Sonomax International Licensee Progress Report - National and multinational
corporations continue to adopt SonoCustom

MONTREAL, April 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Sonomax Technologies Inc. (SHH: TSX Venture) announces that a progress report from its international licensees indicates that a number of highly recognizable national and multinational corporations, as well as militaries and first responders, in the European Community, Africa, and Australia, have adopted Sonomax's custom expansion technology, fitting their noise-exposed workers with Sonomax's Pro-Fit V3 model. This is seen by the licensees as technology validation as well as being a building block toward high-volume shipment of next generation V4 self-fit technology. The sales of V3 HPD's are currently limited mainly by the constraint of implementation by technicians, a limitation which will be eliminated by the self-fit feature of the V4.

Said Nick Laperle, Sonomax's President & CEO, "We are enormously gratified that after a long, hard, battle, our technology is being adopted and hearing loss is finally being understood to be what it is - the #1 occupational disease, deserving of personal protective equipment to combat its costly effects, both in human and monetary terms. We consider our licensees' customers to be at the forefront of enlightened best-practices enterprises, and are proud that the following international customers are agreeable to letting their names be known as satisfied Sonomax customers.
