(OTCBB:NEWY). In the merger, Tremor Entertainment shall merge with and into a wholly owned subsidiary of New Systems Inc., with Tremor being the surviving corporation. New Systems will change its name to Tremor Entertainment upon the effectiveness of the proposed merger.
"We have taken this step to further our natural growth and expansion plans," stated Mr. Steven Oshinsky, President and CEO of Tremor. "With the introduction of PlayStation 2 last year, and the upcoming release of Nintendos Gamecube and Microsofts Xbox, (Nasdaq:MSFT), the digital interactive entertainment industry is poised for major growth. We see substantial opportunity ahead for us in several new areas with our game division driving the marketing of ancillary products based on proprietary intellectual properties. With access to the capital markets we can fund the development of these properties in house while seeking partners for their marketing and distribution. Continued strength in the stocks of major game companies like Electronic Arts, (ERTS), and THQ Inc., (THQI) are also suggesting that continued growth is expected in the game sector, and it is into this strong and expanding environment that we have chosen to take Tremor public."
