Active Power Begins New Business Model to Support Monetization of Intellectual Property and Create Long-Term Stockholder Value

Company Changes Name to P10 Industries Following Completion of Asset Sale

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2016) - Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW) today announced it is changing its name to P10 Industries, Inc., following the previously disclosed sale of substantially all of its operating assets and liabilities to Piller Power Systems, Inc. (formerly known as Piller USA, Inc.), a subsidiary of Langley Holdings PLC.

With the disposition now complete, P10 seeks to maximize long-term stockholder value through the monetization of non-core intellectual property assets not purchased by Piller and acquiring well managed, profitable businesses. The company's patent portfolio includes innovative thermal and compressed air storage technology, which can and has been used in critical backup power applications, for example.

"We are announcing a significant milestone in our evolution today," said Mark A. Ascolese, who is continuing with the company as president and CEO of P10. "With completion of the sale to Langley behind us, we will focus on monetizing our non-core patents and acquiring and operating profitable businesses. We are aiming to raise additional capital to support our ongoing working capital needs and acquisition strategy by the end of 2016. This capital should enable us to strengthen our balance sheet, aggressively market and generate value from our patents and begin acquiring well managed businesses, ultimately leading to greater shareholder value."

P10 anticipates its stock will begin trading on the OTC Pink Market, which is operated by OTC Markets Group, a centralized electronic quotation service for over-the-counter securities, on Dec. 1, 2016. P10 will trade its common stock under its new trading symbol "PIOI." The company intends to issue unaudited financial and operational summaries on a quarterly basis and audited financial statements on an annual basis.
