This website contains a full scope of information about Koios to include its story, biographies of its management team, and an overview of ingredients used in Koios products.

VANCOUVER, Nov. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV; OTC: KBEVF) (the "Company" or "Koios") is pleased to announce that it has launched its new company website at http://koiosbeveragecorp.com, with new features that include an interactive Investor Relations section, as well as a state-of-the-art online shopping platform for purchasing Koios beverage and supplement products. In the Company's mid-2019 corporate update released on July 17, 2019, it described several of Koios' developments that are either completed or in progress, which included a revised website to be launched later in the year. The new website is presently online, with functionality that has been carefully selected and designed to better serve customers, investors, and the general public alike.
For clarity, this release will provide an overview of the new elements of the Koios website under the headings of Revisions and Additions to Design and Content, Investor Relations Section, and Koios Online Shop.
Revisions and Additions to Design and Content
The new Koios website is designed for viewing on both desktop and mobile Internet browsers, featuring a smooth "scroll" layout with subtle animations, in addition to prominent placements of the menu and search buttons, as well as links to Koios' social media presence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Dedicated pages have also been added to provide deeper insight into the history of Koios, its team, key ingredients of its products, among other aspects of Koios as a company and complemented by a page of frequently asked questions. As Koios continues to grow and gain market share, the Company has made it a priority to publicize this type of information on its website in response to rising curiosity from prospective and current customers and investors, as well as suppliers, retail partners, and industry players.
Investor Relations Section
To better serve existing and potential shareholders, Koios has added a detailed Investor Relations section to its website. Elements of this section include the Koios corporate presentation deck, an overview of the Company's executive team, an index of documents such as financial statements and regulatory filings, and a listing of press releases. Investor inquiries may also be submitted through a contact form in this section.
The previous Koios website had offered online purchasing options for Koios products, and the Company accumulated a database of more than 8,000 customers through this channel. Koios has enhanced the shopping experience with detailed, information-driven product listings, and a dynamic shopping cart experience powered by Shopify. At this time, KOIOS™ brand nootropic beverages and supplements are available for purchase on the online shop, as well as the recently introduced Fit Soda™ line of beverages. Additionally, Koios will now offer subscription options through its online shop as a convenience to customers, in which purchasers can have a pre-set order delivered to them every month at a discount off of the retail price. All subscriptions will be on a month-to-month basis with the option to cancel at any time.
Since the Company's new website launched in September, there has been an uptick of visitor traffic with 33,000 unique visits in the month of September. This has resulted in a significant increase of online sales in the period spanning September 12, 2019 through October 15, 2019 inclusive, in comparison to the entire month of August prior to the launch of the Company's new website. Koios anticipates that its new website and its online shop will continue to drive online sales and expand the Company's direct-to-consumer sales volume.
Chris Miller, Koios' Chief Executive Officer commented, "With our products now on the shelves of thousands of retail stores across the United States, we recognized the need to be at the top of our game with our web presence. With curious potential customers and investors searching for us online, it is very important for us to have readily-available and easy-to-find answers to their questions. To this end, we designed our new website to elegantly present relevant information to viewers on desktop and mobile browsers, and enrich our direct-to-consumer purchase options using an enhanced online shopping experience. With the recent launch of Fit Soda™, we believe that we made the right move to revamp our web presence now. This way, consumers who are new to Koios that look us up in response to promotions for our Fit Soda™ products will have access to all of the information that they're looking for. We feel this will be an important part of making a strong and lasting first impression for Koios as a leading brand of functional beverages."
