TULSA, Okla., May 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3DIcon Corporation (OTCBB:TDCP), a developer of volumetric, three-dimensional projection and display technologies, today announced that its Board of Directors will allow its authorization to effect a reverse split of the company's common stock to expire on June 1, 2011.

Due to positive developments at 3DIcon over the last quarter, as described in the Quarterly Review news release distributed on May 10, 2011, the Board has concluded that it is in the best interest of the company and its shareholders not to move forward with a reverse split.

On December 20, 2010, 3DIcon's shareholders had approved the reverse split by giving the Board of Directors sole discretion to elect to implement the reverse split at one of the approved ratios until June 1, 2011.
