Nimrod Madar, CEO of GlassesOff, commented, “We are delighted to
welcome on-board significant institutional investors. Following the
closing of this private placement and the positive preliminary results
from our iOS soft launch, we are ready to move forward with our stated
execution plan, including the completion of our iOS soft launch and
initial launch of GlassesOff for the Android operating system, currently
scheduled for the end of the second quarter, followed by a planned ramp
up of our marketing activities in the U.S. market and concurrent
initiation of our marketing plan for international expansion.”

technology is one of the most interesting disruptive technologies I have
seen in a long time, with the potential to enable people of all ages to
significantly improve, through exercise, their visual skills and
performance. The Company has commenced a clear commercialization

martial arts or any other sport in which visual interpretation and
resulting decisions need to be made in a split second.”
