AlumiFuel Power Corporation Updates Genport Transaction and Litigation Settlement

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - Early production stage hydrogen generation company AlumiFuel Power Corporation (OTCQB: AFPW) (the "Company"), announced today that the previously announced prospective transaction with Genport, srl of Italy is in the final stages of extensive due diligence. Under the terms of the transaction, AlumiFuel Power's and Genport's assets, Intellectual Property (patents and proprietary know-how), technologies, operations, and products would be combined and integrated into a new U.S. alternative energy corporate entity, NovoFuel, Inc. Upon successful completion of the due diligence, the parties expect to sign a definitive merger agreement through which each would own 50% of NovoFuel before any future financings. Capital raising options related to the prospective merger are under consideration by the parties. Following the merger, NovoFuel would have operations in The U.S. and Italy, and be in a position to pursue and capture backup and portable power applications and business opportunities in the U.S., Europe, and other regions -- multi-billion dollar markets. The parties believe that the synergistic combination of Genport's hybrid fuel cells, solar power systems, and lithium-ion battery packs, along with AlumiFuel Power's hydrogen generation systems, can bring powerful "green" capabilities to the global marketplace.

The Company also announced that a Settlement Agreement had been finalized with Wexford-UCSC II, L.P., the former landlord of its subsidiary AlumiFuel Power, Inc., and the matter has been settled.
