Changes Name to PrivateMarkets, Inc.

February 18, 2008, Boxborough, MA — Energy Trading International, Inc. today announced that effective February 20, 2008, it has changed its name to PrivateMarkets, Inc. This name change better reflects the nature of the company’s product and services.

“As we were field-testing our product, some prospects mistook the company to be a broker — which we are not,” commented Chris Sanders, President and CEO. “The name PrivateMarketssums up the essence of our product — we allow a trader to instantly create a market of known counterparties and to privately negotiate a bilateral transaction with them.”

In conjunction with the name change, the Company announces a new web site at All existing “” URL’s and email addresses will continue to function as before.

This change in our corporate name will not affect the validity of any existing contract that bears the Energy Trading International name.
