PureSpectrum, Inc. Releasing Fully Audited 2006 and 2007 Financial Statements

Documentation Critical as Company Prepares to Elevate Stock From Pink Sheets to More Established Exchange

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) is releasing fully audited financial statements for 2006 and 2007 to provide shareholders and prospective shareholders with a clear and accurate portrayal of the company's financial status.

The audit was completed by Hancock Askew & Co. LLP in Savannah, Ga., and the financial statements will be available for review at www.pinksheets.com or www.purespectrumlighting.com. PureSpectrum is a development stage company, and the financial statements reflect very low debt for an emerging technology company with significant expenditures primarily allocated to research and development.

As PureSpectrum continues its efforts to elevate its stock to a more senior, established exchange, PureSpectrum CFO Susan Norton said the audited financials are a continuation of the company's commitment to transparency and credibility.

"The decision to proceed with a full audit for 2006 and 2007 is an indication of the company's continued maturation and solidification during the past year," Norton said. "As the company attracts more interest from the institutional investment community, it has become clear that PureSpectrum needs to apply to trade on a more regulated stock exchange. We are now close to finalizing the process of collecting all of the necessary financial data from the company's developmental period in order to be prepared for that move up in exchange status."

Despite recent turbulence in the stock market, PureSpectrum's price per share has remained steady. PureSpectrum announced in the third quarter that the company will enhance revenue potential by initiating contract manufacturing arrangements for the company's unique dimmable Compact Fluorescent Lamps and dimmable linear fluorescent fixtures.

In anticipation of launching a global marketing campaign for both its technologies and products in 2009, PureSpectrum is strengthening its intellectual property by filing additional patent applications for a dimmable CFL bulb, a dimmable ballast for linear fluorescent fixtures and a dimming device for ballast-driven lighting applications. Additionally, the company has retained legal counsel in China for intellectual property protection and has begun the process of filing for international patent protection pursuant to the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

"I think it's important to recognize that PureSpectrum has exited the development stage and is now on the verge of making a sizable contribution to the lighting industry on a worldwide scale," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "Our technologies and products provide environmental and energy quality benefits that are in demand not just in the United States but in all countries trying to identify new energy conservation strategies."
