equipment markets, doing business as Star brite(R) and StarTron(R),
is pleased to announce the sponsorship of five nationally broadcast
television shows in 2013. 
"We know that advertising and promotion plays a key role in reaching
viewers who might not be aware of the quality and effectiveness of
the Star brite(R) and StarTron(R) products," said Gregor M. Dornau,
Executive Vice President - Sales & Marketing. "We are especially
directing our efforts at consumers who own boats, automobiles,
trucks, power sports
 and lawn and garden equipment. In addition, the
increased advertising activities will continue to build brand
awareness and goodwill of our brands which should ultimately increase
sales of our products." 
The hosts of the shows "Addictive Fishing" starring Blair Wiggins on
Sun Sports, "Ship Shape TV" starring John Greviskis on Fox Sports,
"Truck U" and "Two Guys Garage" on the Speed Channel plus George
Poveromo's "World of Saltwater Fishing" on NBC Sports will
demonstrate the benefits of Star brite(R) and StarTron(R) products in
special segments on the show, as well as mention Star brite(R) or
StarTron(R) when appropriate during the show. Additionally,
thirty-second commercials will appear on all the programs to promote
Star brite(R) and StarTron(R) brand and product awareness. 
"These shows and their hosts are all considered leaders in their
specific genres, plus the shows air on different channels which allow
us to reach a broader share of our core customer base," Mr. Dornau
said. "We will emphasize the superior qualities of all our Star
brite(R) products that have contributed to the Company's strong
market share for 40 years and the effectiveness of StarTron(R)
Enzyme(TM) Fuel Treatment to combat the ill effects of E-10 fuels."  
The Company is also pleased to announce a sponsorship agreement with
popular Professional Bass Angler Patrick Pierce, who will represent
Star brite(R) and StarTron(R) at a number of important bass
tournaments during 2013. Patrick will help the Company launch our new
