First Toronto IPO of Q4, 2008 launches on Frankfurt stock exchange today

    TORONTO, Oct. 21 /CNW/ - RCT Global Networks Inc (FRANKFURT: 3RC)
launched its first public share offering on Germany's Frankfurt Over the
Counter Market ("FSE OTC") on Tuesday, October 21, 2008. Trading opened at
(euro)1.200 (One Euro, Twenty Cents) per share under the symbol 3RC. The
listing broker is 886AG, Frankfurt, Germany.
    In a storm of global economic turbulence, there is an island of
comparative serenity in Toronto. "We have the most recession resistant
business in Canada - installing phone, cable, Internet and security solutions
in the country's biggest market. Then we have the cream of the builders like
Tridel and all three major telecoms - Bell, Telus and Rogers as customers.
Finally Canada is the No. 1 economy of the G8 countries, no shaky bankers, no
sub-prime mortgages - and a solid government. What's not to like?" says Global
Networks Chairman and CEO Robert C. Tummonds.
    It's ironic that the GTA's leading telecom supplier has to go offshore to
find funding," says Global Networks President Vic Griffin. "Canadian banks are
not lending and the TSX has listing criteria the needs Blue Chip status.
Canadian investors can buy through their existing brokers and follow our
progress on our website - Right now we have nine
new large buildings and are adding at the rate of about one per week."
    "I'm the major shareholder and all my employees are shareholders as well.
I would expect our first stock buyers to be people who see our trucks on the
road every day hooking up buildings they know. There are hundreds of builders
in the GTA and the Golden Horseshoe and we are proud that our clients are the
cream of the crop. We're not the low cost supplier but our people don't leave
until all our customers' customers are happy. That buys them peace of mind -
and that's priceless, as they say," says Tummonds.
