Hansen Gray Announces Agreement to Acquire up to 100% of iCurie Lab Holdings Company to Change Name and Stock Symbol To Reflect New Focus

    ATLANTA, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hansen Gray & Company, Inc.
 (OTC: HGCP) announced today that it has entered into an agreement in principle
 for an option to acquire up to 100% of iCurie Lab Holdings, Ltd., parent
 company of iCurie Lab, Inc., a rapidly-growing nanotechnology company based in
 Seoul, Korea.
     Hansen Gray, a publicly traded venture capital firm previously entered
 into an agreement to purchase as much 45% of iCurie Lab Holdings, Ltd.  The
 option for Hansen Gray to purchase the remaining 55% of the privately-held
 company will be contingent upon Hansen Gray's securing substantial additional
 financing to support iCurie's business plan and growth objectives along with
 certain requisite shareholder and regulatory approvals.
     The iCurie Cooled(TM) Micro Cooling System (ICMCS), a patented
 nanotechnology cooling system for microchips, represents a critical
 advancement in overcoming one of the most significant challenges to ever-
 increasing computer processing speeds -- heat.   In May, the Company's ICMCS
 passed performance testing and received certification from LG Electronics,
 Inc. (KOREA: 066570), one of the top five manufacturers in the world of OEM
 PCs.  Details of the test results and full technical printout of the LG
 certification are available on the iCurie website, http://www.iCurie.com .
     In addition to receiving LG certification, iCurie has a manufacturing
 partnership agreement with Taiwan-based AVC (Asia Vital Components Co., Ltd.)
 the world's largest supplier of CPU (Computer Processing Units) cooling
     Mark E. Gray, CEO of Hansen Gray & Company said, "We are extraordinarily
 confident in the iCurie microchip cooling technology.  The issue of how to
 manage heat while increasing processing speed is a problem of tremendous
 proportion being faced today in a broad array of consumer electronics
 including computers.  We believe iCurie has the solution.  As such, we
 consider focusing primarily on our investment in iCurie to be in the best
 interest of our shareholders."
     Upon finalization of the agreement and completion of the necessary
 filings, Hansen Gray will change its corporate name to iCurie Lab Holdings,
 Ltd. and apply for a new Cusip number.
     With respect to Hansen Gray's other technology holdings, the Company
 intends to retain the intellectual property assets of Voicetel Systems Inc., a
 developer of voice recognition software, primarily for the smart home industry
 and Cyberquest Partners Inc., which has developed proprietary imaging systems
 and integrated chip technology that combines to form a system and a method for
 virtual reality.
