CEO Message, from LKPL website:
26 September 2007
These are exciting times at Link Plus. During the months since my last message we have moved quickly with new partners and attracted new customers. We have put a number of new initiatives in place and we have met many of the goals that were set upon my appointment.
First, earlier this summer the Company closed a significant Joint Development Agreement with International RAM Associates which enables us to more rapidly commercialize the Safe-T™ MIPs products for a range of airport security applications. Link Plus and RAM are already actively working on our first major product and we have plans for several important others to follow. This Agreement was announced in a joint press release and the news was subsequently featured in a profile article in the Baltimore Examiner. This increased exposure for Link Plus has led to several additional opportunities which we hope to share with you in the coming months.
Equally exciting, on Thursday, September 20th, Link Plus was awarded a sole source contract by the United States Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command. This contract is for the development and delivery of our SAFE-T™ Paint explosives detection technology. Under this contract we will be adapting the technology for use with an existing weapon system. This system will have direct application to the US Army’s War on Terror abroad, as well as to every law enforcement agency concerned about the daily challenges of detecting and protecting from deadly explosives and the people who employ them.
We also continue to make progress with our established partners including Cubic with whom we delivered a farecard explosive detections system for a public transit demonstration on September 21st. This system is being coupled with other technologies that comprise Cubic’s total security and automated fare collection system. We expect the Safe-T card reader to be widely exposed to both Government and transit agencies in the coming months.
The combined efforts of the management staff to focus the Company’s resources and attention on the homeland security market have led to the growing acceptance of Link Plus’ products in the marketplace. The developments noted above are strong indicators of the sizeable opportunity that exists for Link Plus in this marketplace. They also validate our strategy and technology.
Link Plus’ sales and marketing pipeline continues to fill with new and exciting prospects. I am confident that our continued diligence and hard work will bring more successes to the forefront in the ensuing months.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the Company and its’ products.

During this last year, the Company's focus and primary new product developments have resulted in a major evolution and confirmation of its strategic direction. Starting early in 2005 Link Plus successfully completed the development of its latest generation of long-range radio modules. We then quickly moved into completion of a mesh communications protocol and a new generation of development tools. Also, in September 2005, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory granted Link Plus an exclusive worldwide license to its Molecularly Imprinted Polymer (MIP) explosive detection technology. The MIP technology can detect a wide range of explosives making it ideal for the detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) used by terrorists. These two developments allowed the Company to enter into several high-growth markets which will have a dramatic effect on the Company's future.
Perhaps the two most significant entries have been in the areas of automatic meter reading (AMR) and transportation security (TRANSEC). These market sectors have become the major focus of the Company. In the area of AMR, the Company achieved several key milestones including the development of a fixed based AMR system unparalleled in the industry. Sales and marketing efforts have brought worldwide attention to the Company's offerings and have resulted in a major partnership in the United Kingdom. The relationship is with the largest meter reading company in the United Kingdom. Together, the companies will be installing several pilot installations across the UK. In addition, the Company is actively making progress to introduce its products in the US, Argentina, and China.
TRANSEC is a completely new development for the Company and is a result of the aforementioned license from The Johns Hopkins University. The MIP technology has unique qualities that are not found in other explosives detection systems. In combination with the radio mesh network solutions, initially developed for AMR, Link Plus is moving quickly to apply this technology to Homeland Security applications associated with land, air, and sea transportation. These vary from protection of public transportation systems, airport baggage and passenger screening, border security, nuclear power plant security, container and cargo tracking and security, and others. In keeping with the Company's core business model, the Company has executed several Joint Development Agreements for integrating MIP explosive detection technology into public transportation systems, container tracking and security, and others.
On June 26, 2006, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), in addition to the current MIPs technology for explosive detection, granted Link Plus Corporation a new exclusive worldwide license for the use of MIPs technology to detect: toxins, chemical agents, biological agents, pesticides, poisons, elements, and chemical compounds. Eventually, this will allow us to detect most agents used by terrorists such as: anthrax - a biological agent; ricin - a poison; sarin - a chemical nerve gas agent; etc.
The Company is progressing into challenging and positive times with the potential for very rapid growth. A firm baseline has been developed over the past year and will be exploited as the Company moves forward. Please continue to visit our web site as we expect to be providing more frequent updates and announcements of our new alliances and products.

and here is a copy of the ceo's previous message:
These are exciting times for Link Plus Corporation. We began trading publicly on 10 October, 2003 under the symbol LKPL. This was the culmination of nearly two years' effort to become a publicly traded company.
We started 2004 off with a bang. I'm delighted to announce that we have acquired the technology and business assets of JS Technologies Corporation, a small privately-held company specializing in digital radio technology and products. Through this acquisition we have broadened our technology offerings, and will be able to leverage our existing Lincompex technology and products in new and exciting ways. As a result of the acquisition, we have signed development and manufacturing agreements in vehicular security and automatic meter reading.
To end 2004, we signed a Cooperation Agreement with Shanghai Taihang Investment & Development Co. Ltd. of Shanghai, China to build a high technology manufacturing plant in China to manufacture primarily Link Plus products in China for exportation to the United States, the world, and the Chinese domestic market. This agreement allows us to offer our customers one stop shopping. That is, we can now, using our core technologies as a base, design, develop, and manufacture products for them under their label as an ODM/OEM supplier.
So far in 2005, to further extend the concept of one stop shopping, Link Plus has executed additional agreements to further service our customer base.
All of these technologies have broad application to consumer, commercial, and industrial applications, as well as military and national security.
Our technical staff and strategic partners are eager to provide you with support and innovative solutions. I personally look forward to working with you.
Robert L. Jones, Jr.
