BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VRDT Corporation (OTCQB:VRDT) ("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."
