Point Blank Solutions, Inc., a leader in the field of protective body armor, today announced that the Company is back in consideration for possible awards under the Army's Solicitation W91CRB-07-R-0079 (the “Solicitation”).

Following a hearing and discussions between the U.S. Army's contracting office and the United States Government Accountability Office (“GAO”), the U.S. Army decided to do additional testing and based on the results of the testing to reconsider its decision to eliminate Point Blank from further consideration for awards under the Solicitation. As a result, Point Blank withdrew its protests, the first of which was filed on September 5, 2008.
