Addresses Capitalizing on the Mortgage and Housing Market Slowdown

    Consolidation in mortgage market presents significant opportunities as
    both mortgage lenders and brokers search for ways to stay viable, seeking
    alternative sources of revenue and increased reduction of overhead

    NEW YORK, TORONTO, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - Holdings Inc.
(OTCBB: MBKR - News), one of North America's fastest-growing mortgage
brokerage firms, stated today that it believes its business model of
consolidating small and medium sized enterprise (SME) mortgage brokerages will
prosper even within a turbulent mortgage and housing market. "Recent reports
of a slow-down in the mortgage and housing market due to over-inflated home
prices, rising interest rates and sub-prime weaknesses present considerable
opportunities for escalating the pace of growth for our company,' says Alex
Haditaghi CEO of
    "With a declining mortgage origination pipeline and tighter margins, the
over 40,000 SME mortgage brokerages will seek cost and technology advantages
so they can survive the slowdown and re-evaluations in the lending and housing
markets," states Mr. Haditaghi. Haditaghi continued by stating that "our
consolidation model addresses long standing mortgage industry issues and
provides both short and long-term opportunities for its members."
    The paradigm allows for its mortgage brokers to
prosper even during a down cycle of the housing and mortgage market in the
following ways:

    -   Mortgage Brokerages will reduce their overhead and fixed cost by
        joining; by leveraging its shared services
        environment for accounting, payroll, compliance, human resources,
        technology, marketing, and loan processing.
    -   Branding under the banner will turn these
        companies into one stronger, leaner, and highly efficient operating
        entity that can better compete with nationwide originators in the
        industry under one recognizable brand.
    -   Consolidation of the books of business from mortgage originators will
        enable to better leverage with lenders for
        revenue and rate discretion, through the pooling of origination
        volumes and control over channeling of mortgage volume.
    - lead generation system, national brand and
        technology platform will allow SME brokers to acquire new customers,
        better serve their current customers by focusing on sales, and
        scalability through the reduction of back office responsibilities.
    -   By concentrating on sales and marketing on their business and equity
        ownership participation, these SME brokerages will be able to hire,
        train and retain more loan officers and expand their business.

    Mr. Haditaghi commented: "We believe that the challenges facing the
industry should ultimately benefit as the mortgage
brokering and lending industry continues to consolidate. While we are
certainly excited with the current and future growth and execution of our
business plan, our executive team remains very much focused towards our goal
of becoming one of North America's largest and most respected mortgage
brokerage firm."
