12 Europe A.G. Recruits Manor A.G. and Demonstrates the Potential that Europe Represents for 12 ReTech’s Omni-Channel Retail Technology

Carson City, NV & Hong Kong, Nov. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary 12 Europe A.G. has signed the giant Swiss department store retailer Manor, A.G. as a pilot customer for the Company's proprietary and licensed Omni-Channel 12 Technology Suite.

The agreement with Manor A.G. begins with a pilot project to install the 12 Technology Suite at one of its flagship department stores in German-speaking Switzerland. When the Company's products demonstrate a sales lift as well as expense and cost improvements to Manor A.G., the Company will look to install the 12 Technology Suite throughout their stores.

Manor A.G. is the largest department store chain in Switzerland. They have over 60 locations and employ more than 10,000 personnel.  It is estimated that they hold a larger than 60% market share for department store retail sales in Switzerland.

Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech's CEO, commented, “Manor is interested in deploying several pieces of our 12 Technology Suite. First is the 12 Display that would be used inside of the Manor property to advertise products and offers that Manor wants to put in front of their customers. Second is the 12 Window, which would be used to entice shoppers into the Manor department stores. Third is the 12 Mirror with the associated 12 Mobile-App, which shoppers would use to get information about products that they are interested in and share their experience with their social media networks.”

Stefan Guggisberg, 12 Europe A.G.'s CEO, stated, "Generating incremental in-store traffic and winning additional sales is of paramount importance to all retailers around the globe, and Manor A.G. is no exception. We are proud of the fact they have recognized that 12 ReTech has the technology and expertise to assist them to reach these important goals.”

Mr. Ponzetta added, “The financial details of the arrangement regarding the adoption of the 12 Technology Suite by Manor A.G. has not been disclosed for competitive reasons, although I can disclose that we are being paid for our equipment, licensing and integration efforts. We look forward to our future relationship with Manor A.G. and will work towards our expansion into additional stores.”
