					 BizXchange is a worldwide leader in the rapidly growing business-to-
 business barter industry. BizX empowers companies to increase their
business success by maximizing resources, building new sales channels
                   and saving cash on expenditures.
BizXchange is a membership-based business community where members buy and sell products and services
 with other members using BizX dollars, which are equivalent to U.S. dollars. BizXchange acts as a third-
    party record keeper, providing monthly statements and current dollar balance. All transactions are
    recorded pursuant to trading procedures, policies, rules and regulations of BizXchange and the IRS.

                                    BizX helps companies save cash.
     Reducing cash expenditures boosts the bottom line of a business. Purchasing products and services
     through the BizX barter system minimizes cash expenditures, guaranteeing an increase in cash flow.

            BizX helps companies move underutilized and perishable inventory at full value.
   Barter through BizXchange is the most effective way for companies to get value out of slow moving
inventory and downtime. By engaging in trade through BizXchange businesses can turn underperforming
                        assets into new revenue streams that offset cash expenses.

                       BizX provides companies with an additional sales channel.
 BizXchange works closely with the members to promote their products and services, build new business
  relationships and facilitate barter transactions between companies that might not have done business
                                             together otherwise.
