Abstract:
Nanotechnology Leader Marks Significant Milestone in APO Process

Ecology Coatings, Inc. announces definitive agreement to merge with OCIS Corporation

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI | Posted on May 22nd, 2007

Privately held Ecology Coatings, a leading developer of nano-engineered industrial coatings for cleaner, more efficient manufacturing, entered into a definitive agreement to merge with publicly held OCIS Corporation as part of a alternative public offering (APO) transaction. The merged company, to be named Ecology Coatings, is expected to trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. The management of Ecology Coatings will become the management of the surviving public entity.

According to the merger agreement, OCIS will offer shares of its common
stock in exchange for the outstanding common stock of Ecology Coatings. OCIS
will issue to the shareholders of Ecology Coatings up to thirty-one million
eight hundred thousand (31,800,000) shares of the common stock of OCIS. Upon
completion of the merger, the shareholders of Ecology Coatings are expected
to hold approximately 95.2% of the common stock of the surviving public
entity, while the current shareholders of OCIS will own approximately 4.8%.

Richard Stromback, Chairman of Ecology Coatings, said, "This agreement marks
a significant step in the process of becoming a publicly held company." He
added, "Ecology Coatings is another step closer to being accessible within
the micro cap public market, creating an opportunity for investors to get
involved in an extremely promising emerging technology that combines the
capabilities of nanotech with the benefits of clean tech." The closing of
the merger is targeted for June 2007, subject to customary closing
conditions, SEC review as well as stockholder approval from both companies.
