SAN DIEGO, May 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Javo(R) Beverage Company, Inc., a
leading provider of premium dispensable coffee and tea-based beverages to the
foodservice industry, announced its successful emergence from its Chapter 11
restructuring today.

On January 24, 2011, Javo filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the
United States Bankruptcy Code in the District of Delaware. In less than 100
days, on April 28, 2011, the Honorable Brendan L. Shannon, United States
Bankruptcy Judge, entered an order confirming Javo's plan of reorganization.
Javo's plan of reorganization received the unanimous support of the creditors
voting for the plan.

"Emerging from bankruptcy with good liquidity and a stronger capital structure,
Javo is well positioned for the future," said Stan Greanias, Javo's Chief
Executive Officer. "We worked hard to maximize value for all stakeholders. We
cannot thank our dedicated employees, customers, and trade partners enough for
making this restructuring a success. It was truly a team effort," Greanias

As reorganized, Javo is now a private company, no longer subject to the
reporting requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, with the
majority of its stock owned by Coffee Holdings, an affiliate of Falconhead
Capital. Under the plan of reorganization, trade creditors will be paid in full.

"It is satisfying to see Chapter 11 used as it is intended with a restructuring
that rationalizes the balance sheet, preserves jobs and a vibrant business,"
said Debra Riley of Allen Matkins, counsel for Javo.

Falconhead Capital was represented in the reorganization by Charles I. Weissman
and Brian E. Greer of Dechert LLP.
