Destiny Media Technologies Announces Major UK Distribution Agreement
VANCOUVER, BC. - - Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DSNY) is pleased to announce an exclusive agreement to distribute Clipstream™, Bannerstream™ and ClipstreamMail™ in the United Kingdom with DigiStream Limited. This arrangement is another step forward in Destiny's international distribution efforts for their streaming and secure media distribution technologies.
This six-year agreement includes an up front fee in addition to royalty payments to Destiny. In order for DigiStream to maintain the exclusive UK rights to Destiny's products, DigiStream must generate minimum royalties to Destiny of several million dollars in the first three years of the agreement. Although the exclusive agreement is restricted to the UK, DigiStream will have the non-exclusive right to sell Destiny's Clipstream™ products into the rest of Europe.
"We're very excited about the enormous market potential in the United Kingdom," Says DigiStream Managing Director Simon Powell, "We see a long and prosperous relationship with Destiny. The UK is a hub for commerce in Europe and we see a tremendous opportunity to leverage our relationships in web advertising and with the major UK ISPs. We will also be targeting web designers, direct marketing companies and telecommunication companies in the UK and other parts of Europe."
Destiny VP Sales, Mark Toffoli comments, "Part of our strategy is to build beach heads in markets Destiny is not serving directly. We are confident that DigiStream will meet and exceed their targeted sales levels."
Destiny CEO Steve Vestergaard adds, "This European distribution agreement complements the Japanese agreement announced on January 4th and reflects Destiny's plan to make Clipstream™ a global product."
