Active Investor and Media Outreach to Build Company Awareness

WOBURN, MA and ALBANY, NY (Aug 2, 2011) -  Magnolia Solar Corporation (OTCBB: MGLT) ("Magnolia Solar") announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Magnolia Solar, Inc., has hired The Investor Relations Group ("IRG"), a fourteen-year-old, award-winning, corporate communications firm based in New York City, to serve as its investor relations and public relations agency.

IRG's investor relations team will target specific portfolio managers and equity analysts in the global investment community to increase awareness of Magnolia Solar's development of high-efficiency, nanostructured, thin-film solar cells for the defense and commercial markets. Concurrent with that effort, the public relations team will initiate an outreach campaign targeting editors, writers, and segment producers of local and national trade and consumer online, print, radio, and broadcast media outlets worldwide.

"Magnolia Solar is focused on the creation of the next generation of thin-film solar cells, which will incorporate patent pending innovative solar cell designs as well as cutting-edge nanotechnology to ensure a power efficiency of 20% or higher, with a cost target of $0.50/watt, and the ability to harness a wider band of the electromagnetic spectrum than is presently feasible," commented Dr. Ashok K. Sood, President and CEO. "The Company is engaged in developing proprietary technologies that will be scaled up to offer an attractive, low-cost alternative for customers, in the US and in developing nations around the globe, who wish to harness the many advantages of solar energy. We look forward to working with IRG as we achieve our objectives and will update the investment community as we move ahead."

IRG's corporate communications program includes new media and multimedia initiatives that involve the creation of broadcast-ready corporate videos, podcasts, and the creation of social networking and video service accounts. The Investor Relations Group is a multiple winner of the "Stevie Award" for Investor Relations, and was named a finalist in the Best Media Website category from the 2009 American Business Awards.
