Mad Catz® Announces “Designed for Samsung” Mobile Gaming Products at Mobile World Congress

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT:MCZ) (TSX:MCZ), a global provider of innovative entertainment products, today announced the details of its mobile gaming controllers under the Designed for Samsung (“DFS”) Program.

As an official partner in the DFS Program, Mad Catz will introduce, alongside the much anticipated debut of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and SamsungGalaxy S7™ edge smartphones, DFS-compatible versions of its acclaimed Micro C.T.R.L.R™ Mobile Gamepad and S.U.R.F.R™ Wireless Media and Game Controller at the 2016 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. With the debut of these products, Mad Catz will become the first company to offer traditional video game controller hardware under the DFS Program.

Consumers can expect to unleash the full gaming power of their Samsung® smartphone or tablet with the Mad Catz Micro C.T.R.L.R Mobile Gamepad and streamline command of all of their Android-powered devices with the Mad Catz S.U.R.F.R Wireless Media and Game Controller. Additional shortcut buttons will also be enabled for the latest generation devices.

The Micro C.T.R.L.R provides a console-quality gaming experience for mobile devices, ideal for today’s increasingly popular controller-compatible mobile games. Featuring dual analog sticks, a responsive D-Pad, and shoulder and action buttons, the Micro C.T.R.L.R delivers all of the features gamers demand, in a gamepad that’s 20% smaller than a full-sized controller. Three modes of play provide multi-platform accessibility – including mobile gaming, PC gaming and a mouse mode – that enable users to easily navigate on-screen menus. When connected to supported Samsung devices, enhanced features allow gamers to access dedicated controls for recent apps, media and volume as well as navigating on-screen menus.

S.U.R.F.R, the ultimate multimedia surfer and game controller from Mad Catz, streamlines command of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Smartphones, Tablet or Android-powered media streaming device. Users can now play games, control media, navigate the web and input text, all with one compact device. Featuring true gamepad controls, a full QWERTY keyboard and a full suite of multimedia controls, the S.U.R.F.R puts favorite media right at users’ fingertips. Rigorously tested to meet Samsung performance standards, the S.U.R.F.R includes expanded navigation and shortcut features for supported Samsung devices. With one-touch hot keys, users can access recent apps, search the phone for desired content, access multi-window view, snap a screen capture and more!

“Samsung has vastly improved the way Android users connect with one another and utilize their mobile devices and, via this partnership Mad Catz, will provide Samsung Mobile consumers the opportunity to enhance their gaming and multi-media experiences,” said Andrew Young, Chief Technology Officer of Mad Catz. “We are proud to be a part of that ongoing innovation by supporting the DFS Program through our world-class GameSmart mobile gaming products.”

“With the introduction of the game-changing Samsung Galaxy S7, mobile gaming is poised to experience strong growth as additional mobile games are developed with controller support. Our DFS-enabled GameSmart products, including the Micro C.T.R.L.R and S.U.R.F.R, will deliver features and functionality that take full advantage of Samsung smartphone and tablets, as well as other Bluetooth® enabled connected devices. In addition, the DFS Program will allow us to display a ‘Designed for Samsung’ logo on packaging, helping to communicate to consumers the seamless compatibility betweenGameSmart products and Samsung smartphones and tablets.”

Cesium Presents the 2016 Montreal Cesar Awards!

Team is a word that manifests itself regularly in our daily vocabulary. It is because we truly believe in our team, and every partnership that we have built over the years, that we wanted to illustrate to you just how much we appreciate you!

It is after numerous team brainstorming sessions and an amalgamation of great ideas that we decided to launch the Cesar Awards; a fun, tasteful and unique awards evening designed to show you how much we appreciate all our partners. At Cesium we do things differently, the Cesium way!

The awards evening took place in Montreal, Quebec on February 18th, 2016 at a Montreal hot spot called Scarlet Exclusive, located in the beautiful and historic Old Montreal area. Through meticulous coordination with the very cooperative and organized staff at Scarlet Exclusive we were able to transform the cozy restaurant into a red carpet ready venue. A stage was installed along with red velour curtains, 8 foot Oscar statues and of course, a red carpet!  This award themed evening could not be complete without a professional DJ and photographer, to ensure that all our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had beautiful keepsakes from this unforgettable night!

The Cesars were hosted by our very own dynamic duo: Senior Account Manager, Massimo Bono and Operations Manager, Corey Darbyson. They did a brilliant job hosting the evening and did not hold back on the humor. The whole room was filled with laughter and enjoyment from start to finish. We even had a few of our guests reach the point of tears. The awards were divided into 3 categories: Vendor, Customer and Employee. The Cesars were designed to be a fun acknowledgement of our unique and valued relationships with our partners and Cesium team. We are very glad to say that the evening continued with dancing, mingling and a lot more laughter long after the last award was handed out!

This is a night that was put together so that we could laugh at ourselves, have fun together, and first and foremost, recognize our amazing customers and partners who contribute greatly to our success! Every day we strive to work hard, make a difference and have fun while doing it. That is exactly what we achieved; the night was a great success and enjoyed by all! The Cesar Awards  truly encompass the values that Cesium believes are imperative to success and are a testament of what can be done when a hard working and dedicated team is in place!

Once again, we thank you all for making Cesium’s success possible and we look forward to seeing you all next year!

VERUS Rebrands as VRS DESIGN

Mobile Accessories Manufacturer Readjusts as it Gears for Expansion

BREA, California—February 17, 2016—Verus®—known for its mid-to-high-end Apple® and Android™ cell phone cases and covers—is announcing a complete company rebranding initiative in the 2016 fiscal year to accompany its expanding product line-up and changing corporate philosophy. The Verus brand and all of its properties—with the exception of older product lines nearing discontinuation—will adopt the VRS Design™ name and insignia effective immediately. Products in stock already branded as Verus will continue to be sold until depletion.

The decision revolves around design and fashion as focal points of all upcoming product launches in response to the current climate of rapidly changing consumer demand in the mobile accessories market especially. Other efforts have been made to further dominate the target demographic of professionals in their 20s and 30s: to create deeper immersion into the brand’s new design language, VRS Design is also diversifying its product portfolio beyond cell phone and tablet cases to include a wider range of offerings.

About Verus

Originally named after the Latin word for “true,” Verus was founded in South Korea as a manufacturer of third-party Apple accessories. The company first opened its North American branch in Brea, California in 2014 as its global operations headquarters and has since entered Canadian online and retail distribution channels. Verus products are available in over 40 countries worldwide, and annual revenue currently exceeds 50 million USD.

Flagship products include the popular Damda series, a cell phone case and wallet hybrid; the Layered Dandy, a PU leather wallet case; and the High Pro Shield, a minimalistic, brushed metal design case.
