WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - July 31, 2014) - FastFunds Financial Corporation ("FastFunds" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: FFFC) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, The 420 Development Corporation, announce that Brawnstone Security, LLC ("Brawnstone") has been awarded a security services contract for an additional Ohio-based HUD housing facility. Brawnstone is a licensed armed security, private investigation, security technology solution provider and tactical training company servicing active accounts with several Government affiliated HUD housing facilities, schools, and industrial establishments across the Ohio region. Under the terms of the new contract, Brawnstone will be responsible for installing security hardware and peripheral monitoring devices throughout the premises of the property. It is the opinion of Brawnstone's management that this new contract could have an estimated value of $50,000 once fully completed. By being awarded this new contract, Brawnstone hopes to also receive a security staffing contract with the facility to provide armed personnel, which would generate additional recurring revenues for the company.
FastFunds is pleased with the progress that Brawnstone is making on expanding its operations and in receiving additional security services contracts in the Ohio region. As previously announced in a press release dated July 24, 2014, FastFunds completed the closing of acquiring a 70% interest in Brawnstone Security, LLC.
"We are very pleased with the progress Brawnstone is making in securing additional contracts. Security is such an important aspect in several types of industries, and Brawnstone is certainly up to the task in delivering the highest level of service in their space," commented Mr. Henry Fong, President of FastFunds Financial Corporation.
Brawnstone is continuing to market their services through several outlets and is preparing a proposal in response to a recent RFP issued by a large multi-national oil and gas company. Additional information pertaining to this development will be released to shareholders as more information becomes available.
"We are very excited about the future of Brawnstone. We have built a solid business to date and will continue to strive towards expanding our operations to include a presence in several industries. Our ability to scale and offer armed security services and highly advanced technological solutions will allow us the opportunity to bid on contracts that few others are qualified to fulfill. The level of expertise that we retain as a company sets us apart from the competition. Our merger with FastFunds brings us one step closer in being able to finance future growth in a timely fashion," commented Mr. Daniel Unsworth, President of Brawnstone Security, LLC.
Shareholders of the Company can expect to receive regular updates as progress is being made on these and other developments.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
