BAT International CEO Discusses Company Strategy And Projects On Raging
Bull Web Site Forum

CHULA VISTA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 1999--BAT International
(OTCBB:BAAT - news) announced today that it is taking the unusual step
of participating in a popular Internet forum on the World Wide Web. The
forum can be found at

According to BAT International, a lot of misinformation was being
circulated on the Raging Bull Web site for many months. The company felt
it was important to set the record straight and correct the information
posted because the bashers were extreme.

Many companies such as Nike have been hit by bashers on the Internet
chat boards. Some have chosen to pursue litigation against people
posting. BAT is more interested in correcting the information on the Web
site and will, as an exception to its company policy, post messages at
this site for a limited time period.

BAT International's Chief Executive Officer, Joe LaStella, has already
begun posting messages on the BAAT forum on Raging Bull. Persons that
are interested in participating on the forum are asked to first review
the messages already posted by LaStella on the board. These include
message numbers 3894, 3909, 3942, 3949, 3995, 3996, 4011, 4026, 4046,
4054, 4055, 4058, 4062, 4063 and 4066. LaStella's postings are a mixture
of answers to specific questions about BAT International as well as
reissuing of some information that the company thinks is important for
the public to be fully aware of.

''The Internet represents a fantastic opportunity for a company like
ours to interact with stockholders and other interested parties as never
before,'' commented LaStella. The company plans to revamp some of its
existing Web sites in the near future, as stated in one of LaStella's
postings on Raging Bull, in order to keep stockholders up to date about
company news and events. ''Actively participating in Internet forums on
the Web is very time consuming because all statements must adhere to
specific corporate guidelines,'' LaStella remarked.
