innovative LED lighting products and accessories. From marine lighting to patio systems, we
offer a wide array of products to fit all of your lighting needs. We specialize in lights that are
exceptionally bright, robust, and efficient for both marine and terrestrial applications.
We recognize that our success is tied to the success of our network of select distributors
and authorized dealers. We also know they invest significant time and resources to deliver
a positive customer experience. We want to protect their ability to do so, while at the same
time discouraging price based advertising that would be detrimental to our dealers’ service
and support efforts. As a result, Shadow-Caster LED Lighting has unilaterally established
this Minimum Resale Price, (“MRP”) Policy.

“the lowest prices” or will match or beat its competitors’ prices, or to use similar
