The Yanofskys - Richard, president of WowWee Canada - and Peter, president of WowWee USA, have set up a company to buy out the current shareholders of the Optimal Group, of which WowWee is a wholly-owned subsidiary, and have the support of Optimal's directors.

If it goes through, Optimal will go from being a public to a
private company.

The offer of $2.40 per share represents a premium of approximately 50 per cent over the closing price of the Class "A" shares of $1.60 on the NASDAQ, on March 16, 2010.
