Advance Nanotech Sells Singular ID Stake for $1.19 Million

New York, NY | Posted on January 3rd, 2008

As was announced on December 27, 2007, Advance Nanotech, Inc., plans to refocus its business primarily on the growing chemical detection industry. In doing so the Company plans to redirect its efforts away from the development of early-stage nanotechnologies in order to become an operating company dedicated to the continued commercialization of its next generation chemical detection products. The Company's sale of Singular ID represents the divestiture of a non-core asset, in furtherance of this objective.

"The sale of our Singular ID stake represents the conclusion of a very successful investment for the Company. In little over two years, Advance Nanotech played a significant role as an active investor in Singular ID during which Singular ID launched a pivotal product. The Enxure product enabled Singular ID to broaden its range of customers to include the automotive, fashion and pharmaceuticals markets with precision tagging and ID capabilities. The investment gain Advance Nanotech has achieved is testament to the returns that are possible from early stage technology investment given judicious selection and continuous oversight," commented Magnus Gittins, Chairman of Advance Nanotech Inc. "With the conclusion of our recent financing, together with the monetization of Singular ID, we have secured approximately $7.7 million in new capital for the Company which we believe will be sufficient to carry us to both positive cash flow and profitability during the second half of calendar 2008."
