Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - May 29, 2024) - Zedcor Inc. (TSXV: ZDC) (the "Company" or "Zedcor") is pleased to announce that it has expanded its rental and service agreement to provide MobileyeZTM security towers at 23 sites for a leading North American home improvement retailer (the "Customer"). There are ten additional store locations and thirteen locations across Canada for the Customer's capital initiatives program, including new store builds or major renovations.

Additionally, the Company is pleased to report the retirement of a note payable ("Note") which has been outstanding since 2016 and was due to a director of the Company.


The Company is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the opportunity to provide MobileyeZTM security towers at additional store locations for a leading North American home improvement retailer. Under the terms of the expanded agreement with the Customer, Zedcor will provide MobileyeZTM security towers and monitoring coverage to an additional 10 store locations in Canada, bringing the total MobileyeZTM coverage for the Customer in Canada to 21 stores and two distribution centres.

In addition to the award of 10 new store locations, the Company has been awarded thirteen locations for the Customer's new store construction and renovations projects. These sites will be located across Canada and the majority of these projects will start construction in the second half of 2024.

Todd Ziniuk, President & CEO of Zedcor said: "We are proud to have been awarded additional sites for our blue-chip customer and continue to expand our relationship. We will continue to provide excellent service for the Customer, and we believe there is room for further expansion as we are providing MobileyeZTM security towers at less than 15% of the Customer's total stores in Canada. We also plan to expand our services to them to the United States and will pursue this more actively in the second half of 2024 as our production of MobileyeZTM security towers will be able to meet potential demand. We are also excited about the award of sites for the Customer's new store builds and store renovations. Zedcor is a leader in the technology-enabled physical security space for construction customers and our success rate at deterring theft is greater than any traditional security guard offering. The expanded services which we will provide to our Customer shows the opportunity of Zedcor's service offering as we are able to provide security services to more than just store locations. The MobileyeZTM solution works in various aspects of the retail business including distribution centers, new store construction and major renovations."


A payment of $3,450,000 was made to retire the balance of a Note issued in February 2016. The $3,450,000 is made up of $2,500,000 of principal and $950,000 of accrued interest.

The repayment of the Note helps the Company to reduce the amount of debt on its balance sheet and further simplify its capital structure. The Note was held by a company controlled by a director of Zedcor. A portion of the proceeds from the Company's equity raise, which closed on May 16, 2024, was used to repay the Note.


On May 29, 2024, 1,875,000 Restricted Share Units ("RSUs") were granted to employees and officers of the Company pursuant to the Company's fixed 10% RSU/DSU plan, and will expire three years from the date of grant. All of the RSUs will vest as to one third thereof on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the date of grant.
