TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

TORONTO, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc. ("FOX-TEK" of the "Corporation"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (the "LOI") with Zamil Group Holding Company ("Zamil").

Under the terms of the LOI, the Corporation will build up to 20 PinPoint systems for Zamil for sale in Saudi Arabia. The delivery of the systems are conditional on Zamil obtaining export credit financing (the "EDC Financing") and Zamil securing clients to contracts of 2 to 3 years for the data tracking services.

At a cost of $75,000, the potential sale of the twenty PinPoint systems will represent gross sales of approximately $1.5 million. It is anticipated that approval of EDC Financing will take approximately 90 to 120 days from the date that the application is submitted for approval.

Mr. Allen Lone, President of the Corporation, stated "We are excited about entering into an agreement with a company such as Zamil. The execution of the LOI is a direct result of the Corporation's commitment, understanding and vision for the Middle Eastern market and the various industries that comprise such market. The agreement with Zamil will not only contribute to the Corporation's bottom line but it will showcase the Corporation's products in the Saudi Arabian market as well as in the Middle East, markets that the Corporation has always viewed as essential for the continued success and growth of the Corporation. This agreement will act as a template for similar agreements in the Middle East and elsewhere. We look forward to having a very successful relationship with Zamil and to expanding our presence and opportunities in the Middle East."
