Business Editors

TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 1, 2001

The Quantum Group Inc. (OTCBB:QTMG), Thursday announced that it is pursuing strategic alliances within the asphalt paving industry to leverage their presence in this growing industry.

"The Quantum Group is well positioned to address this opportunity, with our many years of experience and established presence in the crumb rubber industry. This expansion of our business plan is an important step forward in our strategy to strengthen our position in this market," commented Keith Fryer, president and chief operating officer.

"Recognizing a unique opportunity, we have restructured the company and focused our efforts within the recycled rubber market. The company and Modified Asphalt Technologies Inc. (MAT) have mutually agreed to rescind the MAT purchase agreement entered into in January, 2000.

"Quantum Group believes it is now positioned to acquire and develop technology driven products and services primarily related to waste tire and rubber recycling industries. We are currently in negotiations to acquire more advanced technologies to use in conjunction with strategic alliances," Fryer continued.

Quantum's intent is to establish itself as a leader in the worldwide environmental technology and crumb rubber modified asphalt paving arenas by expanding on its core activities to create compelling applications to generate demand for its products. Quantum continues to identify new technologies that may be synergistic with Quantum's strategic focus.
