FOMO CORP. AND AGILE TECHNOLOGIES PROVIDE COVID-19 SAFETY SERVICES FOR FLOTUS’ VISIT TO NAVAJO NATION

Chicago IL, April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (https://www.fomoworldwide.com/ – US OTC: ETFM) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Purge Virus LLC (https://purgevirus.com/) and its strategic partner AGILE Technologies Group, LLC (https://www.4AGILEtech.com/) are collaborating to provide COVID-19 safety services for First Lady Dr. Jill Biden’s scheduled visit to the Navajo Tribal Park and Veterans Memorial in Window Rock, Arizona April 22-23, 2021 (“FLOTUS”). The Navajo Nation Council Spring Session is a weeklong legislative session that coincides with the First Lady’s visit.

AGILE’s Managing Partner, Rod Martin, led AGILE in providing rapid Antigen and Antibody COVID-19 testing with results in just 10 minutes for the Navajo Nation in 2020. AGILE brought in Purge Virus to initially provide portable air disinfection devices, and the scope of the services expanded dramatically to include added services by AGILE as well as comprehensive disinfection by Purge Virus in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems across ten buildings at Window Rock. At the upcoming event, AGILE was also selected to provide COVID-19 safety services for the First Lady and her staff for their visit to Navajo Nation. The combined services to date have included COVID-19 detection, protection, prevention, and indoor air quality (“IAQ”) improvement through ultraviolet and bipolar ionization.

To date the COVID-19 complete safety solution for Navajo Nation has included:

1. Rapid antigen and antibody testing,
2. Air purification through portable and in-duct disinfection,

3. Highest protective quality N95 masks,
4. Bipolar ionization necklaces for personal protection,

5. Wrist-worn devices for screening blood oxygen level, body temperature and heart rate that give an alert with any downturn in these health indicators.

Rod Martin, Managing Partner of AGILE, said, “Our ongoing work with Navajo Nation has set new standards for life safety. Pearline Kirk, Controller for the Navajo Nation has stated that employees reported feeling safer at work than at home. Additionally, the Office of Controller building had been a source of undetermined complaints of sickness that were no longer reported after the installation of the HVAC-based air purification systems. We have worked hard to earn the confidence of the Navajo Nation and have been asked to provide a COVID-19 safety plan for the legislative session where AGILE’s medical team administered Rapid COVID-19 tests, set up air purification devices throughout the Council Building, provided N95 masks and distributed individually worn protective devices. We were not initially aware of the visit by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and it is an honor to know that the team adds to the overall safety plan for her visit. This is an example of the effectiveness of the advanced protocols available today to detect and reduce the threat of COVID-19, variants, and related impacts.”

Charlie Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus said, “We are honored that First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is visiting Window Rock. The visit just happens to coincide with Earth Day, which is April 22 every year, which is symbolic. We see that the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic is a wake-up call for overall sustainability, with a new focus on safe and also energy efficient buildings through our FOMO ecosystem of clean building solutions.”

Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez tweeted “The Biden-Harris Administration has been a key partner in our response to COVID-19 which includes the #AmericanRescuePlan. We are looking forward to hosting the First Lady and her team. For most of the pandemic, the Navajo Nation has been the hardest hit per capita place in America.”

Nez says they plan to take her to a vaccination clinic on April 23 and stress that they have now gone seven straight days without a COVID-19 death.

Highlights on the indoor air quality for Navajo Nation:

Portable Disinfection Cylinders: The devices have a 12-inch diameter, and they are 33.5 inches tall. They include four speeds with variable cubic feet per minute (CFM) and cover up to 1,600 ft². The advanced disinfection includes: Ultrafine Particulate HEPA-Rx Filter, Activated Carbon Filter, Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV-C) Bulbs,Hydroxyl Radical Reactivity Chamber, and Revitalizing Negative Ion Chamber. Each device also includes auto functionality as well as air quality sensors. For more details see the cylinder device toward the bottom of this page: www.purgevirus.com/portable-devices

HVAC Bipolar Ionization Disinfection: Prior to the technology production and on-site installation, Purge Virus conducted a comprehensive site visit to review the existing HVAC equipment. The key for successful disinfection is to align the right technology to each facility. Per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines, Purge Virus used multiple bipolar ionization devices in the air handling units (AHUs) that meet the Underwriter Laboratories (UL 867 and UL 2998) with zero ozone production. This advanced system is some of the only technology in the world that meets the dual criteria. Ionization inactivates the proteins that form the “spikes” on the COVID-19 acellular microorganisms. The result is indoor air quality (“IAQ”) that is cleaner than outdoor air and protects humans from infection by COVID-19.

Bipolar Ionization Necklaces: Bipolar ionization damages the surface structure of the coronavirus at the molecular level and results in an inability of the virus to cause infection. The devices are worn around the neck and attach to expelled breath droplets and dust particles that can transport viruses, enlarging them so they are more easily caught in filters. It is an active process that provides continuous disinfection.

Watch-Like Wearables: This wrist worn device monitors temperature, heart rate and blood oxygen level and provides the data to a secure, smartphone app that provides an alert if the individual has abnormal deviations with these health indicators and signs of COVID-19 infection. It is part of a daily screening process that is part of the overall safety plan.

Purge Virus Files Disinfection Patent with Full Claims and Pending Status on April 2, 2021

Conshohocken, PA, April 06, 2021 – Purge Virus, LLC (https://purgevirus.com/) a wholly owned subsidiary of FOMO CORP. (https://www.fomoworldwide.com/ – US OTC: ETFM) has recently filed its full claims US Utility Patent Application entitled “UV‑C GERMICIDAL LED STRIP KITS FOR HVAC DUCTS” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Earlier this year, Purge Virus engaged the intellectual property law firm Vos-IP, LLC (https://vos-ip.com/) to support the filing, given their prior experience with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) patents. Purge Virus’ patent centers on advanced ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), which is part of the recent March 23, 2021 CDC guidance for COVID-19 mitigation.

The following information is associated with the patent filing:

US Application No.: 17/301,442

Filing Date: April 2, 2021

Title: UV‑C GERMICIDAL LED STRIP KITS FOR HVAC DUCTS

Applicant: Purge Virus LLC

Priority: US provisional 63/004,001, filed April 2, 2020

Purge Virus CEO Charlie Szoradi said, “We had a terrific head start last year with the date stamp of April 2, 2020 when we filed the provisional patent just weeks after the COVID-19 ‘shut down’ by governors across the US We researched and chose Vos-IP for our legal support based on their prior HVAC experience. Kyle and his team have been rigorous and impressive with all of their insight, rounds of reviews, and refinements for the final submission to meet the USPTO deadline that was 12 months following the initial provisional patent submission.”

Kyle Vos Strache, Managing Partner at Vos-IP, LLC said, “Charlie really got out in front of in-duct ultraviolet germicidal irradiation last spring, and he and his team were very helpful in delivering the testing data and the support figures that are a key part of the patent. We expect indoor air quality to be part of a new set of standards for buildings. The germicidal capabilities of ultraviolet (UV-C) through light-emitting diode (LED) technology is an excellent way to provide safer environments as well as the energy savings that is included in the Purge Virus patent.”

Timely for Federal Funding:

The recent $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill and the expected $2 trillion Infrastructure/Jobs Bill include major funding to help reopen schools as well as improve affordable housing, airports, train stations and many other types of buildings. Since improved indoor air quality (IAQ) can come through ultraviolet irradiation devices and Purge Virus’ other disinfection technologies such as bipolar ionization, Purge Virus is well positioned to support the goals of the Biden Administration and the private sector. As school K-12 superintendents, healthcare administrators, and business owners allocate resources from the federal funding, Purge Virus disinfection capabilities also reduces a building owner’s operating costs, which in turn creates a new generation of safe and efficient buildings.

Alignment with CDC Guidance:

In their most recent March 23, 2021 guidance updates, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) specifically references ultraviolet germicidal irradiation: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/ventilation.html: “Consider using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) as a supplemental treatment to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, especially if options for increasing room ventilation and filtration are limited. Upper-room UVGI systems can be used to provide air cleaning within occupied spaces, and in-duct UVGI systems can help enhance air cleaning inside central ventilation systems.”

Added Patent Information:

No. of Pages: 39

No. of Figures: 8

No. of Claims: 20

The extensive pages of the patent include multiple testing matrix tables with data from research into lens configurations that optimize light output and irradiation; the figures include both in-duct and plenum placement locations at air handling units; the claims include the integration of direct current (DC) power sources comprising multiple channels to power multiple LED devices in different areas of the HVAC system for installation labor savings and energy savings. Given that the USPTO grants twenty years of protection for patents, Purge Virus has positioned itself for the short-term benefits within the federal funding and the long-term benefits beyond COVID-19, based on expected new standards for indoor air quality.

About Vos-IP:

The Vos-IP team has expertise working with Fortune 500 clients, mid-sized clients, start-up companies, and entrepreneurs to protect their valuable IP, specifically with patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Vos-IP’s founder and Managing Partner, Kyle Vos Strache, is passionate about the protection of patent rights, spanning from medical devices, pharmaceutical products, software (SaaS), and business methods to mechanical inventions.

  • State Legislature and local municipal official COVID-19 testing event in an area with unconfirmed, high positivity rate:
    • With a two-day notice, AGILE tested 100 people, identified 20 with active COVID-19 infection and was able to advise them to isolate to protect families, co-workers, and others.
  • Sound Stage for a Christmas Show with a Grammy award winning entertainer:
    • The entire production had been shut down twice for five days. AGILE assumed the COVID-19 safety scope of work and empowered the production team to continue production and filming to complete the television show with no additional breakages in production by identifying all infected actors, dancers, production staff, musicians, and other.
  • Chicago CSO Sports Multiplex (80,000 square foot, multi-use facility):
    • AGILE provided testing and air purification for over 500 basketball tournaments’ participants, volleyball and other sports skills camps and for individual personal trainers and all their clients.
  • AGILE is modifying its website, sales/marketing materials and other information to give increased exposure to the air purification solutions offered by PV including sales directly from the PV website as many inquiries have been received about individual and business sales of the PV portable air purification systems.

The combined work of AGILE and PV has helped to slow and stop potential super-spreader events, and the ongoing work is setting a new precedent for testing, COVID-19 screening and indoor air safety.

“We see tremendous potential in working with Purge Virus on accounts in the U.S. and around the world, given the number of areas that are seeing surges in COVID-19 and the demand for rapid testing and indoor air disinfection,” said Roderick A. Martin, Chief Managing Partner, AGILE Technologies Group, LLC.

“AGILE expands the number of potential customers for our offerings with the addition of rapid testing, technology-based screening and contact tracing and reinforces our mission to provide a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for businesses and individuals who seek protection from COVID-19 and future viruses. Our team has been impressed with AGILE’s ability to engage clients that see the value of their integrated solution that provides rapid-testing, contact tracing, and our disinfection technologies,” said Charles Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus, LLC.

Purge Virus, LLC Signs Joint Venture with Elk’s Pride Pictures, LLC for Indoor Air Quality Episodic Media and Documentary Film Production.

Berwyn, PA, January 19, 2021 – Purge Virus, LLC (https://purgevirus.com/) a wholly owned subsidiary of FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM), announces that it has signed a Joint Venture with Elk’s Pride Pictures (https://www.elkspridepictures.com/) to fast-track the creation of episodic/documentary film content promoting the next-generation in indoor air quality technology. All content will reside on a forthcoming proprietary website and be disseminated across social media and streaming platforms. As the episodic content is produced and shared, production will run concurrently on the documentary project, aggregating the most relevant topical elements into a cohesive narrative. The goal of the joint venture is building awareness, grass roots to mainstream, around the available technologies that can immediately help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and create healthier buildings in which to live, work and breathe, beyond the current pandemic. The final documentary film will be distributed online in full and submitted to relevant documentary film festivals.

Matthew Dunehoo, Executive Producer at Elk’s Pride Pictures, LLC said: “My interest in PV began as a financial investment.  But after researching Charlie’s history with sustainability and gaining a new appreciation for the role that germicidal air and surface disinfection can and should play in renewing our economy and facilitating our essential return to shared indoor spaces, I proposed this episodic media and documentary film joint venture. Our team feels that there is a very compelling story worth sharing here, around the science and sociological impact of disinfection technology to help us transcend the current health crisis while proactively aiding in the prevention of future outbreaks. We hope to illuminate the immediate opportunities to upgrade the standards for indoor air quality, potentially alleviating the unnecessary suffering and multi-billion-dollar annual healthcare costs incurred from a number of respiratory illnesses generated by outdated air circulation/disinfection methods currently used in our residential and commercial spaces.  By launching this project, we’re seeking to empower an audience that is best reached through clear and candid storytelling via episodic film and video content.”

“Momentum towards increasing the safety and health standards of buildings and shared spaces takes knowledge of the right technology shared over the right medium of communications.” said Charlie Szoradi, CEO, Purge Virus, LLC.  “We increasingly live in a soundbite world of video content; many people prefer to watch rather than read. Matthew and his production team have the experience and vision to communicate the story of the potential in the available technology, thus aiding in increasing awareness and adoption. In addition, this Joint Venture is especially timely given the recent COVID Relief Bill, approved by Congress and signed by President Trump, which will provide critical resources to improve indoor air quality: https://www.masslive.com/coronavirus/2020/12/covid-relief-deal-includes-billions-for-schools-to-improve-ventilation-address-learning-loss-during-the-pandemic.html”. With the Biden Administration’s commitment to reducing the spread of COVID-19, additional funding may be forthcoming to improve indoor air quality.”

FOMO CORP. ANNOUNCES E-COMMERCE AGREEMENT BETWEEN PURGE VIRUS, LLC AND ALIBABA

PURGE VIRUS PRODUCTS TO BE OFFERED WITHIN ALIBABA’S B2B GLOBAL GOLD SUPPLIER PROGRAM

Chicago, IL, Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Purge Virus, LLC (“PV”; https://purgevirus.com/), has met the necessary business verification criteria and has been approved by Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NASDAQ: BABA; “Alibaba”; https://www.alibaba.com/) for its Global Gold Supplier Program effective November 30, 2020. This approval provides a significantly expanded distribution platform for Purge Virus. It is expected that PV disinfection technology products will be available on the Alibaba platform globally on or before January 1, 2021. Purge Virus products will be incorporated online with volume-tiered pricing to give business owners the ease of purchasing products by matching their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to the most appropriate disinfection technology.

Alibaba is the world’s largest retailer and e-commerce company with a market capitalization of more than $750 billion and over 10 million active buyers in their Business to Business (B2B) Program. Alibaba is uniquely positioned to foster major portfolio accounts for Purge Virus that involve hotel and restaurant chains, among large operators in other economic sectors such as schools, hospitals, municipal buildings, medical facilities, commercial buildings (malls, offices, etc.), airports, and other verticals.

The need for COVID-19 disinfection across the hospitality industry sparked this engagement between Purge Virus and Alibaba. According the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA), there are over 5 million hotel rooms in the United States, and, as of 2018, 16.97 million hotel rooms worldwide according to Statista. Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (PTAC) units are ubiquitous across the hospitality industry. A PTAC unit is a type of self-contained heating and air conditioning system commonly found in hotels and many other buildings. Purge Virus does not manufacture PTACs but can improve PTACs by retrofitting them to disinfect indoor air. Customers may also buy Purge Virus disinfection devices and insert them into the PTAC units themselves. More info may be found here: https://purgevirus.com/ptac-disinfection/.

PTAC unit retrofit solutions are ideal for hotels and motels, senior housing facilities, and hospitals that face the most acute challenges for COVID-19. The average cost of equipment and installation per room is $550 – $650. Purge Virus also offers zero upfront cost financing over 3-5 years. The monthly cost can be as low as $10 per month per room. 

“We are so pleased to engage with Alibaba to increase the exposure of disinfection technologies in the U.S. and around the world. Alibaba’s platform also gives us the ability to highlight key advantages of our solutions. As an example, in addition to helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19, influenza and other pathogens, Purge Virus technology offerings include odor removal, which is an added feature to reduce tobacco and cannabis odors in hotel and motel rooms and in other environments,” said Charlie Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus.

In Other Purge Virus News:

In order to proactively support forthcoming COVID-19 vaccines, Purge Virus has developed and launched its Vaccine Center (https://purgevirus.com/vaccine-center/).

FOMO CORP. ANNOUNCES PURGE VIRUS JOINS SUSTAINABLE TECH ALLIANCE AND LAUNCHES COVID-19 CLEAN-AIR RENTAL PROGRAM

Chicago, IL, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Purge Virus, LLC (https://purgevirus.com) has joined the Leadership Council of the Sustainable Tech Alliance (https://sustainabletechalliance.com). The engagement reinforces Purge Virus’ leadership role in COVID-19 disinfection though webinars, training, and advanced indoor air quality devices. Purge Virus is well positioned to support the private sector and President-elect Biden’s Plan to upgrade four million buildings (https://joebiden.com/clean-energy).

The majority of the Purge Virus disinfection devices are “Made in USA” to “Buy American Act” (BAA) Compliance, meaning that they are in line with President Trump’s initiative to promote American manufacturing. The next two months, before the January 20, 2021 inauguration, are critical for indoor air disinfection, given that people spend more time indoors over winter months than in other seasons. Beyond COVID-19, Purge Virus technologies inactivate influenza and other pathogens, which can further help save lives and reduce the stress on hospitals and healthcare professionals across the U.S. this winter.

Purge Virus devices provide energy savings in addition to disinfection when correctly installed at heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) air handling units (AHUs). Associated energy savings translate directly to operating cost reduction, which is key for business survival. A recent Sustainable Tech Alliance (STA) webinar on 11/12/2020 showcased Purge Virus as a critical solutions provider to save energy and eradicate COVID-19. To see the 48-page Webinar PDF, the recording, and the supporting data visit here: https://sustainabletechalliance.com/resources/

Purge Virus has a substantial sales pipeline of over 70 leads, including non-residential property owners and managers such as Related Properties Corporation, an affiliate of Related Companies based in New York City, that already deployed PV technology at a 180,000 square foot property in Connecticut; a company that used PV’s air cleaning solutions to protect guests at high-net worth customer’s private event; and small- and medium-size businesses including dental offices and restaurants that have deployed PV’s air cleaning solutions to protect their clients under the Purge Virus “Clean Air!” national branding campaign.

Purge Virus Clean-Air Rental Program (CARP): Today, Purge Virus is formally launching a rental program designed to make it fast and easy for people to use advanced disinfection technology to help reduce the risk of potential super-spreader events. Rentals are less expensive than purchasing the technology, and the ease of plugging them into standard wall outlets is more convenient than wiring and integrating with HVAC ducts. Sample portable devices can be found at https://purgevirus.com/portable-devices. PV has strategic relationships with multiple financing companies that have over $300 million available to facilitate this opportunity and drive revenues.

“Our Purge Virus team hopes that all Americans can agree that cleaning indoor air, saving money, and creating new jobs are bi-partisan wins for our country. Many people face the challenges of unemployment or under employment. We are pleased to offer education, training, and technology solutions to help activate the opportunities for a safer and more energy independent country,” said Charles Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus, LLC.

Said Vik Grover, CEO of FOMO CORP.: “We believe Purge Virus can become a one-stop shop for clean building solutions that helps solve the COVID-19 pandemic and mitigate future viruses. I anticipate market acceptance of their solutions and applaud Charlie’s team’s efforts to solve this pressing issue for the world.”

Related Properties Corporation Reduces the Spread of COVID-19 at 1700 East Putnam Ave, Old Greenwich, CT with Ultraviolet Technology from Purge Virus

Berwyn, PA, October 26, 2020 –Purge Virus, LLC (https://purgevirus.com/) announces today the activation of ultraviolet technology for the flagship multi-tenant office building at 1700 East Putnam Avenue in Old Greenwich, Connecticut (https://www.1700eastputnam.com/). The large 180,000 square foot property is owned and managed by Related Properties Corporation, an affiliate of Related Companies based in New York City. The germicidal disinfection technology has the dual advantage of saving energy and reducing maintenance costs, since the installations are within the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The placements are between the coils and fans at the nine (9) Air Handling Units (AHUs).

In addition to inactivating pathogens such as COVID-19, the 253.7 nanometer wavelength Ultraviolet C (UVC) kills mildew and other biomatter on the AHU coils to increase efficiency and save added money by reducing the need for regular cleaning. The technology is made in the USA with Buy American Act (BAA) Compliance and may set the “new normal” for clean air in private sector and US government buildings across America and around the world. Beyond COVID-19, clean air has health advantages by reducing the adverse impact of future pathogens and influenza that contribute to respiratory illness and the escalating cost of healthcare.

“We are pleased to have the state-of-the-art disinfection technology from Purge Virus. We chose to conduct the installation ourselves. The installation was straightforward, and we found the equipment to be manufactured to a high standard.  Now our tenants at 1700 East Putnam Ave will benefit from enhanced air purification to address the immediate COVID-19 plight and for years to come,” said Paul Dumont, President – Related Properties Corporation.

“We applaud the team at Related Properties for leading by example with the advanced building-wide disinfection system. 1700 E Putnam may be one of the largest commercial office buildings in America to adopt HVAC clean-air technology, and we expect that others will follow their lead. I would also like to commend the development team who worked diligently through COVID-19 to launch this project,” said Charles Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus, LLC.

Highlights on the Disinfection: At 1700 E Putnam, the Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM), for the nine different AHUs, ranges from 6,000 to 8,300. The plenum sizes are the same for each AHU at of 71.5” x 26” with air velocity ranging from 465 to 643. The irradiation calculations are based on an average 7,300 CFM and air velocity of 565 linear feet per minute. The air velocity is a key driver in the irradiation solution, because ultraviolet dosage is determined by time, intensity, and distance. The air velocity is the factor of time for the ultraviolet to inactivate the virus microorganisms and prevent replication. The average dose for each AHU is 6,600 microwatt-seconds per square centimeter (µW-sec/cm2), which is also expressed as6.6 millijoules per square centimeter (mJ/cm2). The wavelength of the ultraviolet C (UV-C) is 253.7 nanometers (nm) and the lamp life within the devices is 17,000 hours. Each AHU has 30” of depth where the ultraviolet light floods the chambers as the “Purge Zone.” The four (4) ultraviolet lamps are 151 Watts each, 5/8” in diameter, and 60” in length to fit within the 71.5” interior span of the respective AHUs. This type of irradiation analysis and custom configuration for each facility is one of the service advantages of working with Purge Virus.

The Results: The configuration and ultraviolet dosage provide 2-3 log pathogen reduction, which is between 99% and 99.9% single pass inactivation of the virus. The current available data on COVID-19 is a dosage of 5,000 µW-sec/cm2 for that same level of disinfection, and this system exceeds it with a dosage of 6,600 µW-sec/cm2. The result is continuous, around the clock germicidal disinfection. With the technology integrated into the HVAC system, the solution is the least disruptive for tenants at this groundbreaking property.

Purge Virus Launches National Branding Initiative, Targets Substantial Dental Care Industry

Chicago, IL, Aug. 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM) is pleased to announce that Purge Virus LLC (“PV”) – which is under a LOI to merge with FOMO this Fall – is generating promising traction by engaging clients such as a leading Philadelphia-based dental care provider in order to implement a national branding initiative. Since the COVID-19 outbreak in the US, this particular dental care provider was the first of what have now been eight dental practices that have embraced PV’s virus disinfection technology. As appropriate approvals are obtained from these customers, they will be named in future news releases and/or on the PV website.

“Patient comfort and safety are key in our dental practice. As soon as we learned about the Purge Virus technology, we saw the value. The added bonus of having branding on the door with a Purge Virus static-cling sticker lets our patients know how much we care about their safety as they come into our office,” said the Philadelphia practice owner. Purge Virus’ website includes comprehensive information on technologies that disinfect air and specialized pages that identify the most appropriate technology for different facilities and property types. For dental care facilities go to https://purgevirus.com/dental-care/.

IBISWorld estimates that there are 189,040 dental office establishments in the United States. FOMO and Purge Virus see this as a top priority given that COVID-19 disinfection needs are so acute for both dentists and patients who are in close proximity. Accounts that have embraced the PV solution set spend typically between $1,000 – $6,000. With an average spend of $3,000 – $3,500 per dental practice, potential annual domestic dental disinfection revenue could exceed a half billion dollars, a substantial total addressable market (“TAM”).

“We applaud the leadership of our dental customers as they help protect their patients and staff with advanced ultraviolet (UV-C) devices for air disinfection. Our branding, which they have embraced, starts with something as simple as our five-inch Purge Virus “Clean Air!” door sticker.” On doors, credit card and accessibility wheelchair stickers are ubiquitous as a means to help people identify the right facility for them. Our roll-out of door stickers and online branding of disinfection technology is the spear to drive awareness of clean zones that reduce the spread of COVID-19,” said Charlie Szoradi, founder of Purge Virus.

DISCLOSURE STATEMENT and full Press Release

FOMO CORP. Agrees to Buy Purge Virus

Chicago, IL, Aug. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM) is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) to acquire Purge Virus (www.purgevirus.com), a provider of COVID-19 disinfection technology, supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) products/services.

Purge Virus brings many benefits to ETFM including:

  • A total solutions package to allow enterprises to disinfect their premises from COVID-19 and future infectious diseases the world may encounter, which is estimated to be a multi-billion-dollar market opportunity;
  • Ultraviolet lighting solutions, bipolar ionization, and photoplasma, plus PPE products/sales to assist clients in protecting their premises and clients from virus proliferation, which is an urgent global need;
  • A vibrant existing business which will generate significant revenues and profits;
  • Access to a federal bidding schedule with up to three billion square feet of federal real estate with substantial growth potential above and beyond that level,
  • Relationships with energy management providers that allows growth in the “network in the ceiling” above and beyond the initial COVID-19 opportunity, and;
  • Over $300 million in third-party equipment financing relationships so that business owners and institutional accounts have zero upfront cost options, with low monthly payments, subject to credit approval.

As consideration, FOMO will issue owners of PV 1.6MM Series B Preferred Shares subject to adjustment, which equates to 1.6BN common shares. PV will also generate additional equity based on an earn-out.

On the corporate action front, FOMO CORP. has increased its share structure to accommodate the acquisition using preferred stock which will not dilute common shareholders directly. The Company has not approved nor intends to execute a reverse split in 2020.

Said Charlie Szoradi: “Our Purge Virus team is excited to take our advanced disinfection technology offerings public through FOMO, given the massive size of the total addressable market in the U.S. and around the world. To date the market has been fragmented and our one-stop shop approach is not only timely given COVID-19 but also foundational for many years as people and businesses seek safe indoor air and energy efficiency advantages that come with proper HVAC disinfection”.

Said Vik Grover, CEO: “We understand the ramifications of the pandemic and what is means to the world. Capitalizing PV is a step forward in the rebirth of our Company and is a positive for mankind. This is the right deal at the right time, and I see significant upside.”

Global PPE Market $84.7BN+ forecast. Additional funding is being sought to handle the potential ramp-up in business volume. Source: https://www.grandviewresearch.com/press-release/global-personal-protective-equipment-ppe-market
