Verdant to Acquire Hybrid Power System Developer Windstrip

BEVERLY HILLS, June 6, 2013 – VRDT Corporation (“Verdant”) announced today that it has agreed to acquire Windstrip Hong Kong Limited (“Windstrip”) in exchange for approximately 15.5 million shares of VRDT common stock. Windstrip, through its Minnesota-based subsidiary, Windstrip LLC, has developed a state-of-the-art hybrid power system based on harnessing energy from multiple renewable and traditional energy sources, including wind, solar, and grid sources, storing and managing that energy using proprietary technology, and then delivering that energy for distributed industrial and other uses. Windstrip’s patent-pending wind systems form a key component of the flexibility of the hybrid system.

“While other companies in the next generation renewable energy markets are failing, most notably those in the electric vehicle sector, we at Verdant have remained firm and confident that our diverse, cross-discipline model would prove the more prudent and successful approach. When coupled with our acquisitions and partnerships formed to date, the acquisition of Windstrip allows us to demonstrate the effectiveness of our model,” stated Graham Norton-Standen, Verdant’s Executive Chairman, “utilizing the Windstrip system not only plays an integral role in our business plans, but also provides us with the ability to maximize secondary revenue streams across the entirety of our asset base.”

“Joining the Verdant family of companies presents a tremendous opportunity for Windstrip to grow and we believe the larger platform provided by VRDT and its subsidiaries will be the catalyst in successfully driving our product to market,” stated Lassi Noponen, Chairman of Windstrip, “we are extremely pleased to join the Verdant team and are excited about work as part of Verdant in capitalizing on the opportunities available for Windstrip.”

LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2011 – Verdant Automotive Corporation (OTCBB;VRDT) is pleased to announce NBA Champion and Record Holder, A.C. Green, joins the Board of Directors effective immediately.

A.C. Green, Director, Verdant Automotive

Mr. Green brings not only his rich knowledge of what it takes to be a champion but a diverse background in business development, investment and philanthropy to the Board. During his career A.C. owned twelve Denny’s restaurants and a Hyundai dealership among other investments. Automotive manufacturers, real estate companies, utility contractors and many others frequently tap A.C.’s unique talent in business development to help guide them to success.

“A.C. is one of the most down to Earth people I have ever met”, stated Daniel Elliott, Verdant Automotive Corp CEO. “He really knows how to bring the team together and drive results. A.C.’s experience in investment and business development is just icing on the cake!”

“When I first became involved with Verdant I saw a lot of potential”, Mr. Green commented. “Now, I am just completely blown away. This team is so experienced and promising… I feel great being involved with this growing opportunity!”

One of the things A.C. is most known for is his title as the NBA’s “Ironman”, having played in 1,192 straight games (surpassing Randy Smith’s 907 consecutive games played on November 20, 1997) during which time he played with NBA greats Magic Johnson, Coach Pat Riley, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and James Worthy, and ending with Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, and Coach Phil Jackson.

A.C. Green spent 16 seasons in the NBA, and won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers spanning three decades (1987, 1988 and 2000). A.C. is the only player in Laker history to win championships in both the “Fabulous” Forum and Staples Center. A.C. also played with Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, and Alonzo Mourning’s Miami Heat.

Mr. Green is also recognized for his contributions outside the NBA such as his tremendous commitment to youth through the A.C. Green Youth Foundation he started in 1989. The Foundation uses ‘I got the power!’ and ‘Game Plan’ curriculum to build self-esteem and commitment in today’s youth. A.C. also serves as one of the NBA’s Global Ambassadors and founded Going Green with A.C. Green™ to promote environmental awareness and sustainability.
