    PROVO, Utah, March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Galtech Semiconductor Materials
 Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board:   GTSM) today announced that it has entered into an
 agreement to obtain the funding necessary to begin the next phase of its
 commercial development program.  Company President and CEO Dr. William F.

 it be necessary to support the activities of the company.

 the resources it needs for product and commercial development.

 beginnings in the development and manufacture of high quality, specialty,
 compound semiconductor materials.  Galtech was reorganized in 1998 to
 manufacture compound semiconductor materials and is based in cadmium telluride
 (CdTe) process and product development.  Crystalline material made from this
 compound is capable of converting solar or other sources of radiant energy to
