Hathaway (HWYI) Announces Completion of OptiCon Systems, Inc. Spin-Off

Company Pursuing Three Prospective Acquisitions

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - September 5, 2007) - Hathaway Corporation (PINKSHEETS: HWYI), a company that focuses on acquiring, developing, and managing disruptive technologies in the telecommunications, medical devices, and software fields that change the way companies grow and service their business globally, has announced that it has completed the spinoff of OptiCon Systems, Inc.

"We are pleased to announce that OptiCon's spinoff is now complete, and we expect our shareholders to receive their dividend shares in OptiCon within a few days," stated Sadruddin Currimbhoy, Hathaway's COO.

OptiCon's public listing has yielded a dividend of one share of OptiCon for every two shares of Hathaway held to all the shareholders of record as of the ex-dividend date of August 13, 2007. The dividend shares are expected to be free trading as a result of OptiCon Systems' registration under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the facts in connection with the dividend. There will not be a trading market, however, until the NASD issues a trading symbol. OptiCon Systems cannot predict when this may happen.

"We are excited to have attained this important milestone, which has rewarded our shareholders with shares in an impending newly listed public company, and has provided strong validation for our excellent business model. And, there is more to come -- Hathaway is committed to staying on track of acquiring two or three companies a year, and maintaining our exit horizon in each company of 1-2 years. We are actively pursuing prospective acquisitions that fit our strategy," added Mr. Currimbhoy.

Hathaway targets companies within the telecommunications, medical devices, and software fields with technologies that bring a shift in how the future is delivered globally.
