PARAMUS, N.J., May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inergetics, Inc. (OTCBB: NRTI), announces that the Company's Surgex nutritional product line was selected to be the nutritional supplement of the National Volleyball League (NVL).
Under our two year category exclusive agreement, Inergetics will provide its current and expanded nutritional supplement line to the NVL and its players. The NVL will host six major events this year starting May 19 in the infield of the Preakness Stakes. The #1 ranked beach volleyball team in the world and defending Gold Medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser will compete along with 2012 Olympians April Ross and newly announced Cover Girl Jenn Kessy. NBC has confirmed filming this high profile event where over 100,000 people will be in attendance.
Under this agreement players in the NVL will be incentivized to not only use the Surgex product line, but distribute it to other institutions and their global fan base on a direct marketing and sales platform basis.
Mark Mirken, CEO and Chairman of Inergetics, stated, "This is the first transaction of its kind where a professional sports league consisting of the world's greatest volleyball players engaged in such a financially reciprocal relationship. Our ability to develop relationships with the league's players, have them experience the product line's benefits firsthand and then engage directly in the marketing and sales of Surgex is a very valuable asset and the NVL will generate millions in revenues, during the contract term." He further stated, "Clearly, Beach Volleyball is one of the world's most demanding physical sports. It requires almost instantaneous recovery under the most stressful conditions. Our Surgex product line is exactly what their highly trained professional athletes want and need."
CEO and founder Albert "AL-B" Hannemann states, "I am excited about this new partnership that really gives our players an opportunity to be successful and generate revenue for themselves with a truly great product. I have been taking the product for months and am a believer in what Inergetics has created. Our sport requires serious recovery and this is the answer for the professional volleyball athlete to the weekend warrior. We look forward to a long term mutually beneficial partnership and are thankful for this opportunity."
