Press Release: Exile Announces Exclusive Distribution Deal with Penthouse for DVDs!

Exile Distribution is the new, high-end, distribution choice for the adult industry. The company is owned by Exquisite Multimedia, Inc.’s Jerry, who enlisted adult sales legend Howard Levine as the President of Sales. Exile Distribution is pleased to announce its first exclusive deal—an agreement with Penthouse to handle DVD sales and distribution. Levine plans to maintain a selective and small client list for Exile, in order to provide intimate service to the represented studios, while providing retailers and distributors with the best product available.

“Exquisite, through its new division, Exile is the ideal home for the distribution requirements of Penthouse’s DVDs, since it is based on a wealth of industry knowledge and experience.” says Kelly Holland, President of Penthouse Studios, “Howard and Jerry continue to demonstrate a top notch ability to successfully market a title in the retail space to access maximum profits for a title.”

Beginning in January 2011, Exile Distribution will be the sole source for retailers and distributors to obtain DVDs from Penthouse Video. Penthouse Video earned ten AVN Award nominations for its diverse list of releases the past year, including a Best Feature nominee for “Scorned”. With Exile providing distribution support to Penthouse’s new line up of releases, the upcoming year promises to be bigger and better for Penthouse’s video division. One of the first Penthouse titles distributed by Exile will be the studio’s first 3D release on Blu-ray™ Disc, demonstrating a collective commitment to new market opportunities and technologies.

“Exile Distribution is built on the concept of fewer clients and more personal attention,” says President of Sales Howard Levine. “We want to establish a close relationship with the studios, retailers and distributors we work with. Exile has a no-compete policy, in order to ensure our clients like Penthouse receive our full support. Their titles will have our backing one hundred percent, and retailers and distributors can be assured we believe in the products we are selling.”

Levine continues, “Over the years, I’ve had numerous offers to help start an independent distribution venture. Jerry’s offer was the first one I felt comfortable with. We share the same vision for Exile, as an alternative to the massive distribution companies with no knowledge of the product they sell. Exile is the way business should be done.”

Over twenty years of experience earned Howard Levine the reputation as the best salesman in the business. His most recent triumph was heading sales for Axel Braun’s “Batman XXX: A Porn Parody”, named by AVN as the Best Selling DVD of 2010. Howard was also responsible for selling all of Vivid’s acclaimed celebrity sex tapes, including Pamela Anderson’s.

“Howard is the man when it comes to sales,” says Exile owner Jerry. “He has an old school way of doing business, while still being completely in tune with the newest products, niches and demand. We want to shake up the industry a bit with Exile, and provide a source for high quality movies.”
