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

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
