1st Global Financial Reports March Transactions Increase 37% to Another Record High

Monthly Transactions Increase to Approximately $3,500,000 Over February's Previous Record High of $2,550,000

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 25, 2007 -- 1st Global Financial Corp. (PINKSHEETS: FGBF) (XETRA: ZUM) announced today that its monthly credit card processing transactions for March 2007 increased from $2.55 million in February to approximately $3.5 million -- a more than 37% increase from the previous month.

This increase builds on the momentum first set in February 2007, when 1st Global Financial announced that transactions increased approximately $500,000, a 26% increase, over January transactions. This expansion now puts 1st Global Financial ahead of originally projected levels of growth.

This new monthly transaction high comes just after 1st Global Financial's wholly owned subsidiary, 1st Federal Financial Corp.'s April 18, 2007 announcement that it added 50 new merchants to its total client list, through an agreement with A Business Store. These new merchants could potentially add over $400,000 in monthly transactions in addition to its already expanding organic growth. 1st Global Financial is optimistic that the monthly credit card transactions in April will continue at a strong growth rate.

"We are very pleased with the numbers for March and are confident that we will continue to see this type of growth throughout the year," says T.A. "Gil" Gillis, President of 1st Global. "Our business plan is proving solid and we are continuing to seek ways to build from this platform."
