Hydrogenics Announces Strategic Alliance With CommScope

The transaction is subject to various conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals, which includes the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Global Market. The second, third and fourth tranches are subject to shareholder approval at a special meeting of Hydrogenics shareholders, which is anticipated to be held on September 28, 2010. The third and fourth tranches are also subject to the satisfaction by Hydrogenics of certain agreed upon product development milestones with respect to Hydrogenics' fuel cell business, which are expected to occur in the third quarter of 2011. No assurances can be provided that such product development milestones will be achieved by Hydrogenics.

The agreement provides, among other things, that CommScope will have certain participation rights and, subject to certain ownership requirements, will have the right to appoint one non-voting observer to the board of directors of Hydrogenics.

Hydrogenics and CommScope will also enter into an intellectual property license agreement on the closing of the first tranche, wherein Hydrogenics will grant to CommScope a license to certain intellectual property resulting from the transaction, which will only be exercisable by CommScope upon the occurrence of specified triggering events.

The material change report and definitive agreements will be filed by Hydrogenics on SEDAR and EDGAR.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
