Epazz, Inc. Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Two Established Software Companies

Planned Acquisitions Expected to Increase Revenues, Help Epazz Become Profitable

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 27, 2008) - Epazz, Inc. (OTCBB: EPAZ) (www.epazz.com) announced today that it has signed a nonbinding Letter of Intent to acquire two well established proprietary office efficiency software companies based in Chicago, Illinois. The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2008, subject to due diligence, execution of a definitive agreement, and other closing conditions, funding permitting, of which there can be no assurance.

The target companies have a history of positive cash flows and profitability. Epazz believes that the software is truly unique and that there are only a few competitors that have such an all-encompassing suite of software in their target market. The target companies had a total of approximately $580,000 in revenues for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Epazz, Inc., CEO Shaun Passley stated, "These acquisitions provide a solid customer base of Fortune 500 companies, opening up numerous opportunities to cross sell customers on Epazz's BoxesOS."

These acquisitions are part of the Company's long term strategic growth plan to acquire profitable B2B software companies. The Letter of Intent provides for a purchase price of approximately $420,000, of which Epazz believes that it has commitments for approximately $200,000, and the remainder of which, Epazz plans to borrow in the future, which funds Epazz does not currently have on hand, and which Epazz will need to raise prior to being able to complete the acquisitions. Epazz is also in negotiations to acquire several other B2B software companies; however, Epazz has not entered into any Letters of Intent for the purchase of such companies and these future acquisitions will be dependent on several other factors, including the company's ability to raise additional capital, of which there can be no assurance.
