SDI Provides Corporate Update

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Florida, Tampa – (TSX-V: SDZ) (OTCBB: SDEV)

Keith Morrison, Chairman of the Board comments: “Security Devices provides global corrections, military and law enforcement markets with advanced less-lethal munitions that combine leading ballistic and safety performance over an increased range of engagement. We believe that when properly deployed our technology provides a significant alternative and benefit compared to the use of lethal force in many stand-off situations. SDI enters 2015 having successfully competed the highest levels of independent performance valuation of our products. This, combined with several strategic opportunities to expand both our distribution channels and our product lines, should make 2015 a significant year for our stakeholders”.

Sales Growth & Product Acceptance:

SDI’s full product line continues to gain acceptance and sales growth both domestically and internationally. The family of 40mm less-lethal ammunition, including BIP payload rounds, is becoming regarded as the “safety standard” within the industry, seeing that these rounds were designed for the highest operational effectiveness at distances of up to 260 feet (80m), while still enhancing target safety if engaged from a close range of 6.5 feet (2m).

In December 2014, SDI underwent the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) stringent “Member Tested & Recommended Program”. This approval process is designed to assist the association’s membership in selecting the best products available to the tactical community. The Company’s submission for testing allowed the BIP to be placed into the field for law enforcement community acceptance and has been added to the recommended product list. There is a direct correlation between SDI’s NTOA approval and increased sales.

SDI is also pleased to announce sales in over a dozen new Federal, State and Provincial agencies over the last several quarters including Sheriff Departments, Correctional Services, and SWAT teams in; Los Angeles, CA, Sacramento, CA, Kings County, CA, Montreal, QC, Ottawa, ON, Orlando, FL, Naples, FL, Rapid City, SD, Saskatoon, SK, Watertown, SD, Abbotsford, BC, Kingston, ON, Rustburg, VA, Perry, FL, Brookings, SD, Bedford, VA along with Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta. These agencies are additions to SDI’s customer base that have adopted its best of breed 40mm less-lethal rounds on the market, today. Several re-orders from previously purchasing agencies have also occurred.

Revenues from the Company’s first fiscal quarter (2015) have exceeded the entire 2014-reported revenue base.

Scientific Validation:

According to several independent safety studies that the company has outsourced, SDI has received industry disruptive competitive analysis, displaying safety testing protocols, which have the Company to be among the safest, most effective and reliable crowd control / SWAT option on the market.

Additionally, in Q3 2014 the Company was granted the opportunity to submit its product to a blunt trauma risk assessment, conducted by L-3 Applied Technologies in association with the Human Effects Center of Excellence (HECOE). The U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program (JNLWP) established this benchmark in 2001, to coordinate non-lethal weapons requirements of the U.S. Armed Services. Under the oversight and coordination of the HECOE program, non-lethal human effects research is conducted to identify the risk and effectiveness of munitions such as SDI’s. It then shares this information among human effects researchers, and most importantly non-lethal weapons operators for acceptance.

SDI’s 40mm less-lethal rounds are now available for purchase by branches of the United States Department of Defense and Federal Law Enforcement agencies as a result of this testing protocol.


SDI has partnered with US Tactical Supply as their primary “source of supply” vehicle, under GSA Contract “GS-07F-0259N”. The purpose of this strategic partnership is to provide SDI’s products to a broader range of clientele ranging from the U.S. Department of Defense, State Law Enforcement agencies, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, U.S Dept. of Justice: FBI / Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms and the U.S. Secret Service.

The U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) is an independent branch of the US Federal Government, which helps in managing and supporting the basic functioning of federal agencies. The GSA Schedules program is the premier acquisition vehicle within the government, with approximately $50 billion a year in spending or 10 percent of overall federal procurement budget.  In order to get quality products and services at a reasonable rate, commercial vendors approach the federal government to avail their contracts and increase their user base.


As a commitment to building shareholder value, SDI has taken internal measures to reduce expenditures, manufacturing costs, minimized contractual obligations and from a management position has reduced resource costs.


Security Devices International – NTOA Members Show Approval Of SDI’s Blunt Impact Projectiles

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015


Security Devices International (SDI), a defense technology company specializing in the development of innovative next generation, non-lethal 40-mm ammunition, today announced that the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) members assigned above average ratings and reviews to several of SDI’s Blunt Impact Projectiles (BIP).

The NTOA members tested and approved four of SDI’s BIPs, all of which received over a 4.0 overall rating. A rating over 4.0 means that the product exceeds advertised specifications on a regular basis and outperforms others in usefulness and quality of workmanship.

The SDI munitions that the NTOA members tested included:

• BIP MO Malodorant Payload
• BIP ML Marking Liquid Payload
• BIP TR Training Round
• Standard BIP

NTOA’s Member Tested and Recommended program allows manufactures to have their products tested in the field by the law enforcement community. Products are tested and scored in 13 possible categories on a scale of 0-5 that include: Design, performance, ease of use, size, quality, durability, storage, versatility, convenience, application for law enforcement, comfort, cleaning/ maintenance, and accuracy. Products receiving a rating of 3.0 or higher will receive NTOA Field Tester Recommended Status.

“Our top priority is to provide the law enforcement community with options in situations that do not warrant the use of lethal force. With police officers and other law enforcement professionals being heavily scrutinized after recent controversial events, we want to equip them with a truly less-lethal option. We are thrilled that an organization as prestigious as the NTOA recognized the quality of our products,” said Gregory Sullivan, CEO of SDI.

SDI’s BIP ammunition has been designed to supersede previous blunt impact solutions such as foam, sponge, and rubber bullets while maintaining in-flight stability throughout an almost flat trajectory. SDI’s family of BIPs are designed for military, peacekeeping, homeland security, law enforcement, correctional services and private sector security, and are ideal for crowd control scenarios and can adapt to any 40mm standard issue launcher.
