SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - Nexia Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NXHD), a diversified holdings company, through its subsidiary Green Endeavors Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: GRNE), is actively seeking to acquire additional salon locations. Nexia's CEO Richard Surber stated, "Our team has identified at least two potential salons that could be acquired before holiday season in 2009. The salons we are looking at are licensed to sell Aveda products."

Mr. Surber further stated that "The acquisition of the salons in question would increase revenues from salon operations by an estimated 60% in the short term and would double salon revenues within 24 months based upon my initial observations."

Nexia's subsidiary GRNE intends to purchase existing salons that are licensed to sell Aveda products with a combination of its securities, seller financing and a small cash component. GRNE has engaged several online resources and people in the salon industry to locate potential acquisition candidates. These sources have produced over a dozen potential acquisition candidates throughout the United States.

Mr. Surber noted that "The fact that our organization is publicly held is a key advantage over most other salon companies that wish to acquire additional salons. Our publicly traded companies may use their shares to acquire salons while preserving cash flows to improve operations. We can also grant stock options to our employees as a tool to both attract and retain the life blood of a salon -- its stylist and support staff."

The above efforts coupled with our staffs' commitment to excellent customer service and the Aveda 12 Points of Difference as discussed in this short video at are key to future growth prospects.

If you are a salon owner and have an interest in teaming up with our organization, please contact Richard Surber at
