Stocks in this article: RODM





SAN DIEGO, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  AL International, Inc. (JCOF-PK), a global direct marketer of lifestyle and nutritional products as well as gourmet coffee, has hired the Investor Relations Group, LLC ("IRG") to serve as its investor relations and public relations agency.

IRG's investor relations team will target portfolio managers, analysts, and the retail community to increase investor awareness of AL International's direct selling model through which it offers an array of health and wellness products and services, specialty coffee, as well as telecommunications services.  Concurrent with that effort, the public relations team will initiate outreach campaigns targeting the media-at-large via traditional, print, television, cable, radio, internet, and social media outlets.

"Over the past year we have made significant progress diversifying our business units through strategic acquisitions," commented Steve Wallach, Chief Executive Officer of AL International. "With the merger with Javalution in July 2011, the combined entity reported net sales of $40 million last year and we believe that we have developed a core foundation that will enable the company to increase revenue in the future.  As we move forward in 2012 as a newly combined company, we believe that we have a strong story to tell to investors and the media and we look forward to leveraging IRG's experience.  We believe that we have just started and will continue to update our shareholders as we execute on our growth plan."
