development of magnetic random access memory (MRAM) technology. We believe
that once fully developed, this technology will be suitable for various
applications including, without limitation, Radio Frequency Identification
(RFID) It is anticipated that RFID will be Micromem's first market objective.

wide commercial license issued by the University of Toronto ("UT"). Pursuant
to the terms of the license, Micromem can buy out the balance of its financial
obligations with respect to the patents and technology licensed by UT for a
fixed fee. The MRAM development work was undertaken in accordance with
research collaboration agreements among Micromem, the University of Toronto,
Dr. Harry Ruda and OCE Inc., a not-for-profit corporation supported through
the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Trade's (MEDT) Ontario
Centres of Excellence program.
