Additional Information and Where to Find It

In connection with the proposed business combination among Benessere, eCombustible Energy, BCAC Holdings, Inc.

This Registration Statement includes a document that serves as a preliminary prospectus of BCAC Holdings and a preliminary proxy statement of Benessere, and is referred to as a proxy statement/prospectus. The Registration Statement has not yet become effective. Following the Registration Statement having been declared effective by the SEC, a final prospectus/definitive proxy statement and other relevant documents will be mailed to Benessere's stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed Business Combination. This press release is not a substitute for the Registration Statement, the final prospectus/definitive proxy statement or any other document that BCAC Holdings has or will file with the SEC, or that Benessere has or will file with the SEC or send to its stockholders, in connection with the proposed Business Combination. Before making any voting or investment decision, investors and security holders of Benessere, eCombustible and BCAC Holdings are advised to read the Registration Statement, all other relevant documents filed or that will be filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed Business Combination, because these documents will contain important information about the proposed Business Combination and the parties to the proposed Business Combination.

Participants in the Solicitation

Benessere, eCombustible, BCAC Holdings, and certain of their respective directors and officer, under SEC rules, may be deemed to be participants in the eventual solicitation of proxies of Benessere's stockholders in connection with the proposed Business Combination.
