STAMFORD, Conn. -- August 12, 2013

Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVLT) (“Revolution Lighting”),
a leader in advanced LED lighting technology, today announced it has entered
into a definitive agreement to acquire Relume Technologies (“Relume”), a
leading manufacturer of outdoor LED products and smart grid control systems
for outdoor lighting applications.

Under the terms of the agreement, Revolution Lighting will pay a total
purchase price of $15 million for the Relume business on a debt-free basis and
with a minimal level of working capital. Approximately $5 million of the
purchase price will be paid in cash with the remaining value of $10 million
paid in Revolution Lighting common stock.

“Both Revolution Lighting and Relume share a mutual vision to providing high
quality, efficient and cost effective LED lighting systems through an active
distribution network that educates, trains and services our customer base,”
said Robert V. LaPenta, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Revolution
Lighting Technologies. “Relume’s leadership in LED outdoor lighting
applications will complement Revolution Lighting’s current LED product
portfolio, allowing us to reach new markets and offer new products and
services to our existing customers.”

While Revolution Lighting’s products are primarily focused on indoor
applications, Relume serves several outdoor LED markets, including municipal
street and roadway lights, parking lots and garages, pedestrian areas,
buildings and outdoor advertising displays. More than 75% of Relume’s business
is made up of outdoor lighting, with the remaining part of the business split
between smart grid control systems, and LED lighting for media and signage. In
addition, Relume’s patented Silver Circuitry™ process for LED thermal
management offers the first seven-year LED warranty, adding significant value
to Revolution Lighting customers by improving LED performance, lowering
operating temperature and extending LED life.

“Combining Relume’s LED lighting applications with the suite of products
offered by our existing Lumificient and Seesmart brands will help drive new
market penetration,” added Charlie Schafer, President and Chief Financial
Officer of Revolution Lighting. “Their demonstrated ability to deliver
significant value to its sales force and customers will play a key role in
contributing to and accelerating our profitable growth. We look forward to
working closely with Relume’s highly experienced team members to execute on
our shared vision as we build a world class LED company that delivers the best
results for our customers, employees and all stakeholders.”

Relume’s President and CEO, Crawford Lipsey, and the majority of Relume’s
management team will continue to operate the Company as usual from its current
facility in Oxford Michigan. Lipsey is a 30-year veteran of the lighting
industry and has deep expertise in LED lighting. Prior to joining Relume,
Lipsey served 10 years as Executive Vice President of Acuity Brands Lighting,

“Revolution Lighting’s significant resources will allow Relume to invest in
the products, people, technology and equipment necessary to further accelerate
our growth in the LED lighting market,” said Lipsey. “Our businesses are an
ideal strategic fit and we are confident that our product offering,
engineering capabilities and sales resources will support and enhance
Revolution Lighting’s business and growth.”
