Brighter AB : acquires the company behind jDome Bike Around.

Brighter consolidates its position in data-driven health care and mHealth. The
acquisition of Division By Zero AB (publ) expands Brighter's IP portfolio
with unique technology for, among other things, feedback human response to
targeted stimuli. Thereby we add another piece to the Benefit Loop(TM),
Brighter's platform to collect, process, analyze and return data in the
treatment chain for continuously improved treatment compliance and
recommendation.

Division By Zero's technology is already used in the company's product
jDome®BikeAround®, which quickly has become popular for activation and
rehabilitation at various medical facilities. The user bikes in a sphere
where any environment can be projected around through Google Street View. The
implementation was done in collaboration with Google's developers.

"Division By Zero is a company with unique expertise that adds an important
piece to the Benefit Loop, Brighter's platform to collect, process, analyze,
and return data in the treatment chain for continuously improved treatment
compliance and recommendation. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality
(VR) technology is attracting many investors and companies like Google,
Facebook and Nokia have already started fighting over the market. See for
example Oculus that was acquired by Facebook or Google's investments in Magic
Leap. Combining AR and VR with the collection and analysis of data can be
very interesting", says Truls Sjöstedt, Brighter's CEO and founder.

"There are not many companies that Google's chairman Eric Schmidt refers to in
public, but Division By Zero is one of these few. The work that Division By
Zero's Head of Development John Nilsson and his team execute has also
attracted considerable interest from many other world-leading companies,
including Intel."

The innovator, and founder of the Division By Zero, John Nilsson, is a
creative software developer whose quest for the perfect gaming experience has
led to the health product BikeAround, which the company developed together
with Hälsoteknikcentrum Halland. Division By Zero has captured the interest
from a variety tech companies over the years.

"I look forward to working with Brighter's skilled developers and expand what
is possible to include and extract from the Benefit Loop", said John Nilsson,
Head of Development and founder of Division by Zero.

"Brighter vision of data-driven healthcare with the user's own body and soul
at the center is extremely strong. With the technology we developed based on
Microsoft's Kinect technology, we've created many new opportunities to get
important information from users that can be used to, among other things,
adjust therapies, medication and improve tracking."
