Hi moosehead5032,

As of March 09, 2005, Sequoia Voting Systems is owned by
Venezuelan-owned company, Smartmatic.

"One of the nation's largest election service and technology
providers, Sequoia Voting Systems today announced its combination with
Smartmatic, a Boca Raton, Florida-based leader in highly-secure
electronic voting solutions. As part of the new entity, Sequoia Voting
Systems will continue to operate under its current name in all
"With the combination of Sequoia and Smartmatic, both proven
innovators with accomplished track records in either the U.S. or
abroad, we are creating the first truly global leader in providing
voter-verified electronic voting solutions," said Jack Blaine,
President, Smartmatic.
"Sequoia was previously held by U.K.-based De La Rue, PLC. De La Rue
has decided to exit the voting system market to focus on its core
competencies in producing bank notes, travelers' checks and cash
handling equipment. Eureka Capital Markets, LLC served as De La Rue's
exclusive financial advisor on the transaction. Smartmatic, a
privately-held firm, acquired Sequoia in order to form a new global
leader in providing a full range of electronic voting and election
services solutions."
