Solterra Renewable Technologies Partners with JETRO to Introduce Tetrapod Quantum Dot Semiconductor Materials & Low-Cost, Highly Efficient Tetrapod Quantum Dot Solar Cell Technologies to Japan

TEMPE, Ariz., May 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Quantum Materials Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:QTMM.ob - News) (formerly Hague Corporation) today announced its participation in the Japanese External Trade Organization's (JETRO) program for bringing businesses to Japan. Building upon its tetrapod quantum dots and tetrapod quantum dot solar cells being developed in North America, Solterra has been selected to use JETRO's services and will be able to access potential business partners, recruitment companies, legal advisors and temporary office spaces in Japan.

"As Solterra & Quantum Materials Corp. expand sales efforts, we have been actively looking for partners around the world to promote and distribute our low-cost, highly efficient tetrapod quantum dots and quantum dot solar cells to the global marketplace. We have already established a presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and are now greatly pleased to be selected by JETRO to help open doors for us in Japan," said Stephen Squires, CEO of Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. "With JETRO's help we can now focus on the Japanese market, bringing our innovative technology to their robust electronic manufacturing industry as well as their emerging energy industry. JETRO will be a key medium in the launching our Tetrapod Quantum Dot Materials & Quantum Dot Solar Cell businesses throughout Japan and will be a strategic partner in facilitating the expansion of our market share."

Quantum Materials (Solterra's parent company) develops tetrapod quantum dots for use in a variety of industries including solar, pharmacology, paints, LEDs and lighting systems. Solterra Renewable Technologies focuses on the use of tetrapod quantum dots in an innovative and cost reducing way to produce solar cells. Together, we employ innovative processes to produce a variety or organic and inorganic tetrapod quantum dots using our worldwide exclusive license and proprietary processes. Tetrapods have many unique properties that provide superior performance over traditional quantum dots. Unlike traditional quantum dot manufacturing, Quantum Materials uses novel techniques, which we believe will enable the company to overcome barriers to entry, such as, high volume production in high tech markets. Our technologies offer the ability to produce stand-alone tetrapod quantum dots in large quantities at attractive pricing. As the home of some of the worlds leading consumer electronics manufactures, Japan was a logical next step in executing the company's strategic vision. Through this partnership, we believe we will be able to introduce attractive, innovative, cost reductions in the use of tetrapod quantum dot materials and tetrapod quantum dot based solar cells to Japan. Quantum Materials Corp. and our Tetrapod Quantum Dot technologies have the potential to enable an array of emerging technologies many of which are in the consumer electronics field.
