(FSFG, MAS, HTLF, PTSH) Market News From!




PTS, Inc. (OTC.BB:PTSH) announced that through its ThinLine division has signed a 3-year Voice Over Internet Protocol (OTCPK:VOIP) contract with MC Universal Art.

MC Universal Art has been designing and installing quality framed art for over 30 years. They are a leading provider of wholesale and retail art frames, fine art prints, signed limited additions, as well as providing interior design consulting services. MC Universal Art works with leading interior designers, architects, and office furniture dealers - they help their wholesale clients achieve an environment that drives the image and identity they want to project for customers.

Following several queries from the investment community, PTSH explains the relationship with ThinLine and addresses its "70% ownership". Raj Kalra, CEO of PTSH explains, "PTSH purchased my 70% ownership of ThinLine in a Share Exchange Agreement last week. In exchange of my 70% ownership I received restricted shares of PTSH stock. ThinLine has two owners, PTSH (70%) and a second party (30%). ThinLine is a subsidiary of PTSH, owning 70% therefore shall receive 70% of the profits. In respect to why the deal won't close until December 31, 2010 is due to two factors: 1) ThinLine has approx 70 days to complete SEC audits and; 2) PTSH has its year end 12/31/10, and it makes for easier accounting. For all intensive purposes it is business as usual for PTSH and ThinLine since the merger.
