solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications announced today
that Eric Melka has resigned from the Company's Board of Directors.
Eric Melka, Redline's CEO since January 2010, has been dealing with a

absence as announced on August 8th, 2013 and subsequently to resign as

for Redline, and we are saddened that his tenure as a Board Member and

Beaubien, Redline's board chairman. "On behalf of the entire Board, I
want to express our appreciation of his contributions to Redline and
the Board. We wish him all the best in returning to full health."
