TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - FTS Group, Inc.

FTS Chairman and CEO Scott Gallagher commented, "Today is an exciting day for our Company and its stockholders. Since I acquired control of FTS in 2002 when sales were zero, my goal has been to build a profitable, sustainable high growth Company, pay-off our debt and create wealth for our partners which are our stockholders. Today we take a huge step forward in that process by acquiring the 26th largest IT solutions provider in Canada." Gallagher went on to say, "We also today announce the appointment of David Rasmussen, an officer and director of FTS Group, as the new Chairman and CEO of OTG Technologies Group, Inc. Dave's leadership, contacts and career experience in the IT field while at GE and other leading Fortune 500 Companies will be an invaluable asset to the future growth of the new Company."

OTG Technologies Group, Inc. Chairman and CEO and FTS COO David Rasmussen commented, "This is a very exciting time and opportunity for FTS Group and the shareholders of FTS stock. As we continue to execute on our overall strategy, this acquisition will be integral in helping establish FTS as a key player in the technology space and allow for us to realize one of our key successes of providing shareholder value. This acquisition will also allow us to continue to build a company that will be in a solid position for future growth." Rasmussen continued, "I am very pleased to have been selected by Scott to lead this venture. Since we began due diligence on OTG I have been getting more excited about the opportunities that it will bring to FTS and its shareholders. There is a very strong team in place at OTG which will allow for future growth and provide excellent service to its client base."

Gallagher continued, "In addition to today's acquisition announcement we're nearing completion of the liquidity event transaction between our Internet Company Elysium Internet, Inc. and publicly traded US Biodefense, Inc. (OTCBB: USBF). I firmly believe this transaction will, at a minimum, double our stockholders' equity and dramatically increase shareholder value. We expect Elysium to capitalize on the huge opportunity in the direct navigation/Internet media space by accelerating the development of its valuable domain portfolio as a stand alone public Company."
