Quantum Technologies Closes Phase 1 Of Trout Creek Wind Farm Sale

LAKE FOREST, Calif., Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Schneider Power Inc. and certain of Schneider Power Inc.'s wholly-owned subsidiaries, closed Phase 1 of the previously announced sale of Schneider Power's 10 Megawatt (MW) Trout Creek wind farm development project (the "Trout Creek Project") on September 18, 2013. 

As previously announced, the sale of the Trout Creek Project will occur in two phases.  The Phase 1 closing resulted in the purchaser acquiring 74.9% of the ownership interests in the Trout Creek Project for an aggregate purchase price of Canadian Dollar (CAD) $1,207,959, of which CAD $966,916 was paid in cash and CAD $241,403 was paid by the purchaser's assumption of certain Trout Creek Project liabilities.  The closing of Phase 2 of the transaction is projected to be completed in 18 to 24 months, subject to the project achieving commercial operation.  The Phase 2 transaction, if completed, would provide additional cash proceeds of approximately CAD $1.1 million in exchange for the purchaser acquiring the remaining 25.1% of the ownership interest in the Trout Creek Project.  

Pursuant to the terms of the definitive agreements, the purchaser will be solely responsible for all development costs and expenses related to the Trout Creek Project.

"We continue to make strides in monetizing Schneider Power wind farm assets," stated Brian Olson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quantum.  Mr. Olson continued, "As previously announced, it remains our intent to complete the disposition of all of Schneider Power's operating assets and development projects."
