					BANG® – as Official Energy Drink of NHL Florida Panthers & BB&T Center

It was just announced that VPX’s BANG® will be named official energy drink of the NHL Florida
Panthers and the BB&T Center, formerly known as the Bank Atlantic Center.

Weston, FL, February 07, 2013 --( Since its' release in late 2012, BANG® has already
captivated energy and health conscious connoisseurs country-wide. What was thought to be a new
beverage concept has now developed into a cult-like craze. The high demand for the Bang beverage has
peaked interest not only with consumers, but also with athletes looking to benefit from an intelligently
designed hybrid sports nutrition / energy drink. It is attracting individuals seeking a soda-alternative free
from toxic sugars with essential amino acids to fuel the body.

With the NHL Lockout now behind us, BANG® steps-in to help support the NHL Florida Panthers by
becoming the team's official energy drink, as well as being named the official energy drink of the BB&T
center. The Florida Panthers are set to start the season with a BANG - fueling their starting line-up with a
scientifically engineered beverage containing patented novel water-stable Covalently Bonded
Creatine/Glutamine Peptide, Caffeine, BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) and a patented
encapsulated CoQ10. This out-of-the-box innovative approach has both the kinetic and potential fuel to
induce and conserve energy. Unlike typical energy drinks, BANG® contains Jack Owoc's Patented
Bioactive Creatine Species by fueling Bang® with a water-stable creatine to increase ATP (the body's
energy 'currency') without carbs or other heath-robbing nutrients like sugar. Creatine, Glutamine and
CoQ10 not only increase the rate at which energy is stored, but also help to produce energy by firing up
the powerhouse in muscle cells called, mitochondria. This inner network of energy production and
storage makes BANG® the perfect beverage to jump-start the Florida Panthers to victory.

Sports Performance & Energy
Typical energy drinks supply our body with sugar ignoring long term energy needs. Athletes and energy
connoisseurs know that consuming sugar has a short term boost that soon crashes energy levels below
baseline. They are well aware that you are not going derive an energy benefit late in the day or on game
day in the fourth-quarter when needed most. BANG® is the first ever hybrid energy / sports drink that
supplies energy right when the puck is dropped until a tie breaker in overtime.

Energy at the Cellular Level
BANG® also contains CoQ10 which is not only required, but, responsible for activating cellular energy.
CoQ10 helps to optimize energy synthesis by protecting the integrity of the mitochondria necessary for
maintaining energy production. CoQ10 is a non-polar compound which means it does not dissolve well
into water. In addition, the non-polarity of CoQ10 correlates with the reduced bioavailability compared to
water soluble compounds. In order to fortify with CoQ10, VPX® has partnered with VIRUN® and
Specialty Products Division at Hormel Foods to combine a patented CoQ10 encapsulation technology
exclusive to the BANG® formulation and composition. Having access to the patented technology for
CoQ10 allows for a stable CoQ10 inclusion, clearer appearance and reduction in unfavorable flavor notes.
The encapsulation technology is GRAS and patented.

Jack Owoc, CEO and founder of VPX/Redline stated, “VPX® has been the frontrunner in innovative
product design and new scientifically proven approaches that deliver super-premium functionality.' Owoc
passionately commands 'If it's broke - Fix It!' You have an antiquated energy drink segment that's broke.
The ingredient profile was developed in the 1980's and the leaders in the category blindly knocked it off.
These toxic liquid sugar delivery drinks needed to be fixed. That's exactly why we engineered BANG!.
The media keeps talking about the high caffeine in energy drinks when, in fact, it's the high sugar content
that's killing everyone! It's easy to create a life-sucking sugar drink to get a short-term effect. However,
designing a truly performance based beverage is what makes BANG® a uniquely different drink. It took
almost five years to be awarded the bioactive creatine patent that fuels BANG. This is what makes BANG
provide a unique consumer experience that will be long remembered.”
