SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolucia Inc., (OTCBB &OTCQB: ILED), replaces the Sunovia Energy Technologies, Inc corporate name and the SUNV stock ticker effective today as announced by FINRA. The new name and ticker underscores the company's leadership in the development and commercialization of high performance LED (light emitting diode) lighting systems, and connects the company more directly to the lighting products and brand that represent its core business.
"This is one of our first steps in the total rebranding and refocusing of the company and its product mix," said Evolucia Chief Executive Officer, Mel Interiano, "Evolucia brand equity is growing and our Evolucia Aimed Optics™ product platform has gained international recognition as a leading and award winning lighting technology. It makes sense to tie product and corporation under one brand and use a stock ticker that addresses our core business: intelligent LED lighting systems."
