    Electric~Spin Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Electric-Spin
Ltd. (TSX - V: ESC), is a leader in home golf simulators marketed under its
Golf Launchpad brand and carried by premier retailers in over 16 countries
worldwide. Electric~Spin designs, develops and manufactures its golf
simulators, accessories and software at its headquarters in Woodbridge,
Ontario, and at its Asian facilities.
    At the Consumer Electronics Show held in January 2008, in Las Vegas,
Electric~Spin launched the latest version of its flagship product, called Golf
Launchpad Tour which like its current Golf Launchpad Classic, is a unique golf
simulation input device that allows users of all ages to play golf in the
convenience of their home, with their own clubs. Not only is the golf
Launchpad Tour available for use with PC and Mac systems like the original
Golf Launchpad Classic, but now users can also tee-off on Sony's PlayStation 3
and play Live Virtual Golf through television set-top boxes.
    Golf Launchpad Tour combines Electric~Spin's ultra realistic golf
simulation technology, with XTVReady(TM) technology from NDS Group Inc.
(NASDAQ - NNDS) to create the ultimate virtual golf experience. XTVReady is a
software module embedded within the world's leading DVR set-top boxes to
enable access to third party peripheral devices, such as the Golf Launchpad
Tour, via the USB port on set-top boxes. With the Golf Launchpad/XTV
Experience, interactive TV becomes an immersive, video enhanced realistic golf
experience while watching a live televised golf event.
    Golf Launchpad Tour, with a processor that is four times faster than the
original, makes gameplay with EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour and with
Electric-Spin's own downloadable swing analyzer with enhanced 3D shot
visualization a truly enjoyable experience.
    Golf Launchpad Tour will be available in spring 2008 through premier
electronics and golf retailers.
