Increasing Focus on Fast-Growing Monitoring, Control and Analytics Businesses

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Marketwired May16, 2017) BlueNRGY Group Limited (OTC PINK: CBDEF) ("BlueNRGY"), a leader in engineered solutions for the management of distributed power generation and climate control/energy efficiency systems, today announced a strategic realignment of its business units and a streamlining of North American operations.

Through its market-leading Draker and Inaccess affiliates, BlueNRGY has been a pioneer in providing internet-of-things (IOT) technologies to the renewable energy sector. As a result, the Company has become a global leader in delivering best-in-class solutions for remotely monitoring and managing thousands of massively distributed solar and telecom installations worldwide. To maximize management focus on these fast-growing monitoring, control and analytics businesses, BlueNRGY is curtailing its direct operations and maintenance (O&M) service offerings globally and will no longer provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for new renewable generation projects in the Americas and Europe.

BlueNRGY intends to provide its renewable energy customers with a full range of O&M support through a growing network of strategic partners who rely on the Draker and Inaccess software platforms, analytics and reports to identify and prioritize maintenance actions across portfolios of renewable assets outside of its Australian home region. For the growing number of asset owners and their service partners who are requesting it, BlueNRGY is augmenting the 24/7 operations support delivered from its strategically located network operations centers staffed by Draker and Inaccess personnel in Australia, Europe and USA.

BlueNRGY's withdrawal from the EPC business in the USA and UK represents the final step in restructuring the Company's legacy businesses, which lacked the scale and capabilities to become leaders in their served markets. As a result of this initiative, BlueNRGY intends to wind up operations at its Westinghouse Solar Ltd. subsidiary in the UK and North Carolina-based Green Earth Developers LLC prior to the end of its June 30 fiscal year. These actions will be immediately accretive to earnings from continuing operations, after recognition of noncash provisions for good will impairment associated with the discontinued business units. 

William Morro, Chairman & Managing Director of BlueNRGY stated, "As a smaller company operating globally, BlueNRGY currently lacks the resources necessary to compete effectively in the volatile and capital-intensive EPC and O&M sectors in major markets. By concentrating the Company's limited capital and technical resources on our high-value-added technology-based businesses where we have a strong competitive advantage, BlueNRGY can now continue to grow with improving profitability and more sustainable financial performance."
