Spare Backup Provides Corporate Update

Spare Backup Moving Forward With ShieldX2Plus Rollout While Working to Complete 2013 Financial Audit and Quarterly Financial Reporting Through June 30, 2014

MINDEN, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Spare Backup, Inc. (OTC Pink: SPBU) (PINKSHEETS: SPBU) ("Spare Backup" and "the Company") a provider of smartphone and tablet protective solutions including lightweight protective cases, device insurance, data backup and security software, announced today a corporate update for the first half of 2014.

Business Initiatives

Beginning late in the fourth quarter of 2013, Spare Backup began focusing its development and sales efforts on its ShieldX2 product, which includes a lightweight protective casing for smartphones and tablets than can be bundled as ShieldX2 and ShieldX2Plus to include repair and replacement insurance backed by an A+ rated insurance provider. Data backup and security software is also available, and will be included in some of its offerings. Over the course of the first half of 2014, the Company completed the device designs and established manufacturing relationships to scale production. Spare Backup has also entered an agreement with a third party insurance provider for the product launch. As of June 30, 2014, the Company offers the ShieldX2 and ShieldX2Plus smartphone protection packages for the iPhone 4, 4s, 5c and 5s, Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 and Note 3, and the HTC1. ShieldX2Plus packages for tablets are also available for iPad, iPad mini, and Samsung Tab3.

The Company is in the early stages of marketing ShieldX2 and ShieldX2Plus packages through a number of channels, including wholesale, B2B, direct to consumer and retail. The Company has also launched an E-commerce marketing campaign for its website: www.shieldx2plus.com. There are currently more than fifteen large potential distribution outlets, both domestic and international; conducting evaluations of various ShieldX2Plus offerings and the Company expects to determine the results of those evaluations over the course of the second half of 2014. Should those evaluations be successful and lead to significant orders, Spare Backup expects to quickly ramp up productions with its manufacturer in the coming quarters and into 2015.

Due to its limited financial resources and in order to focus on developing the ShieldX2Plus, the Company has begun to migrate from hosting its cloud based Spare Backup services for third party distributors. In February of 2014, the Company entered into a two year license software sale with its largest distribution partner to enable that distributor to independently host data storage for their customers using Spare Backup. The agreement provided for an acceleration of revenue for the Company and resulted in a significant reduction in hosting costs. We do not anticipate receiving significant future revenue from this distributor for the duration of the term of the agreement. The Company will continue to provide hosting services for its other distribution partners for the foreseeable future. In mid-2013, the Company was able to terminate its contract with its data center and enter a new contract with another data center at considerably lower rates.

Financial Reporting

As previously reported by Spare Backup in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in October of 2013, we engaged Kyle L. Tingle, CPA, LLC ("KLT") as our new independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company's consolidated financial statements. At this time, the Company is delinquent in the filing of required periodic financial reports with the SEC for the second quarter, third quarter and year-end of 2013, as well as the first quarter of 2014. The Company continues to work with KLT to become current in its reporting. While no definitive timetable has been set for the completion of these filings, the Company is working diligently and believes it will be in a position to become current with its reporting requirements with the SEC on or before the end of the third quarter of 2014.
