It must be understood that Coates is a fully reporting public company trading on the NASDAQ OTCBB - COTE and must abide by the SEC Rules and Regulations.

When our company divulges information regarding the names of other entities that we are talking to or negotiating with, some of our unsophisticated stockholders are contacting these potential customers and Licensees and interfering with our company's business and procedures. (This we cannot tolerate), so in the future management has decided not to divulge the names of the entities and companies it is in negotiations with until deals are signed, sealed, and delivered. However, the company is in negotiations continuously with numerous companies and entities at this time, and will release information, as it deems appropriate.
