Enable IPC Issues Update on Its Third Consecutive Profitable Quarter, New RFID Products, the UWAMIC’s Annual Meeting and the Energy Summit 2012

VALENCIA, CA–(Marketwire – Sep 25, 2012) – Enable IPC Corporation ( PINKSHEETS : EIPC ) today issued an update to stockholders and interested parties regarding its quarterly financial report for the period ending September 30, 2012 discussing what the Company expects will be its third consecutive profitable quarter. The Company also provided updates on its nanoparticle solution for lithium ion battery cathodes, two new RFID-related products to be introduced in the coming months and the upcoming Energy Summit 2012.

Enable IPC Expects a Third Consecutive Profitable Quarter

As Enable IPC continues efforts to develop and commercialize its S/Cap® RFID tag product line, AAO nanopore templates, ultracapacitors and lithium ion battery cathode coating technologies, the Company expects to post its third consecutive profitable quarter, which will end September 30, 2012. Financial results are due to be announced formally on or before November 14, 2012. With continued product and technology development, the Company expects steady growth to continue.

NSF Program Update

After successfully completing a Phase I grant, Enable IPC’s subsidiary SolRayo was awarded a Phase II National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Technology Transfer grant in order to commercialize the Company’s nanoparticle solution which has been shown to enhance the performance of lithium ion batteries.

“It should be understood that, according to the NSF, only 3% of the proposals it receives during the initial cycle get funded at this level,” said Dr. Mark Daugherty, SolRayo’s CEO. “To me, this is not only a validation of the technology, but also of SolRayo’s and Enable’s proven ability to successfully commercialize products.”

Enable IPC to Release Additional RFID-Based Products

The Company expects to release two additional RFID-based products near the end of the year. While details will not be announced for some time, the Company has indicated that these new products will expand the Company’s reach into additional RFID-related markets.

University of Wisconsin’s Advanced Materials Consortium’s Annual Meeting

Enable IPC/SolRayo’s Director of Battery R&D, Dr. Walter Zeltner, will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin’s Advanced Materials Industrial Consortium’s (UWAMIC) annual meeting on October 11th. Dr. Zeltner’s lecture will be on “Energy Through Nanotechnology” and will be held on campus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s School of Engineering. SolRayo is a member of the UWAMIC which facilitates technology transfer, information exchange and interaction between the University and the Consortium’s commercial partners.

Energy Summit 2012

Enable IPC/SolRayo’s David Walker will be one of four panelists discussing the topic of “Ideas to Marketplace” at the Energy Summit 2012 at the Monona Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin on October 30th. Mr. Walker was invited to discuss the process of getting innovative energy ideas to the marketplace — from basic research to start-up businesses to established commercial entities. The discussion will center around what it takes to start and expand a company which intends to provide solutions for a more sustainable use of energy. Summit organizers consider SolRayo a perfect example of this process and have invited Mr. Walker to discuss his experiences in going from the lab to a growing company.

Since 2008, the Wisconsin Bioenergy Initiative (WBI) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has hosted this annual Energy Summit in order to engage and connect bioenergy stakeholders, the general public and students with research and development updates. Early bird registration ($39 for the general public) ends October 19th. Additional information about the Summit can be found here:

Enable IPC Issues Update on Its New S/Cap RFID Tag, Upcoming RFID Products, and Phase II Proposal for the National Science Foundation’s STTR Grant

Enable IPC Corporation (Pinksheets: EIPC.PKNews) today issued an update to shareholders on initial developments of its recently launched rugged solar powered S/Cap RFID tag, upcoming additional versions of the product, and completion of the Company’s proposal for Phase II funding from the National Science Foundation’s STTR Grant.

Since the launch of the ruggedized S/Cap RFID tag in June of this year, Enable IPC has made initial, pilot sales of the tag to customers interested in testing the products within their own operations. Additionally, Enable is working to secure distribution agreements to broaden the sales channels for the S/Cap RFID tag. The Company previously announced an agreement with RFCamp Ltd., for non-exclusive rights to resell and distribute Enable IPC S/Cap RFID tags in South Korea and the Pacific Rim. Enable is negotiating agreements with other potential distributors and expects to make further announcements in the coming weeks.

In addition, product development is underway on the Company’s new on-metal and livestock versions of the S/Cap RFID tag. The on-metal version, along with the recently released S/Cap RFID Tag, is designed to target outdoor asset tracking applications where durable, long lasting tags with long read ranges would be ideal. Potential applications are expected to include oil rigs, transportation, sports, equipment tracking, aerospace, DoD compliance (the largest user of RFID) and much more.

The RFID market is forecast by IDTechEx to reach $5.84 billion in 2011 and livestock tracking is expected to become the largest segment forecasted by IDTechEx to reach nearly $6.5 billion by 2017. To address this growing market Enable is beginning product development on a livestock tracking version of the S/Cap RFID tag. The new product should allow easier and more accurate tracking of livestock and livestock products for more efficient recalls and more efficient farm management.

National Science Foundation Phase II Application Completed

SolRayo, Inc., a subsidiary of Enable IPC Corporation, recently announced completion of Phase I of its Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Under the $150K grant, SolRayo developed a new nanoparticulate based technology to address an issue concerning the degradation of performance of certain lithium-ion (“Li-ion”) batteries, particularly in high temperature applications. SolRayo has recently submitted its proposal for Phase II funding which, if approved, will provide an additional $500,000 of funding for two years beginning in 2012. This funding will be aimed at commercializing the technology. The Company expects to hear the results of its application by the end of 2011.

One reason for the rapid growth in portable electronics over the past few decades has been the availability of rechargeable Li-ion batteries that provide the required high gravimetric and volumetric energy densities. One of the problems with this technology, however, is the relatively high expense of cathode materials compared to other types of rechargeable batteries (like nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride). While the Li-ion industry has grown exponentially over the past 20 years to be valued by Frost & Sullivan at approximately $8.4 billion in 2010, its growth has been mitigated by its relatively high expense. It is hoped that SolRayo’s technology could allow for lower cost cathode materials for Li-ion batteries, making Li-ion price-competitive with other battery technologies and leading to further exponential growth for the industry.
