Fortress Financial Group, Inc. -- Suspension of Stock Repurchases

Company Suspends Stock Repurchases to Avoid Delay in Stock Dividend Payments

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - Fortress Financial Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FFGO) confirms that the Company will no longer be repurchasing any of its shares of Common Stock until after the payment of the Extraordinary Stock Dividend.

Further stock repurchases and their subsequent cancellations will delay the declaration and payments of the Extraordinary Stock Dividend declared by this Company. This is not considered to be in the interests of stockholders at this time.

The Company is, at this time, expediting the Extraordinary Dividend payment and the announcement of the "Record Date" and will not accept any further delays in this respect.

The Company expects the Transfer Agent to be in a position very shortly to confirm that the Company's shares of outstanding Common Stock are as announced and confirmed by this Company.
