Mace Announces Director Resignation

CLEVELAND, Ohio, April 18, 2023 – Mace Security International, Inc. (OTCQX: MACE) today announced that Mr. Richard Barone decided to resign from its Board of Directors, effective April 14, 2023.

Mr. Barone, 81, returned to Mace’s Board in 2022 to lead the charge on our Strategic Alternatives project. The Strategic Alternatives Project has been quite time consuming and while significant progress has been made developing these alternatives, the current economic and market environment has meant that bringing this project to conclusion will require a commitment of time which is incompatible with Mr. Barone’s other commitments and work schedule at this time. Mr. Barone has offered to continue to advise the Board on any open projects for the next six months in an advisory capacity. The Board has accepted his offer.

On behalf of our Board and Mace’s management team, we thank Mr. Barone for his service and commitment to helping the Company navigate a restructuring during the last twelve months during a challenging economic environment,” stated Sanjay Singh, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mace.
