Lighting Science® Ranked One of the Fastest Growing Companies in North America on Deloitte’s 2013 Technology Fast 500™

Lighting Science® (OTCQB: LSCG) today announced it ranked No. 204 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Lighting Science grew 512% over the past five years and has established itself as the leader in health and wellness lighting technology and solutions.

Lighting Science recently launched the Good Night™ LED light and the Awake & Alert™ LED light, the first biologically-corrected lighting solutions offered directly to consumers. Based on patented technology developed for NASA, the International Space Station and the U.S. South Pole Station, the revolutionary line of LED bulbs is both a scientific and technological breakthrough. The light bulbs fit into conventional sockets and provide the same bright white light that consumers demand, but with the added revolutionary health benefits of better sleep and greater alertness.

Companies on the Fast 500 list are among those that have demonstrated remarkable innovation, creativity and business savvy. These companies have continued to successfully forge ahead in a challenging economic environment. Lighting Science's Vice President, Sean Tegart, credits engineering innovation with the company's 512% revenue growth.
