. August 20, 2008

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – WWA Group, Inc. (OTCBB:WWAG) today announced record revenue, gross profit and net income for the six-month period ending June 30, 2008.

Gross revenue for the January through June 2008 period increased by 15% over the same period in 2007, to nearly $16 million. Gross profit for the January through June 2008 period increased by 7% over the same period in 2007, to over $4.1 million. Net income for the January through June 2008 period increased by 27% over the same period in 2007, to nearly $1.1 million or $0.06 per share.

WWA Group recognized its highest auction and service commission revenue ever in the recent six month period. Gross trading revenue, gross profit, and net income totals for the recent six-month period were also the highest ever recorded by the company.

WWA Group is planning three more physical auctions at its Dubai facility in September through December 2008, and is projecting increases in auction and trading revenue, gross profit and net income for full year 2008.

“We are continuing our steady growth in revenue and profits,” commented Eric Montandon, CEO of WWA Group. “Despite a drop in ship charter revenue and a delay in realizing a profit contribution from our earthmoving project, we still grew revenue and profit in the period. Since we anticipate positive contributions from each of these divisions in the second half of the year, we expect an excellent financial result in 2008.”
