LOS ANGELES, Apr 1, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- The Hartcourt
Companies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HRCT, Frankfurt: HCT 900009),

the information and technical arm of the Bank of China Group ( www.icbc.com.cn/
), Hong Kong, has granted Financial Telecom Ltd. (FTL), ( www.fintel.com ), the
distributorship in mainland China for its real time quotation data feeds on
foreign exchange, precious metal, interest rates and related financial
information as quoted and traded by the Bank of China Group, available 24 hours
a day.

The Financial Telecom data feed services will include real time quotes, news,
indicators, charts, commentary, and expert analysis of all data and information
related to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Hong Kong Futures Exchange, and Foreign
Exchange Spot rates. Globally, approximately $1.5 trillion of foreign exchange

arrangement as the Bank of China quotes are accepted as an industry standard by
the investment markets in Hong Kong. The demand for reliable quotations and

underserved market. The right to distribute this data will strengthen the
information content of our Sinobull Financial Network while also providing
