Maxim Power Corp. Announces Termination of Agreement to Sell Maxim Power (USA), Inc.

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- Dec 03, 2013 -- Maxim Power Corp. ("MAXIM" or the "Corporation") (TSX: MXG) announced today that Patriot Power Holdings, LLC ("Patriot"), an affiliate of Rockland Capital, has issued a notice to MAXIM to terminate the agreement to purchase 100% of MAXIM's ownership interest in Maxim Power (USA), Inc. ("MUSA") due to an outstanding regulatory inquiry by The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC").

MAXIM had previously entered into an agreement on August 5, 2013 to sell its interest in MUSA to Patriot, subject to regulatory approvals and certain closing conditions. As previously reported, MAXIM is responding to a FERC inquiry related to its offers to supply electricity to the ISO New England market. This process is continuing and MAXIM is fully cooperating with FERC. No formal proceedings or claims have been commenced against MAXIM and MAXIM is uncertain as to the timing and outcome of this process.

MAXIM is reviewing its position with respect to the notice of termination and the sale of MUSA. The net carrying value of MUSA on September 30, 2013 was $84 million, which included $16 million of cash that reverts to MAXIM on termination of the sale. MAXIM will also re-evaluate the ISO New England market as part of its strategic review considering tightening supply demand fundamentals and their potential positive impact on forward capacity prices and thus related asset valuations.
