Second Quarter 2018 Operational Summary and Business Update

"In the second quarter of 2018, hopTo has maintained operation of the GO-Global business providing continued value to our customers with the introduction of our new version to a number of our partners and customers in preparation for the full general availability release of GO-Global 6.0 in September, " stated Jean-Louis Casabonne, interim CEO of hopTo Inc.

"Additionally, during the second quarter of 2018, the hopTo board of directors completed an extensive process of reviewing strategic alternatives for hopTo and the GO-Global business.  These options included possible asset sales, new board and management recommendations, and fundraising possibilities to fund new initiatives.  After careful analysis and consideration, the board has decided to propose a slate of new directors which, if approved by stockholders, will result in new executive leadership.  This new board is intended to take hopTo in a new direction that we believe will deliver positive results for our shareholders while leveraging the continuing operation of GO-Global.  The new board will, if approved by stockholders, assume their duties after the completion of voting in our upcoming annual meeting on August 23, 2018.  The proxy was mailed on or about August 8, 2018 and can be viewed at www.hopto.com under the heading "Proxy Materials."  The outgoing board of directors and executive management recommends that stockholders vote for all of the nominated directors and proposals."
