Quasar Announces Changes to Corporate Management

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. (OTC Pink: QASP) (PINKSHEETS: QASP) ("Quasar" or "the Company")

Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. is proud to announce changes to the corporate management structure of Quasar. Donnell J. Vigil has officially been appointed CEO and she will continue to serve as President and Corporate Secretary of Quasar. In addition, Quasar would like to introduce a new and valuable addition to the Board of Directors of Quasar, Ms. Liann Francisco.

Liann Francisco has been nationally and internationally known in the field of electronic security, aviation and business management for over 27 years. Her expertise in developing and integrating technologies and deploying specialty projects has been used in developing industry standards. Ms. Francisco possesses extensive technical knowledge and has been frequently called by government agencies, customers and industrial consultants for advice on integrating electronic security and specialty systems. Her diverse customer base includes the government of Puerto Rico, the Department of Defense, Federal Bureau of Prisons, Federal Aviation Administration, multiple branches of military, numerous airports, critical infrastructure, water treatment, telecommunications, nuclear and conventional power generation, correctional facilities, and state and local government agencies. Ms. Francisco was co-owner and CEO of Unlimited Technology which became one of the top 50 security companies with offices and affiliate worldwide. Additionally, she was co-founder and President of Titan Security Group which was an innovator in the security software industry. Ms. Francisco was not only responsible for the business facet but also for the engineering, design, coordination and implementation of the companies' electronic security deployments. Because of her extensive knowledge of electronic systems application and security systems design she was personally requested to join an assessment team of experts surveying Russian protection of nuclear facilities in 2007. Ms. Francisco's ability to draw from a vast pool of technology resources enables her to develop custom, innovative solutions to satisfy complex customer needs and technical needs. Ms. Francisco's educational background consists of business, Engineering and aviation.

Ms. Francisco is currently in charge of the development, management and opening of the new FAA Part 141 flight school located in Pennsylvania. This location is being set up to conduct the training of foreign students to become commercial pilots. The location is waiting on the FAA to conduct its final inspection so it can officially open. Ms. Francisco will personally oversee all the flight operations and lead the expansion to South Florida. The FAA has recognized Liann Francisco with inclusion in the prestigious FAA Airmen Certification Database.

With Ms. Francisco's expertise and knowledge, Quasar's hydroponic grow stores and the future marijuana cultivation centers will be fully suited with top notch security internally and externally. This will be an added bonus to all dispensaries participating in the center. In addition to a fully equipped grow facility with grow specialist on hand it will surpass the current security requirements. Quasar will be solving two of the major problems being faced by dispensaries and grow facilities, lack of security and product. These businesses are continually being broken into and robbed and are having to turn away paying customers due to not having enough product to sell. Quasar will provide the answer to these problems and have the ability to realize capital from numerous dispensaries in each cultivation center rather than just one.

Please welcome Ms. Liann Francisco to Quasar, we couldn't be happier to have such a talented and knowledgeable individual join our Company. Quasar looks forward to expanding its expertise in its management to ensure we are successful in meeting our goals and bringing value to its shareholders.
