Evans Systems, Inc. Ends Attempt to Acquire TeleCents Communications, Inc.

JUPITER, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- Evans Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: EVSY) announced today that TeleCents Communications, Inc. has withdrawn from the process to be acquired by Evans Systems, Inc. Evans Systems had signed a Letter of Intent to acquire TeleCents Communications, Inc. of Michigan for $13 million in cash and stock considerations. TeleCents Communications, Inc. is a privately held telecommunications company that provides Voice Over Internet Protocol services, internet based call-on demand, and pre-paid, PIN-based calling card services.

TeleCents withdrew from the non-binding Letter of Intent due to two law suits that have been filed which involve Evans Systems and its directors. The first suit has been filed by former Homeland Integrated Security Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HISC) CEO and President, Frank Moody II. Moody resigned from Homeland on June 30, 2006. His suit names Homeland and its directors as defendants and claims that he is due up to 7,500,000 shares of Evans common stock. The Company vehemently denies this and has countersued Moody. The issue is before the Courts in North Carolina.

On January 5, 2007, Evans Systems was named a defendant in a law suit in which Big Apple Consulting, USA, Inc. is the plaintiff. Big Apple alleges that according to the terms of a consulting agreement with Evans, it is entitled to approximately 7,600,000 shares of Evans common stock. The Company vehemently denies this claim. In addition, Big Apple Consulting USA, Inc. holds a $1,207,000 convertible promissory note that it purchased for $25,000. Big Apple has sought to convert the note into free trading common shares at a rate of $0.05 per share which would result in Big Apple acquiring 24 million shares of Evans stock. The Company believes that according to the note agreement, the conversion rate should be $0.50 per share which converts to 2.4 million shares. Finally, Big Apple maintains that it is owed a 51% interest in Evans, a claim that is unfounded. The Company has obtained counsel to defend the action, and counterclaim against Big Apple for damages suffered by Evans and Homeland Integrated Security as a result of Big Apple actions.

"It is very disappointing that we were not able to close the TeleCents transaction," stated Fred Wicks, CEO of Evans Systems, Inc. "However, we are aggressively pursuing other acquisition candidates. At the same time we are working diligently to dismiss the litigation that we are facing."
