         On December 22, 2003, Metatec, Inc. (the "Company") completed the sale
of substantially all of its assets (the "Asset Sale") to MTI Acquisition, LLC
("MTI"), a wholly owned subsidiary of ComVest Investment Partners II LLC
("ComVest II"), and an affiliate of Commonwealth Associates Group Holdings LLC.
The Company, which on October 17, 2003, had filed a voluntary petition for
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code with the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Case No.
03-65902, received final approval from the Bankruptcy Court for the Asset Sale
on December 22, 2003. MTI was the successful bidder for the Company's assets in
the sale process supervised by the Bankruptcy Court. A copy of the asset
purchase agreement between the Company and MTI was filed as Exhibit 99.2 to the
Company's Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November
14, 2003. Since the completion of the sale, MTI has changed its name to
Inoveris, LLC.

         The purchase price for the Company's assets, which consisted primarily
of manufacturing equipment and machinery, office furniture and equipment, other
tangible assets, inventories, customer purchase orders and certain other contact
rights, and certain intangible assets and intellectual property rights, was
composed of several components, including (i) a credit against existing secured
debt of approximately $9.35 million (ComVest II was the Company's largest
secured creditor and assigned a portion of its secured claim to MTI), (ii) a
$1.0 million cash payment to the bankruptcy estate, and (iii) the assumption of
approximately $1.3 million of the Company's liabilities. MTI also assumed
certain executory contracts and leases of the Company. In addition, MTI assumed
the Company's $1.75 million post-petition financing loan.


         As the next step in the Company's Chapter 11 reorganization, the
Company intends to prepare and file a plan of reorganization with the Bankruptcy
Court concerning the complete liquidation of the Company. It is anticipated that
this plan of liquidation will be filed with the Bankruptcy Court prior to June
30, 2004.

         As previously disclosed, it is not anticipated that the shareholders of
the Company will realize any cash or other value for their common shares of the
Company in connection with the liquidation of the Company.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
