Guardian 8 Signs New Distribution Partners in Russia and Mexico

International Markets Showing Interest in Enhanced Non-Lethal (ENL) Response for Security Industry Professionals

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced today that it signed a new international distribution agreement in Russia and added a second distributor in Mexico. The new agreement with Techkomplekt Inc. provides Guardian 8 with an exclusive distribution partner in Moscow, which will sell the G8 Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal (ENL) devices. Techkomplekt has committed to an initial order of $25,000, and delivery is expected to take place immediately following import approval in Russia. The distribution agreement with Mexico City-based Controles Graficos is a non-exclusive partnership with a minimum initial order of $10,000, and is also subject to the import clearance process in that country.

"We have already received interest from potential distributors in more than a dozen countries. Now that the Pro V2 is being manufactured and shipped, we will begin to execute and develop our international distribution model," said Steve Cochennet, CEO of Guardian 8. "These agreements from Russia and Mexico are significant to Guardian 8 because we believe it further validates the Pro V2 device, the concept of ENL, and begins to demonstrate our sales traction internationally. We are very excited about the future of the company and the continued interest from potential distributors around the world. We believe these newest orders validate the fact that an under-served market exists within the professional security industry globally."

Guardian 8 Holdings, through its wholly owned operating subsidiary Guardian 8 Corporation, has developed the Pro V2, which emphasizes a "layered defense" approach to personal protection. The Pro V2 unit is specialized for professional security and the company expects to release a consumer model in 2015. For more information about the Pro V2, visit or see a video demonstration of the product.
