DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS Newstart Canada, through its two companies, provides special financing options to individuals with no credit history or with damaged credit. Buy Here, Pay Here Financing is the concept. These internally financed products are 24 month leases. Since inception in August 2007, Newstart Canada’s portfolio of internally financed leases has grown to approximately 400 accounts and $2.0 Million dollars. THE MARKET SEGMENT Our finance product fits well within the growing demographic of the individual with a credit rating that does not meet the requirements for bank or major car dealer financing. We serve the growing market segment in Ontario of individuals who are self employed, single parents, new immigrants, bankrupts and others with no credit or damaged credit. These people often require a vehicle in order to earn a paycheque, and can have significant difficulty finding financing. According to Bankruptcycanada.com, consumer bankruptcies in Ontario for February 2008 were up 13% compared with the same period the previous year. And overall consumer bankruptcies in Canada in 2007 increased by 86.5% over 1990. Since 2001, there has been a large increase in one-person households. According to the 2006 census, between 2001 and 2006, the number of one-person households increased 11.8%, more than twice as fast as the 5.3% increase for the total population in private households. A large number of these families are headed by women with little or no credit history, or men whose credit has been damaged by a divorce.

People, Credit, Cars! THE INDUSTRY The industry is not consolidated in Canada. On one hand, the major players are many small car lots whose primary business is used car sales with special financing assistance available to the client. On the other hand, there are relatively few third party lenders who provide special financing to D level credit customers. Newstart Canada resembles the business models of companies such as Credit Acceptance www.creditacceptance.com and Westlake Financial www.westlakefinancial.com, both located in the United States. MANAGEMENT Mr. Baker, Principal, has over 25 years of experience as a self made entrepreneur who has successfully grown, expanded and sold several companies over the years. He has had successful careers from waste management to real estate. Most recently, he was co-owner and controlling shareholder of large autofinance company and was instrumental in increasing the company’s customer database from 100 to 4500 before he was bought out in August 2007. Mr. Baker has over 30 years of experience in the automotive industry, with the past 10 years dedicated full time to automotive. He owned and operated Auto Finance Group which represented private auto lenders for inventory financings of used car dealers and provided lease financing to clients with poor credit history. He owned a “Wrecks for Rent” franchise, growing the fleet to 70 cars before selling. Following this experience, Mr. Baker went on to become a 50% owner in Guildwood Motors of Scarborough, a successful Buy Here, Pay Here dealership. These grass roots teachings have given Dave unsurpassed knowledge of the auto industry which he has expanded to include the sub-prime auto financing business. He is an active member of several organizations including The Better Business Bureau and Leedom & Associates 20 Group for Special Financing. He is now recognized as one of the leading authorities on sub-prime auto financing in Canada. As such, he has been able to attract a dynamic staff with significant experience in special financing, sales and collection. Sharon Baker, CMA, Chief Financial Officer, owns and operates a successful consulting firm, which she founded in 2001. She provides strategic and financial services to the company. SUCCESS FACTORS The two critical success factors in this industry are underwriting and collections. Mr. Baker’s experience has allowed him to develop underwriting criteria that significantly increases the quality of the leases the company writes. The company employs a custom software solution that allows it to actively manage all accounts to ensure that cash inflow from accounts are maximized and that detailed information exists for all

People, Credit, Cars! accounts. The company does not accept cheques for payments, relying on Western Union, MoneyMart and Prepaid Authorized Debits (PAD) from the client’s bank account. The software extracts a PAD file for payments due, which is transferred to the bank on a daily basis. Clients are permitted the flexibility of choosing their payment dates to coincide with their payments stream, greatly decreasing the probability of a rejected payment. Leedom & Associates 20 Group for Special Financing, of which Mr. Baker is a founding member, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information. All company data is benchmarked against the companies that participate as well as against broader industry indicators. Many of the participating companies have portfolios that exceed 20,000 accounts and have a receivable balance of over 100,000,000 grown from companies that started as small as ours. The group comes together 3 times a year for meetings and dialogue on specific topics, and shares composite data and benchmark reports monthly. See attached for a comparison of Newstart key benchmarks to industry benchmarks. FINANCIAL POSITION The company is in a strong position with assets of $2.2 million, largely made up of yet-to-be leased vehicle inventory and a portfolio leases with a principal balance at October 31, 2008 of approximately $1.5 million (interest receivable on the leases is an additional $500,000.00). Revenues for the period August 1, 2008 to April 30, 2009 are approximately $2,471,000.00. Since August 1, 2007, Newstart Canada has raised approximately $600,000 from family and friends to finance these cars loans. Mr. Baker’s commitment to the company is represented by his Owners’ Equity contribution of approximately $1 million. GOALS Mr. Baker’s goal for the company is to increase the portfolio by $200K per month. Each increase of $200K requires approximately $100K in capital to finance, and results in a net new cash infusion of 5K per month to the company (12K inflow from client payments, less 7K outflow to investors/lenders). Over the life of the contract (24 months) the net cash infusion to the company is approximately $150K for every $100K borrowed. CORPORATE FINANCE Newstart has engaged London Stone Financial Group, as limited market dealer in Toronto, to raise the funds needed to grow Newstart’s business. London Stone Financial Group specializes in providing advice and sourcing funds for small and medium size companies. Interested Investors are asked to contact:
