FTS Group Retains International Consulting Firm to Complete Patent-Pending Cell Phone Translation Technology Utility Patent Application

OLDSMAR, FL--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - FTS Group, Inc. (OTCBB: FLIP), an acquisition and development Company generating positive cash-flow on over $7 Million in annual sales for 2007, today announced that it has retained the International consulting firm of Packer Engineering, Inc. to complete the engineering work and specifications needed for its patent-pending cell phone translation technology utility patent application.

FTS Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Scott Gallagher commented, "While it has taken us longer than we initially anticipated to get this project off the ground, we're very pleased that Packer Engineering, a firm with over 45 years of successful industry experience has decided to take on our project. Engaging the Packer team puts us back on track to complete and submit the utility patent application of our patent-pending cell phone translation technology to the United State Patent and Trademark office by mid summer." Gallagher continued, "Obviously the global market potential for a working cell phone translation technology is massive. We believe this is potentially a once in a lifetime opportunity for our Company and its stockholders if we can get the patent approved. Upon completion of the utility patent application filing this summer we'll begin the process of developing a working prototype. At this point we hope to have the prototype or some variation of a prototype working by the end of the year."
