In addition, effective with the opening of trading today, the Company's new trading symbol on the OTC Bulletin Board is ARGA.

Also effective today, Auriga's new Cusip number is 05155L 10 5.

Prior to the reverse split the Company had approximately 532 million shares of common stock outstanding (including shares of common stock then issuable upon conversion of the Company's preferred stock, all of which shares automatically converted as a result of the reverse split), and, after taking into account the 1-for-15 reverse split, currently has approximately 35.5 million shares of common stock outstanding.

Commenting on these transactions, Mr. Philip Pesin, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to have finalized the change of our name and excited to commence trading under our new ticker symbol, which is a more accurate reflection of the name of our operating company. We also hope that the reverse stock split will facilitate trading in our shares."
