Byrna Technologies Wins Record Law Enforcement Order in Argentina

ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Byrna Technologies Inc. ("Byrna" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: BYRN), a personal defense technology company specializing in the development, manufacture, and sale of innovative less-lethal personal security solutions, today announced a milestone $6 million order with the Córdoba Provincial Police force in Argentina. The 4,000-launcher order, fulfilled through Byrna's distributor Bersa S.A., is the largest single order in the Company's history.

The Córdoba Provincial Police force, comprising of approximately 40,000 officers, initiated its adoption of less-lethal weapons earlier this year with a purchase of 1,000 launchers. Since then, the successful deployment of Byrna's launchers by various specialized units, including road police, special surveillance, and patrol units, has attracted significant attention.

"This order underscores the tremendous success we are experiencing in Argentina and further solidifies our strategic entry into this growing market," said Byrna CEO Bryan Ganz. "We are confident that this is the beginning of a valuable opportunity for Byrna in Argentina as more municipalities find success with our products. With shifting political policies favoring less-lethal solutions across South America, Byrna is at the forefront of the discussion. Our state-of-the-art launchers, combined with our powerful projectiles, provide law enforcement agencies with a truly effective alternative."

While these sales through Byrna's distribution partner, Bersa S.A., are not directly reflected in Byrna's reported numbers, these recent wins underscore the strategic importance of Byrna's LATAM joint venture and the long-term growth potential for Byrna internationally and within the law enforcement market. This latest order from the Córdoba Provincial Police highlights the accelerating adoption of less-lethal weapons in Argentina, with Byrna also securing deployments in Buenos Aires, Lanus, and Ezeiza. The Company views its growing foothold in Argentina as a critical steppingstone as it expands its presence across South America, particularly into Brazil, furthering its plan to advance less-lethal security solutions in Latin America.

The Company remains dedicated to shaping the global landscape of less-lethal security solutions. As Byrna continues to evolve and expand, its trajectory is marked by dynamic collaborations that prioritize human life and security.
