Date:2/21/2009

NEW YORK, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Explorations Group Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: EXGI), announced today that it has acquired Florida-based Hawk Biometric Technologies, Inc., a developer of patented biometric systems for the automotive, real estate and maritime industries. Hawk Biometric's signature PASS(TM) product integrates fingerprint scanning into a vehicle's operating system and permits operation by only authorized drivers. Combined with optional GPS capabilities, PASS(TM) allows vehicle owners to remotely monitor, track, geo-fence, speed check and disable PASS(TM) equipped vehicles.

David Coriaty, CEO of Hawk Biometric and the new CEO of Explorations stated "by joining with Explorations, we now have the opportunity to leverage our substantial biometrics intellectual property and the ability to access additional capital to pursue distribution, marketing, and manufacturing relationships to broaden our penetration into multiple market verticals." Eric Brown, the departing CEO of Explorations said "we are thrilled to have the entire Hawk Biometric team join us. The acquisition of Hawk Biometric should be just the first step in our long term plan to build shareholder value."

Shareholders of Hawk Biometric received a total of 600,000 shares of Explorations' Series B preferred stock, each share of which is convertible into 100 shares of Explorations' common stock. Explorations is planning a 1-for-6 reverse split of its common stock. The Series B preferred shares will not be affected by such stock split. Explorations expects to spin-off its parking garage assets to its shareholders of record as of February 18, 2009.
