D-BOX Technologies Adds Two New Locations with Jogchem's Theatres in the Netherlands

LONGUEUIL, QC, March 17 - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (TSXV: DBO.A), a leader in innovative motion technology, announced today a new agreement with Germany-based FTT (the company's first European distributor for its commercial theatre expansion) for two new theatres with Netherlands-based Jogchem's Theatres known in the market as JT Bioscopen.

JT Hoogezand and JT Arnhem will each equip its theatres with respectively 20 and 21 D-BOX MFX Seats. With the introduction of D-BOX at these newest locations, Jogchem's Theatres will have a total of four movie theatres that offer D-BOX's motion experience. In addition to the sale of these systems, this deal will also generate licensing fees payable to D-BOX in accordance with the systems' utilization.

"FTT has been instrumental in executing our growth strategy in Europe," said President and CEO of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "We anticipate continued global expansion given the positive response to our international distribution model and the commitment of progressive exhibitors like Jogchem's Theatres."

"As we continue to introduce D-BOX to European theatre exhibitors, the added value has become more and more evident," stated Chairman of the Board of Management of FTT group, Thomas Rüttgers. "The two new locations with Jogchem's come after the successful launch of D-BOX at its first two theatres in November 2010. It is our expectation that other European theatre brands will follow suit in the coming year."

Additionally, President of Jogchem's Theaters B.V. / JT Bioscopen, Mr. J.M. Punt added, "The deployment of D-BOX at our theatres is complementary to our overall goals of further developing the entertainment experience.
