Amstar Financial Holdings to Close Amstar Mortgage Corporation Unit.

HOUSTON -- Amstar Financial Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:AFLH) announces that it will transition operations of its mortgage banking subsidiary Amstar Mortgage Corporation. Amstar Mortgage Corporation has agreed in principal to relinquish managerial control of the affiliated branches to The Money Store. These branches and employees will then be offered employment by The Money Store. Amstar Mortgage's operations will then be discontinued on or about December 15, 2007. Amstar Mortgage Corporation expects to honor its lender commitments until this date.

This decision was based primarily upon four factors: the current mortgage market conditions, the increased unpaid liability created by former unprofitable branch offices, the cost to defend several mostly frivolous lawsuits, and seemingly stable lenders unable or unwilling to honor contract commitments with Amstar Mortgage. This deal will allow all branch offices and branch employees to continue with a strong viable company, as well as stop any additional liability to AFLH.

Amstar Financial Holdings, Inc. will continue efforts and raise capital for operations for its other subsidiaries. Once capital is procured, AFLH will focus its resources on Homes Opportunity, LLC and Amstar Guaranty Agency, Inc. its other subsidiaries. If financing is obtained, Homes Opportunity, LLC will concentrate efforts on purchasing bank foreclosures at a steep discount, while Amstar Guaranty Agency, Inc. will pursue providing insurance products through existing relationships. Both of these Amstar Financial companies are in their early stages of development and therefore may take some time before Amstar Financial may potentially show a significant profit. All operations of AFLH will be suspended on or about December 15, 2007 unless adequate financing can be obtained for these subsidiaries. We are very saddened to make this move but are hopeful that these other subsidiaries of AFLH can become viable.

Due to the closure of Amstar Mortgage Corporation, Amstar Financial Holdings, Inc. will not be posting further financial statements on until further notice. Additionally, AFLH will cease work on filings to become a fully reporting company with the SEC at this time.
