eOn Systems and Cortelco

In the U.S. eOn Communications Corporation has two business units: eOn Systems
and Cortelco. The corporation's improved performance is in part attributable
to de-emphasizing traditional voice-centric telephone systems and ACD
platforms, and focusing on intelligent IP end-points, which include voice, as
well as access control and network based paging solutions. This positions the
corporation well in both the growing intelligent building and VoIP markets. In
connection with this new direction, the company is leveraging technical
resources from eOn Systems to identify and deliver products suitable for
Cortelco's well established, nation-wide network of distributors. Cortelco
distributors in turn sell to businesses, government agencies, schools,
healthcare and other institutions. eOn Systems pre-tax losses over the past
three years total $4,106,000. Cortelco's pre-tax earnings over the past three
fiscal years total $3,780,000.

Cortelco Systems Puerto Rico

Cortelco Systems Puerto Rico ("CSPR") became a majority-owned subsidiary of
the Company on June 9, 2010 upon purchase of additional shares of their
outstanding stock. CSPR focuses on technology integration solutions
encompassing collaboration as well as data center efficiencies, network
security and compliance. CSPR's other activities include IT consulting,
disaster recovery, business continuity and private cloud computing solutions.
CSPR's strategic partners include Cisco, McAffee, VMware, NetApp, Checkpoint,
Mitel and Avaya. CSPR delivers solutions through its direct sales and highly
trained technicians. CSPR's pre-tax earnings over the past three fiscal years
total $715,000.

Cortelco Brand

In conjunction with the above described focus, and increasing synergies among
its business units, the Company intends, subject to stockholder approval, to
change its corporate name from eOn Communications to Cortelco.

Mr. David Lee, Chairman of eOn's Board of Directors noted, "Recent positive

maximize the opportunities in front of us."
