ANS Group Achieves Silver Partner Status

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - The Board of ANS Group, a leading UK Technology Solutions group, is delighted to announce an update today on its Cisco partnership.

The Group has met the necessary resource requirements to achieve the Cisco Silver Certification, making it one of only thirteen Silver Certified Partners in the UK, demonstrating its continued commitment to its Cisco relationship.

The Cisco Silver Certification recognises partners for their knowledge and expertise in selling, installing and supporting Cisco solutions. In addition Silver Certified Partners, such as ANS Group, have integrated Cisco Lifecycle Services into their offerings and demonstrated a high level of customer satisfaction.

This certification will enhance ANS Group's credibility with both existing and potential customers and help the Group to deliver further value and technical expertise.

Scott Fletcher, Chairman of ANS Group, commented: "We are delighted to have achieved our goal of becoming a Cisco Silver Certificated partner, cementing our relationship with Cisco. This has already led to a significant increase in our Cisco business. We are however setting our sights higher still, with plans already in place to gain Cisco's highest accreditation, the Gold certification as well as becoming one of the first European partners to achieve Cisco's Master Security and Voice Specialisations."

The directors of the issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
