MathStar Responds to Merger Proposal From PureChoice Inc.

HILLSBORO, Ore., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- MathStar, Inc. today acknowledged receipt of an unsolicited proposal by PureChoice, Inc. to enter into a merger transaction with MathStar. The proposal revises PureChoice's proposal set forth in its letter to MathStar dated October 23, 2008, which MathStar rejected. MathStar has also rejected the revised proposal.

In a letter delivered to PureChoice today, MathStar explained that its Board has carefully considered and analyzed PureChoice's revised merger proposal. The Board concluded that PureChoice's revised proposal was not fundamentally different than the proposal described in PureChoice's letter dated October 23, 2008. The amount of the proposed consideration is not sufficient to support entering into the proposed merger transaction, and PureChoice does not fit the profile for a merger candidate previously established by MathStar's Board.

For these and other reasons, the MathStar Board rejected PureChoice's merger proposal as not being in the best interests of MathStar's stockholders, and it reiterated the Board's commitment to pursue its declared strategy.
