[UKPRwire, Wed Mar 22 2006] UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. ((OTCBB: UGHO), NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, today announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC’s prime contract with the United States Department of State.
Universal’s SR-SSSI shall deploy mobile security teams in remote regions of Afghanistan to provide protection and defend against hostilities directed at personnel traveling throughout destinations in these regions.

”This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies”, stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. “We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years,” continued Mr. Braes.
