GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - May 16, 2013) - iSatori, Inc. (
The initial stocking order for iSatori's Energize (www.isatori.com/energize) product from Walmart is expected to ship by the end of May and be on the retailer's shelves in June. Though specific terms of the order were not disclosed, this initial stocking order will enable iSatori to distribute its Energize product nationally through Walmart stores. iSatori will work closely with Walmart to help "pull" inventory off store shelves through the deployment of a national television and Internet media campaign highlighting the unique advantages of the Energize product.
"Partnering with Walmart, the largest Fortune 500 company and the world's preeminent retailer, will significantly expand consumer awareness of Energize and further demonstrates our ability to expand distribution into the food, drug, and mass merchandising markets, which account for nearly 70 percent of the $30 billion yearly sales of nutritional supplements," stated Stephen Adele, Founder and CEO of iSatori, Inc. (www.isatori.com). "We expect this new mass market relationship to have a positive impact on the Company's operating performance by growing the number of doors, units sold, and consumers who may be exposed to our products. In addition, we hope to realize positive financial performance from further channel expansion of our product distribution throughout the remainder of the year."
Energize, a product developed by iSatori in collaboration with a doctor, provides prolonged energy with a proprietary, sustained-release delivery system. Contrary to other energy drinks and products on the market, with Energize there is no "rush" at the start and no "jitters" or "crash" later in the day. And because it is a tablet, not a drink or a shot, there is no bitter taste. Energize also represents the best value among energy products on retailer shelves, costing almost half as much per serving as the leading brand of energy shots. Since its introduction by iSatori in 2004, Energize has amassed a growing number of loyal consumers, along with expanded distribution in the mass-market retail channel. In fact, Energize has become America's number one selling energy tablet, as reported by IRI data, June 2012.
