LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 22, 2013 - Cavitation Technologies, Inc. ("CTi") (CVAT) Berlin: (Stuttgart:WTC) announced today that the Desmet Ballestra Group ("Desmet"), CTi's strategic partner since 2010 and licensee of CTi's vegetable oil refining technology, has entered into another sales agreement in South America.

Desmet projects that the Uruguay system will be fully installed and operational by June 30, 2014, the end of CTi's fiscal year 2014.
Combined with previous systems sales in Argentina, Ecuador and Brazil, this Uruguay refinery marks CTi's seventh system installation in South America, a target region for the company. "The Company expects to receive $130,000 in revenue with the completion of this sale," stated Naum Voloshin, CTi's CFO/COO. "The Company has generated approximately $1.4 million in sales back log during the 1st quarter of fiscal 2014 alone. From a financial standpoint, our recent surge in system sales certainly puts us in a strong position for the remainder of the year. CTi just completed our strongest quarter with regards to booking new business and our long term goal of enhancing value for our shareholders."
Mr. Voloshin continued, "We are excited about our initial penetration into the South American edible oil refining and processing market. We believe our success is a combination of the benefits of our technology and our invaluable relationships with our licensees, the Desmet Ballestra Group and GEA Westfalia. They have been instrumental in exposing and marketing our technology to new customers around the world. We are grateful to have both of these internationally recognized industry leaders on our side.
