GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwire - Jan 29, 2013) - iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT) ("the Company"), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, announced the fulfillment of a significant initial stocking order for its Energize™ (www.isatori.com/energize) product with Walgreens, a Fortune 500 mass merchandiser and the largest drug retailing chain in the United States.
Consumers can now find Energize on shelves at 8,030 Walgreens retail stores throughout North America. The Company is working closely with this retailer to "pull-through" the inventory in the first quarter of 2013, as management believes the relationship with Walgreens has the potential to materially impact the Company's financial performance throughout the year.
iSatori CEO Stephen Adele (www.isatori.com) noted, "The fulfillment of this order with Walgreens marks the achievement of an important milestone in our new 'mass market' strategy, which targets the placement of our product portfolio into the food, drug, and mass merchandising sales channels. The initial deployment of our Energize product into this new channel will significantly expand the number of retail stores throughout North America where consumers may purchase our products. iSatori believes the potential for the 'mass market' channel to have a material positive impact on the Company's financial performance will be improved by additional new customer relationships as the year progresses."
"Energize, a product developed by iSatori in collaboration with a doctor, is a tablet that provides prolonged energy by using a proprietary, sustained-release delivery system," continued Adele. "So, there's no 'rush' at the start, and consumers do not suffer from 'jitters' or a 'crash' later. And because Energize is not a drink or shot, there's no bitter taste."
Since its introduction by iSatori in 2004, Energize has attracted a growing number of loyal consumers, along with retail distribution. In fact, Energize has become America's number one selling energy pill, as reported by IRI data (June 2012).
