Zunicom Announces Future Plans

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - Zunicom, Inc. (OTCBB: ZNCM) announced today that management plans to seek investment opportunities through acquisition or combination transactions with businesses that share Zunicom's interest in growth and appreciation of shareholder value.
