WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(TSX-V:SDZ) (OTCBB:SDEV)
In conjunction with the successful use of Security Devices International’s ("SDI" or the "Company") blunt impact projectile by multiple domestic and foreign SWAT teams at the 31st Annual International SWAT Round-Up (Press Released Nov 28, 2013), the Company announced today the sale of operational rounds to the hosting SWAT department, Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO). The OCSO is a highly respected, revered and influential department in the U.S. and will receive their delivery of rounds for operational use before the closing of 2013. The OCSO SWAT Team Leader Steve Berens noted “Our department has made a strategic switch from the 40MM Blue Nose to SDI’s BIP because of its diversity. SDI’s Blunt Impact Projectile allows us to operate from both short and long range, utilizing a single round as opposed to using multiple types of less lethal ammunition during operations”.
Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that it has retained Integral Capital Markets ("Integral") to provide market-making services in accordance with TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX.V") policies. Integral will trade shares of the Company on the TSX.V for the purposes of maintaining an orderly market and improving the liquidity of the Company's shares.
Integral will not receive shares or options as compensation. However, Integral and its clients may have or may acquire a direct interest in the securities of the Company. SDI and Integral are unrelated and unaffiliated entities; Integral is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada ("IROC") and can access all Canadian Stock Exchanges and Alternative Trading Systems. The capital and securities required for any trade undertaken by Integral as principal will be provided by Integral.
The Agreement is for an open-ended term of at least three months and may be terminated thereafter on 30 days notice.
