LAKEWOOD, Colo., March 26 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- V2K International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VTOK) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, V2K Window Fashions, Inc., will launch its kiosk marketing program with a major retailer at two test sites using the proceeds of a proposed $6,100,000 investment from a strategic partner, Amerivon Holdings, LLC. Testing is anticipated to expand through the summer with an additional 25 kiosks to be rolled out at other demographically appropriate locations throughout the United States. (The transaction with Amerivon is subject to the completion of its due diligence and execution of appropriate definitive agreements covering the terms described in the term sheet.)
The unmanned kiosks will have live product custom window fashion samples. The leads generated by the kiosks will be distributed to one of the roughly 180 V2K Window Decor and More franchises who will provide the infrastructure for order fulfillment on behalf of the retailer. To view the kiosk, please visit http://www.v2kinternational.com/V2Kkiosks.asp.
Amerivon helps companies accelerate growth opportunities in mass market retail channels by providing access to distribution, consulting, and capital, and will assist V2K with the implementation of its kiosk marketing program as well as the development of additional retail concepts.
"We are proud to have Amerivon as a strategic partner as we enter the retail market," said Vic Yosha, President & CEO of V2K. "The additional capital is obviously a vital element of our plan. However, receiving the investment from Amerivon, who is widely recognized within the industry as a leading expert in this field, and having them be directly involved in the planning, development, and execution of our business plan, is the best investment partner we could have secured."
