Virtual Ed Link, Inc.: Empire Initiates Research as "Strong Speculative Buy"

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED) -- Dr. Alan McCartney, COO of Virtual Ed Link, announced today that Virtual Ed Link has been recommended as a "strong speculative buy" by William N. Walling of Empire Research Associates, Inc.

Virtual Ed Link, an innovator of superior integrated information system for safety and security applications in schools is "both very attractive and suitable for purchase by high risk/high return-oriented investors," according to the Empire Research report.

The following positive factors are outlined in the VRED investment thesis. First, society has a major problem: safety/security in our schools. Second, VRED has the necessary new product to mitigate this problem: its Safety and Security Management System (SSMS). It is the most comprehensive and only integrated product serving this niche market. Third, this management team is very talented, broadly experienced and totally committed. Fourth, rapid revenues growth (later, earnings) is foreseen because the school market is large and unsaturated for VRED's SSMS innovative offering. Fifth, we expect the Company to raise sufficient and necessary new capital, due to the match between the market's need and the capability of the SSMS to meet it. Sixth, successful execution of VRED's business plan could well lead to future buy-out bids for the Company, eventually elevating the share price.

The report further states, "In a nutshell, a market need exists and VRED now has the necessary product! Therefore, the key remaining hurdle is to sell it -- it is ready to go! We expect VRED's management to meet this challenge."
