subsidiary of Upgrade International Corp. (OTCBB:UPGD), is pleased to announce
the addition of Mr. Andy Seybold to the UltraCard Inc. Board of Directors.

Mr. Andrew Seybold is the owner and managing editor of Outlook, a leading
publication specialising in wireless communications. He is also responsible for
the foundation of the Wireless Data University, which was established in 1995 as
a wireless tutorial to precede the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association's conferences. Mr. Seybold has over 30 years' experience in all
aspects of mobile communications and has been credited with working as
consultant with major companies in the industry, including Microsoft, Apple,
IBM, HP and others.

"As I mentioned at COMDEX last November, the UltraCard has made it possible to
adapt the data storage capacity of a hard disc drive on to a credit card format.
In this regard, the UltraCard technology is not an evolutionary technology; it
is a revolutionary technology. In my experience, the UltraCard represents a new
technological platform, itself a rare scientific discovery, which will provide a
new tool to various industries, such as portable computers, PDAs, mobile phones,
ATMs, banking, digital photography, entertainment, etc. From the narrow
perspective of mobile communications, the UltraCard solves substantial current
problems in that it provides for significant data storage capacity thereby
lending itself to the design of powerful software applications. Until now,
mobile communications have been hampered by the high cost of data storage. There

is no doubt in my mind that the UltraCard will lead the way in giving the mobile
communications industry an inexpensive, robust and powerful technology which
will open up the gates to e-commerce."
