Acceleware Announces Receipt of ABCP Settlement Funds

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 12, 2013) - Acceleware® Ltd. ("Acceleware" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AXE), a leading developer of high performance computing applications, today announced it has received a disbursement of $54,480 from third-party Asset-Backed Commercial Paper ("ABCP") settlement funds (all figures are in Canadian dollars).

This payment is pursuant to the ABCP settlement distribution plan announced by the Ontario Securities Commission and Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada in 2012.

The Company held an investment in third party ABCP with a face amount of approximately $1.4 million, which it acquired in 2007. The investment was made on a short term basis. However, due to liquidity issues experienced in and the collapse of the Canadian ABCP market in 2007, the Company continued to hold the investment into 2009. As liquidity developed throughout 2009, the Company was able to liquidate the investment for gross proceeds of $752,466 on December 9, 2009. The ABCP settlement funds were collected in enforcement settlements agreed to by certain investment dealers who sold ABCP products prior to the collapse of the market in 2007.
