Joel Matlin, President and CEO of AlarmForce, said, "The Florida population has grown to over 18 million, which added to the over 35 million in the four States already served, gives AlarmForce a potential market of over 53 million.  Presently, AlarmForce services eight major centers located in North Carolina, Ohio, Georgia and Minnesota. Our current markets of Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Greensboro, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Atlanta and Minneapolis-Saint Paul will now be joined by Tampa Bay. We intend to continue expanding in Florida over the course of the next 24 months and believe that the expansion into this market will significantly enhance our future earnings and growth opportunities."

"Our expansion in the U.S. has established a growing base of subscriber accounts and delivered results that are firmly on track with our plans" said Mr. Matlin. "The company's balance sheet continues to be strong with cash flows financing our market expansion.  We will continue to evaluate our marketing efforts in order to establish strong brand recognition, highlighting our excellent value proposition, innovative technology and award winning customer service. We will continue to focus on economies of scale and leveraging our business model to contribute to our future success through organic growth."

Mr. Matlin concluded by saying, "We are very confident that our expansion into Florida and the resulting brand awareness will allow us to continue our strong growth pattern for years to come."
