The company now has dealers throughout the Northeast footprint.

| March 20, 2013

SUFFIELD, Conn. – Sharkmarx, an online marketplace linking buyers and sellers of landscape
products, hit a critical milestone by registering dealers throughout the Northeast footprint. “We are
thrilled to have dealers signed up with our seller network from Boston to Virginia, and everywhere in
between,” said George Beiter, co-founder.

“The first phase of our launch was focusing on the manufacturers. We then concentrated on
establishing a strong network of dealers to subscribe to our marketplace so we are ready for the spring
surge of landscape products,” Beiter said. The next stage is aggressively targeting professional
landscape contractors to use the Sharkmax purchasing engine, he noted, adding that aggressive
traditional and electronic advertising campaigns were recently launched and the company is seeing a
large spike in contractor registrations.

With the Sharkmarx purchasing technology, buyers of landscape products simply post their material
needs on the Sharkmarx web site, which automatically solicits bids from authorized sellers of those
products. Each seller can submit competitive bids to earn the business. Winning sellers arrange
delivery or pick-up as specified by the buyer’s posted requirements.

“We are thrilled with this milestone,” added Dan Degan, co-founder. “This early user adoption validates
our business model."
