TERABEAM TO CHANGE CORPORATE NAME TO PROXIM WIRELESS
New Ticker Symbol to be "PRXM"
San Jose, CA, September 4, 2007 — Terabeam, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRBM), a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband municipal wireless networks, today announced that it will change its corporate name to "Proxim Wireless Corporation," the current name of its largest operating unit.
In connection with the name change, the company will also change its ticker symbol from "TRBM" to "PRXM." The company's stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
These changes will be made prior to the open of markets on Monday, September 10, 2007. The company will continue to be known as Terabeam, Inc. and its ticker symbol will remain "TRBM" through the close of markets on Friday, September 7, 2007.
"As well as being our go-to-market brand, the Proxim Wireless name has been synonymous with innovative wireless networking solutions for many years," said Robert Fitzgerald, Chief Executive Officer. "With the recent divestiture of our Ricochet service business and the extent to which the name Proxim is recognized as a pioneer and leader in wireless networking solutions, we feel that the time is right to name our corporate parent Proxim Wireless."
The company's capital stock and business and operations will not be affected by this name change. No vote of the company's stockholders is necessary in connection with these changes. The company's stockholders will not be required to exchange their Terabeam stock certificates for Proxim Wireless stock certificates. The Terabeam stock certificates will continue to represent shares of stock of the company. Stockholders who receive stock certificates after September 10 will receive new Proxim Wireless stock certificates. After September 10, stockholders with Terabeam stock certificates may exchange those certificates for Proxim Wireless stock certificates through the company's transfer agent, Registrar and Transfer Company, if they so desire.
