NightFood Securing International Trademark Protection in Response to International Distributor Inquiries

TARRYTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - May 25, 2017) - NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), a fully reporting "better-for-you" snack company, announced today that the Company is retaining Pinnacle IP Strategies, LLC to ensure Company trademarks are protected internationally.

"Over the last several weeks, we've been approached by multiple international distributors, seeking the rights to bring NightFood products overseas," explained NightFood CEO Sean Folkson. "To be clear, we're not proactively seeking international expansion at this time. However, we will continue be have open discussions regarding the opportunities and overtures that come our way. In the long view, ensuring the NightFood trademark is protected internationally is of key importance."

Pinnacle is led by Scott Scioli, an experienced intellectual property attorney who has practiced IP for over 15 years. In addition, Mr. Scioli spent 10 years performing graduate level research in food science and human nutrition, molecular biology, biochemistry, and plant science at Rutgers University.

"As a brand name, NightFood has some very powerful qualities. As a scientist, I think the space they're in is fascinating, and a tremendous opportunity," commented Scioli. "My firm will take the necessary steps to ensure the brand and the Company are protected both internationally, as well as right here in the United States."

Folkson continued, "We'll work with Pinnacle to identify our optimal IP strategy going forward. Initially the plan is to secure trademark protection in the countries where we've had recent discussions with distributors, as well as other countries that might be key targets for future expansion."
