Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Tradamax Group

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Tradamax Group
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   TDMX), today announced technology acquisitions including
 operational equipment, data center hardware and software acquired from
 FocusCore, Inc. and the Company's Asian partners for $4.7 million of
 restricted common and preferred shares.
     The acquisition will strengthen Tradamax's seamless, end-to-end (e2e) food
 supply chain trading platform.  This extensive platform will utilize
 streamlined systems architecture including the new Unysis ES7000, along with a
 Compaq Proliant server farm and multiple layers of security using Cisco
 Firewalls and Intel VPN to power and protect Tradamax's proprietary trading
 platform.  Ed Roberts, Tradamax's Chief Technology Officer, stated that,
 "Tradamax's new data center configuration can process millions of complex
 commerce transactions daily, without straining the current architecture."
 
     About Tradamax Group
     Tradamax Group has developed an end-to-end (e2e) online, closed market
 trading system and Internet portal site dedicated to becoming the premier
 Internet-based trading, information and communications marketplace for coffee,
 cocoa, rice, sugar, grain and other related commodities.  The website is
 designed to simulate the way physical commodities are currently traded and
 substantially enhance the users capabilities by providing "turn-key" operating
 platforms to buyers and sellers. These proprietary, user friendly, multi-
 functional and multi-lingual online platforms allow users to do business with
 the same counter-parties they already trade with and expand a broader
 marketing spectrum of global industry participants, eliminating layers of
 costs through a comprehensive and efficient Internet based system.  The
 Company intends to capitalize on a significant business opportunity by
 bringing a tri-part trading system to the Internet, and providing market
 participants with a complete end-to-end  (e2e) platform for the food supply
 chain and commodities trade.
     Unlike individual consumers, the target audience for Tradamax is
 accustomed to paying multiple transaction access and subscription fees for
 obtaining market information.  Management believes that users will quickly
 realize significant cost advantages inherent in the Tradamax system over
 current, heavily burdened transactional information services and trading
 media.
 
     The foregoing statements regarding the anticipated performance, new
 product introduction, future products, capabilities, features, applications,
 product availability, price, market acceptance, and the impact of the new
 products on the company and the market are forward-looking statements subject
 to change and actual results could differ materially from those described in
 any forward-looking statement.  Factors that could affect actual results
 include the ability to successfully manufacture and distribute new products at
 sufficient volume, quality and reasonable cost; the timing of new product
 introductions; the success or introduction of competing products and
 technologies; and the significant uncertainty of market acceptance of new
 products.  Important factors that may cause actual results to differ are set
 forth in the company's periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
 Commission.
