Innovative high bay, low bay, and aisle lighting fixtures deliver solid lumen performance with precise optics, low operating temperatures and superior energy efficiency with LUXEON LEDs

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, December 16, 2010 - Lusio(R) Solid State Lighting, a worldwide brand and division of
LightWild, today announced the release of 80 innovative SSL fixtures for
warehouses, convention centers, transportation terminals, manufacturing
plants, and other commercial and industrial facilities that utilize high bay,
low bay, and aisle lighting fixtures.

"Today's release is the culmination of years of input from customers and
significant engineering R&D innovations," said Tom Stafford, President and
CEO of LightWild. "With extensive prototyping, trial installs,
certifications, and compliance testing for worldwide installations, we
believe Lusio fixtures are the most complete solid state lighting fixtures
available for commercial and industrial installations. Seeing is believing.
Lusio delivers a cleaner, more useful quality of light for our customers with
significantly less energy consumption and a substantially lower overall total
cost of ownership than traditional commercial and industrial fixtures."

Superior Quality of Light, Solid Construction, 7-Year Warranties, and

Made in the USA, Lusio fixtures use housings comprised of up to 80
percent recycled aluminum and are designed to meet the rigorous physical
demands and light level requirements of commercial and industrial lighting
applications. Features and benefits include:

    -- Precise Optics: Lusio fixtures are engineered with optical reflectors
       that deliver five lighting distributions in mounting heights from
       12-60 feet (3.5-18 m). The specially engineered reflectors also
       minimize glare and deliver a substantially higher percentage of usable
       footcandles on key work areas than traditional HID and fluorescent
    -- Energy Efficiency and Low Maintenance: Lusio fixtures offer 35-70%
       energy savings through a direct replacement of HID and fluorescent
       fixtures. Because Lusio fixtures do not contain mercury or other
       hazardous substances, additional savings are achieved by elimination
       of costs for mercury lamp disposal. Lusio fixtures have an impressive
       overall fixture efficacy between 70 and 90 lumens per watt based on
       various fixture types and can generate more than 14,000 lumens for
       illumination of large retail, commercial, and industrial facilities.
    -- Thermal Efficiency: Lusio fixtures are one of the coolest operating
       commercial and industrial fixtures available in the market. The
       combination of specially engineered heat sinks and dissipation
       techniques, thermal transfer technologies and the superior thermal
       junction (Tj) temperature rating of 302 degrees F (150 degrees C) of
       the LUXEON Rebel ES LEDs used in the fixtures, allow Lusio to achieve
       up to 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) environmental operating temperature
       approval ratings by UL/CE. The overall cool fixture operating
       temperature of Lusio not only increases the longevity and reliability
       of the fixture, but also decreases AC cooling energy costs as compared
       to typical HID and high-output fluorescent fixtures.
    -- Controllable: Lusio fixtures interface to standard 0-10v dimmers and
       are offered with occupancy sensors to further reduce their energy
    -- 7-Year Warranties: Lusio fixtures come with a standard 7-year
       replacement warranty. Full terms and warranty details are available at
    -- Made in the USA: Lusio fixtures are compliant with the Buy American
       Act and the "Made in the USA" statement as described by the Federal
       Trade Commission. Lusio Solid State Lighting, as a division of
       LightWild, is an S.B.A. designated federal contractor (LightWild, L.C.
       - DUNS No. 360795368).

Lusio Leverages Industry Leading LUXEON Rebel ES from Philips Lumileds

Lusio Solid State Lighting selected the LUXEON Rebel ES for use in its
fixtures after extensive analyses of several LED packages.

"While many manufacturers seem to be chasing lumens as the sole criteria
for LED selection, LightWild also considered many other factors," Stafford
said. "We believe that the Rebel ES will deliver super-long life stability
and performance value for our customers."

"LightWild looked for a solution to meet their objectives for superior
light output, efficacy, and quality of light, each of which is delivered by
LUXEON Rebel ES," said Steve Barlow, Executive Vice President of Sales and
Marketing at Philips Lumileds. "We are proud that they have chosen the LUXEON
Rebel ES for their Lusio product line."


Lusio High Bay distribution and Low Bay Medium distribution fixtures are
immediately available. Lusio Aisle Lighter and High Bay Narrow distribution
for extreme mounting heights will be released mid-January 2011 and the Low
Bay Wide distribution will be released mid-February 2011.
