HIT Technologies Announces the Launch of the HITCASE Shield

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 09, 2016) - HIT Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: HIT) ("HIT" or the "Company"), today announced the launch of the newest addition to their powerful product roster, and the world's thinnest waterproof case, the HITCASE SHIELD for iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus, is now shipping. An iPhone 7 version will ship later on this year.

The HITCASE Shield also signals the Company's extension into the mainstream everyday carry waterproof case market. Made out of aluminum, in beautiful metallic colors matching the iPhone, it offers superior protection and great style. Added to this an innovative new patent pending "ShockSeal" design that is much easier to use than competitor products, and replaceable seals to extend the life of the case. This presents a huge opportunity to go beyond the ruggedized segment and crossover into the fashion segment with a fresh brand already recognized as an innovator.

With distribution deals in place including Best Buy Canada and negotiations under way with several large new distributors and retailers globally the company is well positioned for growth. New opportunities for the imminent iPhone 7, and over 400 Million iPhone 5 and 6 based devices in the market we believe that fiscal 2017 will be a tremendous year for the company as it executes on these opportunities.

"We've been working on our vision for the company as a compelling brand with highly differentiated products and we've achieved accolades for our Pro and Snap products. We are very excited to grow both of those businesses on the back of a wider play with a class leading product like Shield in the global 30 billion dollar mobile accessories business," said Brooks Bergreen, CEO of HIT Technologies.
