CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 13, 2016 -- Maxim Power Corp.

("COMAX") and its parent, Maxim Power Europe B.V., to Vine Luxembourg SARL, an affiliate of Basalt Infrastructure Partners LP, for EUR47 million including the assumption of EUR23 million of net debt resulting in sales proceeds of approximately EUR24 million, EUR6 million of which is contingent on certain future events.
