FFD Transaction Update:

The partnership agreement, which was targeted to close on May 23, 2014, is in the process of obtaining final approval from the Chinese government. While the $1 million advance by FFD has become non-refundable and the exclusivity provision between FFD and the Company has expired, both parties continue to proceed to close as quickly as possible.

Upon the closing of this transaction, the Company will retain a 40% interest in the 3D business, which will be accounted for going forward on an equity basis. The approximate $12 million net proceeds from the FFD transaction will be used to fund continued development and growth of the Company's Cumul8 and Reelhouse technologies.
