4Licensing Corporation And The American Kennel Club® Announce Worldwide Representation Agreement

4Licensing Corporation (OTC Link: FOUR) and the American Kennel Club® (“AKC”) are proud to announce the signing of a multi-year worldwide representation agreement. The agreement will allow 4Licensing Corporation (“4LC”) to serve as the AKC exclusive worldwide licensing agent for the AKC name and its extensive collection of trademarks and logos in various categories.

"Over the last ten years we have enjoyed a very successful licensing partnership with the AKC, and we are excited to work once again with such a prestigious organization. We plan to capitalize on our partnership with the AKC by meeting the growing global demand for “blue ribbon” dog products that reflect the quality, image and prestige long associated with the AKC’s 129-year history," said Bruce R. Foster, Interim Chief Executive Officer of 4LC.

Since joining forces in 2003, 4Licensing Corporation and the American Kennel Club have been at the forefront of the burgeoning pet product industry, thanks to their competitive focus on building the AKC brand into a premier retail dog brand. The 4LC and AKC licensing relationship successfully established the AKC as the “Best in Breed” in pet products, brokering multi-year deals with industry leaders such as Pet Brands (toys and treats), Jewett-Cameron (dog kennels and furniture), and European Home Designs, LLC (dog beds and accessories). 4LC and the AKC intend to not only continue to participate in the pet industry boom, but to expand the AKC brand even further.
