LENEXA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 -- Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced a one-year extension of its statewide contract with the State of Michigan. The Michigan State Administrative Board has approved appropriations for the expenditure of up to $1 million for the purchase of the Company's DVM-500Plus In-Car Video Systems and approximately $250,000 for the purchase of the Company's LIDAR speed measurement systems by the Michigan State Police.
The Company has supplied the Michigan State Police with its DVM-500Plus In-Car Video Systems for the past three years, and the one-year extension just awarded will increase the total contract value to approximately $4.5 million. The LIDAR speed measurement contract covers an initial three-year period. In addition, these statewide contracts allow state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies within Michigan to purchase Digital Ally in-car video systems and LIDAR speed measurement systems at the same prices and under the same terms as were negotiated with the state police. Michigan has emerged as one of the top two or three highest ranking states in terms of total revenues generated for the Company, primarily as a result of these contracts with the Michigan State Police.
"We have an excellent and long-standing relationship with the Michigan State Police and are very pleased to be awarded this one-year extension of our statewide in-car video system contract and the new three-year LIDAR contract," noted Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "While we may benefit from certain orders under these contracts during the fourth quarter of 2013, the contracts will allow us to pursue sales opportunities with law enforcement agencies throughout Michigan over the next twelve months."
