Braintech, Inc. Revises Interim Quarterly 2007 Reports to More Accurately Reflect Stock Options Expenses

NORTH VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/18/08 -- Braintech, Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI) announced that it has decided to restate certain historical financial statements to record additional non-cash stock-based compensation charges. Braintech, Inc. will restate its financial statements from the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2007, June 30, 2007 and September 30, 2007 as a result of its year-end review. The Company has determined that additional non-cash stock-based compensation should have been recorded with respect to certain stock options granted during the first and second quarter of 2007. Furthermore, as a result of these stock option grants in the first and second quarter of 2007, the company has determined that less non-cash stock-based compensation should have been recorded for the third quarter of 2007. The restatement will result in a net increase in the non-cash expense for the first quarter of 2007 of $380,942, for the second quarter of 2007 of $66,369 and a net decrease in non-cash expense for the third quarter of 2007 of $51,303.

Frederick (Rick) Weidinger, the new Chief Executive Officer and President of Braintech, who joined Braintech in November 2007, indicated that "the need to restate the non-cash charges arose primarily from the Company not having properly applied the various accounting rules that have come into effect recently relating to accounting for non-cash stock and stock option compensation." According to Weidinger, "While our decision to restate all three quarters is an over abundance of caution and the fact that the changes in the existing financial statements for such periods do not impact the cash flow or overall financial health of the Company, it is critical that the Company meticulously comply with all recent accounting pronouncements regarding the accounting of its financial statements." Weidinger also indicated that he has "recently formed a Board of Advisors that will have at least one member who is an accounting professional with substantial accounting experience who, in addition to the Company's new Audit Committee, will also be involved in overseeing the Company's compliance with financial statement reporting requirements on a going forward basis." Weidinger added, "While the restatement puts a bit of pressure on our 2007 financial statements, it relieves a bit of pressure going forward into 2008 and 2009 as a result of recognizing the change in timing of stock option expenses."

The Company will submit its quarterly 2007 restatements within 48 hours and is on schedule to submit its 10-KSB financial statements for the twelve months of 2007 on or about March 28, 2008.
