Visual Management Systems to Acquire Digital Software Company, Intelligent Digital Systems

TOMS RIVER, NJ--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - Visual Management Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VMSY), a leading digital surveillance company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the acquisition of substantially all the assets of digital software company Intelligent Digital Systems, LLC (IDS), a New York Limited Liability Company. IDS is the developer and manufacturer of TechEye® Digital Video Recording (DVR) technology. The terms of the agreement call for Visual Management Systems to issue to IDS's sole member a three year junior unsecured convertible promissory note in the sum of $1.5 million, with a conversion price of $1.15 a share.

In keeping with Visual Management Systems' (VMS) business model of continually delivering the latest in surveillance technology solutions, this acquisition will allow the company to further develop its proprietary DVR, which it believes is unique in the industry. VMS plans to expand on IDS's existing distribution and introduce the technology to its channel partner network. The proposed transaction also represents a further step towards VMS's goal of offering customers digital surveillance systems developed and assembled entirely in the United States. The transaction is expected to immediately increase top line revenues of VMS's PDG subsidiary.

"The execution of this MOU represents progress towards achieving a critical goal in the VMS business plan. IDS technology presents many strategic advantages in enterprise surveillance management. It's a real best of both worlds offering. End users will have the flexibility they need to leverage their existing investments in security infrastructure, while expanding functionality into state-of-the-art technologies offered by VMS," said Jason Gonzalez, CEO of Visual Management Systems.
