About Visualant, Inc.

Visualant™ is a public company whose shares trade under the stock symbol,
VSUL. The Visualant Spectral Pattern Matching™ technology directs structured
light onto a substance, through a liquid/gas, or off a surface, to capture a
unique ChromaID™. When matched against existing databases, a ChromaID can be
used to identify, detect, or diagnose markers invisible to the human eye.
ChromaID scanner modules can be integrated into a variety of mobile or
fixed-mount form factors. The patented technology is disruptive, making it
possible to effectively conduct analyses in the field that could only
previously be performed by large and expensive lab–based tests.

Visualant has a Joint Development Agreement through December 31, 2013 with
Sumitomo Precision Products Co., Ltd. ("SPP"), which focuses on the
commercialization of the SPM technology and an ongoing License Agreement
providing SPP with an exclusive license of the SPM technology in identified
Asian territories. For more information, visit http://www.visualant.net.
