HIGHLAND PARK, IL and BOSTON, MA and MILFORD, NH--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2014) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (
Distribution Agreement with UCES
The partnership with UCES will expand exposure and access to UVFT's air purification systems. UCES is a newly formed company that brings together the best minds from e-tailing, retailing, marketing and manufacturing who have worked with Johnson & Johnson, GE Medical, Philips Healthcare, Bose, major electronics and consumer retail entities, as well as extraordinarily successful entrepreneurial ventures. They are joining in a collaborative effort to identify quality products in the healthcare and electronics industries and provide the strategic direction, distribution, marketing and sales services that will position the products at the top of their industries. UCES works in close partnership with myVBO, which executes the complementary marketing, advertising and internet optimization strategies for select clients.
UV Flu Technologies produces the finest air purification systems in the world under the ViraTech and RxAir™ brands. The RxAir air purification system was recently featured on ABC World News Tonight's interviewed with Dr. Mark Sawyer of Rady's Children's Hospital in San Diego, where Dr. Sawyer noted they employ a "special filter (RxAir) which takes out any infectious agent" in their battle against the recent measles outbreak. The UV-400 incorporates unique filterless UV technology that kills greater than 99% of airborne bacteria on first pass and eliminates other infectious agents, improving the quality of life for people who suffer from autoimmune disorders, allergies and other health conditions.
"UCES is a dream team with incomparable expertise across multiple industries that is specifically geared toward generating online and retail presence and multi-channel sales distribution. We are excited to get our air purification products in front of consumers, healthcare facilities and businesses that need it most," said Michael Ross, President and CEO of UV Flu Technologies.
As part of the three-year agreement, UCES is subject to sales quotas of 36,000 units per year from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015 (subject to a four-month ramp up), and 50,000 units annually (October 1 through September 30) thereafter. UVFT will receive a flat fee plus cost for worldwide retail sales (including internet sales direct to customer) of ViraTech units. For all RxAir products distributed wholesale, UVFT will earn a percentage of the profits that will fluctuate dependent upon whether UVFT or UCES primarily sources the vendor. As further compensation to UCES, UVFT will pay UCES 3 million shares.
