Trans-Lux Poised to Light Up 2012

New LED Solutions, Aggressive Business Initiatives and Successful Reorganization Continue to Gain Traction

NORWALK, CT--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - Trans-Lux Corporation (OTCQB: TNLX) (PINKSHEETS: TNLX), a world leader in LED video display and LED lighting solutions, finished 2011 in a position which sets the stage for an improved showing in Q1 2012, enabling Trans-Lux to participate in numerous opportunities going forward. Under the management of J.M. Allain, President and CEO of Trans-Lux Corporation, who arrived on the scene almost three years ago, the company has re-emerged to reclaim its once coveted position as a leader in the digital display category. The addition of innovative TL Vision LED display technologies like 4mm Black and its new line of commercial/industrial TL Energy LED lighting products supplemented the company's TL InfoVision LED Digital Displays and Fair-Play by Trans-Lux scoreboards, further extending the Company's ability to deliver integrated solutions.

"We are no longer introducing the 'new' Trans-Lux. This is Trans-Lux, and we believe we're bigger and better than ever," said Mr. Allain. "We are providing LED video display solutions in some of the world's most spectacular venues, and partnering with leaders in the imaging field to further extend our expertise. We believe our successful restructuring enables us to compete in the biggest arenas with complete customer confidence."

Trans-Lux TL Vision LED video displays are already redefining the landscape for large screen systems as demonstrated by the 4mm Black LED system up and running in the Venetian Las Vegas' sports book. We believe the video wall is brighter, more vibrant and more detailed than any other sports book display system installed on the strip. So bright in fact that it's attracting the attention of casino management all over town. Trans-Lux has also completed numerous installations of TL Vision LED video displays around the world including the new Stock Exchange in Turkey.

Fair-Play by Trans-Lux scoreboards also continue to be an industry staple. Trans-Lux's recent partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology to provide scoreboards and LED lighting leverages the efficiencies of Trans-Lux's integrated solutions to deliver superior effectiveness and savings.

"There were numerous project wins during the second half of 2011 that we are now fulfilling in the gaming, sports and financial arenas. More importantly, we anticipate the successful attainment of several additional projects in the near future that will provide further testimony to Trans-Lux's extensive capabilities, engineering prowess and innovation," continued Mr. Allain. "Our plan is to light up 2012 with new business opportunities, and I am confident we can accomplish this goal."
