Beacon Enterprise Solutions Signs Definitive Agreement

Beacon Enterprise Solutions Signs Definitive Agreement 
LOUISVILLE, KY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 --   Beacon Enterprise
Solutions Group, Inc. (OTC: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com) announced today
that it has executed a Definitive Agreement for the acquisition of
Optos Capital Partners, LLC. Optos, which conducts business through
its subsidiaries Focus Fiber Solutions and Focus Wireless, is a
leading provider of infrastructure services for wired and wireless
telecommunication companies. Optos is keenly focused on the expanding
bandwidth needed to meet the robust demand for fast and reliable
access to wired and 4G wireless data networks. Upon completion of the
transaction, the combined entity is expected to be renamed Optos
Fiber.  
Chris Ferguson, CEO of Optos, commented, "Optos has built its
reputation and business around major, Fortune 500 corporate
customers. It has grown rapidly since inception and has maintained
that momentum in the first quarter of 2013. In 2011, we were able to
generate more than $11 million in sales and grew that volume
organically to north of $40 million in sales in 2012. We are excited
about becoming a publicly traded company through the transaction with
Beacon. We will now accelerate our growth with better access to
capital and accretive add-on acquisitions. The market perceives the
dramatic growth for capacity on communications networks by data,
video, streaming, social media, mobile commerce and smart technology,
and our profile as a public company is anticipated to enhance our
prospects in the marketplace."  
Bruce Widener, the current CEO of Beacon, commented, "We believe this
is a very positive development for Beacon stakeholders and we look
forward to assisting the new management team in building value for
shareholders and partners going forward." Mr. Widener will remain on
the Board of Directors of Optos following the transaction and will
continue to provide transition services for an interim period.  
"Optos is a service provider in the telecommunications infrastructure
vertical, experiencing an increased growth mode as the industry moves
to enable data capabilities," added Mr. Ferguson. "As a data porting
enabler, we help rebuild and upgrade the telecom network to manage
and enhance broadband and allow for increased data usage. In short,
the technology of smart phones has far exceeded the capabilities of
the infrastructure. With companies like Facebook and Apple launching
new cell phone apps daily, as more and more consumers use their
cellphones and other mobile devices for activities other than
telephone calls, data and video have become of paramount importance.
The current fiber and wireless networks cannot support this
expansion. The need to revamp and rebuild the networks is evident in
the enormous capital service providers are spending. We believe this
is an important development in our goal to assist customers in
meeting their infrastructure needs." 
Under the terms of the Definitive Agreement, it is expected that
Optos' members will be issued preferred shares at closing that will
convert into a majority of the common shares following a
one-for-twenty reverse split. In addition to new management that will
be brought in at the operating level, the Board of Directors of Optos
is expected to be increased to 7 members. The Company also intends to
pursue an uplisting of its shares as soon as possible following the
transaction. Beacon and Optos expect to provide greater detail on
this transaction, which is slated to close in the second quarter of
this year, as well as an operating forecast for the balance of 2013,
in the near future.
