Validian Demonstrations Continue to Grow Sales Pipeline & Demand for Installations

OTTAWA, August 16, 2016 - Validian Corp. (OTCQB: VLDI), a leading innovator in cyber-security technology, today issued another marketing and sales update. Over the past 30 days, the ongoing exchange of marketing and technical documentation, discussions, meetings and demonstrations have doubled Validian's sales pipeline. Now, Validian has scheduled the next round of discussions and negotiations with senior decision makers of more than 20 qualified prospects, comprising large to major companies, during August, September and October 2016.

Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian, commented on the Company’s recent developments in marketing and sales, "We are very pleased to see the steady increase in momentum as we continue our march towards sales, cash flow and revenue during 2016. Large to major companies are consistently progressing from the analysis of our technical documents and demonstrations to negotiating the licensing of Validian's technology and installations for testing and integration. Demonstrations of completed cutting edge, Validian-enabled mobile and Cloud apps that show market differentiating features and capabilities not achievable by any other combination of technologies are generating strong demand. However, it is the speed of integration and low costs of operations that have the greatest impact on sales. Integration takes 2 to 10 days versus 11 to 24 months for standard crypto protocols. This enables the increasing number of companies seeking significant security enhancements to get to market much more quickly, which is a major catalyst to our growing demand and sales pipeline."
