Orion Energy Systems Sets New Standard for Exterior LED Lighting Market with Introduction of New Modular Products

Company Begins to Roll Out New Branding Initiative At Annual Sales Summit

MANITOWOC, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: OESX) (“Orion” or the “Company”), a leading designer and manufacturer of energy management systems consisting primarily of high-performance, energy-efficient lighting platforms, today announced the Company’s entry into the exterior lighting market through the official launch of a suite of new exterior LED lighting products.

Orion estimates its market for exterior fixtures to be approximately 53 million across the United States.

The product launch includes LED retrofit solutions for pole-mounted and wall-mounted area lighting applications most commonly found in commercial, industrial, and retail markets. Orion’s flagship exterior products, the ISON LED Area Light and the ISON LED Wall Pack, were both featured at Orion’s Annual Sales Summit this week (October 13th – 14th). The fixtures remained on display and were featured in demonstrations to an audience of over 250 partners, representing 80 different companies from Orion’s reseller network from across the country.

Orion began accepting pre-orders for the new exterior products during the Sales Summit and expects to begin shipping orders and recording revenues by its fourth fiscal quarter.

Management Commentary
John Scribante, Chief Executive Officer of Orion stated, “We are very excited to introduce Orion’s breakthrough ISON Exterior LED fixtures to the market, which we feel is a game-changing initiative for the Company. This is a sizable addressable market with minimal LED adoption, which presents an incredible opportunity for Orion to offer Best in Class solutions to companies in the retail and commercial space. These products can easily and cost-effectively retro-fit current retail and commercial facilities, and also can be installed in new construction to provide optimal lighting performance and energy efficiency. We believe the recent expansions of our product portfolio will allow Orion and our resellers to win more business by offering an assortment of lighting options in addition to the market’s fastest delivery and turnaround.”

Mr. Scribante continued, “We were overwhelmed by the response from our reseller network during Orion’s Annual Sales Summit, which included a record number of attendees travelling from all across the U.S. During the Summit we began to unveil elements of Orion’s re-branding initiative, which included a new look and feel for the Company. Over the past year we have worked hard to re-engage and expand our reseller network, and now are beginning to provide them with industry-leading products to sell to their customer base. Many attendees placed orders at the Summit, and we expect that this network will be a principle driving factor in Orion’s growth in the months and years ahead.”
