Innova Holdings Completes Acquisition of CoroWare

CoroWare Brings Mobile Service Robotics Integration Expertise to Robotics and Automation Technology Company

FORT MYERS, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- Innova Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: IVHG), a robotics and automation technology company, has closed on the acquisition of CoroWare Inc., a systems and mobile service robotics integration specialist based in Bellevue, Wash.

The acquisition is expected to serve the growing need for mobile service automated systems, by integrating Innova Holdings' patented robotics arm and controller systems with CoroWare's software development, systems integration and robotics testing capabilities that will help Innova Holdings expand its ability to deliver robotic solutions.

In addition to its robotics development, integration and testing business, CoroWare offers software development and systems integration services on Windows, Unix and embedded systems platforms. With these capabilities, CoroWare has the ability to design, create and market intelligent robotics applications that integrate a customer's enterprise infrastructure.

"CoroWare has significant software engineering expertise, and with our patented robotics software we believe we can revolutionize the industry," said Walter K. Weisel, chairman and CEO of Innova Holdings, Inc.

As part of the acquisition agreement, CoroWare will be able to achieve its maximum performance payment and share valuation by earning revenues of at least $2.0 million over the next 12 months.

"Based on the success and reputation that CoroWare and CoroWare Test Labs have built, I am confident of our team's ability to achieve these goals," said Lloyd Spencer, president and CEO of CoroWare.

CoroWare Test Labs, a subsidiary of CoroWare, is the first robotic standards-conformance organization and sole commercial developer of test services and products for Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS) compliance. JAUS, a Department of Defense initiative, is designed to ensure interoperability and communication standards across the unmanned vehicle domain and applications for the military.

"Customers seeking independent confirmation of compliance can continue to look to CoroWare Test Labs for impartial, standardized testing using our suite of compliance testing applications and services," Spencer said.
