For immediate release - (Vancouver, B.C.) Christopher Brough, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mainframe Entertainment, Inc. announced today that the Vancouver-based producer of computer animation has successfully completed its Initial Public Offering of 3 million common shares at CDN $9.75 per share. Mainframe's stock has been called for trading on The Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol MFE.

Net proceeds from the offering will be used for various purposes, including development and financing of a feature-length film, financing of current productions, including a third season of the 3D computer animated television series ReBootTM, acquisition of property, plant and equipment, including software and general corporate purposes.

In conjunction with the IPO, Alliance Multimedia Inc. sold 700,000 Mainframe common shares held by it to reduce its holdings to 7.8% of Mainframes outstanding common shares.

Mainframe Entertainment, Inc. is presently engaged in several projects which include the first ever 100% computer animated weekly television series in the world, ReBoot, now in its third season of production. Web World - ReBoot Season III will begin airing to audiences in various countries around the world starting this July. The company also produces the highly popular television series BeastiesTM (known as Beast Wars outside Canada), also a 100% computer animated production. Beasties is currently in its second season of production.

In partnership with IMAX® Corporation, Mainframe is producing two IMAX RidefilmsTM for the worldwide market. The first Ridefilm, designed specifically for the IMAX motion platform, is due for release later this year.

Mainframe and Electronic Arts, a world leader in the development of computer games, are producing a computer game based on the ReBoot property, Countdown To Chaos, which features real time animation produced at Mainframe. The game is set for its debut at the E3 trade show and convention in Atlanta, Georgia later this month and worldwide release will follow in the Fall of this year.

From Mairi Welman:

If someone wants IPO info or info about investing they should have their broker contact First Marathon Securities in Toronto at 416-869-3707. Our stock is listed as MFE on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and if they want to watch the price they can check it out on - (enter MFE as Symbol, click on Chart)

I have had quite a number of fans calling me here wanting investment info and it just means they are making an unneccesary long distance call when they have to call Toronto anyway. But in fact it really should be their broker who makes the calls and gets the info for them. If they've never invested befoe and don't have a broker their bank can usually reccomend someone.
