Atlantic Wind & Solar Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AWSL) is pleased to announce that following its application to a West Virginia Court the company has received a court order to cancel all the shares issued as part of the acquisition of Hybridyne Power Systems Canada (HPSC) (www.hybridynepower.com (http://www.hybridynepower.com) ) and its applicable dividends.
Hybridyne Power Systems Canada Transaction
According to court filings:
In the HPSC acquisition, the existing 47.5% shareholders were to transfer their HPSC shares in return for the consideration. Despite the sellers receiving their consideration they simply refused to deliver the HPSC shares or to return the AWSL shares. Despite acting in good faith that the deal was complete and merely a lawyer's administrative delay on the set forth deal, it eventually became clear the sellers had no intent in releasing their HPSC shares. Despite numerous attempts to remedy the default, the Company had no choice but to seek a court order.
Total shares cancelled were 5,000,000 shares representing 3,000,000 shares plus the 2,000,000 in stock dividends.
Atlantic Wind & Solar's Chairman, Gilles A. Trahan stated, "We are pleased justice was served today and this chapter regarding the Hybridyne acquisition through the issuance of AWSL shares to its principals is now finally behind us. Although it was disappointing to have been the recipients of the many misrepresentation and actions in an attempt to expropriate shares and cash from AWSL, today's court order demonstrates that the laws do protect us from actions of this nature."
The company further intends to pursue the Hybridyne Groups of Companies including the Newcastle Solar farm for several hundred thousand dollars for the cash advances to its principals, Hybridyne suppliers and to the OPA to secure the FIT contract on Newcastle Site A 2 MW ground mount solar project.
