e.Digital's $1.1 Million Financing to Accelerate New OEM Business

6/12/2003 - e.Digital Corporation (OTC: EDIG) announced that it received over $1.1 million in funding through the sale of approximately six million common shares. The shares were sold at $0.19 to 18 investors. Many of these investors have purchased e.Digital shares on the open market and participated in prior equity and debt offerings. This transaction terminates the offering of shares by the Company pursuant to the prospectus dated April 23, 2002, as amended.

"We are on track to complete and deliver on three major OEM contracts (Softeq/Hewlett Packard, Eclipse by Fujitsu Ten and APS) this summer, with the Softeq/Hewlett Packard product scheduled for completion and delivery this month," said Fred Falk, CEO of e.Digital. "We and our customers are very excited about the function and look of these three state-of-the-art electronic products. All three contracts have the potential for larger follow-on orders and further product and business opportunities."

Falk continued, "We are also working on important new business developments. A rapidly growing number of companies are seeking a domestic solution for new product development. This financing improves our competitive position and we believe it will yield major new OEM business, increase corporate visibility, and support increasing quarterly revenues."

The Company also announced the appointment of Jo Ann Platt as Marketing Communications Manager to replace Wendy Ravenel. Ms. Ravenel resigned for personal reasons after almost nine years of service to e.Digital.
