T H E L E A D E R S O F E C D [PHOTO] S T A N F O R D O V S H I N S K Y President and Chief Executive Officer Stan Ovshinsky pioneered the fundamentally new science of amorphous and disordered materials. In 1960, Stan established ECD to use science and technology based on his game-changing discoveries to solve basic societal problems, by offering innovative solutions for building new industries. Forty-plus years later, Stan's original vision is reality. New technologies, including optical media, digital memory and the solid hydrogen storage materials, have been bolstered as a result of Stan's inventions. As a result of Stan's pioneering inventions, innovation, and vision, these technologies will continue to develop, grow, and change the world through Ovonic Solutions. [PHOTO] I R I S O V S H I N S K Y Vice President and Director Iris Ovshinsky, co-founder of ECD with her husband, has degrees in zoology, biology, and a doctorate in biochemistry. Working as a team, the Ovshinskys pioneered breakthroughs in four major areas : energy generation, energy storage, information systems, and atomically engineered synthetic materials. They have been honored with the American Chemical Society's Heroes of Chemistry 2000 Award. [PHOTO] R O B E R T S T E M P E L Chairman Bob Stempel retired as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer from General Motors Corporation after 34 years with the auto giant. One of the world's foremost automobile engineers, he brings to ECD his vast experience in the auto industry as well as a vision to produce zero-emissions vehicles by the end of this decade. ECD's forward-looking technology, and the intent to pioneer battery development and solid hydrogen storage, brought Bob out of retirement and to ECD. PHOTO OF BOY WITH BUTTERFLY (STOCK ART) 2

W O R L D -C H A N G I N G T E C H N O L O G Y S O L U T I O N S ECD Ovonics is based on the twin pillars of energy and information. Based on our atomic engineering principles, we invent new materials, we invent products, and we invent production technologies. We lead the way to new industries in both energy and information through an integrated solutions approach. Here are some of the ways: Ovonic Solar Solutions offers the enabling technology for the UNI-SOLAR(R) SmartRoof(TM), an all-in-one residential solar roofing system. Ovonic Hydrogen Solutions offers the technology to provide safe, reliable ways to store and transport solid hydrogen for powering fuel-cell or internal- combustion-engine vehicles and other products. Ovonic Battery Solutions' NiMH technology, which started the hydrogen economy, has been used throughout the world. For example, every cell phone or laptop that uses a NiMH rechargeable battery uses our technology. Our NiMH battery technology powers the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius. Ovonic Regenerative Fuel Cell(TM) technology will afford a lower-cost, reliable solution to energy generation. Our continuous-web roll-to-roll technology enables the manufacture of Ovonic Media Solutions' optical media products, such as phase-change rewritable DVDs. Ovonic Information Solutions' Ovonic Unified Memory (OUM) microelectronic technology has been licensed to our joint venture, Ovonyx. Together, we are developing high-density, non-volatile memory for commercial applications.

I N F O R M A T I O N T E C H N O L O G Y Computers are a vital component of modern life. The quest for information offers both great challenges and great opportunities as we develop our game-changing enabling technologies. Our joint ventures and divisions are working on new products and solutions that are revolutionizing the information technology landscape. Ovonic Information Solutions is developing Ovonic Unified Memory (OUM) for commercial applications. Our joint venture called Ovonyx is a part of this development activity. Through Ovonyx, ECD Ovonics is commercializing OUM technology for microelectronic applications in conjunction with industry leaders - joint venture partner and licensee Intel, and BAE Systems and STMicroelectronics, our leading licensees. OUM is a unique, thin-film, solid-state memory invented by Stan Ovshinsky that offers key competitive advantages for the microelectronic-memory and embedded- logic marketplace. Among the products that will use our OUM technology are cellular telephones, digital cameras, networking routers, and data services. With a single device, OUM can replace flash memory, DRAM and SRAM, and it has unique multi-state as well as nonvolatile features. Its lower price also makes it an attractive alternative to the 30-year-old CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) technology. At ECD Ovonics, our Ovonic Media Solutions unit develops phase-change optical memory solutions and proprietary low-cost production processes. A part of this activity is our strategic alliance and joint venture with General Electric (GE) called Ovonic Media. Ovonic Media utilizes our continuous roll-to-roll manufacturing technology to reduce the cost of producing disks. The products incorporate and advance both ECD's phase-change and GE's optical-quality polycarbonate materials. Together, we are expanding the operations to attain volume production. Our approach addresses not only the rewritable DVD market, but the read-only and write-once markets as well. OVONIC MEDIA SOLUTIONS AND OVONIC UNIFIED MEMORY SOLUTIONS IDENTIFIERS CONCEPTUAL DIAGRAM DEPICTING: OVONIC OPTICAL MEMORY FOR REWRITABLE CD AND DVD MEDIA FOR STORAGE OF COMPUTER AND VIDEO DATA; OVONIC UNIFIED MEMORY WHICH MAY REPLACE FLASH, DRAM, SRAM AND EMBEDDED MEMORIES FOR USE IN PCS, VIDEOS, CAMERA AND CELL PHONES 7

PHOTO OF GIRL ON TIRE SWING (STOCK ART) E N E R G Y G E N E R A T I O N Industry projections of the demand for electric power are staggering. These projections indicate that there will be more generating capacity installed in the next 25 years than in the previous 100! The long-term market outlook is excellent. United Solar Systems, Bekaert ECD Solar Systems and ChevronTexaco Ovonic Fuel Cell Company are joint ventures created from ECD divisions to capitalize on this market. Bekaert ECD Solar Systems' products are marketed under the name UNI-SOLAR(R). These products have achieved world records for efficiency for amorphous materials. UNI-SOLAR(R) thin-film photovoltaics (PV) are lightweight, flexible, unbreakable, and radiation-hard. You can drive a nail through them . . . and they still produce electricity! To further reduce costs, we are building a 25-megawatt machine that will increase our production capabilities five-fold, enabling us to produce large commercial systems such as a 400-kilowatt installation that can be upgraded to generate as much as 1 megawatt for powering a ChevronTexaco oil field in California. The ChevronTexaco Ovonic Fuel Cell Company takes advantage of ECD Ovonics' unique, low-cost, proprietary non-noble metal catalyst materials. Ovonic Regenerative Fuel Cell (TM) technology will allow for significantly superior performance (such as instant start and regenerative braking capabilities), and lower costs compared to other technologies such as Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells. E N E R G Y S T O R A G E Hydrogen is the lightest and most common element. As the world moves to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, ECD Ovonics technology will continue to lead the way to the hydrogen economy, tapping into the ultimate non-depleting, non-polluting energy source in the universe. For years, ECD Ovonics technology has allowed us to use hydrogen safely and efficiently in our everyday lives. Our NiMH battery technology is based on hydrogen storage materials that are a totally new approach to energy storage. All you have to remember is that if it says NiMH on your battery, it uses Ovonic technology. Through ChevronTexaco Ovonic Battery Systems, we will continue to develop and commercialize our fully integrated battery systems. These systems are designed primarily for larger applications, such as automotive and stationary power. Our enabling technology is ideal for conventional internal-combustion vehicles' 36/42 volt systems. Further, Ovonic NiMH batteries are the battery of choice for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) of all types - from trucks and buses to cars and scooters. With the formation of ChevronTexaco Ovonic Hydrogen Systems, we will continue to help accelerate the evolution of the hydrogen economy. We offer a safe, reliable way to store and transport hydrogen: using Ovonic metal hydrides. Furthermore, we have a hydrogen infrastructure patent. In automotive applications, hydrogen stored in metal hydrides is a safe, compact system alternative to compressed gas or liquid hydrogen. We have also developed a canister system for smaller applications like generators, scooters, and lawn mowers. Quite simply, the Ovonic Hydrogen Solution is a game-changer. 9
