EGPI Firecreek, Inc. and Terra Telecom, LLC Announce Positive Response and Plans for Expansion in the Utilities and D.O.T. Industry

Expansion to Provide Solid Growth for Terra Telecom

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 2, 2010) -  EGPI Firecreek, Inc. (OTCBB: EFIR) and Terra Telecom, LLC (referred as "Terra"), are pleased to announce plans for continued expansion in the utilities industry.

Terra Telecom, a premier Alcatel-Lucent partner, is a leading provider of state-of-the-art communication technologies. Over the years, they have serviced several significant utility companies with a broad range of customized services. Because of their success within this industry, several key opportunities have allowed them the ability to meet and exceed expectations. Because of this, additional opportunities have now made themselves available which will ultimately allow the company to show exponential growth within this specific key market.

Mark Lane, VP of Operations for Bristol Virginia Utilities, stated, "Terra Telecom has been instrumental in the success of BVU OptiNet's call center infrastructure and hosted PBX service to government entities. Their partnership approach and creative business models have allowed us to develop the right mix of product portfolio, self-maintenance, and vendor-support. Even in situations where the manufacturer has been inflexible in meeting our needs, Terra has found a way to work around or through those limitations to meet our business requirements and customer needs."

Denver Water has relied on Terra for the past 4 years as their communications partner. Some of their recent changes included networking several of their remote sites into their Denver Headquarters communications system. Terra Telecom and Denver Water have now deployed a new advanced disaster recovery solution to ensure business continuity in the event any one of their facilities became unusable. Terra's capabilities in the world of disaster recovery have provided Denver Water the solutions that will keep them running in the worst possible scenarios.

Wade Clark, Terra Telecom CEO, stated, "A major South West Utility Provider made the move to Terra Telecom 4 years ago. This past April, after winning the RFP for support renewal, Terra was again issued a multiyear contract for ongoing services due to its competitive pricing and the demonstration of its technical expertise over the previous 4 years. This Utility Provider is currently in the process of upgrading all of their systems to the latest revision levels, and their Water Customer Service department is also currently upgrading their Genesys Contact Center, adding integration with Microsoft CRM for screen pops, and doing a Genesys Voice Portal deployment for IVR functionality. No matter the need, Terra is there to deliver the solutions to meet our customers' challenges. We are extremely optimistic about the potential for growth we have in this market." He also stated, "Terra Telecom is now leveraging this business model, specific to this vertical market, in order to negotiate for a new 5 state D.O.T. contract for Microwave, data, and voice communications infrastructure enhancements."

As previously announced, EGPI Firecreek signed a binding Letter of Intent to acquire Terra Telecom, LLC. Terms have already been set and agreed to by both parties. Both companies are currently working diligently through their due diligence process in order to finalize the acquisition by September 30th.
