"Corporation") announced that it has decided to exercise Luxell's option to
convert promissory notes issued to creditors. In accordance with the terms of

approximately 3,454,868 common shares of the Corporation at a price of
CDN$0.40 per common share, subject to regulatory approval. The shares will be

    Jean Louis Larmor, CEO of Luxell commented, "Luxell has made substantial
headway in advancing our ruggedized display business and in executing our
strategic initiatives, particularly over the last 5 months. While tangible
progress is being made, we have not yet fully realized the substantial
benefits we expect to see from our actions and the substantial range of new
business proposals to existing and prospective customers over the last
90 days. We expect that this improvement in our balance sheet will also assist
the company in growing its market position and achieving our objectives."
