PERTH, AUSTRALIA and GREER, SC--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2016) - Alexium International Group Limited (Alexium) (ASX: AJX) (OTCQX: AXXIY) provides an update on the developments with the company's Global Distribution Network and to share next steps in supporting Alexium's sales networks with regional manufacturing and supply chain services.

Alexium's leadership team has specifically targeted sales organizations located in the immense Eurasian market, which provides great opportunity for the textile industry. After considerable research, Egypt and/or United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been identified as strategic locations for manufacturing, product distribution, and a regional sales office. Based on the company's analysis and projections, this investment will give Alexium the visibility and support infrastructure needed to maintain agility from Pakistan to Portugal.

Nicholas (Nick) Clark, CEO, has been working on Capitol Hill and with leaders from the Egyptian government to explore manufacturing, logistics, and professional service programs available to US based companies for expansion into the Egyptian market, which could provide cost efficiencies. Nick has made significant progress, and in concert with his efforts, the leadership team is reaching out to the UAE business community and government officials to explore that partnership.

Alexium is moving forward with an aggressive growth plan, and investments in the Eurasian market are critical to the company's long-term success. Alexium will continue to provide updates on the progress.
