Anark Announces Sale of Entertainment Division and Series 4 Expansion Financing; Hadley Partners advises Anark
May 2008

Boulder, Colorado (May, 2008) Anark Corporation, a leading provider of advanced 3D solutions, announced today that it has sold its Entertainment Software Division, including its award winning Gameface UI software platform. It also completed an additional funding transaction that will allow it to focus entirely on its rapidly growing Enterprise 3D CAD-PLM and Visualization division. Hadley Partners advised Anark on these transactions.

Anark's Entertainment Division has delivered powerful 3D tools and middleware platforms to leading video game and entertainment content developers since 2002. Anark's products helped streamline interactive 3D content creation and deployment for many industry leading customers, such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nvidia.

In mid-2007, Anark launched the Anark Core Platform, targeted at the enterprise CAD-PLM market. This revolutionary software platform dramatically reduces repetitive CAD file conversion and preparation tasks, enabling efficient and secure interoperability between producers and consumers of 3D CAD data for applications such as OEM-Supplier data exchange, technical illustration, and visual-simulation.

“The combined effect of the sale of our entertainment division and our capital raise is that we can really work to accelerate the growth of our enterprise 3D business and our Anark Core Platform in particular,” said Stephen Collins, president and CEO of Anark.  “I would like to thank Hadley Partners for their assistance, their responsiveness and their judgment in connection with these transactions.  They played exactly the role we wanted from an advisor, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
