COMPANY OVERVIEW
 
     Immersion Corporation was incorporated in California in 1993 and
reincorporated in Delaware in 1999. References to the "Company" and "Immersion"
refer to Immersion Corporation. The Company's principal executive offices are
located 2158 Paragon Drive, San Jose, California 95131. The Company's telephone
number is (408) 467-1900. The Company's website is www.immersion.com.
 
     We develop hardware and software technologies that enable users to interact
with computers using their sense of touch. Our patented technologies, which we
call TouchSense(TM), enable computer peripheral devices, such as joysticks, mice
and steering wheels, to deliver tactile sensations that correspond to on-screen
events. We currently focus on licensing our intellectual property for these
touch-enabling technologies to manufacturers of computer peripherals in the
computer entertainment and general purpose personal computing markets. Our
objective is to proliferate our TouchSense technologies across markets,
platforms and applications so that touch and feel become as common as graphics
and sound in the modern computer user interface.
 
     We hold 38 U.S. patents covering various aspects of our hardware and
software technologies and have over 125 patent applications pending in the U.S.
and abroad. To date, we have licensed our intellectual property to more than 16
companies, including Microsoft and Logitech, which incorporate our patented
touch-enabling technologies, together with other technologies necessary for
computer gaming peripherals, into joysticks, gamepads and steering wheels that
they manufacture. To target the computer mouse market, we have licensed our
intellectual property to Logitech to manufacture the first touch-enabled
computer mouse incorporating our hardware and software technologies. Logitech
began marketing and selling its touch-enabled mouse during the fourth quarter of
1999.
 
INDUSTRY BACKGROUND
 
     Early computers had crude user interfaces that only displayed text and
numbers. These machines, commonly known as "green screen" computers, were
effective at processing data but did not communicate information in an engaging
and intuitive manner. As a result, computing was used primarily in selected
scientific and business applications. In the early 1980s, computers began to use
graphics and sound to engage users' perceptual senses more naturally. Graphics
technologies brought pictures, charts, diagrams and animation to the computer
screen. Audio technologies enabled sound and music.
 
     By the late 1980s, graphics and audio technologies had spread to consumer
markets, initially through computer gaming applications. By the early 1990s, the
penetration of graphics and sound into consumer markets had expanded beyond
gaming into mainstream productivity applications, largely due to the
introduction of the Windows 3.0 graphical user interface. By the late 1990s, the
proliferation of graphics and audio content helped transform the Internet into a
highly interactive and popular medium for communication, commerce and
entertainment.
 
                                        3

<PAGE>   4
 
     The evolution from alphanumeric characters to the modern user interface is
widely considered to be one of the great advances in computing. By presenting
content in ways that engage the senses more fully, computers were "humanized,"
becoming more personal, less intimidating and easier to use. These improvements
helped expand the audience for computer technologies, encouraging people to use
software for business, home and entertainment applications. Today, graphics and
audio technologies are standard features of most computer systems.
 
     While most modern computers realistically present information to the senses
of sight and sound, they still lack the ability to convey content through the
sense of touch. The absence of touch is a substantial barrier to making computer
use more natural and intuitive. For example, current computing environments do
not allow online shoppers to feel physical attributes of products prior to
purchase and do not permit students to feel physical concepts like gravity and
magnetism. Software designers strive to develop compelling applications for
users to see and hear, but do not provide applications that engage users' sense
of touch. As a result, software is not as engaging and informative as it would
be if tactile sensations were conveyed.
 
     The absence of touch and feel in modern computers also limits user
productivity. The Windows interface, for example, is based on a physical
metaphor: users must move the cursor on a screen to drag, drop, stretch and
click. However, users must manipulate graphical elements without the benefit of
tactile feedback. As a result, using a cursor is visually taxing. Selecting an
icon, clicking on a hyperlink or grabbing the edge of a window are common tasks
that would be easier to perform if users could feel the engagement of their
cursor with the intended target.
 
     Like sight and sound, touch is critical for interacting with and
understanding our physical surroundings. Technology that brings the sense of
touch to computing has the potential to further humanize the computer and
increase the ease, usefulness and enjoyment of computing.
 
OUR SOLUTION
 
     We develop and license technologies that allow computer users to touch and
feel computer content. In diverse applications like computer gaming, business
productivity, medical simulation and surfing the Web, our technologies enable
software applications to engage a user's sense of touch through common
peripheral devices such as joysticks, steering wheels, gamepads and mice.
Joysticks, steering wheels and gamepads incorporating our technology are
currently manufactured and sold by our licensees. We have also licensed our
intellectual property to Logitech which has incorporated our touch-enabling
technologies into a computer mouse that it began selling during the fourth
quarter of 1999. Logitech is currently marketing the mouse for use in gaming and
Web applications.
 
     Our hardware and software technologies work together to enable peripheral
devices to present touch sensations. Our patented designs include specialized
hardware elements such as motors, control electronics and mechanisms, which are
incorporated into common computer peripheral devices such as mice and joysticks.
Driven by sophisticated software algorithms, these hardware elements direct
tactile sensations corresponding to on-screen events to the user's hand. For
example, when a touch-enabled mouse is used to lift a "heavy" object within the
computer application, software directs the mouse's motors to apply resistance to
that motion to create a realistic simulation of weight. By contrast, when the
cursor is moved against a "soft" object, the motors apply gradations of force to
simulate the soft compliance of the object.
 
     Key benefits of our solution include:
 
          Complete Solution.  We offer a complete technical solution that allows
     our licensees to incorporate our touch-enabling technologies into their
     computer peripheral device products such as mice, joysticks, steering
     wheels and gamepads at a reasonable cost and in a reasonable time frame.
     Our technical solution also allows software programmers and Web site
     developers to add touch-enabling elements to their applications. Our
     software automatically enables users to feel the basic user interface
     features of software applications running on Windows 98 without additional
     developer support. Our software enables users to feel basic Web page
     features represented through standard Hypertext Markup Language (HTML),
     Java
 
                                        4

     and ActiveX protocols. In addition, we provide authoring tools that permit
     software developers to quickly design and incorporate custom touch
     sensations into their own applications.
 
          Compatible with Industry Standards.  We have designed our hardware and
     software technologies to be compatible with leading hardware and software
     standards. Our technologies operate across multiple platforms and comply
     with such standards as DirectX, Microsoft's entertainment application
     programming interface, and USB (Universal Serial Bus).
 
          Cost-Effective Solution.  We have developed component technologies
     that permit peripheral device manufacturers to design and manufacture
     peripheral devices that incorporate our touch-enabling technologies more
     cost effectively than would otherwise be possible. We have also developed
     and licensed sophisticated software drivers and firmware that permit our
     licensees to avoid substantial development costs and accelerate product
     introduction.
 
          Presents Information to the Sense of Touch.  It is difficult to
     communicate physical properties such as texture, compliance, weight and
     friction solely through words or pictures. Our technologies allow computer
     users to use their sense of touch to perceive these physical properties in
     a way that is instantly understandable and intuitively accessible. Our
     technologies significantly improve the ability of software to communicate
     to users the physical features of a product, the physical properties of a
     scientific or engineering principle or the physical response of an object
     in a simulated gaming environment.
 
          Improves User Productivity in Cursor Manipulation Tasks.  Computer
     users routinely select items on the screen using a cursor. This task
     involves precisely positioning a cursor on a desired target like a menu or
     a hyperlink, and then pressing a button to indicate that the target should
     be selected. With a traditional mouse, users can confirm only through
     visual feedback that the correct item has been selected. This task demands
     significant visual attention, slows execution and distracts the user from
     other activities. With a touch-enabled mouse, the user can feel each
     encounter between the cursor and an item on the screen. For example, the
     edge of a window feels like a groove carved into a desktop; when the cursor
     slides into the groove, users feel a distinct physical engagement. Users
     interpret these sensations intuitively because of their similarity to
     real-world encounters. When selecting icons, scrolling through a menu or
     clicking on a hyperlink on a Web page, the ability to feel the encounter
     greatly facilitates interaction.
 
          Increases Satisfaction and Enjoyment of the Computing Experience.  By
     engaging the user's sense of touch, our technologies have the potential to
     make a variety of software applications more interesting, engaging and
     satisfying. In the personal computer gaming market, our licenses, such as
     Logitech and Microsoft, are currently manufacturing and selling products
     incorporating our intellectual property. We believe that our technologies
     will increase user satisfaction across many additional applications,
     including business productivity, engineering, education and e-commerce.
 
          Enhances the Effectiveness of Simulation and Training
     Applications.  Some computer applications, such as medical training,
     require realism to be effective. Companies and institutions have begun to
     replace traditional means of surgical training with more accessible and
     versatile simulation systems for training doctors to perform surgical
     procedures. Our technologies increase the effectiveness of these systems by
     providing tactile feedback that simulates what a doctor would feel when
     performing an actual procedure. Our technologies are used in training
     systems for laparoscopic surgery, endoscopic surgery and catheter
     insertion.
 
STRATEGY
 
     Our objective is to proliferate our TouchSense technologies across markets,
platforms and applications so that touch becomes as common as graphics and sound
in the modern computer interface. We intend to maintain and enhance our position
as the leading provider of touch-enabling technology in consumer markets by
employing the following strategies:
 
          Pursue Royalty-Based Licensing Model.  We believe that the most
     effective way to proliferate our touch-enabling technology is to license
     our intellectual property to computer peripheral device manufac-
                                        5

     turers. We have licensed our intellectual property to manufacturers of
     joysticks and steering wheels targeted at game consumers and have licensed
     our intellectual property to Logitech to incorporate our touch-enabling
     technologies into a computer mouse that it manufactures. We have also
     licensed our intellectual property to companies that make industrial
     products, such as medical simulation hardware and arcade systems. We intend
     to expand the number and scope of our licensing relationships and expect
     that licensing royalties will constitute an increasingly significant
     portion of our revenues in the future.
 
          Facilitate Development of Touch-Enabled Products.  We will continue to
     devote significant resources to facilitate the development and manufacture
     by our licensees of products incorporating our touch-enabling technologies.
     We offer complete design packages that include sample hardware, software,
     firmware and related documentation, and offer our technical expertise on a
     consulting basis. To facilitate development of products incorporating our
     touch-enabling technologies, we also offer specialized microprocessors for
     controlling the motors in mice, joysticks and steering wheels. We will
     continue to invest in research and development to improve our technologies,
     with a particular emphasis on reducing the cost of touch-enabled products.
 
          Expand Software Support for Our Touch-Enabling Technology.  In
     addition to licensing our intellectual property to computer peripheral
     device manufacturers and supporting their product development efforts, we
     have focused on expanding software support for our touch-enabling
     technology. We have developed software that enables users to automatically
     feel icons, menus and other objects in software running in Windows 98
     applications or on Web pages accessed through Internet Explorer and
     Netscape Navigator. We offer specialized authoring tools that simplify
     adding touch sensations to software applications and Web pages. We also are
     promoting an efficient file format, called ".ifr," to facilitate the
     creation and storage of custom touch sensations.
 
          Utilize the Internet to Create Market Demand for Touch-Enabled
     Products.  We believe that adding touch sensations to Web pages will
     provide on-line advertisers with a new means to attract and keep customers
     on their sites. We intend to promote this benefit to Web developers and to
     encourage them to incorporate touch-enabled content into their Web pages.
     When software developers add touch-enabled content to a Web site using our
     Immersion Web Designer authoring tool, they are required by license to
     include an active link from their Web page to our Web site,
     www.immersion.com. Our Web site is also linked to our licensees' Web sites,
     at which users may buy touch-enabled products.
 
          Expand Market Awareness.  We promote adoption of our touch-enabling
     technology by increasing market awareness among peripheral device
     manufacturers, software developers and consumers. We devote significant
     resources to working directly with our licensees to encourage and assist
     their product development efforts. We encourage software developers to add
     touch-enabled content to their applications by providing them with our
     authoring tools and technical support. As part of our license agreements,
     we require our licensees to use our trademarks and logos to create brand
     awareness among consumers. We intend to devote significant resources in the
     future to expand market awareness of our touch-enabling technology and our
     brands.
 
          Secure Licensees in New Markets for Touch-Enabling Technology.  We
     believe that our touch-enabling technology can be used in virtually all
     areas of computing. We initially focused on the computer gaming market
     where we have experienced rapid acceptance of our technologies by key
     licensees. We have recently broadened our focus to include mainstream
     computing and have licensed our touch-enabling technologies for use in
     computer mice. We intend to expand our market opportunities by addressing
     new platforms such as dedicated game consoles and set-top boxes, which are
     small computer appliances that plug into a television set enabling it to
     access the Internet.
 
          Develop and Protect Touch-Enabling Technology.  We hold 38 U.S.
     patents and have more than 125 patent applications pending in the U.S. and
     abroad covering our touch-enabling technology. Our success depends on our
     ability to license and commercialize our intellectual property and to
     continue to expand our intellectual property portfolio. We devote
     substantial resources to research and development and are engaged in
     projects focused on expanding the scope and application of our
     technologies. We have
 
                                        6

<PAGE>   7
 
     also secured technology by acquisition. We intend to continue to invest in
     technology development and potential acquisitions and to protect our
     intellectual property rights.
 
MARKET APPLICATIONS
 
     While we believe that our technologies are broadly applicable, we are
focusing our initial marketing and business development activities on the
following target markets:
 
          Computer Gaming.  We initially licensed our intellectual property for
     touch-enabling technologies for consumer gaming peripherals in 1996 and
     branded this technology under the name I-FORCE. We have licensed our
     I-FORCE intellectual property to 16 manufacturers, including Logitech and
     Microsoft. According to PC Data, touch-enabled joysticks accounted for
     approximately 3% of domestic PC joystick sales by unit volume in 1997, 6%
     of the domestic PC joystick sales by unit volume in 1998, and 10% of the
     domestic PC joystick sales by unit volume in 1999. In addition, we have
     developed I-FORCE technologies for gaming applications designed
     specifically for arcade and location-based entertainment markets. We intend
     to expand our I-FORCE licensing business to include new product categories
     for the PC platform, such as gamepads, which are hand-held controllers for
     gaming consoles, and flight yokes, which are game controllers that simulate
     the controls of an airplane, and to target additional gaming platforms.
 
          General Purpose Personal Computers.  In order to bring touch-enabling
     technology to every desktop, we have targeted the general purpose computer
     market. To address this large opportunity, we developed FEELit, a
     touch-enabling technology designed for cursor control products that enables
     all the basic functionality of a traditional mouse but also presents
     information to the sense of touch. In 1998, we entered into a license with
     Logitech under which Logitech manufactures the Wingman Force Feedback Mouse
     incorporating our touch-enabling technology. Logitech began selling the
     Wingman Force Feedback Mouse in the fourth quarter of 1999.
 
          Medical and Other Professional Computing.  We have identified and
     addressed demand for our touch-enabling technology in various industrial,
     medical and scientific markets. We currently have both product
     manufacturing and product licensing business relationships in these
     markets.
 
TECHNOLOGY LICENSING AND PRODUCTS
 
     Technology Licensing.  We currently license our intellectual property to
manufacturers which produce peripheral devices incorporating our touch-enabling
technologies. In general, our licenses permit manufacturers to produce only a
particular category of product within a specified field of use. We recently
introduced our TouchSense brand, which covers all of our touch-enabling
technologies. Prior to the introduction of our TouchSense brand, we granted
licenses for gaming products, such as joysticks, steering wheels and gamepads,
under the I-FORCE brand, and licenses for cursor control products, such as mice
or trackballs, and into medical simulation devices, under the FEELit brand. We
make our reference designs available to our licensees for an additional fee. A
reference design is a package consisting of a technology binder, an electronic
database and a hardware prototype that can be used in the development of a
touch-enabled product.
 
     Our basic licensing model includes a per unit royalty paid by the
manufacturer that is a percentage of the wholesale selling price of the
touch-enabled product. In addition, each licensee must abide by a branding
obligation. The prominent display of TouchSense, I-FORCE and/or FEELit logos on
retail packaging generates customer awareness for our technologies.
 
     Consumer Products.  We license our intellectual property to manufacturers
which incorporate our touch-enabling technologies into joysticks, steering wheel
and gamepad peripherals targeted at the PC platform. Currently, there are five
consumer joysticks sold under the I-FORCE brand: the Wingman Force Feedback
Joystick from Logitech, the Sidewinder Force Feedback Joystick from Microsoft,
the Pegasus Force Feedback Joystick from Guillemot, the TopShot Force Feedback
from AVB, and the Force-FX Joystick from CH Products. Currently, there are ten
I-FORCE steering wheel gaming peripherals licensed under the I-FORCE brand,

from Guillemot, the Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel from Microsoft and the V4
Force Feedback Racing Wheel and FX Force Feedback Racing Wheel from InterAct.
Currently, there is one I-FORCE gamepad peripheral licensed under the I-FORCE
brand, the Hammerhead FX from InterAct.
 
     Logitech began selling its touch-enabled computer mouse during the fourth
quarter of 1999. This mouse, which is called the Wingman Force Feedback Mouse,
automatically allows users to feel many of the basic desktop controls in Windows
98 and standard interface elements of Web pages accessed through Internet
Explorer and Netscape Navigator. Logitech is currently marketing the mouse for
use in gaming and Web applications.
 
     Medical Products.  We license our intellectual property for our
touch-enabling technologies to HT Medical Systems for use in three medical
simulation products, CathSim, PreOp Endoscopic Simulator and PreOp Endovascular
Simulator. These devices are used for training purposes and enable clinicians to
feel simulations of sensations experienced during medical procedures, such as
encountering an unexpected obstruction in an artery.
 
     Arcade and Location-Based Entertainment Products.  In order to help
increase consumer awareness of touch-enabling technology in gaming applications,
we license our touch-enabling technology to manufacturers of joystick and
steering wheel arcade units.
 
     Software and Developer Products.  Demand for computer peripheral devices
incorporating our touch-enabling technologies depends on the existence of
software applications and Web pages that take advantage of these devices. The
development of such software likewise depends on the existence of an installed
base of touch-enabled hardware devices. We have addressed this interdependency
of hardware and software solutions in two ways. First, we have developed
end-user software that is included with Logitech's touch-enabled mouse at no
additional cost, and which automatically adds touch to many of the basic Windows
98 controls. Second, we have developed and provide to developers and end users
software authoring tools that help programmers add touch-enabled content to
software applications and Web pages. We have developed an efficient file format,
called an ".ifr" file, for representing, storing and transmitting touch
sensations. This file format allows the development of touch sensation libraries
that facilitate the development of touch-enabled applications software. We
currently make Immersion Studio, Immersion Desktop and Immersion Web Designer
available to developers and Immersion Desktop and Immersion Web Plugin available
to end users free of charge. We have licensed a limited number of copies of
Immersion Studio to persons other than developers but have not generated
significant revenues from these licenses.
 
     Automatic Support
 
     - Immersion Desktop adds touch sensations to many of the basic Windows 98
       controls, such as icons, menus, buttons, sliders and windows. It
       immediately makes any application running under Windows 98 more
       interesting and enhances productivity during mouse use. It includes a
       control panel that gives users the ability to customize the feel of their
       desktop. This product is bundled with Logitech's touch-enabled mouse.
 
     - Immersion Web Plugin adds touch to web pages accessed through Internet
       Explorer and Netscape Navigator. In conjunction with Immersion Desktop,
       it adds touch sensations to many of the standard interface elements of
       Web pages such as hyperlinks, check boxes and menus. It also allows users
       to feel custom sensations that have been added to Web pages. This product
       is bundled with each of Logitech's touch-enabled mouse.
 
     Authoring Tools
 
     - Immersion Studio is a fully animated graphical environment that allows
       developers of mainstream productivity, Web and gaming software to design
       touch sensations for their software titles by adjusting physical
       parameters. Each software file describing the touch sensation that a
       developer creates can be saved into an ".ifr" file and then can be
       quickly inserted into gaming applications and Web pages during the
       development process.
 
                                        8

<PAGE>   9
 
     - Immersion Web Designer is an easy-to-use authoring tool that allows Web
       developers to add touch sensations to Web pages. They can load any HTML
       Web page into the tool and modify it to support touch sensations.
 
     Custom Microprocessors.  Many touch-enabled peripheral devices utilize
commercially available microprocessors that process instructions needed to
deliver force sensations to the user. These microprocessors have not been
tailored for the specific requirements of touch-enabled products. We have
developed our custom Immersion Processors to improve the performance and to help
to reduce the cost of gaming and peripheral products manufactured by our
licensees. For example, our microprocessors contain circuitry to work with low
cost sensors used in touch-enabled gaming and peripheral products, and have been
designed to streamline processing of information sent between a personal
computer and a touch-enabled gaming or computer peripheral product. We believe
that these microprocessors are cost-effective components that allow our
licensees to reduce their costs of goods and the amount of custom development
that they must perform to bring a product to market, speeding their development
cycle.
 
     We have invested in this technology because we believe it is important as
an enabling technology for low-cost touch-enabled devices. By incorporating
commonly used components on a single piece of silicon, our microprocessors
reduce the number of discrete components required on a printed circuit board and
can help lower overall system costs for our licensees. This level of integration
also simplifies the manufacture of touch-enabled products while increasing
performance and reliability.
 
     Our Immersion Processors are manufactured for us solely by Kawasaki LSI,
with which we have entered into an ASIC Design and Development Agreement that
remains in effect until cancelled by either party. We purchase the Immersion
Processors from Kawasaki LSI and sell them to those licensees incorporating our
touch-enabling technology in their gaming products that want to use the
microprocessors in their gaming products. We permit Kawasaki LSI to sell our
Immersion Processor directly to Logitech for use in its touch-enabled computer
mouse. Kawasaki LSI pays a royalty to us on the sales of the Immersion
Processors to Logitech. We generally warrant our microprocessors to conform to
our specifications and to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for
a period of one year from delivery, and Kawasaki LSI extends a similar warranty
to us.
 
     Specialty Products
 
     Medical Simulation and Other Medical Equipment.  We have developed numerous
technologies that can be used for medical training and simulation. By allowing
computers to deliver touch sensations to users, our technologies can support
realistic simulations that are effective in teaching medical students and
doctors what it feels like to perform a given procedure. Currently, we
manufacture and sell a number of low volume specialized medical products,
including:
 
     - Virtual Laparoscopic Interface, a fully integrated tool designed to let
       developers, researchers and educators simulate minimally invasive
       surgical procedures;
 
     - Laparoscopic Impulse Engine, a three-dimensional interface for virtual
       reality simulations of laparoscopic and endoscopic surgical procedures
       that allows users to feel actual surgical tools as if they were
       performing these procedures;
 
     - PinPoint, a stereotactic arm manufactured for Marconi Medical Systems
       (formerly Picker International, Inc.), which is integrated with Picker CT
       scanners to enable image-guided biopsies and radiation therapy; and
 
     - Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Simulation Trainer, an electro-mechanical system
       that recreates an operating room environment to simulate endoscopic
       procedures.
 
     Arcade and Location-Based Entertainment Products.  We manufacture versions
of touch-enabled joysticks and steering wheel products with enhanced durability
specifically for the arcade and location-based entertainment markets. We sell,
and expect to continue to sell, these products directly to entertainment
companies that operate entertainment centers. While these products are higher
priced than the joysticks and
 
                                        9

<PAGE>   10
 
wheel products sold by licensees that incorporate our technologies into computer
peripherals used for entertainment, the arcade and location-based market is a
relatively small market when compared to the consumer markets served by our
licensees.
 
     Automotive Applications.  We are currently engaged in the second phase of
an engineering development project for a major automobile manufacturer regarding
a touch-enabled control device for use in automobiles. We have no commitment
from the automobile manufacturer as to when or whether such a touch-enabled
control device may be incorporated into a shipping automobile model.
 
     MicroScribe-3D.  Our MicroScribe-3D product allows users to create
three-dimensional computer models directly from physical objects. It contains
sensor and microprocessor technologies that allow users to digitize physical
objects simply by tracing their contours with a stylus. The computer records the
three-dimensional geometry of the object and reproduces it on the screen as a
three-dimensional computer model. MicroScribe-3D is designed to support the
needs of game developers, engineers, animators, film makers, industrial
designers and other professionals who need to create realistic three-dimensional
computer images quickly and easily.
 
     Softmouse.  We also manufacture a high performance non-touch-enabled mouse
for geographic information systems and the map-making industry. This product has
a two-handed interface with ten buttons and a rotary thumbwheel. We currently
sell this product to several major manufacturers, including Intergraph, Vision
International and LH Systems. End users of Softmouse include the U.S. Geological
Survey, NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense.
 
TECHNOLOGY
 
     Touch or feel simulation, also known as force feedback, haptic feedback or
force reflection, refers to the technique of adding touch sensations to computer
software by imparting physical forces upon the user's hand. These forces are
imparted by actuators, usually motors, that are incorporated into consumer
peripheral devices such as mice, joysticks, steering wheels or gamepads, or into
more sophisticated interfaces designed for industrial, medical or scientific
applications. Touch-enabled peripheral devices can impart to users physical
sensations like rough textures, smooth surfaces, viscous liquids, compliant
springs, jarring vibrations, heavy masses and rumbling engines.
 
     As a user manipulates a touch-enabled device, such as a mouse, motors
within the device apply computer-modulated forces that resist, assist or
otherwise enhance the manipulations. These forces are generated based on
mathematical models that simulate the desired sensations. For example, when
simulating the feel of a rigid wall with a force feedback mouse, motors within
the mouse apply forces that simulate the feel of encountering the wall. As the
user moves the mouse to penetrate the wall, the motors apply a force that
resists the penetration. The harder the user pushes, the harder the motors push
back. The end result is a sensation that feels like a physical encounter with an
obstacle.
 
     The mathematical models that control the motors may be simple modulating
forces based on a function of time, such as jolts and vibrations, or may be more
complex modulating forces based on user manipulations such as surfaces,
textures, springs and liquids. Complex sensations can be created by combining a
number of simpler sensations. For example, a series of simulated surfaces can be
combined to give the seamless feel of a complex object like a sports car or a
telephone. Textures can be added to these complex surfaces so that the
windshield of the sportscar feels smooth and its tires feel rubbery.
 
     To simplify the process of generating touch sensations, we have developed a
parallel processing architecture in which a dedicated processor resides within
the peripheral device and performs the complex mathematics. The dedicated
processor offloads the processing burden from the host computer. This
distributed processing architecture, along with specialized software, provides a
software developer with an easy-to-use high-level application programming
interface that abstracts touch-enabled programming into a perceptual rather than
mathematical level. The application programming interface allows programmers to
define and initiate touch sensations with software routines that have
descriptive physical names such as "wall,"
 
                                       10

<PAGE>   11
 
"vibration" or "liquid." Programmers can easily adjust multiple parameters to
customize different types of sensations.
 
     We have developed an application programming interface called the Immersion
API. It allows software developers to incorporate touch sensations into software
applications quickly. In 1997, Microsoft included support for our Immersion API,
which was then known as the I-FORCE API, into DirectX, Microsoft's standard
gaming device application programming interface for the Windows platform.
 
     Most computer interface devices, such as mice and joysticks, are input-only
devices, meaning that they track a user's physical manipulations but provide no
manual feedback. As a result, information flows in only one direction, from the
peripheral to the computer. Touch-enabled devices are input-output devices,
meaning that they track a user's physical manipulations (input) and provide
realistic physical sensations coordinated with on-screen events (output). The
computer and the device need to communicate quickly in order to present
realistic sensations.
 
     We have developed efficient processing techniques to minimize the amount of
information that needs to be communicated between the computer and the
peripheral. We use dedicated processors in the device to produce touch
sensations in response to high-level commands from the computer. Our control
architecture has the added benefit of performing force feedback computations in
parallel with the computer's execution of a software application.
 
SALES, MARKETING AND SUPPORT
 
     We establish licensing relationships and sell a number of our products
through our direct sales efforts. We also sell some of our products indirectly
through distributors and value-added resellers. As part of our strategy to
increase our visibility and promote our touch-enabling technology, our license
agreements generally require our licensees to display the TouchSense, I-FORCE or
FEELit logos on licensed products they distribute.
 
     Consistent with our intellectual property licensing strategy, we have
focused our marketing activities on developing relationships with potential
licensees and on participating with existing licensees in their marketing and
sales efforts. To generate awareness of our technologies and our licensees'
products, we participate in industry trade shows, maintain ongoing contact with
industry press, provide product information over our Web site and advertise in
entertainment and game industry publications.
 
     Another focus of our marketing efforts is to promote the adoption of our
touch-enabling technology by software and Web developers to facilitate the
implementation of touch sensations into software applications. We have developed
the Immersion TouchSense Developer Toolkit, which contain our software authoring
tools, as well as documentation, tutorials and software files containing sample
touch sensations. We currently distribute this software to software developers
at no cost. Our software support staff also works closely with developers to
assist them in developing compelling touch-enabled applications. We provide
sample touch sensations to developers through our Web site and through our
Immersion Studio and Immersion Web Designer authoring tools. We intend to devote
substantial resources to supporting software developers and Web page designers
in the creation of touch-enabled software applications, including hiring
additional software engineers and other technical personnel.
 
     We anticipate allocating substantially more resources to sales and
marketing to proliferate our technology and to support the sales of our licensed
products. We intend to substantially increase our advertising and marketing
efforts to end-users in 2000 because we believe that it is important to increase
awareness of our touch-enabling technology among potential end users. As part of
this effort, we intend to engage in a series of marketing and promotional
campaigns, including advertisements, in-store product demonstrations, and press
tours in the United States and Europe. The goal of these efforts is to create
consumer awareness of the benefits of touch-enabled cursor control devices
through the promotion of Logitech's Wingman Force Feedback Mouse product. Our
sales and marketing expenses were approximately $1.8 million in 1999, $0.7
million in 1998 and $0.7 million in 1997. We currently anticipate that we will
incur at least $9.0 million in sales and marketing expenses through the end of
the year 2000.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
 
     Our success depends on our ability to improve, and reduce the costs of, our
technologies in a timely manner. We have assembled a team of highly skilled
engineers who possess experience in the disciplines required for touch-enabling
technology development, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering
and computer science.
 
     Our research and development expenses were approximately $2.3 million in
1999, $1.8 million in 1998 and $1.5 million in 1997. We currently anticipate
that we will incur at least $3.5 million in research and development expenses
through the end of the year 2000. Our research and development efforts have been
focused on technology development, including hardware, software and designs. We
have entered into numerous contracts with government agencies and corporations
that help fund advanced research and development. Our government contracts
permit us to retain ownership of the technology developed under the contracts,
provided that we provide the applicable government agency a license to use the
technology for non-commercial purposes. Although we expect to continue to invest
substantially in research and development activities, we expect
government-sponsored research activity to decline.
 
COMPETITION
 
     We are aware of several companies that claim to possess touch-enabling
technology applicable to the consumer market, but we do not believe that these
companies or their licensees have introduced touch-enabled products. Several
companies also currently market force feedback products to non-consumer markets
and could shift their focus to the consumer market. In addition, our licensees
may develop products that compete with products employing our touch-enabling
technology but are based on alternative technologies. Many of our licensees,
including Microsoft and Logitech, and other potential competitors have greater
financial and technical resources upon which to draw in developing computer
peripheral technologies that do not make use of our touch-enabling technology.
 
     Our competitive position is partially dependent on our licensees'
competitive positions of those licensees that pay a pre-unit royalty. Our
licensees' markets are highly competitive. We believe that the principal
competitive factors in our licensees' markets include price, performance,
user-centric design, ease of use, quality and timeliness of products, as well as
the manufacturer's responsiveness, capacity, technical abilities, established
customer relationships, retail shelf space, advertising, promotion programs and
brand recognition. Touch-related benefits in such markets may be viewed simply
as enhancements and compete with non-touch-enabled technologies. Products
incorporating our touch-enabling technology may also face competition from
computer peripheral devices that use simple vibration technology, sometimes
referred to as "dual shock" or "rumble pak."
 
     Semiconductor companies, including Mitsubishi and STMicroelectronics,
manufacture products that compete with the Immersion Processors but which have
not been tailored specifically for touch-enabling technology. Our
microprocessors have been optimized to work with low cost sensors used in
touch-enabled gaming and peripheral products and to streamline processing of
information sent between a personal computer and a touch-enabled gaming or
computer peripheral product. We are not aware of any companies other than us
that currently market optimized touch-enabling processors.
 
     There are several companies that currently sell high-end simulation
products that compete with our professional and medical products. The principal
bases for competition in these markets are technological sophistication and
price. We believe we compete favorably on these bases.
 
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
 
     We rely on a combination of patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks,
employee and third-party nondisclosure agreements and licensing arrangements to
protect our intellectual property. We consider our ability to protect our
intellectual property to be critical to our success.
 
     We hold 38 U.S. patents and have more than 125 pending patent applications,
both domestic and foreign, covering touch and feel technologies. These patents
and patent applications cover a variety of hardware and
                                       12

<PAGE>   13
 
software innovations relating primarily to touch-enabling technologies. Our
current U.S. patents expire between the years 2011 and 2016. Our failure to
obtain or maintain adequate protection for our intellectual property rights for
any reason could hurt our competitive position. Patents may not issue from the
patent applications that we have filed or may file. Our issued patents may be
challenged, invalidated or circumvented, and claims of our patents may not be of
sufficient scope or strength, or issued in the proper geographic regions, to
provide meaningful protection or any commercial advantage.
 
     In addition, others may develop technologies that are similar or superior
to our technologies, duplicate our technologies or design around our patents.
Effective intellectual property protection may be unavailable or limited in some
foreign countries. Despite our efforts to protect our proprietary rights,
unauthorized parties may attempt to copy or otherwise use aspects of our methods
and devices that we regard as proprietary. If our intellectual property
protection is insufficient to protect our intellectual property rights, we could
face increased competition in the market for our technologies, or be unable to
persuade or require companies to enter into royalty-bearing license
arrangements.
 
     We have acquired patents from third parties and also license some
technologies from third parties. We must rely upon the owners of the patents or
the technologies for information on the origin and ownership of the acquired or
licensed technologies. As a result, our exposure to infringement claims may
increase. We generally obtain representations as to the origin and ownership of
acquired or licensed technology and indemnification to cover any breach of these
representations. However, representations may not be accurate and
indemnification may not provide adequate compensation for breach of the
representations.
 
     From time to time, we have received claims from third parties that our
technologies, or those of our licensees, infringe the intellectual property
rights of these third parties. Between May 1995 and June 1999, we received four
such letters. After examination of these claims and consultation with counsel,
we believe that these claims are without merit. To date, none of these companies
has filed a legal action against us. However, these or other matters might lead
to litigation costs in the future. Intellectual property claims, whether or not
they have merit, could be time-consuming to defend, cause product shipment
delays, require us to pay damages against us, or require us to cease utilizing
the technology unless we can enter into royalty or licensing agreements. Royalty
or licensing agreements might not be available on terms acceptable to us or at
all. Furthermore, claims could also result in claims from our licensees under
the indemnification provisions of their agreements with us.
 
     From time to time, we initiate claims against third parties that we believe
infringe our intellectual property rights. To date, these claims have not led to
any litigation. However, any litigation to protect and enforce our intellectual
property rights could be costly, time-consuming and distracting to management
and could result in the impairment or loss of portions of our intellectual
property assets.
 
                     FACTORS THAT MAY AFFECT FUTURE RESULTS
 
THE MARKET FOR OUR TOUCH-ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES IS AT AN EARLY STAGE AND, IF
MARKET DEMAND DOES NOT DEVELOP, WE MAY NOT ACHIEVE OR SUSTAIN REVENUE GROWTH.
 
     The consumer market for touch-enabling technology is at an early stage, and
if we and our licensees are unable to develop consumer demand for our licensees'
products we may not achieve or sustain revenue growth. To date, consumer demand
for our technologies has been limited to the computer gaming peripherals market,
and sales of joysticks and steering wheels incorporating our touch-enabling
technologies in that market began only in late 1996 and 1998, respectively.
Logitech, a licensee of our technology, launched a computer mouse incorporating
our touch-enabling technologies during the fourth quarter of 1999. This
touch-enabled mouse is the first entrant in a new category of touch-enabled
computer cursor control devices. Touch-enabled mice may not achieve commercial
acceptance or generate significant royalty revenue for us. In addition, software
developers may elect not to create additional games or other applications that
support our touch-enabling technology.
 
                                       13

<PAGE>   14
 
     Even if our technologies are ultimately widely adopted by consumers,
widespread adoption may take a long time to occur. The timing and amount of
royalties that we receive will depend on whether the products marketed by those
licensees that pay us per-unit royalties achieve widespread adoption and, if so,
how rapidly that adoption occurs. We expect that we will need to pursue
extensive and expensive marketing and sales efforts to educate prospective
licensees and consumers about the uses and benefits of our technologies and to
persuade software developers to create software that utilizes our technologies.
 
WE HAD AN ACCUMULATED DEFICIT OF $8.6 MILLION AS OF DECEMBER 31, 1999, WILL
EXPERIENCE LOSSES IN THE FUTURE AND MAY NOT ACHIEVE OR MAINTAIN PROFITABILITY.
 
     Since 1997, we have incurred losses in every fiscal quarter, and we expect
losses through at least 2000. We will need to generate significant revenue to
achieve and maintain profitability. We may not achieve, sustain or increase
profitability in the future. We anticipate that our expenses will increase
substantially in the foreseeable future as we:
 
     - attempt to expand the market for touch-enabled products;
 
     - increase our sales efforts;
 
     - continue to develop our technologies;
 
     - pursue strategic relationships; and
 
     - protect and enforce our intellectual property.
 
     If our revenues grow more slowly than we anticipate or if our operating
expenses exceed our expectations, we may not achieve or maintain profitability.
 
OUR HISTORICAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION DOES NOT REFLECT OUR PRIMARY BUSINESS
STRATEGY FOR ACHIEVING REVENUE GROWTH THROUGH ROYALTY PAYMENTS FROM SALES BY OUR
LICENSEES OF COMPUTER PERIPHERAL PRODUCTS INCORPORATING OUR TOUCH-ENABLING
TECHNOLOGIES, A STRATEGY FROM WHICH HISTORICALLY WE HAVE DERIVED LESS THAN
ONE-THIRD OF OUR REVENUES.
 
     We cannot predict our future revenues based on our historical financial
information. Historically, we derived the majority of our revenues from product
sales, including sales of devices used to create three dimensional computer
images of small objects, medical simulation products and a specialized non-touch
enabled computer mouse used for map making. Historically, we have also derived
revenues from contracts with our licensees to assist in the development of our
licensees' touch-enabled products and from development contracts with government
agencies for touch-enabling technology. The majority of our historical product
sales resulted from sales of products that did not utilize our touch-enabling
technology but utilized related advanced computer peripheral technologies.
 
     We currently concentrate our marketing, research and development activities
on licensing our touch-enabling technology in the computer entertainment and
general purpose personal computer markets. For 1998, we derived only 6% of our
total revenues from royalty revenue and for 1999, we derived 28% of our total
revenues from royalty revenue. We anticipate that royalty revenue from licensing
our technologies will constitute an increasing portion of our revenues.
Accordingly, our historical results should not be relied upon as an indicator of
our future performance.
 
OUR BUSINESS STRATEGY FOR ACHIEVING REVENUE GROWTH RELIES SIGNIFICANTLY ON
ROYALTY PAYMENTS FROM SALES BY LOGITECH OF ITS FEEL-ENABLED MOUSE, A PRODUCT
WHICH LOGITECH BEGAN SELLING IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF 1999.
 
     If Logitech's feel-enabled mouse does not achieve commercial acceptance or
if production or other difficulties that sometimes occur when a new product is
introduced interfere with sales of the Logitech mouse, our ability to achieve
revenue growth could be significantly impaired. In the technology product
development agreement that we entered into with Logitech in 1998, Logitech
estimated that, based upon an assumed production of 100,000 units per year, its
target price for its feel-enabled mouse would be $99. Logitech, however, has
made no commitments to us regarding the production volume or pricing of its
feel-enabled
                                       14

<PAGE>   15
 
mouse. The fact that the actual initial suggested retail price of Logitech's
mouse is $99.95 does not reflect any volume or pricing commitments made to us by
Logitech. To date, sales of the Wingman Force Feedback Mouse have not reached
volume levels. We believe that the facts that the current product is being
marketed, in part, as a gaming product, and that it was introduced late in the
1999 Christmas buying season contributed to a slow ramp-up of initial sales.
Desired sales volumes of feel-enabled mice may not be achieved until the first
general purpose productivity version of the mouse has been introduced. We also
expect that sales volume of touch-enabled mice will be affected by the quantity
and quality of touch-enabled software titles available to consumers. Although we
promote the incorporation of our touch-enabling technologies into software
applications and Web sites, we have limited control over when and if third party
software and Web developers adopt touch-enabling technologies. In addition,
retailers may not recognize touch-enabled mouse products as a separate product
category until there are additional manufacturers of touch-enabled mouse
products and this may be a barrier to sales volume.
 
WE DO NOT CONTROL OR INFLUENCE OUR LICENSEES' MANUFACTURING, PROMOTION,
DISTRIBUTION OR PRICING OF THEIR PRODUCTS INCORPORATING OUR TOUCH-ENABLING
TECHNOLOGIES, UPON WHICH WE ARE DEPENDENT TO GENERATE ROYALTY REVENUE.
 
     Our primary business strategy is to license our intellectual property to
companies that manufacture and sell products incorporating our touch-enabling
technologies. The sale of those products generates royalty revenue for us. For
the year ended December 31, 1999, 28% of our total revenues was royalty revenue,
and we expect royalty revenue will be an increasing portion of our total
revenues in the future. However, we do not control or influence the manufacture,
promotion, distribution or pricing of products that are manufactured and sold by
our licensees and that incorporate our touch-enabling technologies. As a result,
products incorporating our technologies may not be brought to market, achieve
commercial acceptance or generate meaningful royalty revenue for us. For us to
generate royalty revenue, those licensees that pay us per-unit royalties must
manufacture and distribute products incorporating our touch-enabling
technologies in a timely fashion and generate consumer demand through marketing
and other promotional activities. Products incorporating our touch-enabling
technologies are generally more difficult to design and manufacture than
products that do not incorporate our touch-enabling technologies, and these
difficulties may cause product introduction delays. If our licensees fail to
stimulate and capitalize upon market demand for products that generate royalties
for us, our revenues will not grow. Peak demand for products that incorporate
our technologies, especially in the computer gaming peripherals market,
typically occurs in the third and fourth calendar quarters as a result of
increased demand during the year-end holiday season. If our licensees do not
ship licensed products in a timely fashion or fail to achieve strong sales in
the second half of the calendar year, we would not receive related royalty
revenue.
 
BECAUSE LOGITECH IS CURRENTLY OUR ONLY LICENSED MANUFACTURER OF TOUCH-ENABLED
MICE, OUR ROYALTY REVENUE FROM TOUCH-ENABLED MICE WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED
IF LOGITECH DOES NOT EFFECTIVELY MANUFACTURE AND MARKET TOUCH-ENABLED MICE
PRODUCTS.
 
     Logitech is currently the only licensed manufacturer of touch-enabled mice.
If Logitech does not effectively manufacture, market and distribute its
touch-enabled mouse product, our royalty revenue from touch-enabled mice would
be significantly reduced. In addition, a lack of market acceptance of the
Logitech touch-enabled mouse might dissuade other potential licensees from
licensing our technologies for touch-enabled mice and other products.
 
IF WE FAIL TO PROTECT AND ENFORCE OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, OUR ABILITY
TO LICENSE OUR TECHNOLOGIES AND TO GENERATE REVENUES WOULD BE IMPAIRED.
 
     Our business depends on generating revenues by licensing our intellectual
property rights and by selling products that incorporate our technologies. If we
are not able to protect and enforce those rights, our ability to obtain future
licenses and royalty revenue could be impaired. In addition, if a court were to
limit the scope of,
 
                                       15

<PAGE>   16
 
declare unenforceable or invalidate any of our patents, current licensees may
refuse to make royalty payments or may themselves choose to challenge one or
more of our patents. Also it is possible that:
 
     - our pending patent applications may not result in the issuance of
       patents;
 
     - our patents may not be broad enough to protect our proprietary rights;
 
     - effective patent protection may not be available in every country in
       which our licensees do business.
 
     We also rely on licenses, confidentiality agreements and copyright,
trademark and trade secret laws to establish and protect our proprietary rights.
It is possible that:
 
     - laws and contractual restrictions may not be sufficient to prevent
       misappropriation of our technologies or deter others from developing
       similar technologies; and
 
     - policing unauthorized use of our products and trademarks would be
       difficult, expensive and time-consuming, particularly overseas.
 
IF WE ARE UNABLE TO ENTER INTO NEW LICENSING ARRANGEMENTS WITH OUR EXISTING
LICENSEES AND WITH ADDITIONAL THIRD-PARTY MANUFACTURERS FOR OUR TOUCH-ENABLING
TECHNOLOGY, OUR ROYALTY REVENUE MAY NOT GROW.
 
     Our revenue growth depends on our ability to enter into new licensing
arrangements. Our failure to enter into new licensing arrangements will cause
our operating results to suffer. We face numerous risks in obtaining new
licenses on terms consistent with our business objectives and in maintaining,
expanding and supporting our relationships with our current licensees. These
risks include:
 
     - the lengthy and expensive process of building a relationship with
       potential licensees;
 
     - the fact that we may compete with the internal design teams of existing
       and potential licensees;
 
     - difficulties in persuading consumer product manufacturers to work with
       us, to rely on us for critical technology and to disclose to us
       proprietary product development and other strategies; and
 
     - difficulties in persuading existing and potential licensees to bear the
       development costs necessary to incorporate our technologies into their
       products.
 
OUR QUARTERLY REVENUES AND OPERATING RESULTS ARE VOLATILE, AND IF OUR FUTURE
RESULTS ARE BELOW THE EXPECTATIONS OF PUBLIC MARKET ANALYSTS OR INVESTORS, THE
PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK IS LIKELY TO DECLINE.
 
     Our revenues and operating results are likely to vary significantly from
quarter to quarter due to a number of factors, many of which are outside of our
control and any of which could cause the price of our common stock to decline.
 
     These factors include:
 
     - the establishment or loss of licensing relationships;
 
     - the timing of payments under fixed and/or up-front license agreements;
 
     - the timing of our expenses, including costs related to acquisitions of
       technologies or businesses;
 
     - the timing of introductions of new products and product enhancements by
       our licensees and their competitors;
 
     - our ability to develop and improve our technologies;
 
     - our ability to attract, integrate and retain qualified personnel; and
 
     - seasonality in the demand for our licensees' products.
 
     Accordingly, we believe that period-to-period comparisons of our operating
results should not be relied upon as an indicator of our future performance. In
addition, because a high percentage of our operating
 
                                       16

<PAGE>   17
 
expenses is fixed, a shortfall of revenues can cause significant variations in
operating results from period to period.
 
THE HIGHER COST OF GAMING AND CURSOR CONTROL PERIPHERAL PRODUCTS INCORPORATING
OUR TOUCH-ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES AS COMPARED TO NON TOUCH-ENABLED GAMING AND
CURSOR CONTROL PERIPHERALS MAY INHIBIT OR PREVENT THE WIDESPREAD ADOPTION AND
SALE OF PRODUCTS INCORPORATING OUR TECHNOLOGIES.
 
     Joysticks, steering wheels, gamepads and computer mice incorporating our
touch-enabling technologies are more expensive than similar competitive products
that are not touch-enabled. Although major providers of computer peripheral
devices, such as Logitech and Microsoft, have licensed our technology, the
greater expense of products containing our touch-enabling technologies as
compared to non touch-enabled products may be a significant barrier to the
widespread adoption and sale of their touch-enabled products in consumer
markets.
 
IF OUR TECHNOLOGIES ARE UNABLE TO GAIN MARKET ACCEPTANCE OTHER THAN IN
TOUCH-ENABLED JOYSTICKS AND STEERING WHEELS, OUR REVENUE GROWTH WILL BE LIMITED.
 
     Substantially all of our royalty revenue is derived from the licensing of
I-FORCE, our portfolio of touch-enabling technology for personal computer gaming
peripherals such as joysticks and steering wheels. Our I-FORCE royalty revenue
was $321,000 for 1998 and $2,193,000 for 1999. I-FORCE royalty revenue
represented 100% and 98% of our royalty revenue in 1998 and 1999, respectively.
The market for joysticks and steering wheels for use with personal computers is
a substantially smaller market than either the mouse market or the dedicated
gaming console market and is characterized by declining average selling prices.
If we are unable to gain market acceptance beyond the personal computer gaming
peripherals market, we may not achieve revenue growth.
 
COMPETITION IN COMPUTER PERIPHERAL PRODUCTS IN BOTH THE GENERAL PURPOSE
COMPUTING AND COMPUTER GAMING MARKETS COULD LEAD TO REDUCTIONS IN THE SELLING
PRICE OF PERIPHERAL PRODUCTS OF OUR LICENSEES, WHICH WOULD REDUCE OUR ROYALTY
REVENUE.
 
     The general purpose computing and computer gaming markets in which our
licensees sell peripheral products are highly competitive and are characterized
by rapid technological change, short product life cycles, cyclical market
patterns, a trend of declining average selling prices and increasing foreign and
domestic competition. We believe that competition among computer peripheral
manufacturers will continue to be intense, and that competitive pressures will
drive the price of our licensees' products downward. Any reduction in our
royalties per unit that is not offset by corresponding increases in unit sales
will cause our revenues to decline.
 
BECAUSE WE HAVE A FIXED PAYMENT LICENSE WITH MICROSOFT, OUR ROYALTY REVENUE FROM
LICENSING JOYSTICKS AND STEERING WHEELS IN THE GAMING MARKET MIGHT DECLINE IF
MICROSOFT INCREASES ITS VOLUME OF SALES OF TOUCH-ENABLED JOYSTICKS AND STEERING
WHEELS AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR OTHER LICENSEES.
 
     Under the terms of our present agreement with Microsoft, Microsoft receives
a perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive license under our patents for
its SideWinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick and its SideWinder Force Feedback
Wheel, and for a future replacement version of these specific SideWinder
products having essentially similar functional features. Instead of an ongoing
royalty on Microsoft's sales of licensed products, the agreement provides for a
payment of $2.35 million, which we recognize in equal monthly increments over a
one-year period ending mid-July 2000. The payment of $2.35 million is fixed
regardless of Microsoft's sales volume of these two licensed products. We
derived 13% of our total revenues and 48% of our royalty revenue for the twelve
months ended December 31, 1999 from Microsoft. At the present time, we do not
have a license agreement with Microsoft for products other than the SideWinder
joystick and steering wheel. Microsoft has a significant share of the market for
touch-enabled joysticks and steering wheels for personal computers. Microsoft
has significantly greater financial, sales and marketing resources, as well as
greater name recognition and a larger customer base, than our other licensees.
In the
 
                                       17

<PAGE>   18
 
event that Microsoft increases its share of this market, our royalty revenue
from other licensees in this market segment might decline.
 
LOGITECH ACCOUNTS FOR A LARGE PORTION OF OUR ROYALTY REVENUE AND THE FAILURE OF
LOGITECH TO ACHIEVE SALES VOLUMES FOR ITS GAMING AND CURSOR CONTROL PERIPHERAL
PRODUCTS THAT INCORPORATE OUR TOUCH-ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES MAY REDUCE OUR ROYALTY
REVENUE.
 
     We derived 13% of our total revenues and 32% of our royalty revenue for
1999 from Logitech. We expect that a significant portion of our total revenues
will continue to be derived from Logitech. If Logitech fails to achieve
anticipated sales volumes for its computer peripheral products that incorporate
our technologies, our royalty revenue would be reduced.
 
BECAUSE PERSONAL COMPUTER PERIPHERAL PRODUCTS THAT INCORPORATE OUR
TOUCH-ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES CURRENTLY MUST WORK WITH MICROSOFT'S OPERATING
SYSTEM SOFTWARE, OUR COSTS COULD INCREASE AND OUR REVENUES COULD DECLINE IF
MICROSOFT MODIFIES ITS OPERATING SYSTEM SOFTWARE.
 
     Our hardware and software technology for personal computer peripheral
products that incorporate our touch-enabling technologies is currently
compatible with Microsoft's Windows 98 operating system software, including
DirectX, Microsoft's entertainment applications programming interface. If
Microsoft modifies its operating system, including DirectX, we may need to
modify our technologies and this could cause delays in the release of products
by our licensees. If Microsoft modifies its software products in ways that limit
the use of our other licensees' products, our costs could be increased and our
revenues could decline.
 
THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OF THEIR PROPRIETARY RIGHTS COULD RESULT IN
EXPENSIVE, TIME-CONSUMING LITIGATION, WHICH COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR BUSINESS.
 
     Any intellectual property litigation, whether brought by us or by others,
could result in the expenditure of significant financial resources and the
diversion of management's time and efforts. In addition, litigation in which we
are accused of infringement may cause product shipment delays, require us to
develop non-infringing technology or require us to enter into royalty or license
agreements even before the issue of infringement has been decided on the merits.
 
     If any litigation were not resolved in our favor, we could become subject
to substantial damage claims from third parties and indemnification claims from
our licensees. We and our licensees could be enjoined from the continued use of
the technology at issue without a royalty or license agreement. Royalty or
license agreements, if required, might not be available on acceptable terms, or
at all.
 
     If a third party claiming infringement against us prevailed and we could
not develop non-infringing technology or license the infringed or similar
technology on a timely and cost-effective basis, our expenses would increase and
our revenues could decrease.
 
     We attempt to avoid infringing known proprietary rights of third parties.
We have not, however, conducted and do not conduct comprehensive patent searches
to determine whether aspects of our technology infringe patents held by third
parties. Third parties may hold, or may in the future be issued, patents that
could be infringed by our products or technologies. Any of these third parties
might make a claim of infringement against us with respect to the products that
we manufacture and the technologies that we license. Between May 1995 and June
1999, we received letters from four companies, several of which have
significantly greater financial resources than we do, asserting that some of our
technologies, or those of our licensees, infringe their intellectual property
rights. Certain of our licenses have received similar letters from the same four
companies. Such letters may influence our licensees decisions whether to ship
products incorporating our technologies. Although none of these matters has
resulted in litigation to date, any of these notices, or additional notices that
we could receive in the future from these or other companies, could lead to
litigation. We might also elect to enforce our patents and other intellectual
property rights against third parties, which could result in litigation.
 
                                       18

<PAGE>   19
 
WE DEPEND ON KAWASAKI LSI TO PRODUCE OUR IMMERSION PROCESSORS AND MAY LOSE
CUSTOMERS IF KAWASAKI LSI DOES NOT MEET OUR REQUIREMENTS.
 
     Kawasaki LSI is the sole supplier of our custom Immersion Processors, which
we develop, license and sell to improve the performance and to help reduce the
cost of computer peripheral products, such as joysticks and mice, incorporating
our touch-enabling technology. Because Kawasaki LSI manufactures and tests our
processors, we have limited control over delivery schedules, quality assurance,
manufacturing capacity, yields, costs and misappropriation of our intellectual
property. Although Kawasaki LSI warrants that microprocessors it supplies to us
or to our customers will conform to our specifications and be free from defects
in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from delivery, any delays
in delivery of the processor, quality problems or cost increases could cause us
to lose customers and could damage our relationships with our licensees.
 
IF WE ARE UNABLE TO CONTINUALLY IMPROVE, AND REDUCE THE COST OF, OUR
TECHNOLOGIES, COMPANIES MAY NOT INCORPORATE OUR TECHNOLOGIES INTO THEIR
PRODUCTS, WHICH COULD IMPAIR OUR REVENUE GROWTH.
 
     Our ability to achieve revenue growth depends on our continuing ability to
improve, and reduce the cost of, our technologies and to introduce these
technologies to the marketplace in a timely manner. If our development efforts
are not successful or are significantly delayed, companies may not incorporate
our technologies into their products and our revenue growth may be impaired.
 
THREE KEY MEMBERS OF OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM HAVE RECENTLY JOINED US AND THEY MAY
NOT BE EFFECTIVELY INTEGRATED INTO OUR COMPANY, WHICH COULD IMPEDE THE EXECUTION
OF OUR BUSINESS STRATEGY.
 
     Our Vice President of Finance, Vice President of Marketing and Vice
President of Business Development each joined us in July or August 1999.
Accordingly, each of these individuals has limited experience with our business.
Our success will depend to a significant extent on the ability of our new
officers to integrate themselves into our daily operations, to gain the trust
and confidence of other employees and to work effectively as a team. If any of
them fails to do so, our ability to execute our business strategy would be
impeded.
 
COMPETITION FROM PRODUCTS THAT DO NOT INCORPORATE OUR TECHNOLOGIES COULD LEAD TO
REDUCED PRICES AND SALES VOLUMES OF PRODUCTS INCORPORATING OUR TECHNOLOGIES THAT
ARE MANUFACTURED BY OUR LICENSEES, WHICH COULD LIMIT OUR REVENUES OR CAUSE OUR
REVENUES TO DECLINE.
 
     Our licensees may seek to develop products that are based on alternative
technologies that do not require a license under our intellectual property.
Several companies currently market products that incorporate more expensive
variations of touch-enabling technology for scientific and industrial use and
may shift their focus to consumer markets if those markets continue to grow. In
addition, we face competition from companies that market lower cost, less
sophisticated vibration technology, sometimes referred to as "dual shock" or
"rumble pak." These or other potential competitors may have significantly
greater financial, technical and marketing resources. If existing or potential
licensees do not license technology or intellectual property from us, our
revenue growth could be limited or revenues could decline.
 
COMPETITION TO OUR IMMERSION PROCESSORS MAY LEAD TO REDUCED PRICES AND SALES
VOLUMES OF OUR MICROPROCESSORS.
 
     To date, the market for our Immersion Processors has been small. If the
market grows, we expect more companies to compete in this market. Increased
competition could result in significant price erosion, reduced revenues or loss
of market share, any of which would have an adverse effect on our business and
operating results. Currently, semiconductor companies, including Mitsubishi and
STMicroelectronics, manufacture products that compete with our microprocessors.
Although the products of these semiconductor companies have not been optimized
for the specific requirements of touch-enabling technology, in the future,
Mitsubishi, STMicroelectronics or other companies may elect to enter the market
for optimized touch-enabling microprocessors. These companies may have greater
financial, technical, manufacturing, distribution and
 
                                       19

<PAGE>   20
 
other resources, greater name recognition and market presence, longer operating
histories, lower cost structures and larger customer bases than we do.
Accordingly, we may not be able to compete successfully against either current
or future competitors.
 
WE MIGHT BE UNABLE TO RECRUIT OR RETAIN NECESSARY PERSONNEL, WHICH COULD SLOW
THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF OUR TECHNOLOGIES.
 
     Our ability to develop and deploy our technologies and to sustain our
revenue growth depends upon the continued service of our executive officers and
other key personnel and upon hiring additional key personnel. We intend to hire
additional sales, support, marketing and research and development personnel in
2000. Competition for these individuals is intense, and we may not be able to
attract, assimilate or retain additional highly qualified personnel in the
future. In addition, our technologies are complex and we rely upon the continued
service of our existing engineering personnel to support licensees, enhance
existing technology and develop new technologies.
 
WE HAVE EXPERIENCED RAPID GROWTH AND CHANGE IN OUR BUSINESS, AND OUR FAILURE TO
MANAGE THIS AND ANY FUTURE GROWTH COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS.
 
     We are increasing the number of our employees rapidly. Our business may be
harmed if we do not integrate and train our new employees quickly and
effectively. We also cannot be sure that our revenues will continue to grow at a
rate sufficient to support the costs associated with an increasing number of
employees.
 
     Any future periods of rapid growth may place significant strains on our
managerial, financial, engineering and other resources. The rate of any future
expansion, in combination with our complex technologies, may demand an unusually
high level of managerial effectiveness in anticipating, planning, coordinating
and meeting our operational needs as well as the needs of our licensees.
 
PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS, INCLUDING CLAIMS RELATING TO ALLEGED REPETITIVE STRESS
INJURIES, COULD BE TIME-CONSUMING AND COSTLY TO DEFEND, AND COULD EXPOSE US TO
LOSS.
 
     Claims that consumer products have flaws or other defects that lead to
personal or other injury are common in the computer peripherals industry. If
products that we or our licensees sell cause personal injury, financial loss or
other injury to our or our licensees' customers, the customers or our licensees
may seek damages or other recovery from us. Any claims against us would be
time-consuming, expensive to defend and distracting to management and could
result in damages and injure our reputation or the reputation of our licensees
or their products. This damage could limit the market for our licensees'
touch-enabled products and harm our results of operations.
 
     In the past, manufacturers of peripheral products, such as computer mice,
have been subject to claims alleging that use of their products has caused or
contributed to various types of repetitive stress injuries, including carpal
tunnel syndrome. We have not experienced any product liability claims to date.
 
     Although our license agreements typically contain provisions designed to
limit our exposure to product liability claims, existing or future laws or
unfavorable judicial decisions could limit or invalidate the provisions.
 
IF WE FAIL TO DEVELOP NEW OR ENHANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR NEW COMPUTER APPLICATIONS
AND PLATFORMS, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CREATE A MARKET FOR OUR TECHNOLOGIES AND
OUR ABILITY TO GROW AND OUR RESULTS OF OPERATIONS MIGHT BE HARMED.
 
     Our initiatives to develop new and enhanced technologies and to license
technologies for new applications and new platforms may not be successful. Any
new or enhanced technologies may not be favorably received by consumers and
could damage our reputation or our brand. Expanding our technology could also
require significant additional expenses and strain our management, financial and
operational resources. The lack of market acceptance of these efforts or our
inability to generate additional revenues sufficient to offset the associated
costs could harm our results of operations.
 
                                       20

WE MAY ENGAGE IN ACQUISITIONS THAT DILUTE STOCKHOLDER VALUE, DIVERT MANAGEMENT
ATTENTION OR CAUSE INTEGRATION PROBLEMS.
 
     As part of our business strategy, we have in the past acquired, and might
in the future acquire, businesses or intellectual property that we feel could
complement our business, enhance our technical capabilities or increase our
intellectual property portfolio. If we consummate acquisitions through an
exchange of our securities, our stockholders could suffer significant dilution.
 
     Acquisitions could create risks for us, including:
 
     - unanticipated costs associated with the acquisitions;
 
     - use of substantial portions of our available cash to consummate the
       acquisitions;
 
     - diversion of management's attention from other business concerns;
 
     - difficulties in assimilation of acquired personnel or operations; and
 
     - intellectual property infringement claims and claims related to the
       ownership of acquired intellectual property.
 
     Any acquisitions, even if successfully completed, might not generate any
additional revenue or provide any benefit to our business.
 
YEAR 2000 COMPLIANCE COSTS AND RISKS ARE DIFFICULT TO ASSESS AND COULD RESULT IN
DELAY OR LOSS OF REVENUES, DAMAGE TO OUR REPUTATION AND DIVERSION OF DEVELOPMENT
RESOURCES.
 
     Many computer programs and embedded date-reliant systems use two digits
rather than four to define the applicable year. Programs and systems that record
only the last two digits of the calendar year may not be able to distinguish
whether "00" means 1900 or 2000. If not corrected, date-related information and
data could cause these programs or systems to fail or to generate erroneous
information.
 
     To the extent that any third-party product with which our technology is
associated is not Year 2000 compliant, our reputation may be harmed. Our revenue
and operating results could become subject to unexpected fluctuations if our
licensees encounter Year 2000 compliance problems that affect their ability to
distribute licensed products. In addition, a delay or failure by our critical
suppliers to be Year 2000 compliant could interrupt our business. To date, our
business has not been affected by Year 2000 compliance problems.
 
OUR STOCK MAY BE VOLATILE.
 
     The stock market has experienced extreme volatility that often has been
unrelated or disproportionate to the performance of particular companies. These
market fluctuations may cause our stock price to decline regardless of our
performance.
 
OUR EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS AND MAJOR STOCKHOLDERS RETAIN SIGNIFICANT
CONTROL OVER US, WHICH MAY LEAD TO CONFLICTS WITH OTHER STOCKHOLDERS OVER
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE MATTERS.
 
     Our current directors, officers and more than 5% stockholders, as a group,
beneficially own a majority of our outstanding common stock. Acting together,
these stockholders would be able to control all matters that our stockholders
vote upon which require the vote of a simple majority of our shares, including
the election of directors and mergers or other business combinations, which
could have the effect of delaying or preventing a third party from acquiring
control over or merging with us.
 
PROVISIONS IN OUR CHARTER DOCUMENTS AND DELAWARE LAW COULD PREVENT OR DELAY A
CHANGE IN CONTROL, WHICH COULD REDUCE THE MARKET PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK.
 
     Provisions in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws may have the
effect of delaying or preventing a change of control or changes in our
management. In addition, certain provisions of Delaware law may
 
                                       21

<PAGE>   22
 
discourage, delay or prevent someone from acquiring or merging with us. These
provisions could limit the price that investors might be willing to pay in the
future for shares of our common stock.
 
THERE ARE A LARGE NUMBER OF SHARES THAT MAY BE SOLD IN THE MARKET, WHICH MAY
DEPRESS THE MARKET PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK.
 
     Sales of substantial numbers of shares of our common stock in the public
market, or the perception that sales may be made, could cause the market price
of our common stock to decline. In addition, the sale of these shares could
impair our ability to raise capital through the sale of additional equity
securities. As of December 31, 1999 we had 15,765,211 shares of common stock
outstanding. Of these, approximately 5.0 million shares are freely tradable.
Substantially all of the remaining shares of our common stock will become
available for sale in May 2000 upon the expiration of lock-up agreements,
subject to the restrictions imposed by the federal securities laws on sales by
affiliates. However, Hambrecht & Quist LLC, the lead underwriter of our initial
public offering, may waive the lock-up restrictions in its sole discretion.
 
EMPLOYEES
 
     As of December 31, 1999, we had 58 full-time employees, including 24 in
research and development, 14 in sales and marketing and 20 in finance,
administration and operations. As of that date, we also employed one independent
contractor. None of our employees is represented by a labor union, and we
consider our employee relations to be good.

ITEM 5.  MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS
 
     Our common stock is traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol
"IMMR." Our initial public offering of stock was November 12, 1999 at $12.00 per
share for an aggregate initial public offering of $53,685,000, including
proceeds from the exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option. The
following table sets forth, for the periods indicated, the high and low sales
prices for the common stock on such market.

<PAGE>   24
 
     The managing underwriters in our initial public offering were Hambrecht &
Quist, Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. and Robertson Stephens. We registered the shares
of the common stock sold in the offering under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, on a Registration Statement on Form S-1 (No. 333-86361). The Securities
and Exchange Commission declared the Registration Statement effective on
November 12, 1999.
 
     We paid a total of $3.8 million in underwriting discounts and commissions
and approximately $1.6 million has been or will be paid for costs and expenses
related to the offering. None of the costs and expenses related to the offering
were paid directly or indirectly to any of our directors, officers, general
partners or their associates, persons owning 10% or more of any class of our
equity securities or any of our affiliates.
 
     After deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and the offering
expenses, we received estimated net proceeds from the offering of $48.3 million.
The net offering proceedings have been used for general corporate purposes, to
provide working capital to develop products and to expand our operations. Funds
that have not been used have been invested in money market funds and other
investment grade securities. We also may use a portion of the net proceeds to
acquire or invest in businesses, technologies, products or services.
 
     The market price of our common stock has fluctuated in the past and is
likely to fluctuate in the future. In addition, the market prices of securities
of other technology companies have been highly volatile. Factors that may have a
significant effect on the market price of our common stock include:
 
     - fluctuations in our operating results;
 
     - announcements of new technologies by us or our competitors;
 
     - analysts' reports and projections;
 
     - regulatory actions; and
 
     - general market, economic or political conditions in the U.S. or abroad.
 
DIVIDEND POLICY
 
     We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock or
other securities and we do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the
foreseeable future.

you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak
only as of the date of this report.
 
OVERVIEW
 
     Immersion was founded in 1993 to develop technologies that help improve
human to computer interaction. Historically, we have derived most of our
revenues from sales of products and from development contracts. We began
generating royalty revenue in the first quarter of 1997 and anticipate that
royalty revenue will become an increasing percentage of our total revenues.
 
     We began developing touch-enabled computer peripherals in 1993. In 1995, we
introduced our Impulse Engine line of high-end touch-enabled devices for
industrial, research and education markets. We manufacture and sell these
products directly to our customers. In 1996, we introduced I-FORCE, our first
branded portfolio of touch-enabling technology for consumer markets. We license
I-FORCE, now called TouchSense, generally on a per unit royalty basis, to
computer gaming peripheral manufacturers. Also in 1996, the first computer
joystick incorporating I-FORCE was introduced.
 
     We introduced FEELit, now called TouchSense, a technology for touch-enabled
cursor control products, such as mice and trackballs, in 1997. In 1998, we
licensed FEELit to Logitech, which began selling the first mouse during the
fourth quarter of 1999.
 
     We have developed a custom processor for touch-enabled products that is
manufactured by Kawasaki LSI, and we began selling this processor in September
1998. In addition to selling the processors ourselves, we granted Kawasaki LSI a
limited royalty-bearing license to sell these processors to Logitech for use in
its touch-enabled computer mouse.
 
     We currently sell products in the industrial and professional markets. We
developed our first three-dimensional digitizer product, which is used to create
three-dimensional computer images of small objects, in 1994 and currently sell
this product under the name MicroScribe-3D. We began developing our Softmouse
 
                                       25

<PAGE>   26
 
product, a specialized computer mouse used for mapmaking, in 1994. This mouse
product is sold to original equipment manufacturers. We began developing
technology and products for the medical market in 1993. We derive revenues from
selling medical training and simulation products. In June 1999, we also began to
license technologies for the medical training and simulation market.
 
     We have entered into numerous contracts with government agencies and
corporations since 1993. Government contracts help fund advanced research and
development, are typically less than two years in duration, are usually for a
fixed price or for our costs plus a fixed fee, and allow the government agency
to license the resulting technology for government applications specifically
excluding any commercial activity. Corporate contracts are typically for product
development consulting, are for a fixed fee and are also less than two years in
duration.
 
     Logitech accounted for 13% of our total revenues in 1999 and 11% of our
total revenues in 1998. The U.S. Government accounted for 7% of our total
revenues in 1999, 10% of our total revenues in 1998, and 24% of our total
revenues in 1997.
 
     Since inception, we have completed a number of acquisitions of patents and
technology. We capitalize the cost of patents and technology and license
agreements, except for amounts relating to acquired in-process research and
development for which there is no alternative future use. As of December 31,
1999, we had capitalized patents and technology of $4.7 million, net of
accumulated amortization of $772,000. We are amortizing these patents and
technology over the estimated useful life of the technology of nine years. Of
this amount, we capitalized patents and technology of $3.3 million, net of
accumulated amortization of $335,000, associated with the acquisition of patents
and technology from Cybernet in March 1999. We are amortizing the Cybernet
patents and technology over the estimated useful life of the technology of nine
years, resulting in an amortization expense anticipated to be approximately
$402,000 per year.
 
     In the quarter ended March 31, 1999, we expensed $1.2 million of in-process
research and development related to five development projects acquired from
Cybernet. The first of these projects is a flexible force feedback development
environment that allows developers to choose the level of
complexity/functionality that fits their needs. At the time of acquisition, the
development was 81% completed and the estimated cost to complete this
development was $438,000. Management expects to ship products using this
software beginning in September 2001. The second of these projects, a
three-degree-of-freedom joystick, gives the operator smooth, intuitive movement
and feedback along three axes -- roll, pitch and yaw -- using brushless motor
and encoder technology. At the time of acquisition, the development was 36%
completed and the estimated cost to complete this development was $109,000.
Management expects products based on this technology to become available in
December 2000. The third of these projects is a six degree-of-freedom hand
controller, a small back drivable robot that moves in six degrees of freedom,
three linear positions and attitudes. At the time of acquisition, the
development was 70% completed and the estimated cost to complete this
development was $88,000. Management expects to complete development of a product
based on this technology and begin shipping it in fiscal 2000. The fourth
project is a Flight Yoke, which provides the intuitive motion and feel of an
airplane control yoke. It translates in and out to control the pitch, rotates
for roll control, and provides the corresponding feel along these axes of
motion. At the time of acquisition, the development was 49% completed and the
estimated cost to complete this development was $175,000. Management expects
that licensees will ship licensed products using this technology in fiscal 2001.
The fifth development project is a device that allows the user to physically
interact with computer generated three-dimensional objects. At the time of
acquisition, the development was 11% completed and the estimated cost to
complete this development was $248,000. Management expects that a product based
on this technology will become available for sale in fiscal 2000.
 
     We will begin to benefit from the acquired research and development of
these products once they begin shipping. Failure to reach successful completion
of these projects could result in impairment of the associated capitalized
intangible assets and could require us to accelerate the time period over which
the intangibles are being amortized, which could have a material adverse effect
on our business, financial condition and results of operation. Significant
assumptions used to determine the value of in-process research and development
include the following: (i) forecast of net cash flows that were expected to
result from the development effort
 
                                       26

<PAGE>   27
 
using projections prepared by us and the seller's management; (ii) the portion
of the projects completed estimated by considering a number of factors,
including the costs invested to date relative to total costs of the development
effort and the amount of development completed as of the acquisition date, on a
technological basis, relative to the overall technological achievements required
to achieve the functionality of the eventual product. The technological issues
were addressed by engineering representatives from both us and the seller, and
when estimating the value of the technology, the projected financial results of
the acquired assets were estimated on a stand-alone basis without any
consideration of potential synergistic benefits or "investment value" related to
the acquisition. As there were no existing products acquired, separate projected
cash flows were prepared for only the in-process projects.
 
     These projected results were based on the number of units sold times the
average selling price less the associated costs. After preparing the estimated
cash flows from the products being developed, a portion of these cash flows were
attributed to the existing technology, which was embodied in the in-process
product lines and enabled a quicker and more cost-effective development of these
products. When estimating the value of the in-process technologies, a discount
rate of 30% was used. The discount rate considered both the status and risks
associated with the cash flows at the acquisition date. Projected revenues from
the in-process products are expected to commence in 2000 and 2001 as the
products are completed and begin to ship. Initial annual revenue growth rates
after introduction are projected to exceed 50% and decline to less than 15% by
2005. Gross margins from these products are anticipated to be consistent with
the gross margins from our other products.
 
     We record revenues from product sales upon shipment. We recognize fixed-fee
contract revenue under the cost-to-cost percentage-of-completion accounting
method based on the actual physical completion of work performed and the ratio
of costs incurred to total estimated costs to complete the contract. We
recognize allowable fees under cost-reimbursement contracts as costs are
incurred. Losses on contracts are recognized when determined. Revisions in
estimates are reflected in the period in which the conditions become known. We
recognize royalty revenue based on royalty reports or related information
received from the licensee. On July 19, 1999, we entered into an irrevocable,
perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide license agreement with Microsoft under which
Microsoft paid us a lump sum of $2.35 million to cover all shipments of its
SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel and its SideWinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick
and a replacement version of these specific SideWinder products having
essentially similar functional features. Under the terms of the agreement, the
Company is to provide marketing services related to touch-enabling technology
and related products for a twelve-month period following the effective date of
the agreement. Accordingly, we will recognize the license payment as revenue
over this twelve-month period ending mid-July, 2000.
 
     Our cost of product sales consists primarily of materials, labor and
overhead. There is no cost of sales associated with royalty revenue or
development contract revenue. Our research and development expenses are
comprised primarily of headcount and related compensation and benefits,
consulting fees, costs of acquired technology, tooling and supplies and an
allocation of facilities costs. Our sales and marketing expenses are comprised
primarily of employee headcount and related compensation and benefits,
advertising, trade shows, brochures, travel and an allocation of facilities
costs. Our general and administrative expenses are comprised primarily of
employee headcount and related compensation and benefits, legal and professional
fees, office supplies, recruiting, travel and an allocation of facilities costs.
 
     We signed a co-marketing agreement with Logitech during the fourth quarter
of fiscal 1999 in which we agreed to assist Logitech with the launch and
promotion of its touch-enabled mice. Under the terms of the agreement, for a
period of five calendar quarters, beginning in the first calendar quarter of
2000, we are required to reimburse Logitech for certain marketing related
expenses not to exceed $200,000 per quarter, an expense funded with working
capital. Only third-party marketing services that are targeted at promoting
Logitech's touch-enabled mice are eligible for reimbursement. In addition, all
promotional activities must be approved by us in advance. In order to remain
eligible for reimbursement, Logitech must include our brand and slogan on all
its marketing materials that reference touch-enabled functionality or products,
and meet other conditions regarding its touch-enabled mice.

     We recorded deferred stock compensation of $1.5 million in 1999 from the
issuance of employee stock options. We are amortizing the deferred stock
compensation over the terms of the related option agreements, which range up to
four years.

COMPARISON OF YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998, AND 1997
 
     Total Revenues.  Our total revenues for the year ended December 31, 1999
increased to $8.0 million from $5.0 million in 1998, an increase of 60%. The
year over year increase was primarily the result of a $1.9 million or 595%
increase in royalty revenue due to increased 1999 sales by our I-FORCE licensees
and $ 1.1 million in revenues recognized under the Microsoft agreement. The
remainder of the 1999 increase in sales over 1998 was due to an increase in
product sales of $858,000 or 23%. The increase in product sales is mainly
attributed to a $566,000 increase in professional medical products, and $343,000
increase in microprocessor sales with smaller increases and decreases in other
product categories. Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 1998 grew by
$689,000 over total 1997 revenues. The 1998 increase was principally the result
of an $817,000 increase in product sales, primarily from our MicroScribe-3D and
industrial products, and a $307,000 increase in royalty revenue due to increased
sales by our I-FORCE licensees in 1998. The increase in product sales and
royalty revenue was partially offset by a $435,000 decrease in contract revenue.
 
     Cost of Product Sales.  Costs of product sales were $2.1 million in 1999,
$1.5 million in 1998 and $1.2 million in 1997. The $0.6 million increase in cost
of product sales in 1999 is mainly due higher sales volume, a 23% increase in
product sales over last year and increased sales of our microprocessors which
have a higher cost of sales as a percentage of product sales than our other
products. The $0.3 million increase in 1998 cost of product sales over 1997 was
due to increased product sales volume. Cost of product sales as a percentage of
product sales was 46% in 1999, 40% in 1998 and 41% in 1997. Cost of product
sales as a percentage of product sales increased in 1999 from 1998 primarily due
to a 276% increase in sales of our microprocessors, which have a higher cost as
a percentage of sales than our other products.

     Sales and Marketing.  Sales and marketing expenses grew to $1.8 million in
1999 from $656,000 in 1998 and remained constant at $658,000 in 1997. The $1.1
million or 175% increase in 1999 was primarily a result of increased headcount
and related compensation, benefits, and overhead costs of $606,000 and corporate
identity and web development costs of $319,000. We expect sales and marketing
expenses to increase significantly in absolute dollars due to planned growth of
our sales and marketing organization. These planned increases include higher
employee headcount and related compensation and increased advertising and
marketing expenses. These planned increases also include expenses related to a
co-marketing agreement that we entered into with Logitech in November 1999.
Under the co-marketing agreement, we agree to reimburse Logitech for certain
marketing-related expenses not to exceed $200,000 per quarter during a
five-quarter period beginning the first quarter of 2000.
 
     Research and Development.  Research and development expenses increased to
$2.3 million in 1999 from $1.8 million in 1998 and $1.5 million in 1997. The
$456,000 or 25% increase in 1999 is mainly due to a $421,000 increase in
employee headcount and the related compensation, benefits and overhead costs.
The increase from 1997 to 1998 was principally due to an increase in employee
headcount and related compensation of $424,000, partially offset by a decrease
in consulting services of $142,000. We believe that continued investment in
research and development is critical to our future success, and we expect these
expenses to increase in absolute dollars in future periods.
 
     General and Administrative.  General and administrative expenses increased
to $4.2 million in 1999 from $2.7 million in 1998 and $1.6 million in 1997. The
$1.5 million or 56% increase in 1999 is mainly attributed to an increase of
$576,000 in employee headcount and related compensation, benefits, overhead
costs and a $824,000 increase in recruiting costs. The recruiting expenses are
predominantly from cash and stock compensation given to a recruiter for
identifying and employing three senior members of our management team. The
increase from 1997 to 1998 was principally due to an increase in employee
headcount and related compensation and benefits of $584,000, an increase in
legal and professional fees of $147,000 and an increase in consulting services
of $109,000. We expect that the dollar amount of general and administrative
expenses will increase in the future as we incur the significant additional
costs related to being a public company.
 
     Amortization of Intangibles and Stock Compensation.  Amortization of
intangibles and stock compensation expense grew by $1.1 million in 1999 to $1.3
million from $211,000 in 1998. We did not incur amortization expenses related to
intangibles or stock compensation in 1997. Amortization of licenses and patents
was $551,000 in 1999 and $211,000 in 1998 representing a $340,000 increase year
over year. The remainder of the 1999 increase is due to $482,000 of amortization
on a consulting agreement signed in March 1999 and $306,000 of stock
compensation amortization.
 
     In-Process Research and Development.  During the year ended December
31,1999 we incurred a charge of $1.2 million for in-process research and
development resulting from the March 1999 acquisition of patents and in-process
technology from Cybernet. The patents and technology were acquired in exchange
for 1,291,200 shares of our common stock. We capitalized $3.6 million of
purchased patents and technology in connection with this acquisition.
Strategically, this acquisition allowed us to increase the strength of our
intellectual property portfolio by obtaining Cybernet's portfolio of issued
patents and pending patent applications relating to hardware mechanisms and
software architectures designed to deliver tactile sensations to computer users.
It also allowed us to obtain five in-process research and development projects
that embody aspects of the acquired intellectual property, and that have
potential commercial value. These include a flexible force feedback development
environment that allows developers to implement varying levels of force feedback
functionality; a three-degree-of-freedom joystick that uses brushless motor and
encoder technology; a six-degree-of-freedom hand controller; a flight yoke that
realistically simulates the motion and feel of airplane controls; and a device
that allows the user to touch three-dimensional objects.
 
     Other Income.  Other income consists primarily of interest income, dividend
income and capital gains from cash and cash equivalents and short-term
investments. Other income was $488,000 in 1999, $174,000 in 1998 and $50,000 in
1997. The significant increase in 1999 is due to the increase in cash and cash
equivalents and short-term investments chiefly from the $48.3 million net
proceeds of our public offering on November 12,
 
                                       29

<PAGE>   30
 
1999. The 1998 increase over 1997 other income is largely due to increases in
cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of those years.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
     Prior to our initial public offering on November 12, 1999 we funded our
operations primarily from the sale of preferred stock. Net proceeds from the
initial public offering were $48.3 million. As of December 31, 1999, we had an
accumulated deficit of $8.6 million and working capital of $51.3 million,
including cash and cash equivalents of $46.5 million.
 
     Net cash provided by operating activities during 1999 was $740,000,
primarily attributable to noncash charges of $3.5 million, a $1.3 million
increase in deferred revenue and increases in accounts payable and accrued
liabilities of $770,000, partially offset by a $381,000 increase in prepaid
expenses and other assets and a net loss of $4.4 million. Deferred revenue at
December 31, 1999 of $1.3 million represents the unamortized portion of the
$2.35 million license payment received from Microsoft in July 1999. In 1998, net
cash used in operating activities was $1.8 million, primarily attributable to a
net loss of $1.7 million, an increase of $592,000 in accounts receivable and an
increase of $186,000 in inventories. In 1997, net cash used in operating
activities was $237,000, primarily attributable to a net loss of $527,000,
largely offset by an increase in accounts payable of $189,000.
 
     Net cash used in investing activities during 1999 was $5.4 million and
primarily consisted of purchases of $4.8 million of short-term investments and
$1.1 million of property and equipment, intangibles, and other assets, offset by
$403,000 from sales of short-term investments. In 1998, net cash provided by
investing activities was $237,000, attributable to $3.8 million from sales of
short-term investments primarily offset by $2.9 million of purchases of
short-term investments and $434,000 for purchases of patents and technology. In
1997, net cash used in investing activities was $1.2 million, and was
attributable to $1.5 million of purchases of short-term investments and $205,000
of purchases of property, offset by $538,000 from sales of short-term
investments. In order to improve our rate of return on cash and still provide
short-term liquidity, we periodically purchase or sell short-term investments,
which typically are interest-bearing, investment-grade securities with a
maturity of greater than 90 days and less than one year.
 
     Net cash provided by financing activities during 1999 was $48.6 million,
and consisted primarily of net proceeds of $48.3 million from our initial public
offering of common stock in November, 1999 and $323,000 from the exercise of
stock options and warrants. In 1998, net cash provided by financing activities
was $3.7 million and was attributable primarily to net proceeds of $5.4 million
from the sale of preferred stock, offset by the repurchase of $1.8 million of
stock. In 1997, net cash provided by financing activities was $1.6 million and
was attributable primarily to the proceeds of $1.5 million from the sale of
preferred stock.
 
     We believe that our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, will
be sufficient to meet our working capital needs and capital expenditure
requirements for at least the next 12 months. We anticipate that capital
expenditures for the full year ended December 31, 2000 will total approximately
$2.0 million in connection with anticipated growth in operations, infrastructure
and personnel. If the Company acquires one or more businesses or products, the
Company's capital requirements could increase substantially. In the event of
such an acquisition or should any unanticipated circumstances arise which
significantly increase the Company's capital requirements, there can be no
assurance that necessary additional capital will be available on terms
acceptable to the Company, if at all.
 
RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
     In June 1998, the FASB issued SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative
Instruments and Hedging Activities. This statement requires companies to record
derivatives on the balance sheet as assets or liabilities measured at fair
value. Gains or losses resulting from changes in the values of those derivatives
would be accounted for depending on the use of the derivative and whether it
qualifies for hedge accounting. SFAS No. 133 will be effective for us beginning
in 2001. We believe that this statement will not have a significant impact on
our financial condition and results of operations.

I
TEM 7A.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
     Interest Rate Sensitivity.  Our operating results have not been sensitive
to changes in the general level of U.S. interest rates, particularly because
most of our cash equivalents are invested in short-term debt instruments. If
market interest rates were to change immediately and uniformly by 10% from
levels at December 31, 1999, the fair value of our cash equivalents would not
change by a significant amount.
 
     Foreign Currency Fluctuations.  We have not had any significant
transactions in foreign currencies, nor did we have any significant balances
that were due or payable in foreign currencies at December 31, 1999. Therefore,
a hypothetical 10% change in foreign currency rates would not have a significant
impact on our financial position and results of operations. We do not hedge any
of our foreign currency exposure.

                          INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT
 
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
  of Immersion Corporation:
 
     We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Immersion
Corporation and its subsidiary (the Company) as of December 31, 1999 and 1998,
and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity and
comprehensive loss and cash flows for each of the three years in the period
ended December 31, 1999. These consolidated financial statements are the
responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an
opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
     We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain
reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are
free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis,
evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and
significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall
financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
     In our opinion, such consolidated financial statements present fairly, in
all material respects, the financial position of Immersion Corporation and its
subsidiary at December 31, 1999 and 1998, and the results of its operations and
its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 1999
in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

                   NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
1. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
     Description of Business -- Immersion Corporation was incorporated in May
1993 in California and provides technologies that enable users to interact with
computers using their sense of touch.
 
     Principles of Consolidation -- The consolidated financial statements
include the accounts of Immersion Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary
(the "Company"). All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated
in consolidation.
 
     Cash Equivalents -- The Company considers all highly liquid debt or equity
instruments purchased with an original maturity at the date of purchase of 90
days or less to be cash equivalents.
 
     Short-Term Investments -- Short-term investments consist primarily of
highly liquid debt instruments purchased with an original maturity at the date
of purchase of greater than 90 days and investments in mutual funds. Short-term
investments are classified as available-for-sale securities and are stated at
market value with unrealized gains and losses reported as a component of
accumulated other comprehensive loss within stockholders' equity.
 
     Inventories -- Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in,
first-out basis) or market.
 
     Property -- Property is stated at cost and is depreciated using the
straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the related asset. The
estimated useful lives are as follows:
 

<TABLE>
<S>                                                             <C>
Computer equipment and purchased software...................    3 years
Machinery and equipment.....................................    5 years
Furniture and fixtures......................................    5 years
</TABLE>

 
     Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the lease term or
their useful life.
 
     Purchased Patents and Technology -- Purchased patents and technology are
stated at cost and are amortized over the shorter of the remaining life of the
patent or the estimated useful life of the technology, generally nine years.
 
     Accumulated amortization was $714,000 and $221,000 at December 31, 1999 and
1998 respectively.
 
     Long-Lived Assets -- The Company reviews for the impairment of a long-lived
asset whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying
amount of that asset may not be recoverable. An impairment loss would be
recognized when the sum of the undiscounted future net cash flows expected to
result from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition is less than its
carrying amount.
 
     Product Warranty -- The Company sells the majority of its products with
warranties ranging from three to twelve months. Historically, warranty-related
costs have been immaterial.
 
     Note Receivable from Stockholder -- The note receivable from stockholder
was issued in exchange for common stock, bears interest at 5.39% per annum and
is due March 2001.
 
     Revenue Recognition -- Revenues from product sales are recorded upon
shipment. Revenues from development contracts with the U.S. Government and other
commercial customers are derived from either fixed price or reimbursement of
costs contracts. Contract revenues are recognized under the cost-to-cost
percentage-of-completion accounting method based on the actual physical
completion of work performed and the ratio of costs incurred to total estimated
costs to complete the contract. Losses on contracts are recognized when
determined. Revisions in estimates are reflected in the period in which the
conditions become known. Allowable fees under cost-reimbursement contracts are
recognized as costs are incurred. The Company recognizes royalty revenue based
on royalty reports or related information received from the licensee. Advance
payments under license agreements that also require the Company to provide
future services to the licensee

           NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED)
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
are deferred and recognized over the service period when vendor specific
objective evidence related to the value of the services does not exist.
 
     At December 31, 1999, the Company has no obligation to repay amounts
received under development contracts with the U.S. government or other
commercial customers.
 
     Advertising -- Advertising costs are expensed as incurred and included in
sales and marketing expense. Advertising expense was $153,000, $147,000, and
$164,000 in 1999, 1998 and 1997 respectively.
 
     Research and Development -- Research and development costs are expensed as
incurred. The Company has generated revenues from development contracts with the
U.S. Government and other commercial customers that have enabled it to
accelerate its own product development efforts. Such development revenues have
only partially funded the Company's product development activities, and the
Company generally retains ownership of the products developed under these
arrangements. As a result, the Company classifies all development costs related
to these contracts as research and development expenses.
 
     Income Taxes -- The Company provides for income taxes using the asset and
liability approach defined by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards
("SFAS") No. 109.
 
     Software Development Costs -- Certain of the Company's products include
software. Costs for the development of new software products and substantial
enhancements to existing software products are expensed as incurred until
technological feasibility has been established, at which time any additional
costs would be capitalized in accordance with SFAS No 86, Computer Software to
be Sold, Leased or Otherwise Marketed. The Company considers technological
feasibility to be established upon completion of a working model of the software
and the related hardware. Because the Company believes its current process for
developing software is essentially completed concurrently with the establishment
of technological feasibility, no costs have been capitalized to date.
 
     Stock-Based Compensation -- The Company accounts for its stock-based awards
to employees using the intrinsic value method in accordance with Accounting
Principles Board ("APB") Opinion No. 25, Accounting for Stock issued to
Employees.
 
     Comprehensive Income -- In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards
Board ("FASB") issued SFAS No. 130, Reporting Comprehensive Income, which
requires that an enterprise report, by major components and as a single total,
the change in its net assets during the period from nonowner sources. The
Company adopted this statement in 1998 and has presented its total comprehensive
loss in the statements of stockholders' equity. Accumulated other comprehensive
loss during 1999, 1998 and 1997 is comprised of unrealized gains on
available-for-sale investments of $19,000, $1,000 and $2,000, respectively.
 
     Net Loss per Share -- Basic net loss per share excludes dilution and is
computed by dividing net loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted
average number of common shares outstanding for the period (excluding shares
subject to repurchase). Diluted net loss per common share was the same as basic
net loss per common share for all periods presented since the effect of any
potentially dilutive securities is excluded as they are anti-dilutive because of
the Company's net losses.
 
     Use of Estimates -- The preparation of consolidated financial statements in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to
make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and
expenses during the reporting period. These management estimates include the
allowance for doubtful accounts and the net realizable value of inventory.
Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
     Concentration of Credit Risks -- Financial instruments that potentially
subject the Company to a concentration of credit risk principally consist of
cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and
 
                                       39

           NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED)
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
accounts receivable. The Company invests primarily in money market accounts,
commercial paper, and debt securities of U.S. Government agencies. The Company
sells products primarily to companies in North America, Europe and the Far East.
A majority of these sales are to customers in the personal computer industry. To
reduce credit risk, management performs periodic credit evaluations of its
customers' financial condition. The Company maintains reserves for potential
credit losses, but historically has not experienced any significant losses
related to individual customers or groups of customers in any particular
industry or geographic area.
 
     Certain Significant Risks and Uncertainties -- The Company operates in a
dynamic industry and, accordingly, can be affected by a variety of factors. For
example, management of the Company believes that changes in any of the following
areas could have a negative effect on the Company in terms of its future
financial position and results of operations: its ability to obtain additional
financing; the mix of revenues; the loss of significant customers; fundamental
changes in the technology underlying the Company's products; market acceptance
of the Company's and its licensees' products under development; the availability
of contract manufacturing capacity; development of sales channels; litigation or
other claims against the Company; the hiring, training and retention of key
employees; successful and timely completion of product and technology
development efforts; and new product or technology introductions by competitors.
 
     Fair Value of Financial Instruments -- Financial instruments consist
primarily of cash equivalents and short-term investments. Cash equivalents and
short-term investments are stated at fair value based on quoted market prices.
 
     Recently Issued Accounting Standards -- In June 1997, the FASB issued SFAS
No. 131, Disclosures About Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information,
which establishes annual and interim reporting standards for an enterprise's
business segments and related disclosures about its products, services,
geographic areas and major customers. The Company currently operates in one
reportable segment under SFAS No. 131.
 
     In June 1998, the FASB issued SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative
Instruments and Hedging Activities. This statement requires companies to record
derivatives on the balance sheet as assets or liabilities measured at fair
value. Gains or losses resulting from changes in the values of those derivatives
would be accounted for depending on the use of the derivative and whether it
qualifies for hedge accounting. SFAS No. 133 will be effective for the Company's
year ending December 31, 2001. Management believes that this statement will not
have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of
operations.
 
     Reclassifications -- Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to
conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect
on net loss or stockholders' equity.
 
2. PURCHASED PATENTS AND TECHNOLOGY
 
     During 1998, the Company entered into a license agreement and acquired
various patents relating to touch-enabling technology. In connection with these
agreements, the Company paid $434,000, issued 137,190 shares of common stock and
issued an option to purchase 242,100 shares of common stock at $3.66 per share
(see Note 7). The Company has recorded the estimated fair value of the aggregate
consideration of $1,154,000 as purchased patents and technology.
 
     In February 1999, the Company acquired certain patents and related
materials pertaining to touch-enabling technology from another company in
exchange for $25,000 in cash and 88,770 shares of the Company's common stock. In
addition, the Company is required to issue an additional 16,140 shares of common
stock to the seller if the Company is successful in obtaining either a reissue
or a foreign version of at least one of the patents. The Company's stock issued
in this transaction is being held in escrow until the successful reissue of at
least one of the patents. If this condition is not met at the end of five years
and the stock is therefore still held in escrow, the seller has the right to put
the shares back to the Company for $3.72 per share. The existence of the put
option has the effect of increasing the value assigned to the shares issued to
 
                                       40

<PAGE>   41
           NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED)
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
$3.72 per share. As a result, the estimated value of $355,000 (representing
88,770 shares at $3.72 per share plus $25,000) has been recorded as purchased
patents and technology.
 
     In March 1999, the Company acquired certain additional patents relating to
touch-enabling technologies and in-process research and development from another
company in exchange for 1,291,200 shares of the Company's common stock with an
estimated fair value of $4,720,000. The seller had the option to put 807,000 of
the shares back to the Company after five years and to require the Company to
return the patents, subject to the Company's retaining a non-exclusive license
to the patents. This put option expired upon our initial public offering in
November, 1999. The Company has included in the aggregate purchase price of the
purchased patents and in-process research and development the estimated fair
value of $42,000 for the put option and $45,000 of direct acquisition costs. The
aggregate purchase price of $4,807,000 has been allocated $3,617,000 to
purchased patents and technology and $1,190,000 to acquired in-process research
and development. The purchased patents and technology are being amortized over
the estimated useful life of nine years. The allocation of the purchase price to
the respective intangibles was based on management's estimates of the after-tax
cash flows and gave explicit consideration to the Securities and Exchange
Commission's views on purchased in-process research and development as set forth
in its September 9, 1998 letter to the American Institute of Certified Public
Accountants. Specifically, the valuation gave consideration to the following:
(i) the employment of a fair market value premise excluding any Company-specific
considerations that could result in estimates of investment value for the
subject assets; (ii) comprehensive due diligence concerning all potential
intangible assets; (iii) the determination that none of the technology
development had been completed at the time of acquisition; and (iv) the
allocation to in-process research and development based on a calculation that
considered only the efforts completed as of the transaction date, and only the
cash flow associated with these completed efforts for one generation of the
products currently in process. As indicated above, the Company recorded a
one-time charge of $1,190,000 upon the acquisition in March 1999 for purchased
in-process research and development related to five development projects. The
charge related to the portion of these products that had not reached
technological feasibility, had no alternative future use and for which
successful development was uncertain. Management's conclusion that the
in-process development effort had no alternative future use was reached in
consultation with the engineering personnel from both the Company and the
seller.
 
     The first of these projects is a flexible force feedback development
environment that allows developers to choose the level of
complexity/functionality that fits their needs. At the time of acquisition, the
development was 81% complete and the estimated cost to complete this development
was $438,000. Management expects to complete this development of this product
and begin shipping it in September 2001. The second of these projects, a
three-degree-of-freedom joystick, gives the operator smooth, intuitive movement
and feedback along three axes -- roll, pitch and yaw -- using brushless motor
and encoder technology. At the time of acquisition, the development was 36%
complete and the estimated cost to complete this development was $109,000.
Management expects products based on this technology to become available in
December 2000. The third of these projects, a six-degree-of-freedom hand
controller, is a small back drivable robot that moves in six degrees of freedom,
three linear positions and attitudes. At the time of acquisition, the
development was 70% completed and the estimated cost to complete this
development was $88,000. Management expects to complete development of this
product and begin shipping it in June 2001. The fourth project is a Flight Yoke,
which provides the intuitive motion and feel of an airplane control yoke. It
translates in and out to control the pitch, rotates for roll control, and
provides the corresponding feel along these axes of motion. At the time of
acquisition, the development was 49% completed and the estimated cost to
complete this development was $175,000. Management expects that licensees will
ship products in fiscal 2001. The fifth development project is a device that
allows the user to physically interact with computer generated three-dimensional
objects. At the time of acquisition, the development was 11% completed and the
estimated cost to complete this development was $248,000. Management expects
that the product will become available for sale in fiscal 2000.
 
                                       41

           NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED)
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
     The Company will begin to benefit from the acquired research and
development of these products once they begin shipping. Failure to reach
successful completion of these projects could result in impairment of the
associated capitalized intangible assets and could require the Company to
accelerate the time period over which the intangibles are being amortized, which
could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition and results of operation. Significant assumptions used to determine
the value of in-process research and development, include the following: (i)
forecast of net cash flows that were expected to result from the development
effort using projections prepared by the Company's and the seller's management;
(ii) the portion of the projects estimated by considering a number of factors,
including the costs invested to date relative to total cost of the development
effort and the amount of progress completed as of the acquisition date, on a
technological basis, relative to the overall technological achievements required
to achieve the functionality of the eventual product. The technological issues
were addressed by engineering representatives from both the Company and the
seller, and when estimating the value of the technology, the projected financial
results of the acquired assets were estimated on a stand-alone basis without any
consideration to potential synergistic benefits or "investment value" related to
the acquisition. As there were no existing products acquired, separate projected
cash flows were prepared for only the in-process projects.
 
     These projected results were based on the number of units sold times the
average selling price less the associated costs. After preparing the estimated
cash flows from the products being developed, a portion of these cash flows were
attributed to the existing technology, which was embodied in the in-process
product lines and enabled a quicker and more cost-effective development of these
products. When estimating the value of the in-process technologies, a discount
rate of 30% was used. The discount rate considered both the status and risks
associated with the cash flows at the acquisition date. Projected revenues from
the in-process products are expected to commence in 2000 and 2001 as the
products are completed and begin to ship. Initial annual revenue growth rates
after introduction are projected to exceed 50% and decline to less than 15% by
2005. Gross margins from these products are anticipated to be consistent with
the gross margins from its other products.
 
     The technology was acquired in a transaction that was tax-free to the
seller and, as a result, the Company has a minimal tax basis in the acquired
technology. Accordingly, a deferred tax liability of $1,410,000 has been
recorded for the difference in the book and tax bases of the acquired assets.
This resulted in the concurrent recognition of previously reserved deferred tax
assets of an equal amount. Also, in connection with this acquisition, the
Company entered into a consulting arrangement with the seller to provide
consulting services related to the development of various platforms of
touch-enabling technology, and collaborate with the Company, in executing
development agreements with the U.S. government and other commercial customers
for a three year period. In consideration for certain consulting services and
rights, the Company granted to the seller a warrant to purchase 322,800 shares
of the Company's common stock at $3.66 per share (see Note 7), paid the seller
$150,000, and is obligated to pay an additional $75,000 in 2000 and 2001. The
consideration for the consulting services of $1,108,000, including the estimated
fair value of the warrant ($808,000), has been recorded as prepaid expenses and
noncurrent other assets. The consideration for the consulting service will be
amortized over the two-year estimated period of benefit of the consulting
services. The warrants were fully vested at the date of grant. Accordingly, the
fair value of the warrants was determined at the date of grant using the methods
specified by SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation ("SFAS 123"),
with the following assumptions: expected life, 10 years; risk free interest
rate, 5.7%; volatility, 50% and no dividends during the expected term.
 
     Also during 1999, in consideration for a technology license agreement, the
Company issued an option to purchase 20,175 shares of common stock at an
exercise price of $3.66 per share. The Company has recorded the estimated fair
value of the option of $129,000 as purchased patents and technology at December
31, 1999 (see Note 7).

     The Company has signed an agreement with a significant customer to
co-market a licensed product. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, the

7. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
 
     Common Stock -- On November 12, 1999, the Company completed its initial
public offering ("IPO") of 4,887,500 shares of its common stock (including
637,500 shares issued upon the exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment
option) at $12.00 per share. Of the 4,887,500 shares sold 4,473,736 shares were
sold by the Company and 413,764 shares were sold by selling shareholders. Net
proceeds to the Company, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions
and offering expenses, aggregated approximately $48.3 million. At the closing of
the initial public offering all preferred stock was converted to common stock.
 
     Common stock issued to the founders and certain other employees is subject
to repurchase agreements under which the Company has the option to repurchase
the unvested shares upon termination of employment at the original issue price.
The Company's repurchase right generally lapses over four years. At December 31,
1999, the Company's repurchase rights had lapsed. At December 31, 1998, 23,537
shares of common stock were subject to repurchase by the Company.
 
     During 1999, the Company issued 1,379,970 shares of common stock in
connection with purchases of patents and technology (see Note 2) and 68,595
shares of common stock with a fair value of $562,000 for recruiting services.
During 1998, the Company issued 137,190 shares of common stock in connection
with purchases of patents. The fair value of the common stock of $501,000 was
recorded as purchased patents and technology
 
     Stock Split -- In November 1999, the Company's Board of Directors approved
a 0.807-for-one reverse common and Series C and D preferred stock split and a
4.035-for-one Series A and B preferred stock split. All references to share and
per-share date for all periods presented have been retroactively adjusted to
give effect to the split.
 
     Common Stock Warrants -- During June 1997, the Company issued a warrant to
purchase 91,191 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of
$0.19 per share to a Series C preferred investor. The warrant is exercisable
through 2002. The estimated fair value of this warrant of $6,000 has been
accounted for as a reduction to the Series C preferred stock financing proceeds.
 
     In connection with the sale of Series D preferred stock, the Company issued
a warrant to purchase 11,972 shares of Series D preferred stock at an exercise
price of $4.18 to an investment banker. The estimated

                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
fair value of this warrant of $17,000 has been accounted for as a reduction to
the Series D preferred stock financing proceeds. At the closing of our initial
public offering, this warrant to purchase preferred stock was converted to a
warrant to purchase common stock.
 
     As discussed in Note 2, during March 1999, the Company issued a warrant to
purchase 322,800 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of
$3.66 per share for consulting services. The warrant is exercisable through
2009. The estimated fair value of the warrant of $808,000 has been recorded as
prepaid consulting services and is being amortized over the service period of
two years.
 
     Stock Options -- Under the Company's stock option plans, the Company may
grant options to purchase up to 7,991,975 shares of common stock to employees,
directors and consultants at prices not less than the fair market value on the
date of grant for incentive stock options and not less than 85% of fair market
value on the date of grant for nonstatutory stock options. These options
generally expire ten years from the date of grant. The Company has granted
immediately exercisable options as well as options that become exercisable over
periods ranging from three months to four years.
 
     Details of activity under the option plans are as follows:

           NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED)
 
                  YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999, 1998 AND 1997
 
     Additional Stock Plan Information -- As discussed in Note 1, the Company
accounted for its stock-based awards using the intrinsic value method in
accordance with APB No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees and its
related interpretations. SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation
("SFAS 123"), requires the disclosure of pro forma net loss had the Company
adopted the fair value method as of the beginning of fiscal 1996. Under SFAS
123, the fair value of stock-based awards to employees is calculated through the
use of option pricing models, even though these models were developed to
estimate the fair value of freely tradable, fully transferable options without
vesting restrictions, which significantly differ from the Company's stock option
awards. These models also require subjective assumptions, including future stock
price volatility and expected time to exercise, which greatly affect the
calculated values. The Company's calculations were made using the minimum value
method with the following weighted average assumptions: expected life, 18 months
following vesting; risk free interest rate, 5.4%, 5.3%, and 6.0% in 1999, 1998,
and 1997 respectively; volatility, 50% subsequent to the initial public filing
in November, 1999, and no dividends during the expected term. The Company's fair
value calculations on stock-based awards under the 1999 Employee Stock Purchase
Plan were also made using the option pricing model with the following weighted
average assumptions: expected life, eighteen months; volatility, 50%; risk free
interest rate, 5.4%; and no dividends during the expected term. The Company's
calculations are based on a multiple option valuation approach and forfeitures
are recognized as they occur. If the computed fair values of the awards issued
in 1999, 1998, and 1997 had been amortized to expense over the vesting periods
of the awards, pro forma net loss would have been $4,984,000 ($.76 net loss per
share), $1,885,000 ($0.48 net loss per share) and $545,000 ($0.17 net loss per
share) in 1999, 1998, and 1997, respectively.
 
     The Company had outstanding nonstatutory stock options to consultants to
purchase 203,604, 153,570, and 104,182 shares of common stock at December
31,1999, 1998 and 1997, respectively. Compensation expense of $138,000, $68,000,
and $5,000 was recognized as result of these options in 1999, 1998, and 1997,
respectively. The fair value of the unvested portion of these options is being
amortized over the vesting period. The fair value attributable to the unvested
portion of these options is subject to adjustment based upon the future value of
the Company's common stock. The fair values of these options were determined at
the date of vesting using the methods specified by SFAS 123 with the following
weighted average assumptions during 1999, 1998, and 1997, respectively: expected
life, 10 years; risk free interest rate, 5.2%, 5.3% and 6.0%; volatility, 50%;
and no dividends during the expected term. Forfeitures are recognized as they
occur.
 
     In addition, the Company granted nonstatutory stock options to purchase
20,175 and 242,100 shares of common stock in 1999 and 1998, respectively, in
connection with licensing of technology and the acquisition of patents (see Note
2). The estimated fair value of these options of $129,000 and $219,000,
respectively, has been recorded as purchased patents and technology. These
options were fully vested at the date of grant. Accordingly, the fair value of
the options was determined at the date of grant using the methods specified by
SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation ("SFAS 123"), with the
following assumptions during 1999 and 1998, respectively: expected life, 10
years; risk free interest rate, 5.0% and 5.5%; volatility, 50% and 25%; and no
dividends during the expected term.
 
     Employee Stock Purchase Plan -- Upon the closing of the Company's initial
public offering on November 12, 1999 the company adopted its' 1999 Employee
Stock Purchase Plan ("ESPP"). Under the ESPP, eligible employees may purchase
common stock through payroll deductions at a purchase price of 85% of the lower
of the fair market value of the Company's stock at the beginning of the offering
period or the purchase date. Participants may not purchase more than 1,000
shares in a six-month offering period or stock having a value greater than
$25,000 in any calendar year as measured at the beginning of the offering
period. A total of 500,000 shares of common stock are reserved for the issuance
under the ESPP plus an automatic annual increase on January 1, 2000 and on each
January 1 thereafter through January 1, 2010 by an amount equal to the lesser of
500,000 share per year or number of shares determined by the Board of Directors.
As of December 31, 1999 no shares had been purchased under the plan.

     Deferred Stock Compensation -- In connection with grants of certain stock
options to employees and directors in the twelve months ended December 31, 1999,
the Company recorded $1,473,000 for the difference between the deemed fair value
for accounting purposes and the stock price as determined by the Board of
Directors on the date of grant. This amount has been presented as a reduction of
stockholders' equity and is being amortized to expense over the vesting period
of the related stock options (generally four years). Amortization of deferred
stock compensation for the twelve months ended December 31, 1999 was $306,000.

     The Company's computation of net loss per share excludes 88,770 shares held
in escrow as discussed in Note 2, as the conditions required to release these
shares from escrow had not been satisfied as of December 31, 1999.
 
     For the above-mentioned periods, the Company had securities outstanding
that could potentially dilute basic earnings per share in the future, but were
excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share in the periods
presented since their effect would have been anti-dilutive. These outstanding
securities consisted of the following:

9. INCOME TAXES
 
     No provision for federal income taxes was required for the years ended
December 31, 1999, 1998 and 1997 due to the Company's net losses in these
periods.
 
     Significant components of the net deferred tax assets and liabilities for
federal and state income taxes consisted of:

     As discussed in Note 2, a deferred tax liability relating to a difference
in the tax basis for purchased technology was established in 1999. This resulted
in the concurrent $1.4 million reversal of the valuation reserve for deferred
tax assets.
 
     The Company's effective tax rate differed from the expected benefit at the
federal statutory tax rate as follows:

</TABLE>

 
     Substantially all of the Company's loss from operations for all periods
presented is generated from domestic operations.
 
     At December 31, 1999, the Company has federal and state net operating loss
carryforwards of approximately $2,706,000 and $1,141,000, respectively, expiring
through 2019 and through 2004, respectively.
 
     Current federal and state tax laws include provisions limiting the annual
use of net operating loss carryforwards in the event of certain defined changes
in stock ownership. The Company's issuances of common and preferred stock may
have resulted in such a change. Accordingly, the annual use of the Company's net
operating loss carryforwards would be limited according to these provisions.
Management has not yet determined the extent of this limitation, and this
limitation may result in the loss of carryforward benefits due to their
expiration.

10. SEGMENT INFORMATION, OPERATIONS BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA AND SIGNIFICANT CUSTOMERS
 
     The Company operates in one business segment, which is the design,
development, production, marketing and licensing of products based on
touch-enabling technology. These devices are used in computer entertainment,
personal computing, medical and other professional computing applications. The
Company operates entirely in North America and does not maintain operations in
other countries. The following is a summary of revenues within geographic areas.
Revenues are broken out geographically by the ship-to location of the customer.

  Significant Customers
 
     In 1999, 26% of our total revenues came from two unrelated customers, each
customer accounted for 13% of our total revenues. In 1998, a preferred
stockholder and an unrelated customer accounted for 11% and 10% of total
revenues, respectively. In 1997, one unrelated customer accounted for 24% of
total revenue.
 
     Receivables due from one unrelated customer was $137,000 at December 31,
1999. Receivables due from a preferred stockholder were $387,000 at December 31,
1998. Receivables due from two unrelated customers were $158,000 and $57,000,
respectively, at December 31, 1997.
 
11. EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLAN
 
     The Company has a 401(k) tax-deferred savings plan under which eligible
employees may elect to have a portion of their salary deferred and contributed
to the 401(k) plan. Contributions may be made by the Company at the discretion
of the Board of Directors. As of December 31, 1999 the Company recorded expenses
of $42,000, none, and none for 1999, 1998 and 1997 respectively.
 
12. RELATED PARTIES
 
     In July 1997, the Company transferred certain patent rights related to its
MicroScribe product to a newly created limited liability corporation,
MicroScribe LLC, in exchange for 1,000 Class 1 Units and 98,999 Class 2 Units.
This investment represents a 99% ownership of MicroScribe LLC. Subsequently, the
Company distributed all Class 2 Units to its then outstanding common, preferred
and vested option holders on a pro rata basis. The Company maintains a 1%
ownership of MicroScribe LLC subsequent to the distribution of the Class 2
Units. There was no recorded value related to these internally-developed patent
agreements, and thus no amount was recognized as a result of the transfer.
 
     During July 1997, the Company also entered into an exclusive ten-year
license agreement with MicroScribe LLC (the "Agreement") for the right to
manufacture, market and sell the related MicroScribe technology. Under the terms
of the Agreement, the Company must pay a royalty to MicroScribe LLC based on a
variable percentage of net receipts as defined under the Agreement. Royalty
expense under the Agreement was $132,000, $116,000 and $49,000 in 1999, 1998 and
1997, respectively.

     As discussed in Note 10, a preferred stockholder accounted for $249,000 of
royalty revenue and $316,000 of development contract revenue in 1998.
 
13. CONTINGENCIES
 
     The Company has received claims from third parties asserting that the
Company's technologies, or those of its licensees, infringe on the other
parties' intellectual property rights. Management believes that these claims are
without merit and, with respect to each, has obtained or is in the process of
obtaining written non-infringement and/or patent invalidity opinions from
outside patent counsel. Accordingly, in the opinion of management, the outcome
of such claims will not have a material effect on the financial statements of
the Company.
 
14. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
     On March 9, 2000, the Company completed its acquisition of Montreal-based
Haptic Technologies Inc. for approximately $7.0 million, consisting of 141,538
shares of Company's common stock and $338,000 paid in cash. Haptic develops and
markets hardware and software that brings the sense of touch to computing
environments. As a result of the acquisition Haptic becomes a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Immersion and will continue operations in Montreal, Canada. The
acquisition was accounted for using the purchase method. In connection with the
transaction, the Company assumed unvested options of Haptic resulting in
deferred stock compensation of $5.5 million which will be amortized over the
remaining vesting period of approximately four years.

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Immersion Corporation:
 
     We have audited the consolidated financial statements of Immersion
Corporation as of December 31, 1999 and 1998, and for each of the three years in
the period ended December 31, 1999, and have issued our report thereon dated
February 4, 2000. Our audits also included the consolidated financial statement
schedule of Immersion Corporation, listed in the Index at Item 14(a)(2). This
consolidated financial statement schedule is the responsibility of the Company's
management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion based on our audits. In
our opinion, such consolidated financial statement schedule, when considered in
relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole,
presents fairly in all material respects the information set forth therein.

                   of any other Person; or

            (x)    any Contract made out of the Ordinary Course.

      (o)   NO BREACH OF MATERIAL CONTRACTS. Corporation has performed all of
            the obligations required to be performed by it and is entitled to
            all benefits under, and is not alleged to be in default of any
            Material Contract to which it is a party.  Each of the Material
            Contracts is in full force and effect, unamended, and there
            exists no default or event of default or event, occurrence,
            condition or act (including the purchase of the Purchased Shares)
            which, with the giving of notice, the lapse of time or the
            happening of any other event or condition, would become a default
            or event of default under any Material Contract.  True, correct
            and complete copies of all Material Contracts have been delivered
            to Purchaser.

                  or convey, or that otherwise affects, its Intellectual
                  Property, nor has any Person been granted any interest in or
                  right to use all or any portion of the Intellectual Property.

                  Vendors has knowledge of any infringement or violation of any
                  of its rights or the rights of Corporation in the Intellectual
                  Property. To the knowledge of each of the Vendors, the conduct
                  of the business of Corporation does not infringe upon the
                  patents, trade marks, licences, trade names, business names,
                  copyright or other industrial or intellectual property rights,

            Corporation in the Ordinary Course.

      (r)   FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.  The Financial Statements and the Interim

      (u)   EMPLOYEES.  Except as set forth in Schedule 3.2(u):

            (i)   there is no collective agreement in force with respect to
                  the employees of Corporation, no collective agreement is
                  currently being negotiated by Corporation, no union or
                  employee bargaining agent holds bargaining rights with
                  respect to any employees of Corporation and there are no
                  current or, to the Vendors' knowledge, threatened attempts
                  to organize or establish any trade union or employee
                  association with respect to Corporation.  There is no
                  unfair labour practice complaint pending or, to the
                  Vendors' knowledge, threatened against Corporation and
                  there is no labour strike, slow down, work stoppage or
                  lockout in effect or, to the Vendors' knowledge, threatened
                  against Corporation nor has there been any such event
                  within the past three (3) years; and

            (ii)  all amounts due and owing or accrued due but not yet owing for
                  all salary, wages, bonuses, commissions, vacation with pay,
                  pension benefits or other employee benefits have been paid or
                  if accrued are reflected in the Books and Records.

            Schedule 3.2(u) contains a correct and complete list of each
            employee of Corporation whether actively at work or not, their
            salaries, wage rates, commissions and bonus arrangements, benefits,
            positions, ages, status as full-time or part-time employees and
            length of service. No employee of Corporation has any agreement as
            to length of notice or severance payment required to terminate his
            or her employment, other than such as results by Law from the
            employment of an employee without an agreement as to notice or
            severance.

            Schedule 3.2(u) also contains a correct and complete list of each
            consultant of Corporation (together with their consulting fees) that
            is actively at work or which has received more than $20,000 in
            compensation from the Corporation in the last 12 months.

      (v)   EMPLOYEE PLANS.

            (i)   Schedule 3.2(v) lists and describes all Employee Plans.
                  Corporation has furnished to the Purchaser true, correct and
                  complete copies of all the Employee Plans as amended as of the

                  externally or internally prepared) and all material
                  correspondence with all regulatory authorities or other
                  relevant persons. No changes have occurred or

<PAGE>   19
                                      -15-


                   are expected to occur which would materially affect the
                   information contained in the actuarial reports, financial
                   statements or asset statements required to be provided to
                   the Purchaser pursuant to this provision.

            (ii)   All of the Employee Plans are and have been established,
                   registered, qualified, invested and administered, in all
                   respects, in accordance with their terms and all Laws,
                   including all Tax Laws where same is required for
                   preferential tax treatment. To the knowledge of Vendors, no
                   fact or circumstance exists that could adversely affect the
                   preferential tax treatment ordinarily accorded to any such
                   Employee Plan.

            (iii)  All obligations regarding the Employee Plans have been
                   satisfied, there are no outstanding defaults or violations
                   by any party to any Employee Plan and no Taxes, penalties,
                   or fees are owing or exigible under or in respect of any of
                   the Employee Plans.

            (iv)   No Employee Plan is subject to any pending investigation,
                   examination or other proceeding, action or claim initiated
                   by any regulatory authority, or by any other party (other
                   than routine claims for benefits).

            (v)    All contributions or premiums required to be paid by
                   Corporation under the terms of each Employee Plan or by
                   Laws have been made in a timely fashion in accordance with
                   Laws and the terms of the Employee Plans. Corporation has
                   no liability (other than liabilities accruing after the
                   Closing Date) with respect to any of the Employee Plans.
                   Contributions or premiums for the period up to the Closing
                   Date have been paid by Corporation even though not
                   otherwise required to be paid until a later date.

            (vi)   No commitments to improve or otherwise amend any Employee
                   Plan have been made except as required by applicable Laws.

            (vii)  Each Employee Plan which is a funded plan is fully funded
                   as of the Closing Date on both a going concern and a
                   solvency basis pursuant to the actuarial assumptions and
                   methodology utilized in the most recent actuarial valuation
                   therefor.

            (viii) None of the Employee Plans enjoy any special tax status
                   under any Laws, nor have any advance Tax rulings been
                   sought or received in respect of any Employee Plan.

            (ix)   No insurance policy or any other agreement affecting any
                   Employee Plan requires or permits a retroactive increase in
                   contributions, premiums or other payments due thereunder.
                   The level of insurance reserves under each insured Employee
                   Plan is reasonable and sufficient to provide for all
                   incurred but unreported claims.

            (x)    None of the Employee Plans (other than pension plans)
                   provide benefits to retired employees or to the
                   beneficiaries or dependants of retired employees.

                                      -16-


            (xi)  No Employee Plan exists that could result in (i) the payment
                  to any person of any money, benefits or other property, (ii)
                  accelerated or increased funding requirements for any Employee
                  Plan or (iii) the acceleration or provision of any other
                  increased rights or benefits to any person as a result of the
                  transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

      (w)   INSURANCE. Schedule 3.2(w) contains a list of insurance policies
            which are maintained by Corporation setting out, in respect of each
            policy, a description of the type of policy, the name of insurer,
            the coverage allowance, the expiration date, the annual premium and
            any pending claims.

      (x)   LITIGATION.  Except as described in Schedule 3.2(x), there are no
            (i) actions, suits or proceedings, at law or in equity, by any
            Person,(ii) arbitration or alternative dispute resolution process,
            or (iii) any administrative or other proceeding by or before (or to
            the knowledge of Vendors any investigation by) any Governmental
            Entity, pending, or, to the knowledge of Vendors, threatened against
            or affecting Corporation, the business or assets of Corporation.
            Corporation is not subject to any judgment, order or decree entered
            in any lawsuit or proceeding nor has Corporation settled any claim
            prior to being prosecuted in respect of it. Corporation is not the
            plaintiff or complainant in any action, suit or proceeding.

            shall have executed and delivered a certificate to that effect.
            The receipt of such certificate and the Closing shall not

            and delivered a certificate to that effect.  The receipt of such

            contained in this Agreement.

      (c)   DELIVERIES. Purchaser and Immersion shall deliver or cause to be

under Sections 10.3, 10.4 and 10.7 which shall survive. Purchaser and Immersion
shall only be released from its obligations if the condition or conditions for
the non-performance of which Vendors have terminated this Agreement are not
reasonably capable of being performed or caused to be performed by Purchaser or
Immersion. If Vendors waive compliance with any of the conditions, obligations
or covenants contained in this

termination in the event of non-fulfilment, non-observance or non-performance of
any other condition, obligation or covenant in whole or in part. The Vendors'
right of termination under this Article 6 is in addition to any other rights

      Visuaide in Section 3.2 are individual representations, warranties and
      covenants of each such Vendor (collectively, the "INDIVIDUAL
      REPRESENTATIONS AND COVENANTS"). This means that the particular Vendor
      making the Individual Representations and Covenants will be solely liable
      for such Individual Representations and Covenants as they pertain to
      himself or itself, but not to the other Vendors. The remainder of the
      representations, warranties (collectively the "COLLECTIVE

      Collective Representations exceeds $50,000 after which Vendors' liability
      for indemnification shall commence from the first dollar of such Damages.

                                      -30-



8.7   OBLIGATION TO REIMBURSE

      The amount of any Damages suffered or incurred by a party being
indemnified hereunder (the "INDEMNIFIED PARTY") shall accrue interest at a rate
per annum equal to the Prime Rate, plus two percent from the date it is
determined that the Indemnified Party incurs any such Damages until payment in
full by the Party providing for indemnification hereunder (the "INDEMNIFYING
PARTY").

8.8   NOTIFICATION.

      Promptly upon obtaining knowledge thereof, the Indemnified Party shall
notify the Indemnifying Party of any cause which the Indemnified Party has
determined has given or could give rise to indemnification under this Article 8.
The omission so to notify the Indemnifying Party shall not relieve the
Indemnifying Party from any duty to indemnify and hold harmless which otherwise
might exist with respect to such cause unless (and only to that extent) the
omission to notify materially prejudices the ability of the Indemnifying Party
to exercise its right to defend provided in this Article 8.

8.9   DEFENSE OF THIRD PARTY CLAIM.

(1)   If any legal proceeding shall be instituted or any claim or demand shall
      be asserted by a third party against the Indemnified Party (each a "THIRD
      PARTY CLAIM"), then the Indemnifying Party shall have the right, after
      receipt of the Indemnified Party's notice under Section 8.8 and upon
      giving notice to the Indemnified Party within five calendar days of such
      receipt, to defend the Third Party Claim at its own cost and expense with
      counsel of its own selection, provided that:

      (a)   the Indemnified Party shall at all times have the right to fully
            participate in the defense at its own expense;

      (b)   the Third Party Claim seeks only monetary damages and does not seek
            any injunctive or other relief against the Indemnified Party;

      (c)   the Indemnifying Party unconditionally acknowledges in writing its
            obligation to indemnify and hold the Indemnified Party harmless with
            respect to the Third Party Claim;

      (d)   legal counsel chosen by the Indemnifying Party is satisfactory to
            the Indemnified Party, acting reasonably; and

      (e)   if the amount of the Third Party Claim is greater than $500,000
            inclusive of reasonably estimated interest and costs, then the
            Indemnifying Party shall deliver a letter of credit, surety bond
            or similar security in form and substance satisfactory to the
            Indemnified Party, acting reasonably, in the amount by which such
            Third Party Claim exceeds $500,000  as security for the payment
            of amounts payable by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified
            Party pursuant hereto.

      Amounts payable by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to a Third Party Claim
      shall be paid in accordance with the terms of the settlement or, the
      judgment, as applicable, but in any event prior to the expiry of any delay
      for a judgment to become executory.


<PAGE>   35
                                      -31-



(2)   The Indemnifying Party shall not be permitted to compromise and settle or
      to cause a compromise and settlement of any Third Party Claim, without the
      prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, unless:

      (a)   the terms of the compromise and settlement require only the payment
            of money and do not require the Indemnified Party to admit any
            wrongdoing or take or refrain from taking any action; and

      (b)   the Indemnified Party receives, as part of the compromise and
            settlement, a legally binding and enforceable unconditional
            satisfaction or release, which his in form and substance
            satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, acting reasonably, from any
            and all obligations or liabilities it may have with respect to the
            Third Party Claim.

(3)   If the Indemnifying Party fails:

      (a)   within ten calendar days from receipt of the notice of a Third Party
            Claim to give notice of its intention to defend the Third Party
            Claim in accordance with Section 8.9(1), or

      (b)   to comply at any time with any of SubSections 8.9(1)(c) or
            8.9(1)(e),

      then the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have waived its right to
      defend the Third Party Claim and the Indemnified Party shall have the
      right (but not the obligation) to undertake or to cause Corporation to
      undertake the defense of the Third Party Claim and compromise and settle
      the Third Party Claim on behalf, for the account and at the risk and
      expense of the Indemnifying Party.

(4)   Where the defence of a Third Party Claim is being undertaken and
      controlled by the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnified Party will use its
      reasonable efforts to make available to the Indemnifying Party those
      employees whose assistance, testimony or presence is necessary to assist
      the Indemnifying Party in evaluating and defending any such claims.
      However, the Indemnifying Party shall be responsible for the expense
      associated with any employees made available by the Indemnified Party to
      the Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Section 8.9(4), which expense
      shall be equal to an amount to be mutually agreed upon per person per hour
      or per day for each day or portion thereof that the employees are
      assisting the Indemnifying Party and which expenses shall not exceed the
      actual cost to the Indemnified Party associated with the employees.

(5)   With respect to any Third Party Claim at the request of the Indemnifying

                             POST-CLOSING COVENANTS

9.1   CONFIDENTIALITY.

      After the Closing, Vendors will keep confidential and will not use or
disclose any information in their possession or under their control relating to
Corporation or their respective business, unless such information is or becomes
generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by
Vendors in violation of this Agreement.

9.2   COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS.

      For at least twelve (12) months following Closing, the employees of
Corporation shall be entitled to receive compensation and benefits no less
favourable than their current compensation and benefits which are set forth in

approved salary increases for certain of Corporation's employees on January 11,
2000. These increases in salary are described in Section 5 of the minutes of the
Remuneration Committee dated November 8, 1999. Immersion agrees to accept these
new salary levels, but only on the condition that such salary increases shall
commence as of the Closing and that such salary increases shall not be deemed to
have been effective during any period prior to the Closing. Following the
Closing, employees shall be eligible to participate in Immersion's Stock
Purchase Plan. Immersion acknowledges and agrees that salary increases for
Ramstein and Mather have already become effective and are being paid.

Purchased Shares to Purchaser and carry out the intent of this Agreement.

                    IMMERSION HUMAN INTERFACE CORPORATION
                        COMMON STOCK PURCHASE WARRANT

      THIS CERTIFIES THAT, for value received, Intel Corporation, a Delaware
corporation (the "Holder") is entitled to purchase one hundred thirteen thousand
(113,000) shares of Common Stock ("Shares") of Immersion Human Interface
Corporation, a California corporation, at a price of $0.15 per share ("Warrant
Price"), subject to adjustments as provided for in Section 5 and all other terms
and conditions set forth in this Warrant.

      1.    Definitions.  As used herein, the following terms, unless the
context otherwise requires, shall have the
 following meanings:

            (a) "Act" shall mean the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any
successor federal statute, and the rules and regulations of the Commission
thereunder, all as the same shall be in effect at the time.

            (b) "Commission" shall mean the Securities and Exchange Commission,
or any other Federal agency at the time administering the Act.

            (c) "Company" shall mean IMMERSION HUMAN INTERFACE CORPORATION, a

obligations of IMMERSION HUMAN INTERFACE CORPORATION, under this Warrant.

            (d) "Common Stock" shall mean shares of the Company's Common Stock.

            (e) "Date of Grant" shall mean June 6, 1997.

            (f) "Holder" shall mean any person who shall at the time be the
registered holder of this Warrant.



                                       1

                                                              INTEL CONFIDENTIAL

<PAGE>   2


            (g) "Purchase Agreement" shall mean that certain Series C Preferred
Stock and Common Stock Warrant Purchase Agreement dated June 6, 1997.

      2.    Issuance of Warrant and Consideration Therefor.  This Warrant is
issued in consideration of the Holder's willingness to enter into commercial
relationships with the Company.

      3.    Term.  Subject to Section 5 below, the purchase right represented
by this Warrant is exercisable only during the period commencing upon the
Date of Grant and ending on June 6, 2002 (the "Exercise Period").

      4.    Method of Exercise and Payment.

            (a) Method of Exercise. During the Exercise Period and subject to
compliance with all applicable Federal and state securities laws, the purchase
right represented by this Warrant may be exercised, in whole or in part and from
time to time, by the Holder by (i) surrender of this Warrant and delivery of the
Notice of Exercise or Conversion (the form of which is attached hereto as
Exhibit A), duly executed, at the principal office of the Company and (ii)
payment to the Company of the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being
purchased pursuant to one of the payment methods permitted under Section 4(c)
below.

            (b) Conversion. In lieu of exercising this Warrant or any portion
hereof, Holder shall have the right to convert this Warrant or any portion
hereof during the Exercise Period into shares of Common Stock by executing and
delivering to the Company, at its principal office, the written Notice of
Exercise or Conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, specifying the
portion of the Warrant to be converted, and accompanied by this Warrant. The
number of Shares to be issued upon such conversion shall be that number of
shares equal to the quotient by dividing (x) the value of the converted portion
of the Warrant at the time the conversion right is exercised (determined by
subtracting the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares represented by the
portion of the Warrant to be converted from the aggregate fair market value) by
(y) fair market value of one Share. Any portion of this Warrant that is
converted shall be immediately canceled. The fair market value shall be
determined pursuant to Section 4(d).

            (c) Method of Payment. Payment shall be made either (1) by check
drawn on a United States bank and for United States funds made payable to the
Company, (2) by wire transfer of United States funds for the account of the

4(d), or (5) by payment of stock held in a public company with a value equal to
the average of the closing price of such stock for each of the fifteen (15)
consecutive trading days ending three (3) business days prior to the Exercise
Date.

<PAGE>   3

            (d) Fair Market Value. If the Shares are traded in a public market,
the fair market value of the Shares shall be the closing price of the Shares
reported for the business day immediately before Holder delivers its Notice of
Exercise/Conversion to the Company. If the Shares are not traded in a public
market, the Board of Directors of the Company shall determine fair market value
in its reasonable good faith judgment.

            (e) Investment Letter. Upon exercise or conversion of the Warrant
hereof, Holder shall either (i) execute and deliver to the Company an investment
letter in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B, or (ii) deliver to the Company
an opinion of counsel for Holder reasonably satisfactory to the Company, stating
that such exercise or conversion is exempt from the registration and prospectus
delivery requirements of the Act.

            (f) Delivery of Certificate. In the event of any exercise of the
purchase right represented by this Warrant, certificates for the Shares so
purchased shall be delivered to the Holder within fifteen (15) days of delivery
of the Notice of Exercise and, unless this Warrant has been fully exercised or
has expired, a new warrant representing the portion of the Shares with respect
to which this Warrant shall not then have been exercised shall also be issued to
the Holder within such fifteen (15) day period.

            (g) No Fractional Shares. No fractional shares shall be issued in
connection with any exercise hereunder, but in lieu of such fractional shares
the Company shall make a cash payment therefor upon the basis of the fair market
value per Common Stock as of the date of exercise.

      5.    Sale, Merger, or Consolidation of the Company.

            (a) "Acquisition". For the purpose of this Warrant, "Acquisition"
means any sale, license, or other disposition of all or substantially all of the
assets (including intellectual property) of the Company, or any reorganization,
consolidation, or merger of the Company where the holders of the Company's
securities before the transaction beneficially own less than 50% of the
outstanding voting securities of the surviving entity after the transaction.

            (b) Assumption of Warrant. If, upon the closing of any Acquisition
the successor entity assumes the obligations of this Warrant, then this Warrant
shall be exercisable for the same securities, cash, and property as would be
payable for the Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant as if such Shares
were outstanding on the record date for the Acquisition and subsequent closing.
The Warrant Price shall be adjusted accordingly.

            (c) Non-Assumption. If upon the closing of any Acquisition the
successor entity does not assume the obligations of this Warrant and Holder has
not otherwise exercised or converted this Warrant, then this Warrant shall be
deemed to have been automatically converted

<PAGE>   4


pursuant to Section 4(b) and thereafter Holder shall participate in the
Acquisition on the same terms as other holders of the same class of securities
of the Company.

      6.    Adjustment of Warrant Price and Number of Shares. The number of
securities issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant and the Warrant Price
shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain
events, as follows:

            (a) Stock Splits, Stock Dividends and Combinations. In case the
Company shall at any time subdivide the outstanding shares of Common Stock, or
shall issue a stock dividend on its outstanding Common Stock, the Warrant Price
in effect immediately prior to such subdivision or the issuance of such stock
dividend shall be proportionately decreased, and the number of Shares shall be
proportionately increased, and in case the Company shall at any time combine the
outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Warrant Price in effect immediately
prior to such combination shall be proportionately increased, and the number of
Shares shall be proportionately decreased, effective at the close of business on
the date of such subdivision, stock dividend or combination, as the case may be.

            (b) Reclassification, Exchange or Substitution. Upon any
reclassification, exchange, substitution, or other event that results in a
change of the number and/or class of the securities issuable upon exercise of
this Warrant, Holder shall be entitled to receive, upon exercise of this
Warrant, the number and kind of securities and property that Holder would have
received for the Shares if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before
such reclassification, exchange, substitution, or other event. The provisions of
this Section 6(b) shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications,
exchanges, substitutions, or other events.

            (c)   Adjustments for Combinations, Etc.  If the outstanding
Shares are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a
lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased.

      7.    Rights of Shareholders. No Holder shall be entitled to vote or
receive dividends or be deemed the holder of Common Stock or any other
securities of the Company which may at any time be issuable on the exercise of
this Warrant for any purpose, nor shall anything contained herein be construed
to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a shareholder of the
Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter
submitted to shareholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent
to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issuance of stock,
reclassification of stock, consolidation, merger, transfer of assets or
otherwise) or to receive notice of meetings, or to receive dividends or
subscription rights or otherwise until this Warrant shall have been exercised
and the Common Stock issuable upon exercise hereof shall have become
deliverable, as provided herein.

      8. Replacement of Warrants. On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory
to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant
and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity
agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company or, in the
case of mutilation, on surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company
at its expense shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant
of like tenor.

      9. Exchange of Warrant. Subject to the other provisions of this Warrant,
on surrender of this Warrant for exchange, properly endorsed and subject to the
provisions of this Warrant with respect to compliance with the Act, the Company
at its expense shall issue to or on the order of the Holder a new warrant or
warrants of like tenor, in the name of the Holder or as the Holder (on payment
by the Holder of any applicable transfer taxes) may direct, for the number of
Common Stock issuable upon exercise thereof.

      10. Transferability. Subject to such restrictions on transfer as may be
contained in this Warrant or in the Purchase Agreement of even date herewith,
this Warrant is transferable on the books of the Company at its principal office
by the above named holder of record in person or by duly authorized attorney,
upon surrender of this Warrant properly endorsed. The Company may treat the
holder of record of this Warrant as the absolute owner hereof for all purposes
and shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary.

      11. Reservation of Shares. The Corporation at all times shall reserve and
keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock solely
for the purpose of effecting the exercise of this Warrant such number of shares
of Common Stock as from time to time shall be sufficient to effect the exercise
of this Warrant.

      12. Expiration. Subject to Section 5 above, the right to exercise or
convert this Warrant shall expire at 5:00 P.M. California time, on June 6 2002.

      Purchaser is acquiring the Stock for its own account, to hold for
investment, and Purchaser shall not make any sale, transfer or other disposition
of the Stock in violation of the 1933 Act or the General Rules and Regulations
promulgated thereunder by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or
in violation of any applicable state securities law.

      Purchaser has been advised that the Stock has not been registered under
the 1933 Act or state securities laws on the ground that this transaction is
exempt from registration, and that reliance by Intel on such exemptions is
predicated in part on Purchaser's representations set forth in this letter.

Purchaser has been informed that under the 1933 Act, the Stock must be held
indefinitely unless it is subsequently registered under the 1933 Act or unless
an exemption from such 



                                                              INTEL CONFIDENTIAL

registration (such as Rule 144) is available with respect to any proposed
transfer or disposition by Purchaser of the Stock. Purchaser further agrees that
Intel may refuse to permit Purchaser to sell, transfer or dispose of the Common
Stock (except as permitted under Rule 144) unless there is in effect a
registration statement under the 1933 Act and any applicable state securities
laws covering such transfer, or unless Purchaser furnishes an opinion of counsel
reasonably satisfactory to counsel for the Company, to the effect that such
registration is not required.

      Purchaser also understands and agrees that there will be placed on the
certificate(s) for the Stock, or any substitutions therefor, a legend stating in
substance:

      "THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED
UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED,
ASSIGNED OR HYPOTHECATED UNLESS THERE IS AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT
UNDER SUCH ACT COVERING SUCH SECURITIES, THE SALE IS MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH
RULE 144 UNDER THE ACT, OR THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL FOR THE
HOLDER OF THESE SECURITIES REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, STATING THAT
SUCH SALE, TRANSFER, ASSIGNMENT OR HYPOTHECATION IS EXEMPT FROM THE REGISTRATION
AND PROSPECTUS DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS OF SUCH ACT."

      Purchaser has carefully read this letter and has discussed its
requirements and other applicable limitations upon Purchaser's resale of the
Stock with Purchaser's counsel.

                                    Very truly yours,

     RE:  MARKETING DEVELOPMENT FUND LETTER AGREEMENT

Dear Wolfgang,

     On behalf of Immersion, I am pleased to offer Logitech, Inc., support for a
Marketing Development Fund ("MDF") which will be used to support Logitech's
launch and promotion of the Wingman Force Feedback Mouse and subsequent force
feedback mouse products. In order to enable Logitech to evangelize this
important new class of peripheral devices and because Logitech is Immersion's
first-to-market strategic partner with respect to force feedback cursor control
devices, Immersion agrees to reimburse Logitech up to a total of one million
U.S. dollars, US$1,000,000, for the MDF subject to the terms set forth below.

     QUARTERLY REIMBURSEMENTS: For a period of five calendar quarters, beginning
the first calendar quarter of 2000 and terminating at the end of the first
calendar quarter of 2001 (the "MDF Period"), Immersion agrees to reimburse
Logitech up to US$200,000 per quarter for certain promotional activities
undertaken by Logitech to launch and promote Logitech's Wingman Force
 Feedback
Mouse and other force feedback mouse products (Immersion's reimbursement is
intended for, but is not required to be used by, Logitech's Control Device
Business Unit). All but the first US$200,000 to be reimbursed to Logitech by
Immersion pursuant to the MDF is contingent on Immersion's successful completion
of an underwritten public offering before January 1, 2000.

     REIMBURSEMENT PROCEDURE: Within thirty days of the end of the applicable
calendar quarter during the MDF Period, Logitech will submit a reimbursement
request to Immersion. Such reimbursement request will include a reasonably
detailed summary of each promotional activity for which Logitech is requesting
reimbursement, and receipts for third party expenses incurred by Logitech.
Subject to the conditions described below, Immersion shall reimburse Logitech
for an amount equal to but not exceeding US$200,000 within forty-five days of
the end of the applicable quarter within the MDF Period.

     Immersion's quarterly reimbursement obligations will be subject to the
following conditions:

     Future Version of Force Feedback Mouse. In order to remain eligible for
     quarterly MDF reimbursements, Logitech must agree in good faith to commit
     to a product roadmap for a new version of the force feedback mouse
     positioned for use as a [**] and [**] product. The new version of the force
     feedback mouse will be launched under a new name other than Wingman (i.e.
     MouseMan) and will contain a [**]. In addition, in order to remain eligible
     for quarterly MDF reimbursements, Logitech must meet the following
     milestones:

          (A)  on or before [**], Logitech must publicly announce the new
               version (new SKU) of the force feedback mouse product; and

          (B)  on or before [**], Logitech's new version (new SKU) of the force
               feedback mouse product must be available in commercial quantities
               through internet distribution and through retail distribution.

     Immersion and Logitech may agree to modify the milestone schedule described
     above by means of a written amendment signed by both parties setting forth
     a new milestone schedule.

     Promotional Campaigns. Only third party expenses that are incurred by
     Logitech specifically to fund promotional campaigns that are reasonably
     calculated to promote Logitech's force feedback mice products shall be
     eligible for reimbursement from Immersion under the MDF. In addition, MDF
     funds may only be used to reimburse moneys spent by Logitech on projects
     mutually agreed upon as confirmed in writing by email in advance. Immersion
     and Logitech agree to work together in good faith in order to approve
     reimbursable projects expeditiously.

     Use of MDF Funds. Logitech's expenditure of funds will only be reimbursed
     by Immersion if Logitech has used such funds to pay third parties who have
     provided services or products specifically targeted at promoting Logitech's
     force feedback mouse products properly marked with Immersion's FEELit logo
     (or successor replacement logo). Immersion can not and will not reimburse
     Logitech for funds used to pay Logitech employees or for Logitech's
     internal projects.

     Force Feedback Product Commitment. To be eligible for each quarterly
     reimbursement, Logitech must remain reasonably committed to the success of
     its new version of the force feedback mouse product positioned for the [**]
     and [**] market and to allocate reasonably sufficient marketing,
     manufacturing, and engineering resources to these force feedback products.
     For clarification, Logitech will maintain the Wingman version of the
     product until the new version (non-Wingman) is available, at which point
     Logitech may chose to market only a single SKU. Of course Logitech is free
     to pursue multiple SKUs if it so desires.

           TO INDICATE THAT A PORTION OF THE EXHIBIT HAS BEEN OMITTED

     Marketing Collateral. To be eligible for each quarterly reimbursement,
     Logitech must include the Immersion brand logo and slogan on those
     marketing materials that reference or depict force feedback functionality
     or force feedback products. This includes but is not limited to product
     datasheets, advertisements, web pages, and trade show promotions.

If Logitech is in material noncompliance with the conditions set forth above in
whole or in part, then Immersion will notify Logitech in writing and will not be
responsible for subsequent reimbursements to the extent of such noncompliance.

     This letter agreement is the entire agreement between Logitech and
Immersion related to the MDF, and supersedes all prior statements, proposals or
agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to the subject matter herein
and may be modified only by a writing executed by an authorized representative
of Immersion. This letter agreement is governed by the laws of the State of
California without application of its conflicts of law principles.

     We look forward to working with you on these marketing efforts. We are
happy to make this contribution to your force feedback mouse efforts, and are
confident that by working together we can achieve the goal of bringing feel to
every desktop.

                                       Sincerely,

                                       /s/ LOUIS ROSENBERG
                                       ---------------------------

                                       President & CEO

Please sign below to indicate Logitech's understanding and agreement with the
terms described above and return a copy of this letter agreement to me at
Immersion.

Acknowledged and Agreed
