The EnerPlex SurfrTM product line is the first series
of protective phone cases to leverage the lightweight qualities and
superior aesthetics of Ascent Solar's CIGS solar technology. It extends
the battery life of either the Apple (News - Alert) iPhone 4® or Samsung
Galaxy S III® while preserving the high level of design
quality that consumers demand. Consumers can now incorporate green
technology into their everyday life, improving the performance of their
smart phone without compromising style.

Mr. Rob Roche, Ascent's Vice-President of Sales & Marketing said,
"Golfers today use their smart phones for a wide range of applications
such as GPS, Swing Analysis and filming; yet there is no convenient
source of power on the golf course to charge their phones when their
batteries run out. EnerPlex products provide that guaranteed power
source at all times. Cementing EnerPlex's position in the golf market
was the inclusion of the EnerPlex urfr in Golf Digest as one of the Top
Ten items golfers need today."
Mr. Roche went on to say, "The Canadian golf market is an important
segment for Ascent Solar to pursue and we have found the perfect partner
for this market entry with MKRAK Management. MKRAK Management has proven
itself in bringing new and technologically advanced products into the
Canadian golf market." With its extensive experience with distribution
in the golf industry, MKRAK Management will be responsible for growing
Ascent's presence in the Canadian marketplace and will focus on
establishing the EnerPlex brand in various national retailers and pro
Mr. Mark Krakower, President & CEO of MKRAK Management said, "We are
very excited about working with Ascent. Ascent Solar's line of products
is revolutionary and will fill the void that golfers must fill today
when they are on the golf course or on the range and their smart phones
need power suddenly, but none is available. The EnerPlex line of
products will become an integral part of the golfer's equipment that
they won't go to the course or the practice range without."
