Plaintiff Attorneys Attempt To Revive Suit Against Point Blank Self-Suspending Ballistic System Shoulder Straps

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Point Blank Enterprises, Inc. (“Point Blank”) announced today that the same plaintiffs (and same attorneys) whose class action complaint against Point Blank was dismissed on October 29, 2018 filed a new putative class action complaint against Point Blank in the Southern District of Florida, based upon the same core allegations and claims as their previously‐dismissed complaint. The new complaint again alleges that the hook‐and‐loop material in the Self‐Suspending Ballistic System (“SSBS”) feature of concealable Point Blank vests wears out over time with use. Plaintiffs do not assert that the ballistic panels contained in Point Blank vests are defective or do not perform according to National Institute of Justice standards. Nor do plaintiffs allege that any wearer of Point Blank vests has been injured, and, in fact, Point Blank concealable vests with the SSBS feature have saved the lives of many officers over the past decade. Notwithstanding the prior denial of class certification and dismissal, plaintiffs again seek to certify a nationwide class of purchasers of certain model concealable vests with the SSBS feature. As with the previously‐dismissed complaint, Point Blank continues to dispute plaintiffs’ allegations and claims, and stands by the quality and integrity of its products. Point Blank will vigorously defend itself against the lawsuit and believes that this complaint, like the prior one, will be dismissed and any effort by plaintiffs to certify any type of class here will again be denied. The Company notes that like the prior case, no law enforcement agencies are named plaintiffs in the action, and that the five individual named plaintiffs are all members of the Ohio State Troopers Association and represented by the same legal counsel again. The Company has retained outside counsel on the matter through the law firms of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, and Berger Singerman LLP.

NXT-ID INC. (OTC QB: TICKER $4.25)
MOBILE SECURITY BEYOND THE PASSWORD

STEPHEN WAITE AND KRIS TUTTLE - OCTOBER 15, 2013

Research Report October 15, 2013 - Soundview Research

"NXT-ID's Mobile-Bio technology platform is the foundation for three new product offerings designed primarily to mitigate security risk of mobile devices. These products include a modular facial recogni-tion system called Mobile-Bio FaceMatch,TM a separate, physical biometric secured electronic wallet called The Wocket,TM as well as a portable biometric device called Mobile-Bio Sensor,TM which allows an individual access through multiple devices to a protected database or server.

This segment has been active in terms of acquisitions. The first generation biometric security compa-ny (L-1 Identity Solutions) was acquired by security giant Safran for $1.6B in 2010. L-1 was predomi-nantly enterprise focused and didn't address mobile or online commerce. Apple bought mobile secu-rity firm AuthenTec for a reported $356M, predominantly for their fingerprint sensor technology.

Our initial IV case suggests a stock value of $10.90/share if the company can execute on their plans."
