Forward Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:FORD), a consumer electronics accessories company, announced today it has entered into an exclusive license agreement with G-Form, LLC. Forward specializes in taking innovative intellectual property and accelerating its adoption in the marketplace. G-Form designs cutting edge protective solutions for consumer electronics devices, including such products as the Extreme Sleeve™ for iPad and the Extreme Sleeve™ for Laptops.

The partnership provides Forward with a global exclusive license to sell Forward-branded products incorporating G-Form’s RPT™ - Reactive Protection Technology, to consumer electronics retailers, original equipment manufacturers, and into other business-to-business channels. In addition, the Agreement enables Forward to sell G-Form branded products into Forward’s territory.

Brett M. Johnson, Forward’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Our strategy is to leverage our design, logistics, and sourcing expertise to build a global, multi-channel (retail, corporate, online, as well as OEM) consumer electronics accessory brand that defines itself through leading edge technology. Our exclusive global partnership with G-Form’s extensive patented protection technology is the cornerstone of our strategy to accelerate innovation in the consumer electronics market. We are confident that this partnership with G-Form will be the first of many in a broadly diversified portfolio of partnerships focused on the consumer electronics accessory market and defined by leading technology.“

G-Form's Extreme Sleeve™ for iPad and Extreme Sleeve™ for Laptops are composed of RPT™ - Reactive Protection Technology, a combination of PORON XRD material and proprietary G-Form technology and design. The RPT™ absorbs more than 90 percent of the energy of an impact and stiffens to act like armor resulting in an unprecedented level of protection for laptops, iPads and other tablets.

Mr. Johnson continued, “In all my years in this industry, I have never seen anything like G-Form’s line of Extreme Sleeves™. The technology is truly revolutionary and has impressed every customer to whom we have demonstrated its protective qualities.”
