Philadelphia, PA, Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE: VSBY) (Frankfurt: 5VS) (OTC: VSBGF) (the Company or “VSBLTY”), a leading software provider of security and retail analytics technology, today announced that it has entered into a license agreement (the “License Agreement”) with RADAR USA, Inc. (“RADAR USA”) to develop a security product offering and associated services for sale in the United States and Canada. RADAR USA was formed in 2021 as a collaboration between VSBLTY and RADAR APP in Mexico, where the security network deployment has reached 10,000 cameras.
Jay Hutton, VSBLTY founder & CEO, said, “The licensing agreement with RADAR USA is a major step toward bringing effective and affordable security technology into U.S. and Canadian neighborhoods and making them safer. The collaborative security technology will allow private citizens and public safety entities to gain an improved view of their environments and better allocate resources.”
Pursuant to the License Agreement, VSBLTY has granted an exclusive license to RADAR USA in respect to certain market segments in the US and Canada with a focus on Homeowners Associations, municipal governments and critical infrastructure. Under the License Agreement, VSBLTY will receive a pre-paid, non-refundable fee of $2,000,000 USD, payable based upon certain funding milestones. The upfront license fee represents a certain number of licenses beyond which a subsequent recurring license fee will apply.
RADAR APP has also entered into a license agreement with RADAR USA, pursuant to which RADAR APP has granted to RADAR USA an exclusive license to its RADAR APP™ software applications and related intellectual property on the same terms and compensation structure as provided to VSBLTY under the License Agreement. RADAR APP™ is a collaborative security application that integrates citizens, local police and technology in a single platform. It operates with an interface that connects street lighting, cameras and alarm systems, allowing real-time interaction between people, police headquarters and patrol cars, preventing and immediately addressing any emergency.
Hutton further commented, “We have witnessed the significant growth of the RADAR APP network in Mexico over the last couple of years. We believe that the application of the technology, powered by VSBLTY AI, could also be successful in the USA. As a matter of strategy, we have aligned with RADAR APP, along with some key funding partners, to pursue the USA market. This approach allows VSBLTY to remain focused on our core development initiatives as we continue to expand our computer vision portfolio and capabilities.”
Certain VSBLTY management and directors have participated in an initial arm’s length financing round for RADAR USA. None of the management or directors of VSBLTY holds greater than a 1.04 percent interest in RADAR APP USA.
VSBLTY also announced the signing of Harbor Access LLC (“Harbor Access”) to optimize the company’s awareness in the North American and European Equity markets and implement a capital market communications program.
