Heliospectra: Heliospectra to Present New Findings at the 8th International Symposium on Light in Horticulture

HELIOSPECTRA TO PRESENT NEW FINDINGS AT THE 8TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
LIGHT IN HORTICULTURE

Heliospectra AB (OTCQB:HLSPY, FIRSTNORTH: HELIO), a world leader in
intelligent lighting technology for plant research and controlled
environment agriculture, will present their latest findings on light
quality and optimisation at the upcoming VIII International Symposium on
Light in Horticulture, East Lansing, Michigan, May 22- 26.

On Monday May 23rd Daniel Bånkestad, Research and Development Engineer with
Heliospectra, will be conducting an oral presentation during the "Light
quality and optimization" session entitled LED spectrum optimisation using
steady-state fluorescence gains.

His presentation is preceded by a session with Anna-Maria Carstensen, PhD
candidate at Chalmers University of Technology, who is presenting findings
on Exploring the dynamics of remotely detected fluorescence transients from
Basil as a potential feedback for lighting control in greenhouses.

Both findings were made possible by utilizing Heliospectra's intelligent
LED plant growth light systems as a part of an ongoing project funded by
Mistra. Mistra is a Swedish organization, which seeks to promote
sustainable development by investing in collaborations between researchers
and industry - with the aim of solving important environmental problems.

Dr. Grazyna Bochenek along with Ida Fällström, Plant and Light Research
Manager with Heliospectra, will present some of their recent work on a
poster entitled The effect of diurnal light intensity distributions on
plant productivity in a controlled environment.

Presentations continue on Tuesday May 23rd when Dr. Karl-Johan Bergstrand
from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences will present his
research, Using short photoperiods and narrow-band lighting as a way of
controlling growth in ornamental pot- and bedding plants, using the
Heliospectra intelligent lighting system.

About Heliospectra AB
Heliospectra AB (publ) (OTCQB: HLSPY, FIRSTNORTH: HELIO) (
) specializes in intelligent lighting
technology for plant research and greenhouse cultivation. The Company's
lighting system provides an effective and durable technology for
cultivating greenhouse and indoor plants by combining several different
groups of versatile light emitting diodes (LEDs) with optics, remote
sensing techniques, and a robust heat dissipation solution. This
proprietary setup gives growers the ability to control the intensity and
wavelengths of the light emitted, creating a spectrum specifically adjusted
to different plant species and growth stages to better facilitate
photosynthesis. The complete, highly- engineered lamp produces crops that
look better, taste better, and have a longer shelf-life than those grown
under HID lamps. The technology not only reduces energy consumption by up
to 50%, but also helps stimulate growth characteristics and improve plant
quality. Other benefits include reduced light pollution, lower mercury use
due to the avoidance of traditional HID/HPS bulbs, and less HVAC investment
and monthly expense requirements.

Heliospectra products are based on in-depth knowledge in plant physiology
and photosynthesis along with a unique way to utilize modern LED
technology. After six years of development in Sweden, the company has now
begun to expand into the international market. The company has raised more
than $ 21 million in capital and has received more than $2.6 million
through academic scholarships and grants. It has also received numerous
awards for its forward thinking technology. Principal owners: Weland Steel
, Swedish Industrial Fund
, Midroc , Avanza
