Expects to Begin Shipping Units to Customers in Q2 – 2019
March 6, 2019, Pompano Beach, FL – Brownie’s Marine Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: BWMG) a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of highly specialized dive and safety products announced that it had ordered parts necessary to commence the first production run of its breakthrough dive development stage product “NEMO,” which is an ultra-portable, compact, affordable, and easy-to-use dive system. NEMO was engineered to revolutionize the 100-year old sport of snorkeling. The 1-1/4-pound submersible battery pack powers the automatic air delivery system for an average of an hour. Multiple patent applications, both foreign and domestic are in process to potentially protect this industry disrupting technology out into the year 2038 and beyond. The Company formed a subsidiary BLU3, Inc. to develop and market new electric-shallow dive systems that are meant for the recreational diving population, including NEMO.
In November 2018, the Company concluded its Kickstarter campaign, which offered units at attractive pre-buy pricing resulting in 345% of the minimum sales goal, with over 300 units pre-ordered. The Company also displayed the first NEMO prototype at the largest and most important marine industry’s international conference, the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association Conference (“DEMA Show”) held in November 2018 in Las Vegas, NV.
Carmichael, Brownie’s Chairman and CEO stated, “We are extremely encouraged by
the interest shown to date in the NEMO product and believe it will be an
excellent incremental revenue generator for us. We continue to make minor
modifications and engineering improvements to the product, but I’m pleased to
report that we are on track for our first production run of NEMO in the second
quarter of 2019.”
