GPS Industries has prepared this further statement in response to those inquiries.

“As part of our considerable investment in golf-related technology, we have established the most robust and sophisticated suite of management solutions in the industry and a significant, litigation-tested intellectual property portfolio. Included in this valuable portfolio are patents that relate to distance measurement on golf courses in fourteen countries.

“The acquisition of these patents required a major financial commitment on the part of GPS Industries, Inc. It is because of obligations to our shareholders and licensees-in-good-standing that we determined to take legal action. We are now in litigation and will thus have no further comment until a resolution is reached.
