Digital Ally Awarded Statewide Contract Extension With State of Michigan

State Police Authorized to Purchase In-Car Video, Body-Worn Cameras and Patented VuLink Automatic Activation Systems

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2015) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced an extension of its statewide contract with the State of Michigan. The Contract was extended for one year, or until December 7, 2016, and approved the purchase of many of the Company's products, including the DVM-800 In-Car Video System, FirstVU HD body-worn camera and VuLink hands-free automatic activation system by the Michigan State Police.

The Company has supplied the Michigan State Police with its DVM-800 and DVM-500Plus In-Car Video Systems for the past five years, and the one-year extension will increase the cumulative contract value since its inception to approximately $7.3 million. In addition, the statewide contract allows state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies within Michigan to purchase Digital Ally in-car video systems, body-worn cameras and VuLink automatic activation systems at the same prices and under the same terms as were negotiated with the state police. Michigan is one of the highest-ranking states in terms of total revenues generated for the Company, primarily as a result of these contracts with the Michigan State Police.

"On August 13, 2015, we received a purchase order valued at approximately $350,000 under this Contract from the Michigan State Police," commented Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "The order included DVM-800 in-car video systems and a FirstVU HD docking station. The Company expects to ship this order in the current quarter."

"We have an excellent and long-standing relationship with the State of Michigan and are very pleased with the one-year extension of the statewide in-car video system contract and the expansion of the contract to include our FirstVU HD body-worn cameras and VuLink automatic activation systems for the first time," added Ross. "While we may benefit from certain orders under these contracts during the third and fourth quarters of 2015, the extension provides us with a contract vehicle to pursue sales opportunities for our full suite of products with law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Michigan over the next year."
