ROSEVILLE, Calif., Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via InvestorWire -- InnerScope Hearing Technologies Inc. (OTC: INND) ("InnerScope"), an emerging and disruptive leader in the Direct-to-Consumer Hearing Technology space, is pleased to announce today it has entered into a Letter of Intent (the "LOI") to acquire 100% of the equity in Hearing Assist II LLC. ("HearingAssist"). The LOI was executed on Oct. 19, 2021, and currently, InnerScope and HearingAssist are working on the definitive agreement with the expected close date of Nov. 15, 2021 (the "Acquisition").

Founded in 2008, headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, HearingAssist has sold more than 500,000 hearing aids to nearly 400,000 customers via direct-to-consumer or through retail partners. HearingAssist was the first direct-to-consumer ("DTC") hearing aid company to use mass national television marketing to create a recognizable brand as America's #1 Affordable Hearing Brand. Since HearingAssist launched its acclaimed television spot (Hearing Assist Commercial - YouTube) in April 2018 on major national TV networks, it has generated more than $72 million of top-line revenue through July 2021. HearingAssist's products are currently displayed in over 757 Walmart’s in five states. In addition, HearingAssist has multiple vendor contracts signed and expansions currently underway with Walmart and other retailers. With the expected Over-the-Counter ("OTC") Law coming into effect in 2022, HearingAssist brand revenue projections are expected to exceed $150 million annualized by 2024.

HearingAssist has a full lineup of affordable, high-quality rechargeable hearing aids, a digital TV listener device, and various hearing aid accessories. In addition, HearingAssist also has an exclusive intellectual property right to distribute and the option to purchase two patents for its hearing aids.

InnerScope expects the Acquisition of HearingAssist, its management team, proven sales track record, strategic contracts with numerous major retailers, and the national marketing campaign to elevate InnerScope as the number one direct-to-consumer hearing aid sales company in the market. Moreover, with InnerScope's recent Acquisition of iHear Medical Inc. and its experienced research and development team, its FDA-Registered hearing aid manufacturing facility and its 40+ patents strengthen InnerScope's competitive edge over all other DTC / OTC companies. The Acquisition of HearingAssist and iHear Medical Inc. completes InnerScope's business model strategy by integrating "Big Box" wholesale/retail distribution partners with its innovated patented proprietary Hearing Products.

Floyd Kuriloff, Managing Member of Hearing Assist LLC, stated: "We are excited about our partnership with InnerScope that will allow us to execute on the growth opportunities in front of us. For over a decade, HearingAssist has brought multiple innovations to the hearing aid market, which have helped hundreds of thousands of consumers to hear with HearingAssist's high-quality, affordable hearing aids. We believe the Acquisition will afford HearingAssist to continue its mission by bringing more unique hearing innovations, better cost efficiencies in the manufacturing supply chain, and greater access to global markets. We also believe in combining our synergies will emerge the number one leader in the DTC / OTC hearing aid market."

Mr. Matthew Moore, President, and CEO of InnerScope went on to state: "InnerScope and its management team are excited about the Acquisition of HearingAssist. The Acquisition will leverage our combined expertise and resources to accelerate our business development to the next level. InnerScope's management team has strived to build a company that can compete with the "Big-Five" global manufactures, which control 98% of all hearing aids sold of the $10+ billion-dollar market. We believe that the Acquisitions of HearingAssist and iHear Medical Inc. has positioned InnerScope to bring innovative patentable hearing technology to market, which will directly compete with the "Big-Five" in market share. We also expect the Acquisition of HearingAssist from the strategic placement of the product display located inside 757 Walmart stores will generate immediate sales revenue for InnerScope."
