Forward Looking Statements: Certain statements in this news release may constitute forward-looking statements within the
meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the United States Securities Act of
1933 and Section 21E of the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements may relate to
anticipated financial performance, management's plans and objectives for future operations, business prospects, outcome of regulatory proceedings, market conditions, tax issues and other matters. All statements contained in this news release that do not
relate to matters of historical fact should be considered forward-looking statements, and are generally identified by words such as
"anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "plan," "objective" and other similar expressions. Readers should not place
undue reliance on the forward- looking statements contained in this news release. Such statements are based on management's
beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management and are subject to risks, uncertainties and
changes in condition, significance, value and effect. Other risks include the fact that the Company's sales have been and are
expected to continue to be dependent upon customer capital equipment expenditures, which are, in turn, affected by business
cycles in the markets served by those customers. Other factors include volatility in the semiconductor industry, the risk of order
delays and cancellations, the risk of delays by customers in introducing their new products and market acceptance of products
incorporating subsystems supplied by the Company, similar risks to the Company of delays in its new products, our ability to continue to reduce costs and capital expenditures, our ability to focus R&D investment and integrate acquisitions and other risks
detailed in reports and documents filed by the Company with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and with
securities regulatory authorities in Canada. Such risks, uncertainties and changes in condition, significance, value and effect,
many of which are beyond the Company's control, could cause the Company's actual results and other future events to differ
materially from those anticipated. The Company does not, however, assume any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting such forward-looking statements.
