VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (SEPTEMBER 20, 2017) – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MRS) is pleased to report that, in an entirely unrelated transaction from the recently announced Foreign Military Distribution Agreement for the supply of minimum USD$400MM in Protect The Force (“PTF”) products over 5-years, PTF, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has received a USD$400,000 – approximately CAD$490,000 – purchase order (the “Award”) for a domestic government application. To be fulfilled and delivered within 45-days, the Award is for PTF’s High-Threat Harness Plate Carrier (the “Carrier”) and GS3A06 Concealed Soft Armor (the “Armor”).
Made in the United States of America, The High Threat Harness Plate Carrier features full padded shoulders with a unique spacer mesh designed to relieve the load. The front and back torso utilizes a stand-off breathable fabric designed to increase body cooling while the cummerbund features a rear bungee strap closure for increased range of motion. The NIJ 0101.06 certified GS3A06 is a high-performance compilation of ballistics aimed at protecting the forces at the maximum potential without sacrificing mobility.
Jeff Schwartz, President & CEO of Mission Ready stated, “We are very pleased with the exponential momentum that is building for the Company and believe that our recent successes are only the tip of the iceberg with respect to the potential for our innovations and manufacturing divisions. Each of these wins, big or small, further validates the quality of our growing portfolio of top-tier, tech-centric products that we have started to vigorously market to governments and industries on home soil and internationally.”
Foreign Military Distribution Agreement
Further to the September 6, 2017 news release announcing the Foreign Military Distribution Agreement, the Company expects to receive the initial purchase order(s) for the Flex9Armor and No-Contact Tactical Shield Covers during Q4 2017, and is progressing with the required logistics and preparations to scale its manufacturing capacity over a planned 90-day ramp-up period.
Balance Sheet Improvements
The Company recently announced a number of significant measures taken to improve its balance sheet and reduce outstanding liabilities, which included the removal of CAD$5.4MM in debt related to the Wild Things transaction, and the cancellation of over CAD$170,000 in directors’ fees. Further to these capital improvements, Mission Ready is pleased to announce that the recent strengthening of the Company’s share price has resulted in a significant number of outstanding warrant exercises, with approximately CAD$1.2M exercised and received to date.
