VANCOUVER, BC, Canada | Posted on March 1st, 2008

"We are delighted to have reached this important manufacturing and commercialization agreement with Fujikura, one of Japan's leading high technology companies," said Dr. Zerrouk, Chairman, President and CEO of Zecotek. "The Fujikura name is well known and highly respected around the world for its sophisticated manufacturing expertise in fiber and photonic systems and components. Our immediate priorities are to begin the transfer to production of Zecotek's new and unique class of fiber lasers, which have received excellent response from the market, and to establish a joint development program for a next generation of infra-red lasers."

Under the terms of the agreement, all intellectual property, products and processes in the field of lasers and lasers related fiber technologies will be 'pooled' into a joint development, manufacturing and commercializing program. The pool that is created will be for the sole use of the said manufacturing program, with both parties retaining all their respective rights to any and all intellectual property and know-how initially brought into the collaboration. The parties will share in any jointly created intellectual property proportional to their relative contribution. The pool will initially comprise Zecotek's solid state and fiber based lasers and Fujikura's newly developed infra-red fiber lasers.

Under the terms of the agreement, the parties have appointed Fujikura as the manufacturer. The agreement also includes a right of first refusal provision for Fujikura to acquire or take another form of equity position in Zecotek Laser Systems with terms to be mutually agreed.
