Management Commentary:

Richard Ransom, President, stated, "We are excited with our profitable first half of 2015 and continued investment in the future of ICTV Brands. During Q2, we had live home shopping events with DermaWand, Derma Brilliance, and Jidue, and are encouraged by additional airings and growth opportunities to come in 2015. Further, we had our first international third party distributor sale for our Super Solution brand and are hopeful we will continue to open up new markets for all of our brands as the year progresses. Additionally, we are continuing to invest in new creative, production and packaging for both our Jidue and CoralActives brands and expect to relaunch these products with new marketing campaigns in the second half of 2015.

"Our team is proud of the progress we've made with our portfolio of brands outside of DermaWand, which includes revenues of $660,000 for the first six months of the year. Further, we have made a conscious effort to reduce our overall operating costs. With our proven track record with DermaWand, we feel that our operating platform and team in place are positioned to promote sustained growth with multiple brands. While we recognize the short term challenges of launching additional brands and opening new sales channels, we are confident that we are on the right path to bring a significant reward to our long term shareholders."
