Ten Oregon Public Technology Companies to Hold Meetings for the Financial Investment Community This Summer Investors and Analysts Encouraged to Register Today



    PORTLAND, Ore. and WASHINGTON, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Now in its
 fourth year, the Oregon Technology Investor Tour will profile 10 leading
 Oregon public high-tech companies located in the Portland metropolitan
 area. Participating companies will hold onsite meetings for the financial
 investment community during the week of August 7-10, 2006. AeA, the
 nation's largest high-tech trade association, will organize this year's
 tour.
     The Oregon Technology Investor Tour provides a unique opportunity for
 the financial investment community to experience Oregon public technology
 companies first-hand, meet their management teams, view product
 demonstrations, and tour companies. Company sessions will be held at
 individual company sites, with each company holding a 1.5 to 3 hour
 session.
     "We have two main goals for the Oregon Tech Tour," said Fletcher
 Chamberlin, treasurer and investor relations director at FEI Company. "We
 hope to attract an expanded list of potential investors who are interested
 in mid- and small-cap technology companies, and we want to expose those
 investors to a wider group of managers and more hands-on demonstration of
 our products than we can do in standard investor presentations."
     "We have participated in the Oregon Technology Tour since its inception
 in 2003. The event is an effective way to bring more investors to our
 campus to meet management and see demos of our Promentum(TM) and
 Procelerant(TM) product lines. In addition, the event allows the
 participating companies to showcase the overall technology presence we have
 in the Portland area," said Brian Bronson, VP of finance and business
 development at RadiSys Corporation.
     "From the companies' perspective, the tour is a great opportunity to
 band together to raise the profile of Oregon public technology companies
 and to combine efforts to attract a larger financial investment audience to
 the area," said Jennifer Bosze, executive director of AeA's Oregon Council.
     Some of the company presentations will be webcast over the Internet
 (all times Pacific) and posted on the individual company's web site. The
 event will be most beneficial to institutional investors, research
 analysts, buy- side analysts, sell-side analysts, key portfolio managers,
 and venture capitalists.
     In addition to the company presentations, a CEO/Investor Dinner is
 scheduled for Wednesday, August 9.
