(“Mission Ready” or “MRSI” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Protect The Force, Inc. (“Protect The Force” or “PTF”), in participation with its clients, was successful in capturing over $10M in sales, or ~$450K in revenue to PTF, in the last two months of the U.S. Federal Government budget year ending September 30, 2014.
This continues to demonstrate the ability of PTF to guide clients products through the US Federal Government’s procurement departments.

Respiratory and chemical protective clothing products sold into the Homeland Security Agency and military first responder markets accounted for the majority of the sales volume. PTF is on track to exceed annual sales of $60 million in 2014.
