Oslo 20 May 2021 - Xplora Technologies (Xplora) continued the strong growth from

"The development in the first months of 2021 gives support to our targets: sales
growth remains strong and we continue to secure and add on new retail and
distribution partners in new and existing markets. We are adding internal
resources to manage the growth and our development team is delivering on

and growing portfolio of mobile smartwatch subscribers. The strong development
and many new initiatives in Xplora combined with an underlying strong market
momentum is highly supportive for exciting times ahead." says Sten Kirkbak, CEO

151% sales growth considering the many closed retail outlets across Europe due
