Hap Klopp, Founder of The North Face, Joins 4Licensing Corporation Board of Directors

NEW YORK--(OTC Link:FOUR) 4Licensing Corporation (“4LC”) is pleased to announce that Kenneth “Hap” Klopp, founder of The North Face, has been appointed to the 4LC Board of Directors. Mr. Klopp has had a distinguished career, including being the Founder, President and CEO of The North Face organization over a 20-year span. He transformed The North Face from a start-up business to an international manufacturing, licensing and retail distribution company selling in over 45 countries. Mr. Klopp’s leadership earned The North Face many awards, which included being recognized by Business Week Magazine for providing one of the highest quality products of any company in the United States. Mr. Klopp brings with him extensive knowledge and significant relationships, coupled with proven strategic vision, to assist 4LC as it brings its isoBLOX® technology to market.
“We are delighted to have someone of Mr. Klopp’s experience join the Company’s Board of Directors,” said Duminda DeSilva, Interim Chairman of the 4LC Board of Directors. “Hap’s vast industry relationships and intimate understanding of brand building should prove to be an invaluable resource for the Company as we roll out the isoBLOX® technology. I look forward to having him on our team.”

“isoBLOX® is a new and revolutionary technology,” said Hap Klopp. “It has the potential to solve numerous problems associated with impact injuries in sports and in daily life, which is something that the market today is clamoring for.”

isoBLOX® is a patented technology that provides substantial impact protection, without compromising flexibility or adding bulk. Its bio-mechanical design allows for significant air flow and moisture transport, while providing the wearer with breathability and moisture-wicking benefits. Pinwrest Development Group, LLC (“Pinwrest”), a majority-owned subsidiary of 4LC, introduced the isoBLOX® impact protection technology at the professional level in 2014 in a protective cap for pitchers.

Pinwrest has been working on additional product applications in baseball, soccer, football, and other sports that require protective equipment, as well as exploring other opportunities that involve industrial, aerospace, law enforcement and military applications.

4Licensing Corporation is a licensing and distribution company specializing in new technologies, sports-oriented and youth markets, and specialty brands. Through its subsidiaries, 4LC has begun to forge new business relationships in the sports licensing industry, and in developing private label goods to be sold at retail or directly to consumers. 4LC licenses the merchandising rights to product concepts and properties, builds brands through licensing, and develops ideas and concepts for licensing.
