International Vapor Group and F&M Merchant Group Announce Strategic Partnership

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) -   International Vapor Group has partnered with F&M Merchant Group. F&M Merchant Group is the sales team who is responsible for Blu's launch in grocery stores, drug stores and the c-store channel within the USA. Since Blu's purchase by Lorillard, many electronic cigarettes companies approached F&M Merchant Group (F&M). International Vapor Group (IVG) is proud to announce that F&M has carefully selected their brand due to the quality, one-of-a-kind innovation and established online customer base for IVG's popular e-Cig brands: South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke.

F&M drove the appearance of e-Cigs in grocery stores and drug stores over the past two years. IVG is thrilled to have their experience and history of success within their retailers, as the e-Cig business transforms from a niche category to an emerging, permanent and powerful tobacco subcategory. The new partnership will bring the IVG's line of electronic cigarette products to an immensely extensive list of retailers across the nation. F&M will become the exclusive marketer and distributor of IVG e-Cig products.

With more than one million customers throughout across the country, IVG is at a position to unite their online buyers with traditional retail outlets. IVG is in the process of adding store locators to its website, allowing its customers to easily find their local retail stores. South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke e-Cig products have already hit retail locations through the U.S. The rate of retail placement will now begin to further increase as a result of the new partnership with F&M.

"The new partnership with F&M will allow us to build upon our strengths and strengthen our weaknesses," said Nick Molina, CEO of International Vapor Group. "We are combining an excellent product with a one-of-a-kind company. This partnership will allow for both companies to profitably partake in the quickly growing electronic cigarette sector with a product that provides great consumer satisfaction."

The reality is that very few electronic cigarette companies have the level of expertise, passion and resources that the International Vapor Group upholds. IVG has been an integral part of the electronic cigarettes evolution since its early days. Every employee emphasizes the passion behind an electronic cigarette, the good that arose from it and the positive impact that an e-cig brings to the world.
