SUPER VISION INTERNATIONAL REPORTS OPERATING RESULTS FOR YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1995; REVENUES UP 79%, GROSS MARGIN IMPROVES 13%

ORLANDO, Fla., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Vision International, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUPVA), a leading manufacturer of fiber optic lighting products, today announced operating results for the year ended December 31, 1995. Revenues were $2,538,459, an increase of 79% over the prior year. The net loss was reduced to $571,886, or a loss of $.30 per share, compared to a loss of $815,962, or $.53 per share in the prior year.

Management noted that increases in revenues were attributable in large part to the addition of international distributors during the prior year, and the Company's introduction of several now fiber optic lighting products. Additionally, sales of the Company's products in the domestic lighting and swimming pool lighting markets increased during 1995. Sales of standard products, as well as the introduction of several new products, helped improve gross margins, which increased 13% to 34% in 1995.

Commenting on the results, John Stanney, Chief Operating and Financial Officer of Super Vision, noted, "Our continued movement to a manufacturer of a full line of fiber optic lighting products, as opposed to a niche market of specialty lighting, allows us access to new markets and methods of distribution. The addition of key distributors and a concentration on expansion of domestic sales, coupled with our efforts to reduce manufacturing costs, affords us the opportunity to be more price competitive while improving gross margins."

Super Vision manufactures fiber optic side glow(TM) and end glow(TM) cables, light sources and point of purchase lighting products for the signage, architectural and swimming pool lighting markets.
