developers of the SCUDERI™ Split-Cycle Engine technology, today announced it
has signed a four-year agreement with Tokyo-based Sojitz Marine Engineering
Corp. (SOMEC) for exclusive representation in the shipbuilding and marine
transportation markets in Korea and Japan. This represents Scuderi Group's
continued growth in Asia and further progress in the development and
commercialization of the Scuderi technology.

According to the agreement, SOMEC will assist the Scuderi Group in promoting,
selling, and licensing the patented engine technology to the manufacturers in
those regions. SOMEC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sojitz Corporation, one
of the largest Japanese trading companies with extensive expertise and reach

"Forming a relationship with Scuderi Group will positively enhance SOMEC's
offering into the marine industry in this region," said Mr. Kazushi Konishi,
executive officer of SOMEC. "We are excited to be able to represent such
innovative and ground-breaking technology. We look forward to working with
Scuderi Group to advance their reach into Asia."

Sal Scuderi, president of Scuderi Group said: "The new generation of vessels
being launched opens up a lot of potential for the Scuderi technology as
environmental regulations and the rise of fuel costs has made us a very
compelling alternative to the conventional internal combustion engine. Our
partnership with SOMEC makes us a stronger company and accelerates the
proliferation of the Scuderi Engine."

The Scuderi Engine's Split-Cycle design separates the compression stroke from
the combustion/power stroke to achieve world-class efficiency levels without
compromising power. In addition, many advanced features are currently being
developed, including a compressed air energy storage capability that can be
used as an air-hybrid for mobile applications and energy storage for electric
power generation.
