Real-Time Radiography -- Exxim Computing Corporation Merger Completed


10/19/2005 5:12:15 PM

PLEASANTON, Calif., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- REAL-TIME RADIOGRAPHY, INC. (RTR) announced today that it has completed its merger with Exxim Computing Corporation of Pleasanton, CA. The combined company, headquartered in Pleasanton, CA, will continue to conduct a portion of its research and development activities in Israel. The surviving company is Real-Time Radiology, Inc., incorporated in Delaware. RTR is a developer of flat-panel detector panels used in digital X-ray systems sold to OEM medical imaging companies.

"The merger accelerates our ability to develop and bring to market our novel flat panel X-ray detector systems that will provide faster real-time digital imaging, with higher resolution, 50% lower radiation dosing levels, at a price that is 30-50% lower than currently available alternatives," said Shaul Dukeman, President and CEO of Real-Time Radiography. "Our products will address a market of over $1 billion annually in medical imaging applications such as: vascular and cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, orthopedic, urologic, and surgical. These systems also have significant potential applications in the homeland security and non-destructive testing markets."

Horst Bruning Ph.D., formerly the majority shareholder of Exxim, becomes President of RTR's Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) Division as a result of the merger.

Dr. Bruning said, "This merger combines two key proprietary technologies for improved digital imaging -- Exxim's CMOS-based readout circuitry and RTR's Mercuric-Iodide coatings. Together these technologies have the potential for dramatic price/performance improvement in digital imaging, particularly for the type of continuous dynamic digital imaging commonly known as fluoroscopy."

RTR also announced the commencement of a new financing round to further support its strategy of developing turn-key subsystem solutions for the OEM medical imaging industry based on its proprietary technologies. Current investors include a multi-national combination of sophisticated private and institutional investors. The financing round is being managed by Ambient Advisors, LLC, an investment banking and venture investment company based in Los Angeles, California.
