American Fire Retardant Corp. Announces Plans to Repurchase Stock.

Business Editors

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 30, 2002

American Fire Retardant Corp. (OTCBB:AMFR), a fire protection company that specializes in fire prevention and fire containment, today announced that the company's board of directors has approved a plan to repurchase up to five million shares of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the company in open market purchases.

"We feel that because of current market conditions, coupled with the fact that management strongly believes that AMFR shares are trading well below current and future values, it is in the best interest of the company to begin repurchasing shares in the open market," stated American Fire Retardant Corp. CEO Raoul L. Carroll.

It is anticipated that the company will complete this buyback within the next 12 months as cash flow permits. The repurchases may be made from time to time in open-market transactions, or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to the availability of shares.
