TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER GRANTED AGAINST THE ACTAVA GROUP

 SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Triton Group Ltd. (AMEX: TGL) today announced that Judge Peter W. Bowie, United States Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of California, granted Triton's motion for a Temporary Restraining Order barring The Actava Group Inc. (NYSE: ACT) from enforcing the collateral maintenance (margin call) provisions of its approximately $32 million loan agreement with Actava. Triton Group currently faces margin calls of approximately $2.7 million under the current provisions of the loan agreement, resulting from declines in Actava's common share price during the past few weeks. The court set a hearing on Triton's application for a preliminary injunction for Aug. 10, 1993.
 Triton is currently Actava's largest stockholder. In addition to its stake in Actava, Triton owns majority interests in six subsidiaries with current annual revenues in excess of $200 million.
