(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Broenderslev, Denmark, May 7, 2007 -– Asetek, the market leader of thermal

management solutions for semiconductors, announced today that they have
signed a three year manufacturing contract with one of the most respected
thermal cooling suppliers in the computer market; Asia Vital Components

The manufacturing handover process starts when a prototype meets the
customer’s and Asetek requirements; Asetek runs a small scale production
line at their own production facility in Denmark to validate the
manufacturability, quality and performance. From here, Asetek invites AVC
for training to make sure that documentation, drawings, material details,
and construction techniques are fully understood.

The manufacturing is now ready to be handed over to AVC for mass production.
During the first production runs, Asetek provides on-site support in order
to assure that the manufacturing process meets Asetek’s expectations.

AVC has shown the ability to grow and adapt in an ever changing and
competitive market. Their achievements to date have been a testament to
supporting demanding customers with quality, a focus on cost and results
driven by customer requirements. It is these achievements that first led
Asetek to partner with AVC.

“After spending a lot of time planning our production with AVC it is my
pleasure to welcome them on board as a partner,” says Bill Nisbet, VP Supply
Chain of Asetek. “I feel the partnership will benefit both companies,
allowing us to grow together and lead the way for liquid cooling technology
into the OEM market. AVC understands our technology and appreciates the
benefits of our design, while enabling us to scale according to future
demands,” continues Bill Nisbet, VP Supply Chain of Asetek.

“This is a great partnership and collaboration between Asetek and AVC.
Asetek has the strength in Marketing Research and Engineering Design. AVC
has the strength in transferring Engineering Design into Mass Production
Manufacturing. With the partnership and collaboration of two companies, we
will achieve a production of liquid cooling products with high quality and
reliability.” Says Kirk Chi, VP of Quality and Six Sigma of AVC.
