Global ePoint, Markland Technologies and Global Matrechs Announce New Feb. 16 Date for Trilogy Capital's Online Homeland Security Forum; Jack Mallon, Noted Authority on Homeland Security, to Deliver Keynote Address
LOS ANGELES, Feb 9, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Global ePoint ( GEPT ), Markland Technologies ( MRKL ) and Global Matrechs ( GMTH ), emerging growth companies in the homeland security industry, have announced a new Feb. 16 webcast date for Trilogy Capital's online homeland security forum. In the forum, representatives of the participating Companies will present an overview of strategic plans, while prominent homeland security industry authority Jack Mallon will deliver the forum's keynote address.
Mr. Mallon is Managing Director of Mallon Associates, a division of C.E. Unterberg, Towbin, an investment bank that provides financial services to security industry companies. His keynote address will focus on the state of the homeland security industry during 2004, including an investment-oriented analysis of how the security industry performed with respect to appreciation of stocks. Mr. Mallon will discuss the past year's mergers and acquisitions, including the performance of foreign stocks and a range of other developments in the industry. He will also provide his projections for trends in the $150 billion homeland security industry for 2005.
"The security industry was the source of some of the best-performing investment opportunities of 2004, with many of them far outpacing the marketplace average," said Mr. Mallon. "The Dow rose only about 3% for the year, while the Nasdaq composite and Standard & Poor's gained about 8%. But our tracking showed the security industry rising an astonishing 46.3% for the year, with most of the big gainers consisting of microcap stocks. It's an exciting marketplace with great potential."

The webcast, approximately 30 minutes in length, is open to all interested investors. To view the conference, register online as explained below.
