sale of the assets of its X-Ray Florescence (XRF) Lead Paint Detector product
line to PROTEC Instrument Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of its long-time
distributor, French firm Laboratories PROTEC S.A.

This transaction is a step in the previously announced strategy to restructure
the Company to improve liquidity and pay down bank debt. The consummation of
this divestiture resulted in a payment to Santander Bank, N.A., the Company's

previously reported, at September 30, 2012, the Company's indebtedness to
Santander was approximately $9.0 million. The Company also has a subordinated
$3 million note to Massachusetts Capital Resource Corporation which has not
been paid down.

"This divestiture is an important step in our strategy to focus our business
and improve our balance sheet," said Peter Sulick, Chairman and CEO of
Dynasil. "We are very pleased to consummate the sale of the XRF assets to our

the XRF assets, Dynasil has reduced outstanding indebtedness while also
eliminating cost," continued Mr. Sulick. "While we cannot yet report that we
are out of technical default with our creditors, we expect to continue to make
near-term progress toward this goal."
