Security Financing Services Announces Acquisition of Alarm Monitoring Assets

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 --Security Financing Services, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SCYF), a provider of sophisticated, IP and physical security convergence solutions, has closed the initial $1.5 million tranche of a $4 million, three-tranche purchase of alarm monitoring assets. The seller is S3 Video Systems, LLC, a private Texas investment company. This first tranche is made up of approximately 1,100 residential and commercial alarm monitoring accounts located in and around Houston, Texas. SCYF will be providing alarm monitoring and access control services to several local governmental entities and national retail accounts, including Cici's Pizza, T-Mobile, CompUSA, Subway Restaurants, Cingular Wireless, ReMax Realty, Williams Gas Pipeline, the State of Texas Youth Commission and Department of General Services, and the Harris County Independent School District.

Mike Hardy, President and CEO of SCYF, stated, "We expect high margin revenue to flow from this diversified portfolio of alarm monitoring accounts for a minimum of 84 months. The portfolio provides us with a strong customer base, and we expect it to generate strong demand for our equipment and services for years to come.

"We anticipate announcing the closing of the second and third tranches of this important acquisition in the very near future," continued Hardy.

Coming on the heels of its recent announcement of its intent to acquire Nsite, LLC, a provider of Lessons Learned Technology to the Defense Department and branches of the U. S. military, and its recently announced agreement with the Alliance for Security in Education, the closing of this acquisition is an important step in the consolidation of SCYF's IT/Physical Security Convergence Strategy.
