27 Tire Dealers Awarded Their Portion of ASA's $1M Bailout to Date

NASHUA, NH (July 7, 2009) - ASA Tire Systems announced today that the response to the $1M Tire Dealer Bailout Program continues to grow and monies continue to be awarded to tire dealers across the country.

Nationwide, hundreds of independent tire dealerships have submitted grant requests and are currently being considered for funding. Although many applications are still being processed, roughly 71% of the fund has been awarded to date. 27 different tire dealerships from across the country have already received funds. Dealers who are interested in applying for funding still have time and are encouraged to visit the company's website and fill out an application. The monies are in the form of a grant and do not have to be paid back to the company. Tire dealerships of any size who are interested in taking advantage of the offer to improve their technology infrastructure are eligible.

Wayne Croswell, president of ASA Tire Systems, says,"I continue to be impressed by the overwhelming response to our Tire Dealer Bailout Program. We have seen many dealers step up and take the initiative to replace old technology and antiquated infrastructures. A recent grant actually replaced a company's old cartho ray tube (CRT) screens with a state of the art network and pc's throughout. With over $700,000 in grants issued, we are approaching our goal of granting $1,000,000. There is still time and funds left, so I encourage dealers who have not yet applied to do so."

Dealers can still apply for the remaining funds via the ASA Tire Systems website https://www.asatire.com/bailout by filling out a form, or by contacting an ASA representative.
