“The economic and societal impact of these technologies will change our lives for the good. We are very excited about acquiring GeckoSystems, Inc. and being involved in helping to create a better twenty-first century tomorrow. In addition, we believe their unique robotic technology will significantly add value and increase the profits for our shareholders,” stated Martin Spencer, Chairman/CEO of International Shoe Manufacturing Corporation.

It will enable us to distribute our suite of robotic technologies to a much broader market which is conservatively estimated to be in the billions of dollars. In conclusion, this acquisition increases the potential and rewards to investors of both companies,” stated George MacLeod, Sr. Vice President of Business Development for GeckoSystems, Inc.
