CUI Global Signs (US) $1,000,000 Agreement For Global Distribution Rights Of Its Vergence™ GasPT2 Inferential Metering Device

TUALATIN, Ore., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced it has signed a Distribution Agreement with Blue Flame, a global distribution company formed by The Belleau Wood Group ("BWG") in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).  The Agreement calls for distribution of CUI Global's patented Vergence™ Natural Gas Metering Device.  Specifically, the agreement gives Blue Flame global distribution rights for sale of the device excluding the United Kingdom, Italy, and North America.

Among other provisions, the Agreement calls for a one-time payment of $1,000,000 to CUI Global from BWG-Blue Flame as a "Distribution Fee."  For its part, Blue Flame has already made initial penetration into various international energy markets in which it has either signed or is in the process of finalizing agreements that are expected to result in substantial sales of the product.  These markets include Romania, Thailand, Mexico, Turkey, and the recently announced testing agreement in the UAE. 

CUI Global's President & CEO William Clough commented, "This agreement with BWG/Blue Flame is yet another step towards full commercialization and international sales of our patented Vergence™ Technology.  BWG, through its distribution company Blue Flame, is committed to rapidly placing our technology with various international energy leaders in both the government and private sectors.  Their extensive network of energy professionals, end users, and regulatory authorities worldwide will enable us to present and sell our devices to a broader customer base in a highly strategic fashion."

Patrick F. Campos, BWG's CEO, stated, "We are delighted to be CUI Global's worldwide distribution partner for the groundbreaking Vergence™ Technology.  We have clearly seen that the Vergence device receives a ready and enthusiastic reception in the international energy community.  Through Blue Flame, we will be working hand-in-hand with CUI Global to rapidly open new distribution channels for this exciting product in the global energy markets."

"Execution of this agreement with BWG/Blue Flame, coupled with agreements already signed and announced with Orbital-UK in the United Kingdom and Socrate s.p.a. in Italy, means that we now have professional sales coverage and representation on a worldwide basis, leaving us to concentrate our efforts on penetrating the North American energy market.  We will be addressing North America, including the United States and Canada, over the next few weeks," explained Clough. 

"In the meantime, we are quite confident that Blue Flame will begin to immediately introduce this ground breaking technology to new customers in the Middle East, South America, Europe, and Asia – all leading to increased revenues and, thereby, increased value for CUI Global and its Shareholders," concluded Clough.
