Stocks in this article: ASTI

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules integrated into the new EnerPlex TM line of consumer products, announced today the appointment of MKRAK Management Inc. as the company’s exclusive distributor to golf pro-shops and select retail stores in the Canadian market.

The EnerPlex Surfr TM product line is the first series of protective phone cases to leverage the lightweight qualities and superior aesthetics of Ascent Solar’s CIGS solar technology. It extends the battery life of either the Apple iPhone 4 ® or Samsung Galaxy S III ® while preserving the high level of design quality that consumers demand. Consumers can now incorporate green technology into their everyday life, improving the performance of their smart phone without compromising style.

More information on the entire EnerPlex line can be found at www.goenerplex.com.

Mr. Rob Roche, Ascent’s Vice-President of Sales & Marketing said, “Golfers today use their smart phones for a wide range of applications such as GPS, Swing Analysis and filming; yet there is no convenient source of power on the golf course to charge their phones when their batteries run out. EnerPlex products provide that guaranteed power source at all times. Cementing EnerPlex’s position in the golf market was the inclusion of the EnerPlex Surfr in Golf Digest as one of the Top Ten items golfers need today.”

Mr. Roche went on to say, “The Canadian golf market is an important segment for Ascent Solar to pursue and we have found the perfect partner for this market entry with MKRAK Management. MKRAK Management has proven itself in bringing new and technologically advanced products into the Canadian golf market.” With its extensive experience with distribution in the golf industry, MKRAK Management will be responsible for growing Ascent’s presence in the Canadian marketplace and will focus on establishing the EnerPlex brand in various national retailers and pro shops.
