FTS Group Signs Binding Letter of Intent to Acquire Patent-Pending Cellular Phone Translator Technology

Revolutionary Technology Is Expected to Break Language Barriers in Wireless Communications Industry

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - FTS Group, Inc. (OTCBB: FLIP), an acquisition and development Company operating in the Internet, Wireless and Technology space, today announced that it signed a binding letter of intent to acquire a patent-pending cell phone translator technology that it believes will transform the wireless communications Industry.

FTS Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Scott Gallagher commented, "It's an exciting day at FTS as we've announced today the signing of a binding letter of intent to acquire a revolutionary patent-pending cellular phone translator technology. The technology acquisition is scheduled to close within 14 days. Once the deal is closed, we'll immediately begin developing the prototype; when complete, the patent-pending technology will allow cellular phone users to communicate in real time in any language. The new technology allows cellular phone users to have a conversation with someone in real time that speaks another language, meaning that a user who can only speak in Spanish can have a real time cell phone conversation with a user that only speaks English; the technology converts the signal so each user hears the conversation in the language of their choice." Gallagher continued, "The patent-pending cell phone translator technology, when fully developed and deployed, has the potential to penetrate markets globally and is what we believe to be a revenue opportunity in the coming years of well over $100 million annually in the US alone, not to mention the opportunity in the European and Asian markets."
