TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - ISIS Lab Corporation (TSX VENTURE: LAB) (FRANKFURT: ISX) (Frankfurt WKN: A1XB97) (the "Company" or "ISIS") is pleased to announce international tennis legend, renowned tennis phenom, and businessman Boris Becker ("Becker") has been appointed as Brand Ambassador for the Company's innovative and award winning social gaming platform ISISFriends®.
Once describing Wimbledon as his living room, Becker has always been a leader -- pushing the envelope of achievement, innovation and creativity. Today, the global icon, hits a new benchmark by joining the revolution of online gaming and social networking with ISISFriends®.
As an early adopter of technology and fan of social media and gaming, Becker incorporated social media as a marketing tool for his own personal brand years ago.

Adding to his past accomplishments, Becker is the current coach to Novak Djokovic, the world's second ranked tennis player. He is a contributing columnist for a popular German magazine with an estimated fourteen million readers. As a former sports commentator for the BBC, and resident of Wimbledon, the British press has dubbed Becker "Britain's best known German."
Famously coining the phrase "If you want to win something special, you got to do something special," at a recent meeting with Isis management Becker noted, "The ISIS team has created something very special, an all-around win for the social, online gamer, the company, and its investors. They have combined two of my favorite passions: gaming and social media. This intersection is what sets them apart."
