Jan 11, 2011 (03:01 PM EST)


SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoMagic Corporation (Pink Sheets: NMGC) has announced that it has retained the services of Instream Partners, LLC, a leading investment banking firm, to assist NeoMagic in soliciting, structuring and negotiating financing opportunities, which may include a private placement.

"We are pleased to have Instream Partners assist us in obtaining development funding for a new suite of USB 3.0 based semiconductors that we expect to include UFD (USB flash drive) and SSD (solid state drive) controllers," said Syed Zaidi, President and CEO of NeoMagic Corporation.  Mr. Zaidi continued, "Any funding received will allow us to expand our in-house development team and execute our strategic commitment to bring new technologies to market.  We believe Instream's involvement will accelerate the achievement of our goal of bringing digital storage to market."

"As these high performance media technologies continue to gain acceptance in consumer and enterprise markets, I believe NeoMagic is positioned to be a significant competitor," said David Tomasello, Managing Director of Bluestone Financial, LTD., the Company's largest investor, and Chairman of NeoMagic Corporation. He continued, "Instream brings a unique expertise in the banking and semiconductor sectors that should enable NeoMagic to expand its investor base. Bluestone remains committed as a long-term investor of NeoMagic."

"Instream has strong domain expertise in the technology sector," said John Schlesinger, Managing Director of Instream Partners. "We are excited to work with NeoMagic's management team and Board of Directors to obtain funding to support their development in these high growth markets."
