H4O, Inc. Wins Finalist Spot in ''Red Herring 100 Asia'' Awards 2007



    Award Recognizes the 100 "Most Promising" Private Technology Ventures
Driving the Future of Technology in the Asia-Pacific Region

    TOKYO, August 22 /CNW/ - H4O(R) Inc. ("H4O") a pioneer in the development
of Japanese intellectual property rights with the first of our consumer
beverages (H4O -600mV is the first selective and potent antioxidant for
wellness drinks), pet drinking water (H4O PET Science Water) and medical
products (H4O HYDRO BATH) developed from a breakthrough hydrogen fuel cell
discovery. H4O announces it has been selected as a finalist for the
prestigious Red Herring 100 Asia 2007 awards. H4O will be interviewed and
present at the event in Hong Kong on August 29-31.

    Published findings in Nature Medicine in 2007 showed that hydrogen gas
selectively protects against the most cytotoxic and reactive free radicals.
Hydrogen is the tiniest molecule; thus, it has the potential to penetrate
cells, tissues, blood vessels and even pass through the blood brain barrier.

    "The 200 finalists we selected from across 16 countries and regions are
all excellent contenders," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring.
"They are exceptional companies who thrive on innovation and strongly define
the important role of technology in Asia's economy and throughout the world."

    "Being selected as a finalist is a tribute to the efforts of our team and
the trust of our customers and the commitment of our investors, all of which
has made our success possible," said Joseph Baxter, H4O CBO. "This award is an
important validation of our global business potential as we prepare for an IPO
later this year overseas and expand our business globally in the search for EU
and USA partners," he added.
