Validian Issues Year-End Update

OTTAWA, December 16, 2015 - Validian Corp. (OTCQB: VLDI), a leading innovator in cyber-security technology, today issued the following year-end update covering a series of developments that occurred at the Company over the past 14 months, its current marketing strategy and the estimated timing on revenue generation as well as what might be expected in the year ahead.

Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian, summarized the Company’s recent developments, while explaining the previous focus away from revenue generation, as follows:

"Since mid - 2013, Validian's management, channel partners, and technical advisors have stood firmly by the belief that the Company's private valuation would be increased greatly if the technology was advanced to solve major cyber security and communication issues on mobile, on enterprise and government servers and data bases, and in the memory on each, as well as to scale to large numbers, to multiple markets, and to be able to support going viral."

Validian's technology was advanced to support its migration to mobile on the Android operating system as of October 2014. Over the following 12 months, Validian has continued to make improvements to its technology that support an even significantly  higher valuation, some of which include:

    • Increasing the number of encryption algorithms on mobile to 26 when the world struggles to use only one.
    • Significantly increasing the connectivity and performance of mobile communications (i) by increasing the number of addressing configurations to 16 to cover every possible addressing scenario, and (ii) by increasing the number of roaming aspects to 5 to cover every possible roaming scenario. These capabilities do not otherwise exist in the mobile app world to date.
    • Perfecting secure Peer-To-Peer communications on mobile devices, which greatly enhances cyber security, eliminates a number of cyber threats currently plaguing mobile communications, and substantially reduces the cost of operations of communications.
    • Migrating 85% of its core technology to Linux and Unix, which positions it to secure enterprise and government servers and databases, as well as the memory on each.
    • Migrating 85% of its core technology to Apple O/S and iOS, covering the second largest mobile device market in the world.
    • Completing testing of, and an in-depth examination and review of every line of source code of, Validian's core technology, by a well-known and highly respected third party, to ensure the source code has been written properly and is of the highest quality. This is key to major mobile companies, large enterprises, and governments using and/or acquiring our technology.”

In addressing the Company's past absence of posted revenue, Mr. Benn stated, "It is important to point out that if Validian had decided to generate sales, cash flow and revenue earlier in our development, the resources of our small team, who is essential for continually innovating and advancing Validian's technology, would have been diverted and otherwise consumed. The full migration to, and support of, mobile that Validian has now achieved would have been monetarily and technologically impossible. Validian would not be where it is today - positioned to generate and support potential exponential revenue growth and to maximize its valuation."

Mr. Benn, on the Company's plans and outlook moving ahead, commented, "Now that Validian has completed these innovations and passed third-party testing, we are well-positioned to allocate the resources required to generate and support sales, cash flow, and revenue. It is important to note that Validian is poised to maximize the private valuation of its technology on a pre-revenue basis, and to further enhance that private valuation by now generating sales, cash flow and revenue.

As mentioned in a previous release, one of Validian's channel partners recently completed the Beta 1 of its Validian-enabled mobile communications and messaging app in November, which has features and capabilities not previously seen in the world to date. In the coming year, it will not only become a commercial application, but also and more importantly, it will roll out and generate revenue for both Validian's channel partner and Validian. This mobile communications and messaging app is an excellent demonstration of Validian's technology, including highly sophisticated features and capabilities not currently available in the market. Our other channel partners and prospects are demanding to use this technical demonstration and validation for their own marketing and sales efforts, resulting in a rapid acceleration and expansion of our sales pipeline during Q4 2015, for commercial roll out commencing Q1 2016.

Clearly, it is an exciting time for the Company! Validian is now uniquely positioned to rapidly Validian-enable platforms for Cloud, e-commerce and mobile devices, as well as the mobile, web and non-mobile applications on those platforms, for one or more major companies in the mobile sector.

In closing, thank you to our loyal shareholders for their patience, as we completed the innovations we needed to do, to get to where we now are. 2016 should be a significant year full of key developments in sales, revenue and cash flow that we have all been patiently awaiting. Stay tuned!. On behalf of the entire Validian family, best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a happy and prosperous New Year!
