His experience will be invaluable as we enter a new phase in our business and corporate growth."

Mr. Lin has served as CFO at several technology and software related companies including Uniloc USA, Inc. and its subsidiary Blue Cava, a market leader in device identification. At Blue Cava his responsibilities included managing three years of auditing, as well as working directly with the CEO to successfully develop a patent litigation strategy which led to a $388 million patent infringement judgment against Microsoft. He served as Vice President of Finance and a member of the board of directors of Fast Search and Transfer ("FAST"), a leader in the enterprise search and search technology space, where he led the financial evaluation and due diligence on all acquisition and joint venture targets eventually closing acquisitions totalling $50 million in deal value and multiple joint ventures with global 500 companies.

I believe this company has all the right ingredients to build exceptional value for shareholders.
