EKINOPS chosen as one of the most promising European technology companies in the US market

EKINOPS has been chosen for and will participate in the Euro Tech Showcase (www.EuroTechShowcase.com) being held in Redwood City, California, November 18th to November 19th 2008. The event is organized by Avise Partners in association with Dow Jones. Sponsors of the event include: the State of California, Microsoft, Invest in Western France, Avenir Finance, GrowthPoint Technology Partners and Business Wire.

The Euro Tech Showcase is a matchmaking event connecting 50 of the most promising European private technology companies with the leading American technology players. Selected companies are from all over Europe and across the different technology sectors (Telecom & Wireless, Security, Internet & Services, Enterprise Applications, Computing/ Networking/ Hardware, and Entertainment and Media). Among others, top executives from Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, Qualcomm, AT&T, Google, Adobe, HP as well as top tier venture capitalists from Silicon Valley will be at the event. One-on-one meetings are organized in advance according to each company's US strategy to enhance business development and fund raising opportunities.

EKINOPS was pre-selected after extensive review of over 700 companies and was approved by the selection committee based on its strong growth potential in the US market. “EKINOPS already does more than half of its business in the United States” said Didier Brédy, EKINOPS chairman and CEO, “and we are proud to have amongst our references several major US carriers, universities, and enterprises. EKINOPS is focused on the telecommunications equipment market and has introduced numerous leading-edge technologies allowing the company to gain traction quickly in all markets globally, including the United States.”

EKINOPS is a provider of optical transport equipment and is one of the few in the industry that offers a single system for the Metro, Regional, and Long Haul transport segments. This approach allows EKINOPS to address all markets and maximizes its customers’ investment. The selection committee includes senior executives from leading American technology companies and venture capitalists. “We observe a steady appetite from American technology titans for European ventures. Despite California’s leadership in high-tech, Europe still generates unique innovations. EKINOPS along with the remaining of the delegation will show it at the Euro Tech Showcase.” said Jean-Bernard Guerree, Managing Director at Avise Partners.
