Somerset International Group Featured in EQUITIES Magazine

Article Highlights Company's Acquisition Strategy and Success in Security Industry; Piece Details How Secure System Improves Safety On Campuses and Other Institutions

BEDMINSTER, NJ--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - Somerset International Group, Inc. (OTCBB: SOSI) (www.somersetinternational.com), a security technology company, was featured in the March 2008 issue of EQUITIES magazine.

The article, titled "Securing Profits at the Press of a Button" and written by Brian Hill, provides an overview of Somerset and its portfolio companies, Secure System, Inc., Meadowlands Fire, Safety, and Electrical Supply Co., Inc./Vanwell Electronics, Inc., and Fire Control Electrical Systems, Inc. The article highlights Secure System, which provides a personal alarm locator, or PAL, device that acts as a preventative feature in crime and health emergencies, allowing security forces to respond quickly to emergency situations.

Hill writes, "Because there are very few companies in direct competition with its Secure System subsidiary, Somerset believes that it provides the premier products and services demanded by education, medical, and commercial facilities for keeping employees, faculty, and students safe. Until now, security was in the hands of traditional call boxes, which are not only inconvenient, but don't continuously track a fleeing user."

The article quotes Somerset Chief Executive Officer John X. Adiletta: "Our ability to offer a full range of security products and services to enterprise and institutional clients will put us ahead of our competition, which does not have the advantage of our proprietary technology. Current growth goals include maintaining a 10% to 15% organic growth annually, acquiring three additional security technology companies, and achieving a revenue run-rate of at least $50 million within the next three years."

"We are pleased to be published in EQUITIES magazine, as it reaches a broad audience within the global financial community," said Mr. Adiletta. "The article defines our strategy and goal to continue expanding through acquisition, while maintaining organic growth."
