Locus Technologies Wins Environmental Business Journal’s 2011 Business Achievement: Information Technology Award

Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Locus for Record Sixth Time for Growth and Innovation

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., 23 January 2012 — Locus Technologies (Locus) announced today that
Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ) granted the company the award for Information Technology in
the environmental and energy industry for the sixth time in last 10 years. No other company has earned
this prestigious ranking in Information Technology more than three times in the past 10 years.
Locus is one of 50 companies EBJ has honored for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project
designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions, and industry leadership in
2011. Locus was recognized for its continued innovation and ability to predict market shifts from data
management exclusively at environmentally impacted sites, to carbon, to energy, and finally water quality
management for business operations in general.

Specifically, Locus Technologies stood apart from the industry for achieving 56 percent revenue growth in
2011 and a 20 percent increase in staff. Locus won a significant multi-year contract to manage more than
40 years of environmental data at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Los Alamos National Laboratory
Locus also signed up DOE’s Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 1 in southern California, expanding Locus’s
DOE customer base. Locus opened a new office in Asheville, North Carolina, and established a GIS
center of excellence. New customers in 2011 included Kodak, Arizona Public Service, Southern California
Edison, Energenic, Roca Honda, and multiple mining customers, such as Stillwater, Denison, Geovic, and
Strathmore.

Locus also entered a new market, the food industry, signing up such companies as Del Monte Foods,
Safeway, and Sugar Cane Growers. Locus entered into a strategic business alliance with
ChemADVISOR, Inc. that will provide Locus customers with direct access to a world-class chemical
database for environmental compliance, regulatory frameworks, and waste disposal needs. Locus also
introduced what it is referring to as the industry-first iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch application for field data
collection, called eWell.

“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low
single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology
development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San
Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal. “Locus continues to influence the industry with its
forward-thinking product set and eye for customer needs.”

“We are very pleased to be selected for the sixth time for the prestigious EBJ Information Technology
award in environmental business. No other company has accomplished anything close to this level of
recognition,” said Neno Duplan, President and CEO of Locus. “And I think the reason is that no other
company comes close to matching Locus’ domain knowledge, longevity, and depth of experience in
developing integrated environmental and energy enterprise software in the Cloud. The culture here is to
put the customers first at all times and lower their operational costs while addressing global concerns
around sustainability and climate change. My hat is off to our incredibly dedicated team of developers and domain experts. This honor goes to them and I thank and congratulate the entire Locus team and our customers who entrusted Locus to put their data in the Cloud to make this world a better place.” The Environmental Business Journal is a business research publication that provides high-value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry. The 2011 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit X in Coronado, Calif., March 14-16, 2012. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day event hosted by EBI Inc.
