Microsoft Corp. that will direct significant resources towards the 
development, marketing and support of an enhanced set of VerticalNet's 
hosted supplier enablement product offerings for medium and small 
businesses. VerticalNet will combine its rich supplier network base 
with the Microsoft platform, and Microsoft bCentral small business 
hosted applications, to deliver on its plan to become the leader in 
the creation of private marketplaces that connect large buyers to 
networks of enabled suppliers.

by VerticalNet for becoming a leader in the creation of private 
marketplaces that connect large buyers to networks of enabled 
suppliers. VerticalNet is leveraging its heritage and core technology 
assets to capitalize on enterprises' needs for supplier enablement, a 
market that has been largely ignored by buy-side and e-marketplace 
vendors. Unlike other B2B e-commerce software providers who primarily 
focus on buyers' needs, VerticalNet has proven expertise in providing 
value to commerce-enabled suppliers.  
VerticalNet also recently announced its financial results for the 
quarter ended March 31, 2001, reporting year-over-year triple-digit 
growth and restating its intent to reach positive cash earnings by the 
fourth quarter of 2001. "We are pleased to have beaten projections for 
the quarter despite the current economic environment and we have taken 
actions to aggressively reduce expenses to ensure that we meet our 
goal of attaining positive quarterly cash earnings this year. We 
remain an agile business that has proven its ability to quickly and 
successfully react to evolving market and customer needs. I look 
forward to executing our vision to become the leading creator of 
private marketplaces that connect large buyers to networks of enabled 
suppliers," stated VerticalNet's President and CEO Mike Hagan.  
DynaGen, Inc. (OTCBB:DYGN) 
Previous Close: Up 25% to $0.29 on vol. 2,213,900 
DynaGen Inc. (OTCBB:DYGN) announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, 
Able Laboratories, has commenced shipment of Methylphenidate tablets - 
the generic equivalent of Novartis' Ritalin(R). DynaGen immediately 
began manufacturing the drug, which has an estimated $185 million 
market, at Able Laboratories following its April 3, 2001 receipt from 
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of its Abbreviated New Drug 
Application (ANDA).  
"We have been receiving considerable interest in the marketplace 
for our new product and have begun answering these demands by shipping 
the product in a rapid manner," stated C. Robert Cusick, Chairman and 
Chief Executive Officer of DynaGen, Inc. "Our ability to implement 
shipping of this product so quickly after receiving approval shows how 
our investments in our manufacturing facilities are paying off and 
allowing us to quickly produce and ship new products."  
DynaGen, Inc. is a rapidly growing developer and manufacturer of 
generic pharmaceuticals. The focus of the Company is to develop 
products that offer attractive market opportunities within selected 
niche markets of the generic drug industry. In addition to the five 
products it is currently selling, the Company has thirteen products at 
various stages of FDA approval. The Company has recently completed its 
transition from a manufacturing and distribution company into a sole 
development and manufacturing entity. As part of the Company's 
commitment to its new strategic focus, the Company will change its 
name from DynaGen, Inc. to Able Laboratories, Inc. shortly.  
Star Scientific, Inc. (Nasdaq:STSI) 
Previous Close: Up 137% to $3.25 on vol. 1,176,000 
Star Scientific Inc. (Nasdaq:STSI) announced the execution of a 
series of multi-year contracts with Brown & Williamson Tobacco 
Corporation ("B&W")1. Under the contracts, B&W will continue to 
purchase at least 15 million pounds of very low-TSNA2 StarCured(TM) 
tobacco leaf during each of the next three years through Star 
Scientific's StarCured(TM) tobacco farmers' curing program, with the 
right to continue to purchase additional StarCured(TM) tobacco after 
the initial three-year period.  
The flagship hard tobacco product that Star plans to introduce, 
brand-named ARIVA(TM), has been developed to meet the needs of adult 
smokers when they are in smoke-free environments. ARIVA(TM) also is 
directed to conventional smokeless product users who want the option 
of choosing a smokeless tobacco product that contains less 
cancer-causing toxins (TSNAs) than conventional products, while 
avoiding the need to expectorate. The compressed tobacco 
"cigalett"(TM) pellets can provide this alternative in the workplace, 
during travel and in other environments.  
Management believes Star will be the first company in the U.S. to 
manufacture a tobacco product in childproof packaging. ARIVA's(TM) 
production will be coordinated through Star's Chase City, Virginia 
tobacco processing facility. Finally, Mr. Williams noted that Star was 
gratified that B&W has committed to continue significant purchases of 
StarCured(TM) tobacco over the next three years, with the right to 
purchase additional StarCured(TM) tobacco after that initial period. 
Those tobacco supply commitments fortify Star's key relationships with 
the participating StarCured(TM) tobacco farmers who have been crucial 
to the company's ability to change dramatically the way tobacco is 
processed in the United States.  
Celerity Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:CLRT) 
Previous Close: Up 19% to $0.22 on vol. 1,287,700 
Celerity Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:CLRT) announced that it has been 
selected by the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) to provide a 
Digital Education System (DES) for the Avon Lake High School facility. 
The system will include one Celerity CTL 9500(TM) Digital Video Server 
and approximately 100 Celerity T 6000(TM) Digital Set Top Boxes, as 
well as other related hardware and software. The sale is valued at 
approximately $175,000 and was once again made by Kidston 
Communications, a national distributor for Celerity which is 
especially strong in Ohio and the Midwest.  
"Ohio, through the Ohio School Facilities Commission, continues to 
play a leadership role in the adoption of modern digital technologies 
for student education and staff training," said Kenneth Van Meter, 
President and CEO of Celerity. "We are honored to be selected once 
again to provide the hardware and software system for Avon Lake High 
School. I don't know of any technology that is better poised to 
significantly improve the quality and quantity of educational 
materials and content than digital video, and we feel that our system 
offers great value to schools like Avon Lake."  
"The Commerce Department's preliminary reading on GDP was taken by 
many analysts as the best indication to date that the economy will be 
able to stave off dipping into a recession. Accordingly, expectations 
of further aggressive rate cuts from the Federal Reserve are waning. 
The Fed next meets on May 15 to mull over monetary policy, with many 
prognosticators shifting rate cut predictions from a more aggressive 
50-basis-point cut, to a more moderate 25-basis-point forecast," 
stated Peter Antipatis. More is available at
