NaturalNano Receives First Payment From Fortune 200 Company

ROCHESTER, NY | Posted on May 22nd, 2008

NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCBB: NNAN) (FWB: N3N), a developer of advanced nanomaterials and extended release nanotechnologies, today announced that it has received the first cash payment from a Fortune 200 multinational corporation for the development of advanced uses of its HNT™ extended release technology.

NaturalNano also noted that projects with two additional large multinational corporations are expected to produce revenue for NaturalNano this quarter and eventually lead to supply agreements for NaturalNano's products.

NaturalNano's current relationships include:

-- NaturalNano has received its first cash payment initiating the
development program with a Fortune 200 global consumer products giant. The
project involves extended release of fragrances for use in home and
personal care products and provides a path toward a joint product launch.
Terms of the funding and the name of the corporate partner, one of the
world's largest consumer products companies, are not disclosed for
competitive reasons.

-- The Company has a purchase order for a 3 month project from a Fortune
100 multinational consumer products company, and continues to work toward
future funded projects.

-- The Company also has purchase orders for two funded projects from a
multinational corporation which is one of the world's largest global
chemical manufacturers. NaturalNano is also working toward a joint
development agreement.

-- NaturalNano expects pre-payment for samples ordered by an additional
Fortune 500 chemical manufacturer, and is also moving toward establishing a
joint development agreement.

-- The Company is currently negotiating a supply and license agreement
with a world leading private label contract manufacturer in the cosmetics
industry.

-- NaturalNano has a signed Joint Development Agreement with Cascade
Engineering, a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative plastics
solutions for multiple markets, including the polymer composites industry.
NaturalNano and Cascade are expecting the first revenue from this
relationship to commence during 2008.


"We've demonstrated our HNT technology as a superior additive for plastics. We're now focused on customer-specific product development and gearing up for production shipments with both large and mid-size companies," stated Cathy Fleischer, Ph.D., NaturalNano President and CTO.

NaturalNano holds an exclusive license from the U.S. Dept. of the Navy, Naval Research Laboratory for proprietary technology in eleven specific market segments, and has patented proprietary methods for processing and functionalizing HNT technology.

"We remain pleased with our progress toward our 2008 performance goals. Specific terms of the agreements and the names of some of these customers are being withheld at their request for competitive reasons," Fleischer explained. "These projects are a solid foundation for what we believe will be long-term partnerships that will expand into new technical areas, products and markets," Fleischer concluded.
