Breaking News: First Responder Technologies and Falcon Eye Drones Sign an Exclusive Distribution Agreement for UAE and Wider GCC

First Responder Technologies Inc., a developer of WiFi-based technologies for detecting concealed weapons and for deterring mass shooting and terror attacks involving concealed weapons, is pleased to announce that on July 21, 2020 it signed an exclusive reseller and strategic partnership agreement (the “Distribution Agreement“) with Falcon Eye Drones & Ariel Photography LLC (“FEDS“) for the distribution of the Company’s Sentinel™ WiFi concealed weapons detection units (the “Units“) in the Gulf Cooperation Council member states (BahrainKuwaitOmanQatarSaudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) (the “GCC” or the “Territory“).

FEDS is a Dubai-based technology company that offers surveying, monitoring and inspection services using drone technology. Additional information about FEDS is available on FEDS’ website, which may be accessed at: https://www.feds.ae/.

“We are exceptionally pleased to welcome FEDS as our exclusive reseller and strategic partner in the GCC region. Dubai in particular, has been a global leader in the development of smart city infrastructure, and we look forward to introducing a 21st century public safety solution to the region, that also protects individual liberty and personal privacy. We are also excited about exploring the development of drone-based and other mobile applications for our Sentinel suite of products and services alongside FEDS. FEDS brings both technical and commercial excellence to the partnership, which is an ideal combination, as we begin shipping and installing our MVP products in key markets at the end of this year,” said Robert Delamar, the Company’s CEO.

If FEDS acquires and distributes the minimum number of the Company’s Units required to maintain exclusive distribution rights in the Territory, as required by the terms of the Distribution Agreement, the Distribution Agreement may generate more than USD $10.6 million in revenue through the end of 2022. The Company anticipates a gross margin of up to approximately 50% per unit, once the Company’s supply chain and manufacturing reach maturity and scale.

“It is a very exciting opportunity to partner with First Responder and bring this unique tech to our region. We believe there is a huge demand for such a solution and we are very much looking forward to not only developing the business here but also being part of the long term strategic product plans of First Responder,” said Rabih Bou Rashid, CEO of FEDS.

Pursuant to the Company’s previously disclosed product development roadmap, delivery of the first units under the Distribution Agreement are anticipated to be delivered before the close of calendar 2020, with delivery accelerating as the Company meets development milestones through 2021 and 2022.

FEDS will work with First Responder through the remainder of 2020, to engage defence and public safety agencies in the Territory, as well as ramp up and roll out customer support and service in the Territory. As First Responder’s exclusive partner in the Territory, all sales, installation and after-market support and service will be provided to customers by FEDS, with First Responder providing support to FEDS as needed. The Distribution Agreement will remain in effect until terminated by the parties, and the exclusivity provisions contained therein will remain in effect until December 31, 2022.

The Company continues to make progress developing reseller partnerships in most of the major global markets.
