Press Release Summary: RPO, a leading manufacturer of waveguide technology for touch
screen displays, placed an order for the NexTStar automated optical inspection (AOI)

Press Release Body: AUSTIN, Texas - March 25, 2008 - NexTech Solutions, Inc. and
FAS Holdings Group, LLC, doing business jointly as "NexTechFAS" (Pink Sheets: NXSL),
are pleased to announce that RPO, a leading manufacturer of waveguide technology for
touch screen displays, placed an order for the NexTStar automated optical inspection
(AOI) system. This tool will be used to detect defects and anomalies in patterned
areas of RPO's flexible polycarbonate. The NexTStar will also be used to take film
thickness and surface roughness measurements on substrates produced in the company's
manufacturing line.

RPO's polymer optical waveguide technology is the key component in its new touch
screen products. The company's waveguides are being applied to consumer electronic
devices as the optimal technology for touch screens in cell phones, PDAs, GPS
systems and more. The order and installation of this NexTStar system further proves
the company's technological edge and tool flexibility in this newly emerging flat
panel manufacturing market.

Malcolm Thompson, chairman and CEO of RPO stated, "RPO's breakthrough technology
based on flexible plastic substrates presented some unique challenges in identifying
defects. We were thrilled to see NexTechFAS' AOI solution meet these unconventional
requirements. This system is a great complement to the NexTechFAS spinless coating
solution we formerly acquired. Both solutions will play a significant role in our
process and help us reach the required yields as we ramp up on production of our
innovative touch-screen product."

"Together with our recent Plastic Logic Limited orders, this clearly positions
NexTechFAS as the AOI and coating leader in flexible and plastic substrate
manufacturing by demonstrating superior technological capability and the ability to
adapt to various types of product applications," said president and CEO of
NexTechFAS, Tony DiNapoli.

NFJV, LLC, doing business as "NexTechFAS", is the operating company of NexTech
Solutions, Inc. and FAS Holdings Group, LLC. NexTechFAS is a Delaware limited
liability company, headquartered in Austin, Texas, with facilities in Dallas and
