Avalon Technology Group Announces Stock Buyback

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - Avalon Technology Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AVLN) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has authorized a buyback of up to 50 million shares of common stock. The buyback would occur through open market purchases as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements.

The decision was based upon recent events and the agreement to acquire Worldwide Security Acquisitions. Avalon Technology Group is determined to increase shareholder value, maintain a strong balance sheet and improve returns. The Company will use a portion of the proceeds it has earned through the previously announced $7.5 Million purchase order for its biometric products towards the stock buyback. The buyback option will be available to all Avalon Technology Group officers and directors.

"I believe, based on recent events, the agreement with Worldwide Security Acquisitions and recent purchase orders, that our current stock price is extremely undervalued and should be trading at higher levels. This buyback program will be in the best interest of Avalon Technology Group and our shareholders," stated Pat Downs, CEO of Avalon Technology Group, Inc.

The Company recently announced it has agreed to acquire Worldwide Security Acquisitions, a cutting edge biometric and security company currently selling their products and services to Fortune 500 companies and government agencies under a GSA contract. Avalon Technology Group believes the acquisition will help the Company achieve an additional $50 million in sales through the U.S. General Services Administration's promotion of Avalon's product line.
