IRVINE, Calif. -- Remote Surveillance Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RSUR) is pleased to announce its entry into the public market, as it begins trading under the symbol RSUR.PK. Remote Surveillance Technologies, Inc. ("RST or the
"Company") (www.rsttech.com), since its formation 12 months ago, has positioned itself in the marketplace as a full-service electronic security systems integrator and remote surveillance monitoring company. RST provides security analysis, systems design, equipment purchase, installation, and integration for off-site video monitoring. Advances in technology, coupled with heightened security concerns of government and business, since the events of September 11, 2001, have resulted in an acceleration of the technology of existing video surveillance systems. The most reasonable and cost-effective approach to providing verification of alarm events and pro-active voice intervention, is through the use of remote video monitoring, in which RST specializes.
RST's market resides within the high-tech, financial services, pharmaceutical and bio-tech centers of America. It consists of silicon chip, computer component, and pharmaceutical makers, as well as their storage and distribution centers. The fact that this segment of business requires the utilization of security guard manpower, more than any other, makes this market the most compatible with the services RST is offering.
These companies tend to consider security a "Necessary Evil," an expense, non-revenue producing department, most easily serviced by security guards.
Most of the functions a security guard performs can be done remotely by RST, with integrated and voice interactive video, access control, and other electronic security devices. This approach relieves the company of the guards' well-established shortcomings, while providing superior security, at cost savings that average fifty percent (50%), making that "Necessary Evil,"
a great deal more palatable.
RST brings effective and demonstratable remote surveillance and interactive security technologies to the technology producing centers of America, through the approach of locating its monitoring and sales facilities in their neighbourhoods. This would be accomplished through placing remote monitoring station "Hubs," tied to multiple and proximate "Satellite" sales offices, (which can exhibit the security technologies) in the West, the Midwest, the South, the Southeast, and the Northeast. The sites have been chosen by researching technology centers throughout the nation, with the greatest amount of revenues, employees, and concentrations of security guard manpower.
RST has two sources of income: (1) installation revenues, and (2) recurring monthly monitoring revenues, that compound as additional customers are attracted to the services provided by RST. The contracts signed by RST and its customers usually have a minimum term of twelve months. Therefore, RST revenues compound rapidly without a substantial increase of costs associated with this revenue stream.
The Company spent most of 2006, its initial year of business operations, developing the Company's infrastructure, building the 24/7 monitoring facility and soliciting contracts and accounts. Clients of the Company currently include: SC Fuels, Cajon Valley School District, Charriol Geneve Jewelers, Southland Transit and two very
large high-tech companies in Southern California. The Company
projects reaching $4.6 million of gross sales in 2007 and $16,500,000 of gross sales in 2008. Gross margins should exceed 40% in both 2007 and 2008, with the Company realizing net profits of $300,000 in 2007 and $1,600,000 in 2008.
The Company is also focused on implementing an acquisition strategy that exploits opportunities for consolidation in the industry, coupled with strong organic growth. Company management believes that it can significantly accelerate its growth through the execution of selective acquisition of, or investments in, complementary security technology products and services entities. The Company intends to actively pursue selective strategic acquisition opportunities that it believes will accelerate the development and deployment of new product and service offerings, enhance its market opportunities, and accelerate the Company's entry into attractive geographical markets.
The first acquisition is under negotiation, and the Company anticipates closing this acquisition by the end of February, 2007.
