LifeApps Digital Media Inc., an emerging growth company and designer of applications ("apps"), new media, products and next-generation social networks for sports, health, fitness and entertainment enthusiasts, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Sports One Group and Performance Gear (“Sports One Group”), a wholesale supplier to the promotional products industry providing athletic apparel, uniforms and decorating services.

Effective as of April 1, 2013, LifeApps has acquired certain assets of Sports One Group, including a supplier base of leading fitness apparel designers and over 1,300 valued and consistent customers.

“We believe this is a great acquisition for LifeApps and a step towards expanding our physical and digital products across our sports, health and fitness based communities,” said Robert Gayman, CEO of Life Apps.

“Through this new digital platform, we can now service the promotional and sports industries, the sporting goods sector and individual health enthusiasts with our diverse family of e-commerce and m-commerce fitness products. We are confident that the LifeApps team will be able to enhance and improve the current e-commerce business of Sports One Group and build an m-commerce solution for the business in the near future. In addition, the acquisition of Sports One Group will provide an immediate revenue stream to the Company.”

“We see this as a great opportunity to drive increased revenue for LifeApps,” said Zoë Sophos, newly appointed Director of Sports One Group. “We look forward to continuing the strong performance and growth of Sports One and its unique business model.”

The promotional products industry is a large, quickly expanding industry with annual revenue of nearly $18 billion. Sports One Group caters to a niche market, focused on supplying sports teams with high quality, personalized athletic apparel. Sports One has a large, national, well-defined customer base with strong year-over-year sales growth and strong buying power, and offers unique value-added services and expertise.

We believe Sports One Group is in a unique position to offer value added service and custom order creation to sport-specific buyers. Sports One Group is a respected member of the leading promotional apparel trade organizations, including Advertising Specialty Institute and Promotional Products Association International.
