Mr Joe Arend, Chairman, said:

The company has worked hard in transferring its main Research and Development facilities to Singapore, while at
the  same time reducing UK costs. This has resulted in the company becoming more efficient and focused  in  its
activities.  It is worth noting that overall, despite cost cutting, the company's head count of scientists  has
increased,  and  will  continue  to do so in the near future as a result of the  grants  we  have  procured  in
Singapore.  The  company now moves firmly out of pure research and development mode and now  into  sales  mode.
Pipeline  orders  and firm contract negotiations look positive for the reminder of the year.  We  believe  your
company  will emerge from the global recession in a financial position to allow us take full advantage  of  the
opportunities that will be available.

The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
