announced that, effective September 2013, its wholly owned subsidiary, Orbital

The agreement and new relationship gives increased weight to Orbital-UK's ever
growing versatility and ability to work in new industry areas and with new
partners and clients. This is a corner stone of Orbital-UK's past and present
growth. Orbital-UK's 30 years of experience in providing innovative
engineering solutions and its ability to consistently deliver projects on
time, within budget and with unrivalled build quality, coupled with Yokogawa's
diverse and large range of high quality products will ensure that end-users
receive an engineered solution to meet their process requirements.
"We are pleased by Yokogawa's decision to appoint Orbital as a system
integration partner for the UK," commented Orbital-UK's managing director,
Andrew Ridge. "Although in its early stages we feel very confident that this
will be a long and mutually beneficial relationship between the two
Neil Stuchbury, Orbital-UK's sales director added, "We are a growing
organization, with many exciting opportunities ahead. This partnership with
Yokogawa is an excellent example of our ambition to extend our portfolio in
supporting industry leading clients like Yokogawa Electric Corporation and its
UK subsidiary. The partnership with Yokogawa also emphasizes Orbital's
expertise, ambition and growing worldwide reputation."
In a related event, Orbital-UK also recently was awarded a contract to design,
build and supply LPG and Liquid Propane odorization systems for a West African
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Liquid Propane storage plant. Orbital-UK
will be working closely with several organizations to ensure its high quality
engineered and safe solutions are delivered within the agreed program.
Export of these odorization systems is a significant milestone for
Orbital-UK. These are the first such systems that Orbital-UK will be making
for use outside of the United Kingdom. The solutions will be delivered Q1
2014 and are a very important part of the West African site infrastructure.
The project is valued at approximately £800,000 ($1,275,000) to Orbital-UK.
CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough, stated that, "Orbital's
experience in the UK is second to none in designing and implementing
odorization systems. It has been responsible for implementing the vast
majority of Natural Gas Odorization plants in the UK and has maintained those
plants for over 15 years now. It is now time to include this key area of
business in the UK into the global marketplace and this West African project
is an excellent starting point."
"This new relationship with Yokogawa and the West African project are all
indicators of the continuing value of the Orbital-UK acquisition. We believe
that, as we expand Orbital-UK's product portfolio globally, along with the
impact of the VE-Probe and GasPT2 Technologies, the acquisition will only
increase our ability to grow and enhance shareholder value in the future,"
