Vapor Group, Inc., VPOR, Closes Major Distribution Agreement and Receives Initial Purchase Order Covering 100 Retail Stores; Also Acquires Interactive Advertising Agency, VGR Media, Inc.

DAVIE, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - Vapor Group, Inc. (OTCQB: VPOR), (the "Company"), confirmed today that it had consummated a major distribution agreement for its full range of e-cigarette products with a major northeast U.S. distributor serving over 3000 retail outlets, and had received an initial stocking order for 100 of its retail store customers.

In an unrelated event, the Company also announced that it completed on December 31, 2014 the acquisition of 100% of VGR Media, Inc., a Florida-based interactive advertising agency with an international footprint. As a result, VGR Media, Inc. immediately becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

Dror Svorai, President and CEO, said, "We have started 2015 off with two highly significant steps forward. First, the new distribution agreement firmly puts our products on the map in several northeast States, and has, on the first business day of the new year already put our shipping department in high gear as they begin shipping product to the first 100 stores. 

Second, last Wednesday, we acquired VGR Media, Inc. which has a staff with a core competency in interactive advertising and marketing. This acquisition will enable us to not only further our online marketing results, but to derive income and profit from the online sales and marketing of non-competitive consumer goods and services. Moreover, this acquisition will help us gain valuable insight into online consumer sales behavior and trends that can only help us in the future.

Lastly, the Company has already reduced significantly the majority of its long-term debt and we believe that we on pace to almost eliminate all of our long-term debt by the beginning of the second quarter 2015. The effect of this pay down will be a stronger balance sheet, and long-term, improved profitability."
