OWC Digital®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology
company, has received coveted Stevie® Awards from the American Business Awards (ABA) for both the
Aura SSD for Mid 2013 and Later Mac Laptops and USB-C Dock. Submitting only two of their devices
into the competitive New Product category, OWC earned top recognition for both of these outstanding and
sought-after products during the two-month-long voting process from an elite panel of 250-plus judges
including many of the world's most respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators and business

With more than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes in virtually every industry for consideration
in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or
Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, and Live Event of the Year, OWC emerged as a Gold
Stevie Winner and Silver Stevie Winner for the 14th Annual ABAs, reflecting their 25+ years of continuous
excellence in manufacturing and upgrade services.

Building upon the recent release of the Aura SSD for Mid 2013 and Later MacBook Air and MacBook Pro
with Retina Display , the anticipated storage upgrade won the Gold Stevie Award in the category of
Peripheral or Storage Hardware . For the first time, these recent MacBook models can be seamlessly
upgraded with PCIe-based flash storage, providing up to eight times more storage than the factory capacity

In addition to the top prize in Peripheral or Storage Hardware, the utilitarian USB-C Dock won the Silver
Stevie Award in the category of Computer, Semiconductor or Other Electronic Component for its
unparalleled connectivity features using a single USB Type-C cable. As MacRumors a f f i r m s , OWC's USB-C
Dock is "an impressive accessory for showcasing the potential of the current line of Retina MacBooks,"
bringing much needed versatility and functionality by expanding USB connectivity with its ten ports.
