AlarmForce Receives Statement of Claim

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 27, 2016) - AlarmForce Industries Inc. (AlarmForce or the Company) (TSX:AF) acknowledges receipt of a Statement of Claim (the Claim) made by Robert Hepburn and 1154300 Ontario Inc. (collectively, Hepburn), a former franchisee who operated an AlarmForce business in southwestern Ontario from 1995 until December 2015. Hepburn seeks total damages of $18 million for, among other claims, breach of contractual and statutory obligations. The Claim fails to describe the basis for, or the particulars of, the amounts sought.

AlarmForce is reviewing the Claim with its counsel and believes that it is without merit. AlarmForce intends to defend the claim vigorously.

As the matter of the Claim is now before the courts, the Company will have no further statement to make; unless and until a decision is reached by the court, or a settlement is reached prior to court proceedings.
