Guardian 8 Eliminates Substantial Debt and Increases Cash From Exercise of Warrants

Ninety-Six Percent of Convertible Debt Converts to Equity, Including Holdings of Four Board Members and CEO

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2012) - Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH) (PINKSHEETS: GRDH) announced today that $544,500 of debt has been eliminated in the conversion of convertible promissory notes to shares of common stock just months before the launch of its subsidiary's G8 Pro V2 defense device. Four board members and GRDH's CEO, holding $165,000 in convertible debt, were included among the transactions completed in late June. 

Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet commented, "I'm very pleased to see this level of confidence as we prepare to launch the G8 Pro V2 in the fourth quarter of this year. Guardian 8 continues to execute very well and being virtually debt-free at this time is a critical achievement for us."

Guardian 8 raised $61,750 in warrants associated with the debt conversions. Cochennet continued by saying, "Every member of the board who held convertible debt converted because they believe in the vision and see the benefits of holding an equity stake in the company."

Guardian 8, through its wholly owned operating subsidiary, Guardian 8 Corporation, is developing a personal defense product that emphasizes a 'layered defense' approach to protection. The company received its second nomination for "Security's Best" from ASIS and finalists are expected to be announced in September.
