Axium Technologies Announces Agreement With Nadatel Co., Ltd. to License Its Maximum and Network Video Recorder Products

The Agreement Estimated to Add $750,000 in Annual Revenues

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwire - October 3, 2007) - Axium Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXGI) is pleased to announce the completion of a licensing agreement with Nadatel Co., Ltd. for its Maximum Software and the software-based Network Video Recorder products.

Nadatel Co., Ltd. is one of the leading manufacturers of Digital Video Recorder and IP addressable cameras/servers in South Korea. Nadatel has been supplying its products to some of the largest electronic retailers in the world under OEM agreements.

The agreement calls for Axium to create versions of its Maximum Software and Network Video products that specifically operate with Nadatel's Digital Video Recorders and IP addressable servers/cameras. The agreement runs for two years with terms included for automatic renewal. The initial delivery of products is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2007. When the integration work is completed, Axium will retain the industrial and intellectual property rights for the products. Under full production, this agreement is expected to deliver a minimum of $750,000 in annual revenue, while achieving gross margins in excess of 90%.

Mr. WonSoo Chung, CEO of Axium Technologies stated, "This agreement provides Axium with another world class distribution channel for our products and a stepping stone to greater revenue opportunities in the near future. Equally important, the previously disclosed contract for Axium to integrate its Maximum software into many of Samsung Techwin's DVRs and IP cameras is now complete and Samsung will begin to pay licensing fees to Axium commencing in the fourth quarter of 2007. With this project complete, it is the perfect time for us to sign our second licensing agreement with Nadatel. We expect to complete the software integration into Nadatel products in less than two months. In the future, we anticipate signing additional licensing agreements for our software with additional manufacturers every quarter. If all goes as expected, within two years Axium's software business will be the most lucrative division of Company."
