OptiCon (OPCN) Spins-Off PowerCon Energy Systems Into Separate Company

PowerCon Becomes Wholly Owned Subsidiary

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - OptiCon Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: OPCN) a global provider of communications and telecommunications software for Wireline, Wireless and fiber optics, announced today that the spin-off of the Company's Energy division, PowerCon Energy Systems, is complete. PowerCon is now a wholly owned subsidiary of OptiCon Systems.

This transition from a business unit into a wholly owned subsidiary will be the first step in positioning PowerCon as a major solutions provider for the fortune 1000 power companies globally. Major global utilities have initiatives in place to use smart grid (intelligrid, FutureGrid, and the more modern intergrid and intragrid) technology that delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers. The use of digital technology to saves energy, reduces cost, increases reliability, and transparency. Such a modernized electricity network is being promoted by many governments as a way of addressing energy independence, global warming and emergency resilience issues. These new initiatives will help power producers move into the 21 century.

It is quite possible that the next big financial windfall, for companies such as PowerCon Energy Systems, will come from helping the multi-trillion dollar energy industry move into the digital world by providing them products to accelerate their transition. PowerCon will provide Power Network Management Software, Intelligrid Monitoring System, and Fault Detection Information System to the global Power industry.

Sam Talari, acting CEO of the Company, indicated as follows:

"In the next few weeks, we will work diligently to joint venture with major global utilities as funding partners to complete the development of our products and services for the power industry and to provide clear and profitable exit strategy for our investors either through a buyout or and IPO."
