Distribution Agreement with Key Player in Water
Resource Management 
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 -- E. S. I.
Environmental Sensors Inc. ("ESI" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:ESV)
is pleased to announce the signing of a Distribution Agreement with
Beijing Yanyu Water Technology Company Ltd. ("BJYY" or "Yanyu"), a
subsidiary of Tri-Tech Holding Inc. ("Tri-tech") (Nasdaq: "TRIT").
With operations in China, the U.S. and India, Tri-tech provides
turn-key water resources management, water and wastewater treatment,
water-efficient irrigation, and industrial emission and safety
control solutions, with fiscal 2012 sales of $72.6M.  
ESI and BJYY/Tri-tech held initial meetings over a year and a half
ago. Since that time the parties have worked together toward,
firstly, the testing and national acceptance of ESI's sensing
technology for the Chinese market, and, secondly, an agreement on an
exclusive partnership for China. The process has involved the
development by ESI of a customized version of the Company's TDT (time
domain transmissiometry) soil moisture sensors in order to meet
physical measurement parameters specified by Chinese Government
ministries. ESI has supported efforts by BJYY for their in-house
testing of the sensor as well as testing of the sensor by Chinese
government ministry scientists. Through these various tests, this
customized version of ESI's GroPoint(R) Lite Profiling Probe has been
selected by BJYY/Tri-tech as their preferred product and ESI as their
premier supplier for the Chinese market.  
This tremendous investment in effort, patience and resources by both
parties over the past twenty months has finally paid off: ESI's Board
and management are extremely pleased to announce this long-term
partnership and supply agreement with BJYY/Tri-tech. It represents a
reliable and sizeable product distribution through a key market
player and lead customer - a supply and sales partnership for one of
the most important and significant markets in the world.  
Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, significant minimum
purchase requirements allow for a steady and reliable production and
sales volumes over an initial minimum period of three years. ESI and
BJYY/Tri-tech will continue to develop and grow their partnership by
expanding product range and market reach throughout this period and
beyond.  
"This agreement with BJYY/Tri-tech resembles exactly what ESI has
been aiming at with its relentless efforts to develop the most
competitive technological product excellence: solid, long-term,
high-volume supply partnerships with selected key players in the most
promising volume markets of the world. We will continue along these
lines and grow ESI into truly global product presence, in this
application area and beyond. The Board is extremely pleased with this
milestone success on behalf of all of ESI's stakeholders, and is
fully committed to help translate this significant sign of ESI's
technological leadership into sustainable growth and financial
success for the Company", said Stephan Radermacher, Chairman of the
Board of ESI and Executive Director/COO of Avis Financial
Corporation, ESI's majority shareholder. 
"Introducing new and high-tech products into the Chinese hydrological
industry is one of Yanyu's development directions. During our
research of technology suited to this market, we were very lucky to
identify ESI as a potential business partner. After detailed
communication and solid efforts by both sides, we are very excited
that we can now develop a long-term, prosperous, and cooperative
relationship. We are looking forward to learning more from each other
and to creating more and more areas of cooperation between our
companies," said Hongzhi Ma, CEO of Beijing Yanyu Water-Tech Co.,
Ltd.
