Premier Holding Turnaround

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) - Premier Holding Corporation (OTCQB: PRHL) announced today that its turnaround is dramatic and the company is able to provide positive results and a status report to shareholders that demonstrates Premier's path to building the company.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Premier Holding, Randall Letcavage, reported that the turnaround and developmental phases of the company have yielded results and implementation is now in full swing. "The 10-Q was filed late yesterday afternoon and accepted by the Edgar Reporting System," Letcavage said. "A brief delay was necessary to properly account for assets recently acquired from The Power Company USA, LLC (TPC). The delay allowed for the proper capitalization and valuation of assets acquired pursuant to the recent transaction. This was an important item of our turnaround plan, clearing the way for the next phase of growth."

This quarter begins to demonstrate results from the new management led by Letcavage who took control of the company in October of 2012. The results demonstrate a dramatic turnaround increasing Shareholders equity to $5,932,397 (five million nine hundred thirty two thousand three hundred ninety seven dollars) at March 31, 2013, from $241,276 (two hundred forty one thousand two hundred seventy six dollars) at December 31, 2012. That's an increase of $5,691,121 (five million six hundred ninety one thousand one hundred twenty one dollars). That increase is due primarily to the preliminary valuation of $4,500,000 (four million five hundred thousand dollars) in residential deregulated energy contracts from The Power Company USA, LLC, and net income of $488,147 (four hundred eighty eight thousand one hundred forty seven dollars).

"Premier believes these deregulated energy contracts in hand today are worth approximately $20,000,000 (twenty million dollars) if the company chose to sell them off in the deregulated energy markets" said Letcavage. He further stated, "The Power Company continues to add 1,500 to 2,000 new contracts each month". The market value of these contracts at year end, December 31, 2013, should exceed $35,000,000 (thirty five million dollars) (if the company chose to sell them). The above calculations do not include the commercial accounts being serviced by The Power Company USA, LLC. These contracts could be worth millions more and have added value in that those customers will be referred over to Energy Efficiency Experts (E3) for additional product sales.

Premier also picked up $869,000 (eight hundred sixty nine thousand dollars) in revenue from the disposition of the assets of WePower Ecolutions and the initiation of revenue generation in both Energy Efficiency Experts (E3) and The Power Company USA, LLC. This produced net income of $466,147 (four hundred sixty six thousand one hundred forty seven dollars) in the most recent quarter, certainly a vast improvement from Q1 2012 which showed a net loss of $452,330 (four hundred fifty two thousand three hundred thirty dollars), at the year ended December 31, 2012 which showed a loss of $2,115,372 (two million one hundred fifteen thousand three hundred seventy two dollars).

While management is happy to report these positive results -- everyone at Premier is working diligently to continue to provide even more dramatic future results to its shareholders each day.

Moving Forward

Premier Holding is currently operating its two subsidiaries, The Power Company USA, LLC (TPC) and Energy Efficiency Experts (E3). TPC continues to grow and is now directing its commercial accounts to E3 for further sales. That combination is expected to generate additional second quarter revenues for Premier, and although the company anticipates a strong second quarter, it expects to hit full stride by Q4. E3 also expects to benefit from the relationships it has established with Muni-Fed Energy, Inc. and other distributors and resellers of its proprietary E-Series technology from Active ES (and complete green solutions product lines).

The E-Series products have been expanded and augmented through projects led by efficiency expert Lawrence Young under new management's direction. Young's innovations have expanded commercial applications of the technology that not only includes traditional lighting environments, but now extends to streetlights and other high-mast, high-bay installations, as well, where emerging technologies have yet to mature. With the advancement of the products, Premier can expand its markets, distributor networks, and alliances to grow dramatically, and the company is currently working on licensing this technology outside of the US.

Management is currently in talks with Young to formally bring him into Premier. Prior to Premier's acquisition of the Active ES assets and technology, Young was president of Active ES, Inc. Since that time, Young has served as a consultant to Premier and is expected to be instrumental in developing and implementing its future strategic plans.

The combination of delivering lower costs and budget certainty through deregulated power -- along with energy reduction technology like the E-Series Controls, LED and a complete lighting solutions array with our other energy conservation and management products, solutions and services -- is a business model Premier believes it is well suited to expand on and will produce shareholder value in the long term.
