Despite a positive outlook for the product in the local market, Green Hippo and
Electrosonic SA have “mutually decided’ to end their distribution agreement,
effective end-November. A statement from Electrosonic SA reads:

“It is with sadness we have to announce that Electrosonic SA (Pty) Ltd will no longer
distribute the Green Hippo line of products in Southern Africa as from 26 November
2016. Both parties have mutually decided to go their separate paths. Electrosonic
SA will continue to support their existing customers in any way we can, but as of 26
November 2016 any new business will be directly with Green Hippo in the UK.
Electrosonic SA has had a great journey with Green Hippo over the last 3 and a half
years with some significant sales and milestones achieved. Green Hippo feels that it
is time to do things differently in South Africa and will announce their plans to the
market in due course. Electrosonic SA wishes to thank all our clients and users for
their support. There have been wonderful moments with many shows, Hippo
Schools, hugely successful Grahamstown Arts Festivals and Mediatech Shows with
the Hippo Brand, and in general some good times with Tom Etra and Simon Harris
from Green Hippo.’

Green Hippo was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press. A statement is expected from them in the near future.
