Guardian 8 Sells an Initial Order of Pro V2 Units to the United Arab Emirates

Units Being Evaluated for Larger Deployment

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2015) - Guardian 8 Corporation, the wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), a leading provider of Enhanced Non-Lethal (ENL) defense technologies, today announced that in May it sold and shipped an initial order of twenty Pro V2 units to a large metropolitan police department in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.).

The department will deploy these initial units to select officers as part of a comprehensive pilot program to determine if the de-escalation, documentation, and defense capabilities of the Pro V2 should be used to outfit an even larger number of police personnel in the U.A.E. In addition, the Ministry of the Interior is evaluating the units for potential deployment to private security personnel in the region, pending import clearance.

Guardian 8 was assisted in this international sale by its regional partner, BWG Trinity. Guardian 8 will work with BWG Trinity to ensure the personnel who receive the Pro V2 units for the pilot program are adequately trained in its Enhanced Non-Lethal capabilities and operation.

Kyle Jordan, Vice President of Business Development at BWG Trinity, acknowledged, "The U.A.E. deal can help open the door for substantial growth in the region for Guardian 8. We're starting to get traction in the region, and we believe we'll see more with a successful pilot program."

Guardian 8 hopes to expand its international presence, especially in markets where private security forces and police lack intermediate tools that can help de-escalate and document potentially violent situations while also defending the user when needed.
