(NASDAQ: TINY), an early-stage, active investor in transformative companies, notes today's announcement by Bridgelux, Inc., and Toshiba Corporation that they have entered into an agreement under which Bridgelux will sell to Toshiba its industry-leading GaN-on-Silicon technology and related assets, and the companies will strengthen and extend their strategic technology collaboration through an expanded licensing and manufacturing relationship.

Harris & Harris Group Notes Bridgelux and Toshiba Collaboration

New York, NY | Posted on April 23rd, 2013

In January 2012, Bridgelux and Toshiba entered into a Joint Development and Collaboration Agreement for the development of GaN-on-Silicon LED technologies. The success of that relationship was demonstrated by Toshiba's announcements of the achievement of world class performance for 8" GaN-on-Silicon LED wafers and mass production of white LEDs. Both of these milestones were achieved using Bridgelux's crystal growth and LED device technologies as well as Toshiba's advanced silicon processes and manufacturing technologies. Bridgelux's press release may be viewed at bridgelux.com/media-center/events/bridgelux-and-toshiba-collaboration/.

"When we made our initial investment in 2005, we knew that LEDs would become an important growth market and that Bridgelux had novel and differentiated technology. Today's announcement with Toshiba is another step towards validating that decision almost eight years ago," said Douglas W. Jamison, Chief Executive Officer of Harris & Harris Group. "Brad Bullington and the Bridgelux management team should be commended for developing such a strong relationship with Toshiba. This relationship is critical to maximizing the substantial opportunity in the global LED market," added Dr. Alexei A. Andreev, Managing Director at Harris & Harris Group and Bridgelux Board Observer.

Harris & Harris Group is an investor in privately held Bridgelux, Inc.
