Mark Cuban Invests in the Best Seat in the House - the Brondell Swash(TM) Proven Entrepreneur Invests in Luxury Toilet Developer and Joins Advisory

Board



    SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Brondell Inc., developer of the
 Swash(TM), a revolutionary high-tech toilet seat, announced it has secured
 $1.3 million of Series A financing from a group of investors including
 technology visionary Mark Cuban. Cuban joins Brondell's advisory board along
 with packaged-goods veteran Todd Schmidt and high-tech marketing veteran Scott
 Epstein. Brondell will use the investment to finalize the development of new
 products, and expand distribution and marketing to capture additional
 marketshare in the fast growing U.S. luxury bathroom products category.
     Brondell introduced the Swash(TM) in January 2005 to target the luxury
 bathroom products market and to help create a better bathroom experience for
 American consumers. The Swash is a high-tech toilet seat that provides all of
 the hygienic benefits of a traditional bidet, but it is installed on existing
 residential toilets. The Swash utilizes two retractable wands to provide a
 filtered posterior and feminine warm water wash and has a heated seat and all
 functions operate at the push of a button. The Swash 600 model even has a warm
 air dryer and wireless remote control. Focused exclusively on the U.S. market
 to date, the company has seen record growth, experiencing average quarter over
 quarter revenue growth of nearly 50% in 2005.
     "I have always been interested in innovative and cutting edge-technologies
 coupled with a large market opportunity," said Mark Cuban, "Brondell is a
 prime example. The team has developed an innovative approach that targets a
 massive market which has seen little innovation in the last 250 years. It's an
 exciting time for Brondell."
     "As the American consumer's desire for a more comfortable and healthier
 lifestyle grows, so does the demand for luxury bathroom products like the
 Swash," said Scott Pinizzotto, CEO of Brondell. "This investment is exciting
 for us because it validates our market opportunity, provides the capital to
 develop products that will continue to improve the bathroom experience, and
 gives us access to a strong group of advisors."
     Brondell's flagship products, the Swash 400(TM) and Swash 600(TM), are
 available at HomeDepot.com, LinensNThings.com, EXPO design centers, select
 Bed, Bath & Beyond stores and online at www.brondell.com. The Swash 400 and
 Swash 600 retail for $429 and $549, respectively.
