Intrinsyc Completes Acquisition of NMI Electronics

6/28/2002 - Intrinsyc Software, Inc. (TSX:ICS), today announced the acquisition of 100% of the outstanding shares of NMI Electronics Ltd., a privately held company.

NMI is a leader in the development of Windows CE-based products, PDA and smart phone solutions, and a Microsoft Windows Embedded Gold Partner. The acquisition extends Intrinsyc’s technology competencies, provides excellent cross-selling opportunities, and expands sales distribution channels in Europe and Asia.

Intrinsyc will pay an initial cash consideration of CAD$6 million, with subsequent payments on the first and second anniversaries of the deal signing, contingent upon NMI achieving certain performance-oriented criteria. To achieve maximum payment of CAD$15 million, NMI will have to achieve revenues of CAD$7.1 million in year one, and CAD$8.6 million in year two. The second and third payments may consist of a combination of cash and Intrinsyc shares, to be determined at a future date.

“This deal demonstrates our commitment to building long-term value for Intrinsyc shareholders, and is consistent with our business strategy to secure additional market share and expand our international presence,” said Neil McDonnell, President and Chief Executive Officer, Intrinsyc Software, Inc. “We are very excited to welcome NMI and their team to the Intrinsyc family,” added McDonnell.

NMI brings significant complementary technology and cross-platform expertise to Intrinsyc, which immediately expands sales opportunities for the Company. NMI has considerable experience implementing multi-processor platforms such as Intel, Hitachi, Texas Instruments, Toshiba and Samsung technologies, and extensive expertise in wireless and mobile telephony solutions. Combined, the two companies are now able to offer customers a broad depth of experience in multi-processor and multi-OS (operating system) platforms, including Linux and Microsoft embedded solutions.

Intrinsyc will integrate NMI into its operations, with Alan Scott leading the European business unit, reporting to Neil McDonnell. Key NMI principles have signed long-term employment contracts with Intrinsyc and all NMI employees will be retained by the company.
