Oakville, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 10, 2024) - FendX Technologies Inc. (CSE: FNDX) (OTCQB: FDXTF) (FSE: E8D) (the "Company" or "FendX"), a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings is pleased to announce that the Company plans to conduct real-world testing of REPELWRAP™ film with Island View Place Care ("Island View") a senior living and memory care community.

FendX is currently engaged with Dunmore International Inc. to conduct pilot test runs on their commercial manufacturing line to optimize the manufacturing process to create films for testing in real-world settings. After successful completion of the manufacturing process at Dunmore, FendX intends to do testing at Island View, located in Saanichton, near Victoria BC, which offers high quality care at their facilities tailored for seniors and those requiring memory care. Pursuant to a letter of intent, testing will involve applying REPELWRAP™ film to high touch surfaces in Island View's facility and assessing the performance of the film over an approximate four-week timeframe to confirm if the film can maintain its repelling performance as shown in McMaster University's lab.

FendX announced on May 3, 2024 that it planned to conduct real-world testing at Giuletta, an award winning and Michelin Guide recommended Italian fine dining restaurant, to cover high touch surfaces in the restaurant with REPELWRAP™ film. The Company now has two confirmed real-world testing sites and believes the findings from these sites as well as other sites the Company may partner with, will contribute to the final product design.

Dr. Carolyn Myers, CEO of FendX states, "We are pleased to be working with Island View Place Care to test our REPELWRAP™ film under real-world conditions." Dr. Myers continues, "Island View Place Care is our second testing site, and we look forward to continuing to engage with other potential sites in various industries to test the performance of REPELWRAP™ film. Engaging with various industry testing partners will increase the breadth of our testing so we can assess performance of our film under different conditions and with different industry sectors and uses."

The Company also announces an agreement with Spark Newswire ("Spark") dated May 9, 2024, who will provide investor relations consulting services for a four-month period for a fee of C$75,000 plus GST per month. The services include supporting the Company to create new, consistent and effective communication strategies, as well as create content and conduct social media activities.
