Universal Announces Change In Retail Relationship

OWINGS MILLS, Md., Dec. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Universal Security Instruments, Inc. (NYSE Amex: UUU) today announced that it will be changing its current relationship with a large national retailer which has purchased smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms from the Company for sale in the retailer's stores since 2006.  Effective approximately April 1, 2010, this retailer will continue to sell the Company's products only online and through the retailer's professional contractors' desk.

This change in sales channels beginning in the Company's first fiscal quarter of fiscal 2011 should not impact the Company's inventory or sales prior to April 1, 2010.  At this time, the Company is unable to predict the exact impact of the change on the Company's sales and earnings next fiscal year.  The Company is committed to continuing to make its products easily available through other retail distributors and is seeking to establish sales channels through other major retail chains. Furthermore, as previously announced, the Company is aggressively continuing to develop new products and expects several of these to be ready for sale in the March/April timeframe.

"We believe that the introduction of our new line of technologically advanced smoke and carbon monoxide alarms should generate significant sales and earnings during our next fiscal year and should be attractive to major retail chains," said CEO Harvey Grossblatt.

UNIVERSAL SECURITY INSTRUMENTS, INC. is a U.S.-based manufacturer (through its Hong Kong Joint Venture) and distributor of safety and security devices. Founded in 1969, the Company has a 40 year heritage of developing innovative and easy-to-install products, including smoke, fire and carbon monoxide alarms.
