Card Activation Technologies, Inc. is a Chicago-based company that owns
proprietary patented payment transaction technology used for processing gift
cards, phone cards and other debit purchase transactions. The company is
actively seeking to license its technology to the thousands of current users and

utilize those stored value cards, such as gift and debit cards, infringe its

these infringements. The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia estimated the
prepaid card market to be valued in excess of $181.7 billion in transactions in
2006. According to market forecasts, the prepaid industry will grow to $421.5
