IOT announces double dose of good news
The negotiation of a major distribution agreement for its AirSelfie and ROVA products will result in an immediate start to distribution in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands for IOT Group (ASX:IOT).
Management also expects that this agreement will facilitate sales into other countries over the next three months.
The agreement was struck with White Castle Partners (WCP), represented by Klaas de Vos who has more than 25 years of experience in consumer products across sales, marketing and management.
Importantly, WCP has existing business relationships with IOT’s North American partners “Spring/Cities and its South American/Latin American partners, Maximum Export Import. Synergies derived from these relationships, along with the exchange of knowledge and information of markets should assist IOT in substantially increasing sales.
Looking at the WCP agreement in isolation, it will provide IOT with representation across most major markets in mainland Europe, as well as the Nordic countries and Russia, Turkey and the Middle East.
IOT’s Executive Director, Sean Neylon highlighted the fact that this agreement along with other distribution arrangements should not only lead to increased sales revenues across a broad global footprint, but it should also result in improved profit margins.
This is speculative at this stage, so investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for their portfolio.
