CHICAGOŚ January 25, 2001

WizKids has entered into an agreement, subject to due diligence, to buy the Battletech and Shadowrun properties from FASA Corporation. Both WizKids and FASA are pleased that these special properties will be in the capable hands of their co-creator, WizKids CEO Jordan Weisman. WizKids is excited about developing these properties and we will keep the gaming public informed as things develop.
