The First End-To-End Market System for Green Coffee



Apr 22, 2001, 01:00 ET from eGreenCoffee.com, Inc.

    STERLING, Va., and NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 22 /PRNewswire Interactive
 News Release/ -- Tradamax Group (OTC:BB "TDMX"), the first company to develop
 a highly sophisticated, proprietary online market system that will
 significantly improve the trading and logistical efficiencies for the food
 supply chain, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire
 eGreenCoffee.com, Inc., the first provider of a neutral, liquid and secure
 platform for trading green coffee.
     With this acquisition, eGreenCoffee continues to deliver on its vision of
 a single source, end-to-end (e2e) platform for online trading with seamless
 integration to key ancillary back-end services and communication tools.  The
 companies expect the transaction, the terms of which were not disclosed, to
 close on or before May 4, 2001.  The agreement is subject to customary
 conditions.
     "The only trading platform that will be successful in our competitive
 market is one that delivers liquidity and improved supply chain management,"
 said Hanif Moledina, CEO of eGreenCoffee and a coffee professional with
 extensive experience in all aspects of the coffee trade.  "The goal of
 Tradamax's technology, when fully developed, is to provide buyers and sellers
 with a sophisticated Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) system as well as
 futures trading capability with multi-lingual and multi-currency
 functionality," he said.
     eGreenCoffee's marketplace is a single source for producers, exporters,
 importers and roasters involved in the buying and selling of green (raw,
 pre-roasted) coffee.  Coffee traders designed the system to replicate the
 current trading process so it's familiar and easy to use.  The platform also
 helps maintain and enhance the personal relationships that are critical in the
 green coffee industry.
     According to Michael J. Skellern, CEO of Tradamax, "eGreenCoffee and its
 management team bring solid domain expertise, strong relationships throughout
 the coffee supply chain, and an established brand with world-wide industry
 recognition.  After an in-depth evaluation of all coffee platforms,
 eGreenCoffee was the most complimentary to our strategic direction and obvious
 acquisition choice to effect delivery of an efficient system for green coffee
 trading."
     Tradamax's expansion goals include the acquisition of targeted online
 exchanges that would benefit from seamless platforms with fully integrated
 logistics management (GSCM), communications and online futures trading.
     eGreenCoffee expects to launch Phase II of the platform with the new
 functionalities, including a searchable database and physical market price
 indicator to increase market transparency, as soon as the combination of the
 technologies is completed.
     In Phase III, the company plans to deliver a major version of the platform
 with the GSCM system, multi-lingual and multi-currency support, and futures
 and foreign exchange transactional capabilities. Based on industry feedback,
 market players have confirmed that an integrated system is vital to improve
 cost management and productivity efficiencies.  The system will also provide
 easy access to ancillary services -- including insurance, inspection,
 financing, hedging and transportation management.
 
     About eGreenCoffee.com, Inc.
     eGreenCoffee is the first company to offer buyers and sellers a neutral,
 liquid and secure platform to trade green coffee globally online.  Designed by
 coffee professionals, the marketplace is bringing the $50 billion green coffee
 industry -- the world's second largest commodity only to oil -- into the
 Internet economy with an easily accessible, common and reliable system that
 replicates the current trading process while improving its efficiency.
 
     About Tradamax Group
     Tradamax Group is developing end-to-end (e2e) online, closed market
 trading systems and portal sites dedicated to becoming the premier
 internet-based trading, information and communications marketplace for coffee,
 cocoa, rice, sugar, grain and 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 platforms allow users to do business with the same
 counter-parties they already trade with and the option of expanding a broader
 marketing spectrum of global industry participants, eliminating layers of
 costs and utilizing a true "efficiency vehicle" for the food supply chain and
 commodities trade.
