(NASDAQ: LOJN), the company that invented the Stolen Vehicle Recovery market, 
has entered into a strategic alliance with TomTom, Inc., the world's leading 
supplier of location and navigation products and services. Through this 
alliance, LoJack will offer fleet telematics solutions beginning in the first

LoJack will market, install and service a range of TomTom Business Solutions 
products and services, including its highly regarded SaaS fleet management 
service – WEBFLEET. The LoJack offering will provide business owners the 
opportunity to use GPS/GSM technology to address higher fuel costs, optimize 
routing with real-time traffic data, and address unsafe driving behavior with 
WEBFLEET.  These services allow business owners the opportunity to operate 
their vehicles more efficiently and profitably, while providing increased 
asset protection, greater customer service and employee satisfaction.  The two 
organizations will also integrate TomTom's hardware, software, back-end data 
and SaaS services with LoJack's Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network technology. 
"This strategic alliance enables both companies to strengthen their position 
as best-in-class providers of automotive technology," said Thomas Schmidt, 
TomTom Business Solutions, Managing Director. "LoJack's far-reaching market 
presence will introduce TomTom's fleet management technology to new business 
markets in North America and enable existing LoJack customers to benefit from 
a full fleet management solution." 
"This alliance allows LoJack to build upon our global stolen vehicle recovery 
network technology with a wider range of solutions that add value to our 
customers and partners," said Randy L. Ortiz, President and CEO of LoJack 
Corporation. "Fleet management is the first segment we're targeting.  The 
LoJack and TomTom alliance will leverage our complementary capabilities. 
LoJack brings its brand strength, global commercial distribution, stolen 
vehicle recovery system network, automotive aftermarket leadership and unique 
law enforcement relationships. TomTom offers leadership in navigation and 
location-based services and technology, a successful SaaS business, and 
extensive experience in big data. Together, we'll introduce a full suite of 
products and services for existing and new markets."
