Axial Vector Rejects Buy Out Offer For Its Rare Earth Permanent Magnet Generator Division As Insufficient

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA--(Marketwire - October 18, 2010) -  Axial Vector Energy Corporation ("AVEC") (PINKSHEETS: AXVC), a developer of state-of-the-art green technologies, announced today it has rejected the offer to purchase its rare earth permanent magnet generator division as insufficient. The offer asked for all finished and under development generators, level two engineering drawings and intellectual property including patents and proprietary information.

The offer was for five million dollars in cash. AVEC has capital invested in excess of $4.3 million in this product.

As a result, the company has now received additional inquiries for buying or Joint Ventures with our generator division. Two additional NDAs (non disclosure agreements) have been signed for technical reviews.

The modern world hungers for electricity. Traditionally, this hunger was sated with predominantly constant-speed-regulated, synchronous generators. However, new demands require the stable, quick, lightweight and efficient delivery and control offered by new technology. AVEC permanent magnet generators are part of the next generation answer to that hunger.

The AVEC board did vote and agree to interview and retain an investment banking firm with regional China expertise to facilitate a road show for seeking stronger buy out offers or Joint Ventures which could allow rapid deployment and commercialization of the company's "Ultra High Efficient" generators. The generators have been tested at 98.4% plus efficiency.

The market for wind generators alone exceeds $10.8 billion and the total generator market is several times that. All investment banks interviewed to date agree that AVEC should consider partnering with one of the Chinese Special Economic Zones.

Special Economic Zones of the People's Republic of China are Special Economic Zones (SEZs) located in mainland China. The government of the People's Republic of China gives SEZs special economic policies and flexible governmental measures. This allows SEZs to utilize an economic management system that is especially conducive to doing business that does not exist in the rest of mainland China. The Government of the Peoples Republic of China has provided $34.6 billion for "Green Energy Investing" (more than twice that of the United States).

The most important component in AVEC generators is the rare earth permanent magnets. China is currently in control of a large majority of the permanent magnet supply both in ground and finished products. AVEC believes this provides a huge economic incentive to China for accessing rights to AVEC ultra efficient generator systems.

The Board has instructed management to work aggressively on getting the generators in commercial production in whatever manner will return maximum value to the shareholders.
