TUALATIN, Ore., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a
platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and
commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today
announced that the Final Test Report from the Polish Oil & Gas Department
Central Testing and Calibration Laboratory in Warsaw ("CLPB") has been
released. After extensive testing, the report formally approves the Vergence®
Natural Gas Metering Device (GasPT2) for "on-line usage" at all levels of the
Polish Natural Gas Network.

During the five month test, CLPB considered, among other things, the variable
and, at times extreme, Polish climate and the quality diversity of natural gas
in Poland. The test results were and are quite consistent with all other
tests conducted using the device. In sum, the CLPB found that the Vergence
device met or exceeded all of the advertised specifications.

Specifically, in Section III "Conclusions," the report notes that:

  oThe GasPT2 performed properly and accurately for gases "containing
    nitrogen content even up to 35%" (Section III.4);
  o"There were no errors found in the GasPT2 readings related to gas
    containing sulfur compounds typical for Polish gas network" (Section
    III.7);
  oEven in emergency situations, there "were no errors found in GasPT2
    readings related to different readings of water dew point temperatures
    (WDP)" (Section III.8);
  oThe GasPT2 response time is "very short . . . much shorter than modern
    fast gas chromatographs" and there is "no 'memory effect' of previous gas
    . . . . due to the small internal volume of the device" (Section III.10)
    and,
  oThe GasPT2 device "estimates correctly the values of physicochemical
    parameters in accordance with the ISO 6976 algorithm" (Section III.11).

The report concluded by stating that, "in situations where the values of
physicochemical values are relevant, from technical point of view the GasPT2
can be a substitute or supplement for chromatographic system, especially for
'on line' gas chromatographs." (Section III at pg. 7).

CUI Global further confirmed that its Lead Engineer, Terry Williams, and other
company representatives have been invited to meet with CLPB and
representatives from the Polish National Gas Transmission Operator, GAZ-SYSTEM
S.A., in early January to discuss implementation of the technology on the
Polish Natural Gas Network.
