Newsfile Corp.

North Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 14, 2019) - Aurora Solar Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ACU) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received an order to supply a major China-based manufacturer of high-efficiency PERC solar cells with four DM-110e measurements systems. The systems will be shipped in June 2019.

Aurora's DM-110e was launched as a less expensive version of our DM product line, to address the price-sensitive market for the automation of manual sheet resistance measurements. The DM-100e is typically used by manufacturers for more limited testing after diffusion and, like all of our DM products, is a reliable non-contact system that prevents cell damage during testing, while providing high measurement accuracy and excellent repeatability.

"We are excited to have been awarded this initial business from a major new customer in Aurora's most important market," said Gordon Deans, Aurora's Chief Executive Officer. "This customer is one of the largest solar cell manufacturers in the industry, with aggressive expansion plans over the coming months. This order again validates our business strategy for the unique China PV market and continues to demonstrate the appeal of Aurora's products for manufacturers focused on cost-effective high yield PV cell production," he continued.
