Vu1 Corporation (OTCBB: VUOCD) (“the Company”), a developer and manufacturer of mercury-free, energy-efficient general illumination lighting technology, announced today favorable updates regarding its sales, manufacturing and funding efforts.


Due to the strength of the recent launch of Vu1 R30 bulbs on, the Company has received a follow-on purchase order (PO) from Lowe’s and expects to have the website restocked soon; the initial supply of Vu1 R30 bulbs sold-out within 2 hours of being made available on

In addition, the Company is working closely with its Lowe’s counterparts to support the anticipated nationwide rollout and availability of R30 bulbs in 1,725 Lowe’s stores.


At the end of December 2011, Vu1’s R30 product, as manufactured by Huayi Lighting, was internally qualified. The Company has been working diligently to qualify its product since October 2011, with the goal of completing this important milestone prior to the January 23rd start of the Chinese New Year. Huayi Lighting will manufacture the R30 bulbs for Lowe’s.

As previously announced in October, Vu1 signed a five-year manufacturing agreement with Huayi Lighting, a leading lighting manufacturer, to supply it with 250 million units (bulbs). Founded in 1986, Huayi has 200,000 square meters (2,152,000 square feet) of manufacturing capacity and was widely praised for its lighting of Beijing’s famous National Stadium (popularly known as the ‘Bird’s Nest’ stadium) during the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.


As a result of the strong initial reception of R30 bulbs on, Vu1 has received offers from both company insiders and people with whom it has existing relationships, to finance Vu1's growth at terms that management deems to be in the best interest of all shareholders and better than what is currently available in the public capital markets. The Company has therefore decided to pull its current S-1 Registration and complete a private transaction that will give Vu1 the ability to fund the reorders it has received from Lowe's.
