We are very excited about the opportunity to identify and execute unique marketing partnerships across a variety of sport and lifestyle activities with the primary goal to drive sales and grow the SPOT brand.

Mojo Sports specializes in identifying, negotiating, leveraging and measuring highly relevant sponsorships and partnerships for corporate clients and was selected by SPOT because of its strategic thinking and tactical execution. Mojo Sports' will spend the majority of the 2008 4th quarter working with SPOT's management team to identify broad marketing objectives and strategic sports marketing programs to achieve their 2009 growth goals.

"We selected Mojo Sports following a thorough sports marketing agency selection process," commented Darren Bassel, Director of Marketing for SPOT, LLC. "Mojo displayed a clear understanding of the consumer electronics and outdoor markets, and an ability to think strategically and creatively with a strong focus on tactics and implementation. We are confident in their ability to help grow the SPOT brand through well executed sports marketing programs."

Mojo Sports will apply its "Four Circles" approach to achieve a cohesive marketing platform and positive return on investment for SPOT by combining the key tenets of brand visibility, brand alignment, product and technology integration, and unique experiences.

"The SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger is one of the breakthrough outdoor consumer electronic products in the last several years," said Morris Denton, partner at Mojo Sports. "We are very excited about the opportunity to identify and execute unique marketing partnerships across a variety of sport and lifestyle activities with the primary goal to drive sales and grow the SPOT brand."

Heeding feedback from SPOT about their desire to tap the off-road market, Mojo Sports developed and executed, in just four weeks, a unique sports marketing program surrounding the 2008 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 which put SPOT in the middle of the action. Through a strategic partnership with Aura360 Ventures and SCORE Trophy Truck driver Cameron Steele, Mojo Sports was able to secure SPOT branding on Steele's trophy truck and integrate SPOT technology into more than 80 race vehicles for tracking on a live website produced and executed by BFGoodrich and Volkswagen in conjunction with SCORE International. In addition to producing video for the live website, Aura360 Ventures will produce NBC's December 14th broadcast of the 2008 Baja 1000 where SPOT will be incorporated.

"Having identified off-road enthusiasts as a highly relevant group for the SPOT Messenger, we aggressively pursued opportunities to integrate SPOT at one of the world's most challenging off-road events, the Baja 1000," said Katie Schoeben, Senior Marketing Manager for SPOT LLC. "Working closely with Mojo we put together a compelling program for SPOT with a lot of touch points across a variety of marketing activities. Our ability to execute the Baja program under a condensed timeline, in a unique environment, and with a variety of marketing partners was impressive and a testament to Mojo's capabilities."

The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, including in-car commentary with driver Cameron Steele, will be televised on NBC Sports December 14, 2008 and ESPN International beginning December, 2008.
