Arrowhead subsidiary, Unidym, Inc., appoints semiconductor industry executive as chief executive officer

PASADENA, CA | Posted on June 18th, 2007

"Art has a track record of success in selling and licensing new
products and technologies to electronics manufacturers," said R.
Bruce Stewart, Arrowhead's CEO & Chairman. "His depth and breadth of
executive, technical, and marketing experience in the industry will
be of enormous benefit to Unidym as it executes its business plans."

"I expect Unidym to transform several potentially high volume
applications within the electronics industry," commented Swift.
"Unidym's technology likely will enable more robust touch screens,
lower cost flat panel displays, more efficient thin-film solar cells,
and may even make flexible electronics truly practical. Plus, the
company's IP portfolio provides licensing opportunities as well as
considerable barriers to any future competition. I'm excited to have
the opportunity to contribute to Unidym's success."

Mr. Swift comes to Unidym from Transmeta Corporation, an innovative
semiconductor company in the Silicon Valley, where he most recently
held the position of President and Chief Executive Officer. Prior to
his promotion to CEO, he was Senior Vice President of Marketing. At
Transmeta, Mr. Swift was instrumental in transforming the company's
strategy from selling semiconductor chips to developing and licensing
intellectual property, a change that nearly doubled Transmeta's
revenue in the first two years after the strategy shift.

Prior to Transmeta, Art held senior leadership roles ranging from
President and Chief Operating Officer at an embedded software
startup, Lynuxworks, to Vice President and General Manager at a
variety of large divisions of the established chip-maker Cirrus
Logic. Art has also held senior marketing and engineering positions
with Summit Microelectronics, Sun Microsystems, Digital Equipment,
and Fairchild Semiconductor.

Mr. Swift earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the Pennsylvania
State University.
