ForeFront Holdings, Inc. has entered in the beginning of January into a series of agreements concerning its business of manufacturing and marketing of golf accessory products, to a ForeFront's wholly-owned subsidiary, Forefront (BVI) Ltd., newly incorporated under the law of the British Virgin Islands. The agreements will provide for the contribution of the business to the above-mentioned BVI company, and its sale, subject to shareholder approval, to Stanford Venture Capital Holdings, Inc.

Ltd., major Chinese electronics manufacturer. The company will focus on the convergence of these broadband multimedia technologies to provide expanded high definition service to the consumer at reduced costs.

ForeFront also has entered into agreement to receive equities in an amount equal to $12 million from Stanford International Bank, an affiliate of Stanford Venture Capital Holdings that currently holds approximately 80% of Forefront's outstanding common stock.
