Hathaway Corporation (HWYI) Updates New Investors on Business Model

ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 9, 2006 -- Hathaway Corporation (PINKSHEETS: HWYI) announced today the company has received many inquiries from new shareholders and potential investors regarding the Company's business model.

The company issued the following statement regarding their operations:

"Over the past few days, we've seen a tremendous increase in the movement of our stock and have received countless inquiries from shareholders and potential investors on how our business model is progressing. Our wholly owned subsidiary, OptiCon Systems Inc, is in the final stages of the spin-off and Diabetes Detections Device Inc. (DDI) has a complete working prototype of the Vibrameter and is ready to begin clinical trial testing. The interest for this medical device has increased dramatically and we've had many conversations with several mobile device manufacturers for possible joint ventures. In addition, we're currently looking at two other acquisitions in the telecommunications sector in both South America and the South Pacific," stated Mr. Paul D. Lisenby, acting CEO of Hathaway. Mr. Lisenby adds, "Hathaway's business model is seen as a rather outstanding appreciation potential here for our investors. Each acquisition will result in either a cash or share dividend when it is either sold or spun off as a public company. Those dividends will be based on the percentage of shares each shareholder has in HWYI. Hathaway plans 2-3 acquisitions per year. In the case of our first acquisition, OptiCon, the dividend should be extraordinarily attractive as the company expects Opticon to begin trading, based on certain valuations of $84M. A copy of the valuation report has been supplied to NASD and will be supplied to SEC per our filing requirements."
