“As a former COO in the Sanyo North America group, I understand the necessary
procedures that need to be taken in order for a company to thrive, “said Mr.
Schwartz. “I look forward to helping ZAGG prosper in both our growth phase and
through daily company operations.”

Throughout his career, Mr. Schwartz has successfully held C-level executive
positions. Most recently, Mr. Schwartz served as the CEO of a Sanyo North
America subsidiary from 2007-2013, a member of the Panasonic Group, a global
company with leading energy and environmental technology and products for
commercial and consumer use. In addition to his role as CEO, Mr. Schwartz
served as the COO for a subsidiary of Sanyo North America from 2007 up until
2012 when the company was sold to Panasonic and other entities. During his
time at Sanyo North America, Mr. Schwartz transformed an under-performing
corporation into a powerful operating structure attuned to evolving customer
and market demands committed to bottom-line performance. Within two years, he
reduced operating expenses by 30% and transformed an operating loss into a 15%
operating profit. Mr. Schwartz also has a track record of developing processes
and procedures to increase overall operational performance of 3rd party
manufacturing plants in Asia to improve customer replenishment cycles and
reduce inventories.

As the new COO of ZAGG, Mr. Schwartz will be in charge of overseeing the
operating disciplines of the company including inventory management,
logistics, purchasing, supply-chain, and Asia sourcing, including factory
qualification and selection.

“We are delighted to have Jason joining our team at this crucial time in the
evolution of our company. Through his extensive experience, Jason brings an
array of skills and technical capabilities that will allow the Company to
execute on our strategic objectives,” stated Mr. Hales. “Filling the COO role
