AVL Global Inc. Shareholder Update
PORT HURON, Mich., May 12, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Management at AVL Global (Pink Sheets:AVLL) would like to keep our shareholders advised of recent developments at the company. Unique testing of the energy saving unit has shown that when installed in a laptop computer as a thin profiled heat-sink rather than as cooling fan, the temperature remained the same.

Testing is continuing in hopes of accurately determining the increased lifespan of the battery.
