of TXEG. "During the bankruptcy proceedings we did substantial due diligence and
found the Company's failure was not due to the business model, which was sound,
but a lack of funding to reach its full potential. TXEG's investment capital tightened
significantly in the final months of operation because of its financial relationship
with Circuit City. When Circuit City went out of business, TheaterXtreme was forced
Now that TheaterXtreme has cleared bankruptcy eliminating all the problems from
the past, TheaterXtreme Entertainment Group(TXEG) can start growing the company again.
The bankruptcy filing included TXEG's popular RowOne® furniture line. "It took
a lot of work to fix the problems with RowOne® but we met with our former store
owners, dealers, and AV advisors and made the corrections needed to the RowOne®
furniture line. We now have the furniture necessary to do Theater Xtreme's popular

custom entertainment centers and RowOne® screens."

business model will be a great way for them to improve their home theater business."
Former suppliers, upon learning about TheaterXtreme's plans to move the company

feet and new in-store concepts are the company's future plans."
On the drawing board is a new smaller conceptual store to open in the Wilmington,
Delaware area where it all began. "This would be a natural place to open a new
store," says Cribbs. TheaterXtreme still has a strong following in the Wilmington
area. With TXEG's name recognition, this would be a great starting point for a

store concept, and expansion plans will make for exciting times for potential TXEG
operators and their customers," says Cribbs.
