About XL TechGroup

XL TechGroup identifies unmet market needs in the Biotech, Ecotech and Medtech
sectors and then systematically creates and develops successful disruptive
technology businesses to exploit these needs.  The Company has developed a
unique proven method to rapidly bring companies from inception to liquidity,
matching unexploited IP from a group of technology partners to the identified
unmet market need.  XL TechGroup employs its own predictive algorithm to ensure
the market will rapidly adopt the identified solution and then moves to scale
the company specifically created to exploit the opportunity.

Before forming XL TechGroup, the management team created substantial value for
shareholders over a twelve year period, successfully exiting six technology
businesses at an average market valuation of approximately US$500 million.

The listing of the first company created under the XL TechGroup banner, AgCert
International, continues to validate the systematic approach to value creation.

•         AgCert International was created by XL TechGroup in May 2002 and is a
global leader in the production and sale of agriculturally derived greenhouse
gas emission reductions, with business in Europe, Asia, North America and South
America.  AgCert was listed on the London Stock Exchange on 8th June 2005 with
an initial market cap of approximately £215 million.  XL TechGroup maintains a
27.2% interest in AgCert.

The second and third companies in the new generation of XL TechGroup businesses

•         TyraTech LLC, which was created by XL TechGroup in July 2004, is
developing a new class of highly effective, non-toxic pesticides using cloned
insect chemoreceptors, based on approved, safe, natural oils.  Its development
is progressing rapidly and TyraTech, which is 66.7% owned by XL TechGroup, is
expected to be earning its first revenues by the end of 2005.

•         DxTech LLC was created by XL TechGroup in July 2005, and is developing
a unique micro-fluidic platform that replaces essentially all biological tests
currently performed at reference laboratories with a fully-automated,
point-of-care device.  This technology has applications in significantly
lowering costs and increasing efficiency for major pharmaceutical companies in
their clinical trials, the provision of diagnostics in developing countries and
delivering a new revenue stream for doctors in the USA.  DxTech is currently
100% owned by XL TechGroup.

XL TechGroup has several other opportunities already at an advanced stage in its
business creation pipeline.
