Arrowhead and Subsidiary, Unidym, Selected to Present at ThinkEquity Private Company and Venture Capital Summit

PASADENA, CA | Posted on May 4th, 2007

A life-long entrepreneur, Mr. Stewart has started and funded more than eighteen companies and has taken several of them to the public markets. His capital market experience spans thirty years and he has raised substantial capital for both public and private companies. He is known for his success in building value for shareholders and innovating novel strategies in corporate finance. Prior to founding Arrowhead Research, Mr. Stewart founded Acacia Research Corporation which he took public in 1995. During Mr. Stewart's eight-year tenure, Acacia built a portfolio of subsidiary companies operating in the areas of biotechnology, media technology licensing, direct marketing and early internet applications, and reached a market cap of close to $1 billion. Mr. Stewart gained much of his knowledge and experience in corporate finance as President of Annandale Securities from 1977 to 1992, an investment banking firm and registered broker dealer.

Mr. Olson's presentation entitled "Carbon Nanotechnology for Electronics" will highlight Unidym's progress in commercializing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for applications in the electronics industry. Mr. Olson will also describe Unidym's first two products: CNT-based transparent electrodes for flat panel displays and CNT-based thin film transistors.

Mr. Olson has both technical and business experience in the semiconductor industry and is a veteran of both early and late stage ventures. Previously, Mr. Olson led Aonex Technologies, an Arrowhead subsidiary developing novel materials for the blue LED industry. Mr. Olson also served in engineering and management positions at Silicon Valley Group Lithography (acquired by ASML), a semiconductor capital equipment provider, and was a strategy consultant for The Boston Consulting Group. He received engineering degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MBA from The Harvard Business School.
