The company considers such statements as a deliberate misrepresentation and misstatement.
ESS Distribution brings to attention of the channel community and the media that no fact of any fraud committed by the company and/or its employees with regards to ESET or Channel partners was ever registered, notified or communicated to ESS Distribution.

ESS Distribution once again brings to attention of the channel community and the media that no fact attributed to “ESS Distribution’s position” over the issue stated in this report is true. ESS Distribution emphasizes that no journalist from the website has contacted the company officially before this report appeared in the press.
