• Consorteum has negotiated wholesale pricing for low transaction rates, covering all card programs that can be used for benefit payments, payroll, and check cashing, plus other transaction solutions.
• Consorteum is well positioned to offer all of these services on a worldwide basis.

Each of the Tianjin stores offers more than 1,500 products and has achieved average revenue of $429 per store per day. The company’s new Changchun City-based store offers more than 3,000 products with a local customer population of 27,000 and average revenue of $429 per day.

The new stores bring the company’s total count to 96 stores, including 22 franchisees, and broaden its product portfolio, which includes 98 percent of the items listed on the recently issued Essential Drug List (EDL) in China.

Through the addition of the new stores and correlating expanded marketing activities, the new stores and retail drug operations contributed to a 30 percent increase in revenues for 2009. The new stores also improved the company’s 2009 gross profit, which was $15.2 million, and gross margin of 32.6 percent, up from $11.9 million in gross profit and gross margin of 20.1 percent reported for 2008.

Tefron Ltd.’s (TFRFF) Lenders Agree to Continue and Expand Financing

Israeli company Tefron manufactures boutique-quality everyday seamless intimate apparel, active wear and swim wear sold throughout the world by name-brand marketers such as Calvin Klein, Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Patagonia, Reebok, Banana Republic and the Gap. The company’s innovative product line includes tank tops, boxers, leggings, crop, T-shirts, nightwear and bodysuits.

The company announced yesterday that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with its principal lenders to continue and expand its line of credit. The memorandum of understanding ensures the continuation of the existing $28.95 million line of credit and adds an additional $1.8 million for a total credit line of $30.75 million. The memorandum of understanding also calls for the addition of a minimum of $4 million in equity investment. Major shareholders have already committed to make this investment at an upcoming rights offering.

The memorandum, signed on January 6th with Bank Leumi le-Israel Ltd., Bank Discount le-Israel Ltd. and Bank Hapoalim Ltd., effectively ended a month of financial uncertainty for Tefron. The chairman of Tefron, Jacob Gelbard, commented on reaching an agreement with the banks, “With the signing of the memorandum of understanding, we have removed the last element of doubt about Tefron’s financial picture.”

Mr. Gelbard continued, “The successful resolution of our financial challenges allows Tefron to focus on the most urgent work: executing our turnaround plan and meeting customer needs with superior products. The continued loyalty and support of those customers and our industry-leading technology and innovation were clearly key in reaching this agreement with our financial partners.”
