The Company presently owns 100% of the stock in Intuitive System Solutions Inc. ("ISS") of Las Vegas, Nevada. Since its formation in 2001, ISS has positioned itself as a leading system integrator and UL Certified panel facility. The Company has evolved to focus on two distinct lines of business. Each of these lines is linked to the foundation of the business -- integrated and automated systems controls.

The Company currently focuses on:

Industrial Automation and Control. ISS has an experienced staff of electrical and control engineers, as well as project managers, with over 80 years combined experience in industrial automation and controls. The Company's business is currently focused in Nevada, Arizona and Utah, but it intends to expand through internal growth and acquisitions into California, Texas and New Mexico and other western states during 2007 and 2008. From this segment of the business, ISS is projected to realize $4 million of gross revenues in 2007 and increase the gross revenues from this division to over $21 million in the next two years. As an example of the type of services provided by ISS in this division, a major national airline utilizes ISS extensively for automation projects at Las Vegas McCarren International Airport.

Automation Manufacturing. The Company is a certified Underwriters Laboratories Panel fabrication facility. This nationally recognized regulatory body provides ISS with significant marketplace credibility for custom control panel assembly and fabrication to its clients. From this segment of the business, ISS is projected to realize $1 million of gross revenues in 2007 and increase the gross revenues from this division to over $4 million in the next two years

NAS projects achieving gross revenues in 2007 of $4,544,094, with a net pre-tax income of $1,781,688. Through an acquisition strategy that encompasses a minimum of one major acquisition per quarter, as well as through internal growth of ISS, due to its recently granted increase in licensing capacity to $2 million per project, the Company should increase gross revenues to $25,780,972 in 2008, with net pre-tax income of $16,190,755. With a total of 40 million shares outstanding the management of the Company projects earnings per share of $0.03 in 2007 and $0.27 in 2008.

National Automation Services, Inc. recently announced that its has reached an agreement to purchase Intecon Controls ("Intecon"), located in Phoenix, Arizona, for a combination of cash and restricted stock worth $1.75 Million. Intecon (, a 9-year-old company, specializes in engineered controls, UL Certified Panel Facility and Systems Integration, that services the Arizona Industrial and Municipal Market. As part of the agreement, the current shareholders and management of Intecon, Brandon Spiker and David Marlow, who have over 50 years of combined automation and controls experience, have agreed to stay with Intecon for a minimum of two years after the closing. The closing is anticipated to occur on or before December 31, 2007.

Intecon was established by its present shareholders in 1998 and presently employs 15 engineers and staff. The company historically averages between $2.5 million and $3.5 million in gross revenues, with net profit margins of approximately 20%. NAS estimates that there are cost synergies between ISS, another wholly owned subsidiary of NAS, and Intecon of immediate savings of 15 to 20% in reduced overhead, accounting and legal costs, which should fall immediately to the bottom line of NAS on a consolidated basis. NAS anticipates doubling the revenues of Intecon in 2008 through the introduction of national clients available to NAS who have the need of localized products and services in the Phoenix market, and well as through increased marketing of Intecon services throughout Arizona.
