announces that it has entered into a non-binding term sheet with respect to
the purchase of a major U.S. based Security Services provider.

investment banking firm and other investment firms by way of prospectus.

and electronic video surveillance services with multi branch offices in the
US, will provide United Protection Security Group Inc. with the link it has
been looking for in the US market, as well as greatly expand its video
surveillance and monitoring operations. Closing of the transaction is targeted
for March 31, 2008.
    This transaction is subject to reaching agreement on the terms and
conditions in a definitive purchase agreement and will require approval from
the Board of Directors of UPSG and the TSX-Venture Exchange.
