"Because of the time constraints imposed by my travel and other projects I feel I can no longer do justice to the position of chairman of the board and I enthusiastically endorse Allen's appointment," added Diaz. "It has been a pleasure to work with the team of professionals at e.Digital and I wish everyone involved the very best."

Eric Polis has been secretary and treasurer of ASI Technology Corporation, a publicly traded specialty finance company, since July 2000.
