June 29, 2014



PHOENIX, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Armor Designs, Inc. ("Armor" or the "Company"), a leading designer, integrator and manufacturer of body and vehicular armor solutions for military, government and commercial use, today announced its fiscal year-end results for the period ending December 31, 2013 and the filing of its Annual Report on June 30, 2014.

"In just the few short weeks of my tenure at Armor Designs, we have achieved significant accomplishments," said David Oliveira, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "We have appointed a new nominated advisor and broker (NOMAD), we restored our trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, which had been suspended since May 2, 2014, and we elected Mr. Robert Elizondo as Chairman of the Board of directors. The Company also signed a non-exclusive distributorship agreement on June 10(th) with Achilles Technology Solutions, an established global distributor of innovative safety and security technologies, services and products, which is a cornerstone to our new marketing strategy to increase the distribution channels for our products. Over the past eighteen months, the Company has successfully raised over US$3 million in common equity capital in two private placement offerings for which the funds were used for working capital needs in addition to sustaining current operations and overhead costs.

"While we are proud of our accomplishments so far, we have just begun. Our near-term objectives are to reduce our debt and restructure our balance sheet, increase our stock liquidity and float. From a strategic standpoint, our goals are to solidify our existing distribution contracts and expand the marketing of our products worldwide. My transition into the chief executive role at Armor Designs has been smooth and seamless, and we have received tremendous support from our shareholders, vendors, distributors, research partners and prospective end-users. Moreover, we could not have completed the process without inexhaustible efforts from our outstanding team professional employees, board members and outside counsel, and we extend to them our extreme gratitude.

"Our new mission statement is to make the best products in our space to protect those who protect us. To maintain our core beliefs and principles while exhibiting the highest integrity and transparency and building shareholder value," concluded Mr. Oliveira.

Financial Results Year Ended December 31, 2013

For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company incurred net losses from operations of approximately US$4.8 million, or ($0.18) per share, which compares to a loss of US$4.3 million, or ($0.16) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2012. The Company is currently in preliminary discussions in relation to the status of this contract. Despite the sharp decline in revenues, our operating loss for 2013 year of $4.1 million was only 5% greater than our operating loss of $3.9 million incurred in 2012, primarily because of a 56% reduction in our general and administrative expenses.

Management is pursuing ways to improve operating results in order to generate additional cash flow from operations. In June 2014, the Company recently issued 1,000,000 shares of common stock for approximately US $1,000,000 pursuant to a private placement in addition to a previous equity offering completed in 2013 of 136,667 shares totaling US$2,050,000 in a private placement. During the 12-month period ended December 31, 2013, the Company raised US$2,050,000 by issuing 136,667 shares of common stock at a price of US$15 pursuant to a private placement. The Company may also consider other forms of non-equity fundraisings for the same purpose which may include debt financing collateralized by the Company's assets.
