AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:XPLR), a global leader in rugged computing, today reported the retirement of Philip S. Sassower, 77, as chairman of the board, and his concurrent resignation from the board of directors. During more than 12 years of tenure, he served as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. Earlier this year, he stepped down from his role as CEO.

Mr. Sassower has determined that, due to Xplore Technologies Corp.'s stable financial condition, increased sales and profitability, and completion of the integration of the Motion Computing assets acquired in 2015, it is timely for him to retire as chairman of the board, and from the board of directors.

"Xplore wishes to thank Phil for his many years of service," said Mark Holleran, Chief Executive Officer. "During his tenure, Xplore was recapitalized, consolidated its business into the Austin headquarters, listed on the Nasdaq, completed the acquisition of a major competitor and grew to become the #2 global provider of rugged tablet PCs. We wish him all the best in his retirement."
