Message from the CEO.

Since 2007, Brighter has worked towards its objective of making life easier
for people living with diabetes. Brighter sees that progress is moving faster
than ever. Studies show that by 2020, 50 million devices will be connected to
the Internet. It is estimated that 15% of these devices will consist of
products in the e-health and m-health categories (m-health means mobile
healthcare aided by smartphones).

Brighter's decision earlier this year to cancel the launch of Brighter One was
a necessary strategic choice due to the extremely rapid rate of change we're
seeing in e-health and m-health - a global market valued at USD 160 billion
already this year.

Brighter must always be on the cutting edge of progress and meet the
expectations of tomorrow. Therefore I look forward to developing a better and
more competitive connected product with that will deliver considerably higher
value than Brighter One.

Next generation Brighter One doesn't just make life easier for diabetes
patients - it creates entirely new possibilities for communication between
patients, their healthcare providers, their families and many other
stakeholders. We call this "the Benefit Loop", where the data the patient
creates about his or her health and how he or she is managing the disease is
entered into other systems, guaranteeing a higher quality of treatment. If
the patient wishes, he or she can contribute data and create better and
faster research results, which can be a tremendous benefit to both society
and the pharmaceutical industry.

Brighter is making strategic decisions to deal with this development and
secure its position in the growing m-health market. Important decisions in
this process are the completed development of a new quality assurance system
under the supervision of Tüv Süd; the choice of our development partners
Helbling and Veryday, who are leaders in their fields; and the good
relationships we've built with global IT players with leading expertise in
m-health.

Moreover Brighter collaborates with Microsoft and we investigate the
opportunities in e- and m-health in Sweden together. Having Microsoft along,
we have one of the pieces required to provide tomorrow's connected health and
this is what we educate customers about.

Brighter continues to focus on diabetes treatment. According to IDF, the
International Diabetes Federation, there are 388 million diabetics worldwide.
37% of them - 143 million people - are treated with insulin. IDF estimates
that half of the diabetics in the world have not been diagnosed. 11% of
global healthcare costs are for diabetes. Diabetes is growing by 10-15% per
year. It is estimated that there will be 600 million diabetics in the world
by 2030.

Brighter's mission is to make it easier for these people to manage their
disease, while giving them more freedom through the opportunities that the
connected next generation Brighter One will provide to individual patients
and to society as a whole.
