EBIZ Enterprises Gains Confirmation of its Plan of Reorganization


HOUSTON -- April 15, 2002 -- EBIZ Enterprises Incorporated (OTCBB:EBIZ, - news) a provider of products and services to the business computer market, announced today that its plan of reorganization has been confirmed by the bankruptcy court in Phoenix, Arizona. The bankruptcy court entered its order approving the reorganization plan on April 11, 2002 with the effective date of the plan set for thirty (30) days thereafter. The action of the bankruptcy court completes the reorganization process started by EBIZ in September 2001.

As a result of the reorganization, all of the assets and business operations of Jones Business Systems, Inc. (JBSi), a wholly owned subsidiary of EBIZ, will be transferred to EBIZ, and new EBIZ will emerge as the sole reorganized entity through which continuing operations will be conducted.

A significant impact of the successful reorganization is the elimination of a substantial amount of the unsecured debt that EBIZ has on its balance sheet. Unsecured creditors are to receive cash payments over a two (2) year period equal to 7% of the balance owed at the time that the reorganization was begun. Creditors also receive a pro rata equity participation in the new EBIZ through newly issued shares and warrants. In addition, certain expenses attributable to the reorganization process through the bankruptcy court will be eliminated.

"The cooperation we received from our customers, vendors, creditors and shareholders was critical to our success in completing the reorganization process. We sincerely thank each of them for their support," said Bruce Parsons, President and CEO of EBIZ.

Parsons is encouraged about EBIZ's future prospects: "This reorganization plan gives us the fresh start that we need. We believe that our debt load following the reorganization is manageable. Now we expect to execute on our strategic and operational plans that have been established through this process."

Information about the reorganization plan is available on the company's web site at /reorgplan and complete information will be released when the company makes its 8K filing during the next two weeks.
