Canton, MA - May 1, 2012 - LoJack Corporation (NASDAQ: LOJN), the company that invented and leads the Stolen Vehicle Recovery category, today announced the kick-off of a new consumer promotion. Designed to showcase the effectiveness of the LoJack System in helping police to find and recover a stolen vehicle, the centerpiece of the promotion is vehicles equipped with a giant arrow on top and the message, "LoJack Finds Cars. Prove You Can Too for a Chance to Win." The promotion, which was developed in collaboration with The VIA Agency, Ad Age's 2011 Small Agency of the Year, includes online, on-the-street and at-the-dealership components, and features a suite of prizes, including a technology makeover grand prize.
"We are holding this promotion to illustrate just how effective the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System is in helping police to find a stolen vehicle that is equipped with the system," said Sarah Cook, Director of Marketing, LoJack Corporation. "It underscores our better than 90 percent success rate in finding stolen cars, trucks and SUVs that are armed with our system, which far exceeds the declining national recovery rate of 56 percent. In addition to a fun, on-the-streets campaign in key cities, dealer promotions nationwide and an online component, the initiative will feature a suite of great prizes and has educational elements to help consumers understand how to protect their vehicles from theft."
