AirNatech Holdings Ltd. Establishes in the UK a Major Environmental Nanotechnology Win for UK Trade and Investment UKTI's Global Entrepreneur Program and US Bridgehead Group collaborate to

create AirNatech Holdings Ltd. in the UK, immediately securing a seven

figure investment in NIL Technologies of Denmark. This move marks phase two

of the group's global strategy of becoming a worldwide leader in

ultra-efficient Nano-technology powered refrigeration, renewables, and

related industries such as solar and fuel cells.



    LONDON and NEW YORK, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridgehead Group
 (http://www.bhgltd.com), the international business strategy, venture
 capital and investment banking organization based in New York City, has
 recently acquired a major stake in NIL Technology ApS, a Danish
 Nanotechnology company which pioneered Electron-lithography techniques for
 reliably creating nanostructures & imprint services -- much needed to
 develop the next generation of ultra energy-efficient refrigeration and
 computing technologies. The move follows Bridgehead's financing in February
 2006 of AirNacon Ltd., which will also become a subsidiary of AirNatech
 Holdings Ltd. With the assistance of UK Trade & Investment's (UKTI) Global
 Entrepreneurs Programme (GEP), Bridgehead Group now has organized its
 operations including AirNacon Ltd. and NIL Technologies within a single
 UK-based holding company called AirNatech Holdings Ltd.
     London based AirNatech will finance, structure, control and grow its
 global operations in the air conditioning, refrigeration, and related
 nano-technology industries. AirNatech and its partners provide companies
 and technologies with excellent growth potential and a holistic support
 system that enables synergy between the companies, traction with strategic
 partners, employee participation, exit strategies, and access to innovation
 coupled with protection of intellectual property at early stages. The
 principal objective of the group is to facilitate but professionally manage
 billion-dollar industry super-growth, by deploying experienced management
 together with extraordinary industry innovation.
     The UKTI GEP helped Bridgehead Group in many aspects of planning,
 structuring and financing for AirNatech to become a British headquartered
 company. GEP Dealmaker Eric Van der Kleij aided Bridgehead by providing key
 information about the benefits of a UK holding structure. Bridgehead's
 relationship with Mr. Van der Kleij began around three years ago when he
 helped Bridgehead's CEO Jeppe Hansen acquire a stake in iCurie, now Celsia
 Inc. The GEP will continue to assist the AirNatech team as it executes the
 next phases of its $250M financing and commercial growth plans.
     UKTI created the GEP to attract talent, finance, and take advantage of
 the unique strategic benefits of the UK as a global headquarters for major
 new businesses. The GEP utilizes a network of proven successful
 entrepreneurs or "Dealmakers," such as Eric Van der Kleij, who provide
 information and guidance on every aspect of setting up a new venture in the
 UK. "We are very pleased to have helped Bridgehead form a cohesive and
 pioneering global technology group that that will create substantial value
 for all the components by capitalizing on the synergies between them," said
 Derek Goodwin, Head of Global Entrepreneurs Programme. "We believe that
 emerging technologies, especially those that are working towards advanced
 ways to conserve energy, should be supported by governments. They are a
 crucial part of the future that we are pleased to be supporting."
     Mr. van der Kleij commented, "I have enjoyed working with Bridgehead at
 every stage of the process. They are an exciting organisation, always at
 the forefront of technological and commercial innovation. The recent
 creation of AirNatech proves once again that their sophisticated and
 effective mentorship of global entrepreneurial innovation is instrumental
 in helping a start-up company to become a global success in its field."
     Mr. Jeppe Hansen, Chairman of AirNatech and Chief Executive Officer of
 Bridgehead remarked, "Bridgehead is extremely grateful for the support of
 UKTI. They have consistently provided us with exemplary assistance and
 guidance, and their support and experience enables us to gain far more
 commercial and investment traction than a purely private company. Basing
 this global group in London will provide numerous advantages that other
 countries cannot offer, such as a superior strategic global reach and more
 favorable protection of the group's intellectual property."
