ST. PAUL, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/13/07 -- GelStat Corporation (PINKSHEETS: GSAC), a consumer healthcare company primarily focused on the development and marketing of over-the-counter (OTC) products for the safe and effective treatment of pain and inflammation, announces that it has signed a distribution and fulfillment agreement with a nationally recognized direct-to-consumer healthcare products company and industry veteran.
Jim LaFlamme, the Company's Chairman of the Board of Directors stated, "This agreement is another major step towards increasing the Company's brand recognition and revenue streams while minimizing monthly expenses." Mr. LaFlamme also said, "With this agreement in place, the Company is one step away from completing Phase I of its turnaround and business development strategy."
Tom DeSantis, the President of U.S. Marketing commented, "When our firm was engaged in November of 2006 to assist the Company's Board of Directors in a restructuring plan we had three main initiatives including significantly reduce cash outflows, increase operational efficiencies and open up new sales channels. In just a few months we have reduced monthly expenses by approximately 65% and consolidated operations, as well as established direct-to-consumer revenue channels including catalog and direct response television. The announcement today is another major milestone."
This agreement significantly ads to the Company's marketing and advertising talent, while providing a solid ordering and fulfillment infrastructure. Furthermore, it brings to GelStat highly accomplished executives and consultants in many areas including internet marketing and advertising, television advertising and print advertising. This team has founded or assisted in startup efforts which resulted in sales in excess of $100 million.
ABOUT GELSTAT CORPORATION
GelStat Corporation is dedicated to providing safe and effective over-the-counter (OTC) treatments for pain and inflammation. GelStat's first product, GelStat Migraine, is sold nationwide through retail chain stores, independent retailers and pharmacies, and direct to consumer channels. GelStat Migraine is a sublingually (under the tongue) administered OTC medication for acute relief from the pain and associated symptoms of migraine. Over 90 percent of the 30 million Americans with migraine use OTC headache remedies, generally aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Americans spend $2.6 billion each year on 600 million units of such products, although they are believed to be effective for only about 25 percent of those with moderate to severe migraine.
