NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Stock Market Alerts.

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - Stock Market Alerts' performance stock list includes: HearAtLast Holdings Incorporated (PINKSHEETS: HRAL), SkillSoft PLC (NASDAQ: SKIL), GE (NYSE: GE), Sprint (NYSE: S).

HearAtLast Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRAL) should have investors monitoring stock. Early this morning, the company issued a press release announcing that its wholly owned subsidiary HearAtLast, Inc. entered into a formal agreement with Siemens, one of the world's largest and most experienced manufacturers of hearing aids.

Good news for HRAL! The press release states that the companies have entered into a capital equipment financing arrangement valued at approximately US$930,240 that will enable HearAtLast to open twenty-four new hearing clinics throughout Canada. HearAtLast currently operates 18 hearing clinics co-located within Wal-Mart Stores, Wal-Mart Supercenters and Sam's Clubs in Canada under a master licensing agreement with Wal-Mart Canada Corp. The Company also operates two free standing clinics, one in the Villages, Florida and the other in the Regency Medical Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

In addition to deferring expansion costs for HearAtLast, this unique equipment lease arrangement will also enable the Company to create a standardized platform for each hearing clinic, with each clinic having the same hearing testing equipment, protocol, and appearance. Siemens has agreed to lease to HearAtLast approximately US$38,760 in hearing testing equipment for each new hearing clinic. This arrangement will provide all of the hearing testing equipment needed for each new hearing clinic.

Continue to watch this company. "This is a well thought out, comprehensive agreement and is quite advantageous for us," stated Robert Oswald, President of HearAtLast. "We already sell Siemen's products and if we meet certain sales requirements, and we are quite confident we will exceed them, we will greatly defer or virtually eliminate our lease payments for the equipment being provided to us by Siemens. It's a win-win deal for everyone," Oswald stated.

HRAL closed Friday at Fifteen a share.
