5BARz International Inc. Announces Latin America Marketing Strategy

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — 5BARz International Inc. (OTCBB: BARZ), (Boerse-Berlin: O5B), (www.5BARz.com) (hereafter “5BARz” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has developed and is implementing a multi channel marketing strategy for Latin America in response to the very favorable results from testing the 5barz road warrior device by several of the major wireless operators.

During the first quarter of 2011, that Company received multiple NDA’s signed by several major wireless operators in the region.  Subsequently, the engineering departments of these operators analyzed and successfully tested the 5barz road warrior device in their respective labs.  Test results indicated that the 5barz road warrior met or exceeded testing protocols established by the engineering departments.  This is the initial step before full scale adoption of the technology and integration into their network infrastructure.  “It is essential for the engineering departments of the major wireless carriers to endorse our technology as we work together in delivering a cellular network infrastructure solution.  We are extremely excited to date with the response from the various engineering departments throughout the region and look forward to continue to work closely with these departments over the next several months as we develop products for their networks,” stated Daniel Bland, CEO of 5barz.

The Company has been expanding its employee/consultant base in Latin America due to significant product interest.

The Latam Market

The Company has analyzed the fundamentals of the mobile phone market in the LATAM countries and has determined that to be a key point for market penetration for the 5BARz products for the following reasons:

The mobile phone market has just gone through a very strong decade of growth in Latin America, with mobile subscriptions having overtaken fixed lines as the preferred method of communication. As a result Latin America’s mobile telephone industry has a high degree of market penetration. Mobile subscriptions totaled 88.2% of the region’s population, compared to 55.2% in Asia Pacific, 90.4% in North America and 50.6% in the Middle East and Africa. Having recently invested heavily in subscription development, the cellular network operators are now focusing upon the maintenance of their substantial customer base, and the 5BARz technology may contribute substantially to achieving that customer satisfaction.

The mobile telephone industry in Latin America has benefited from generally opening up to competition. This provides a very fertile ground for the introduction of a technology such as 5BARz to secure customer retention through quality of service.

The inherent geographical difficulties in laying fixed line infrastructure have encouraged a move to mobiles, but in addition, that geography, the Andean and Rainforest regions and expanses of rural areas again benefit from the 5BARz technology whereby weak cellular signal is amplified within the vicinity of the user.

Further the LATAM countries are experiencing a renewed era of strong growth, reflecting reviving economic growth and improving income levels. This again is a favorable factor for the introduction of our products to meet the growing demands of consumers.

In addition, the launch of 3G and mobile broadband services has increased demand for mobile subscriptions. Mobile broadband is particularly desirable in areas with no or limited access to cable internet services. Moving to mobiles offers consumers the benefits of on-the-move communications and advantageous introductory deals. Greater access to communications also helps to narrow regional divides. All of these factors are enhanced by the 5BARz experience.

Initial 3G market expansion is likely to be greater in the region’s wealthier markets, such as Argentina, Chile and Mexico, and these have been specifically targeted by our Company with very favorable results.

5BARz International Inc. Appoints Mr. Finis Conner to Advisory Board

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — 5BARz International Inc. (OTCBB: BARZ), (Boerse-Berlin: O5B), (www.5BARz.com) (hereafter “5BARz” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Mr. Finis Conner, one of the original founders of Seagate Technology, Inc., has joined the Advisory Board of 5Barz International Inc., effective immediately.

For his entire career Finis Conner has correctly identified and executed winning trends in the lightning fast technology industry.

Conner’s experience in selling, designing and manufacturing hard disk drives played a major role in creating the multi-trillion dollar, global technology market that we know today. Mr. Conner has been pivotal in migrating computing from floor towers, desktops, laptops and now to your back pocket with smaller devices, higher capacity and lower costs.

Mr. Conner’s career was launched when he co-founded Shugart Associates in 1973, where they produced and sold 8″ floppy and hard (HDD) disc drives. The company was sold to Xerox Corporation in 1977.

Conner’s never ending focus on “new market trends” and what “customers need” has served him well since then.

In 1979, Conner recognized the trend to smaller computers and conceived the original 5 1/4″, 5MB Winchester disc drive which led to co-founding Seagate Technology. Many computer manufactures at the time didn’t see the need for that much memory but Conner sought out and later sold Steve Job at Apple Computer, 95% of his first years production. Today Seagate is the largest drive company in the world with a $12 Billion market capitalization, 50,000 employees and shipping over 50,000,000 drives per quarter.

In 1986, Conner saw the eventual migration of computers to even smaller and smaller form factors and developed the 31/2″ hard drive. There was little interest at Seagate to develop this drive at the time, so Mr. Conner set out to start yet another company.

Conner found an eager partner in Compaq Computer who invested $35,000,000 in the new Conner Peripherals and became the launch customer for the 3 1/2″ Winchester Drive.

Conner Peripherals was an instant success and became the fastest-growing company in U.S. history with Conner leading the growth of the company to $1.4 billion in sales in only its 4th year and $2.7 billion in its 10th year, when he engineered the sale of the company to his former company and then rival, Seagate.

Mr. Conner had developed top management teams throughout his career in multiple disciplines including, sales, marketing, manufacturing and distribution. Under Conner, both Seagate and Conner Peripherals built World Class ISO 9001 high tech manufacturing facilities around the globe, including, California, Singapore, China, Vietnam, Ireland, Scotland and Italy.

Over his career, his companies were responsible for creating in excess of 160,000 high quality, high paying technology jobs.

Visionary student of market trends, and a leader in developing market beating companies with unmatched financial performance, Finis Conner has been an unparalleled leader in the Storage market and key player in the development of the worldwide computer market.

“I have been working for years to provide solutions to the very rapidly growing Mobile markets for communication, content, financial, ID and security.

“5BARz has a global focus in bringing a unique and important solution to the mobile communication markets around the world and this will provide long term value to these markets.  I am very pleased to have an opportunity to participate with the members of management and a distinguished Advisory Board,” stated Mr. Conner

Mr. Conner is currently the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BluStor, LTD.

Mr. Daniel Bland, President and CEO of 5BARz International Inc., states, “Since getting involved with the 5BARz technology, we have maintained close contact with Finis, as the Company contemplates the logistics of a global rollout of our cellular network infrastructure products.  As one of the noted executives that help build the global personal computer industry we are extremely excited to welcome Finis to our advisory board.  His experience and insights are invaluable to 5BARz as we negotiate this opportunity through a global roll-out. Mr. Conner joins fellow Advisory Board member Mr. Marcello Caputo (CEO of Telefonica USA) and Mr. George Lauro, as we integrate the 5BARz™ technology into the wireless marketplace in the Americas and beyond.”
