DRAFT RELEASE - Version 1.0

Ottawa, Canada - November 17, 2004

OZ Optics Limited is pleased to announce that our application to join the United States’ Central Contractor Registry (CCR) has been accepted. This puts OZ Optics into the central database used by government procurement agencies. Since this is a requirement for any company wishing to do business with the government of the United States, OZ Optics is now able to compete on contracts with many of our American counterparts.

With this accreditation, OZ Optics can also pursue military and defense contracts that were previously closed to us, greatly expanding our opportunities.

The strict requirements for accreditation ensure the integrity of the procurement system. Pursuing and achieving this accreditation reflects the integrity of OZ Optics and its commitment to expanding its presence in the marketplace.

OZ Optics is also pleased to announce that a new manufacturing facility will be opening in Tucson, Arizona, in 2005. The administrative office is temporarily located at: 9040 South Rita Road, Suite 1400, Tucson, Arizona 85747, Tel: 1-800-361-5415, e-mail:
