Toronto, Ontario - February 27, 2013 - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX-V: ISD) (OTCQX: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America and GraphicMedia, Inc. ("Graphic"), iSIGN's exclusive distributor for Smart Antennas for the American continents, are pleased to provide an up-date to the negotiations for the exclusive reseller agreement for the State of Nevada.
An agreement has been reached that will allow for a 30 day due diligence and trial period of the Smart Antenna in specifically selected locations. It has been agreed that this period may be extended by mutual consent for a period of up to 90 days in 30 day increments.
Once the due diligence and trial period has been completed and the agreement finalized and signed, additional details will be released.
"We look forward to successfully completing the due diligence period and moving ahead with this agreement," said Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "Having all parties here in Las Vegas at the Digital Signage Expo has given everyone a chance to meet and discuss both the agreement and the potential for our Smart Antennas in Nevada."
"We feel that Nevada will be an extremely good location for our Smart Antennas as it has a large tourist and global population who would benefit from receiving messages to their mobile devices," added Mr. Romanov. "We are also in the process of extending our network of Smart Antennas into the city of Orlando in Florida. Orlando is another great tourist destination and we feel that it makes great sense to have our antennas installed there."
"iSIGN's Smart Antenna system provides relevant content to smart phones and tablets that come in range of the antenna installations," stated Ron Leman, Graphic's Chief Executive Officer and President. "The Smart Antennas are complemented by iSIGN's back-end reporting system that delivers real-time metrics, enabling clients to judge performance in real-time, something that is not offered by anyone else."
"There has been a large amount of interest expressed by various parties in becoming resellers for the Smart Antenna and we are looking forward to seeing a rapid growth in the iSIGN reseller network," added Mr. Leman.
