XPLORE Receives More Than $14 Million In C5 Purchase Orders From Major Utility

Stocks in this article: XLRT

Xplore Technologies Corp. (OTCQB: XLRT) (“Xplore” or the “Company”), a manufacturer of award-winning rugged tablet PCs, announced today that it has received purchase orders from one of the world’s largest utility companies for the purchase of more than 4,000 of the Company’s newly launched iX104C5 rugged tablet PCs, representing over $14 million in aggregate sales orders. These C5 tablets are expected to be delivered during the first half of calendar 2012 and will be used to improve the productivity of the customer’s field service operations.

“We believe an order of this magnitude is a watershed event for Xplore and indicates the superiority of Xplore’s fully rugged C5 tablet computer,” stated Philip Sassower, the Company’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe the best-in-class feature set of our new C5 tablet clearly differentiated Xplore from the rest of the competition in securing this order. Further, we believe that our family of offerings continues to favorably position Xplore to serve the expanding global rugged tablet PC market.”

Mark Holleran, President and Chief Operating Officer, said “Winning this order, the largest in our history, demonstrates Xplore’s ability to listen to the marketplace and develop superior rugged mobile solutions. We took direct input from a Fortune 50 company that understands the demands of rugged working environments and incorporated their feedback into the design of our new C5, resulting in what we believe is the best rugged PC available. The customer’s needs for its field service technicians were clear: maximize technician up-time in the field; communicate in real-time with their supervisors; order parts without returning to the depot; and update records, all in the most extreme working conditions. The C5 exceeded the customer’s expectations.”

Holleran added “we are very excited and extremely pleased with this new relationship. Prior to the receipt of the new orders, we have shipped approximately $1 million of product related to the test pilot program and another separate program initiative. We believe there are other significant opportunities for this customer that our C5 rugged tablet PC will be well-suited to address.”
