ROBO-STOX LAUNCHES FIRST BENCHMARK INDEX TRACKING GLOBAL ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION SECTOR

ROBO-STOX™ Global Robotics and Automation Index Empowers

DALLAS - October 22, 2013 - ROBO-STOX LLC, the world leader in developing investment

solutions targeting the robotics and automation space, has launched the ROBO-STOX™ Global
Robotics and Automation Index (Bloomberg: ROBO/ROBOTR), the first benchmark index
dedicated to this burgeoning industry.

"The growing affordability of robotic productivity gains, coupled with expanding technological
capabilities, have moved this sector beyond the 'tipping point,' and the adoption of related
technologies across multiple industries should continue to accelerate," said Rob Wilson, Chief
Executive Officer of ROBO-STOX. "By introducing the first comprehensive and focused
measure of the value of robotics, automation and related technologies, we are giving investors
the world's first benchmark by which to track the growing field of robotics."

The Index consists of 77 domestic and foreign robotics and automation companies that meet
listing criteria for the S&P DJI Global Broad Market Index. Since pure-play robotics companies
are extremely rare, ROBO-STOX evaluates companies across industries, objectives, geographic
locations and market capitalizations to find innovative firms that can fuel productivity and
economic growth for years to come.

The composite includes a mixture of "bellwether" stocks (securities of companies that the
ROBO-STOX Index Committee believes reflect the performance of robotics and automation
firms as a whole) and "non-bellwether" stocks (securities of robotics- and automation-related
companies the Index Committee believes will generate higher revenue as their products and
services grow). The Index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis, and is usually weighted 40 percent
toward bellwether stocks and 60 percent toward non-bellwether stocks. Companies can be
deleted from the Index at any time at ROBO-STOX's discretion.

"The combination of investment experience and in-depth robotics expertise makes ROBO-STOX
uniquely equipped to give investors the truly actionable knowledge they need to fully capitalize
on this sector," said Frank Tobe, Co-Founder of ROBO-STOX and Editor of The Robot Report, a
robotics news portal tracking the worldwide business of robotics. "The ROBO-STOX Global
Robotics and Automation Index provides investors with a cost-efficient and globally diversified
investment vehicle that can take advantage of this emerging field as its importance to the
worldwide economy continues to increase."
