Blue Earth Adjusts Options to Comply With Nasdaq Continued Listing Rules

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - September 18, 2015) - Blue Earth, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBLU), an alternative/renewable power generation services company, announced today that on July 17, 2015, Blue Earth's shareholders approved a 4,000,000 share increase in the Company's 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the "Plan"). On August 17, 2015, Blue Earth entered into an employment agreement with G. Robert Powell, as Chief Executive Officer and a director, effective August 31, 2015. Under his employment agreement he was granted an aggregate of 3,500,000 options exercisable at prices increasing from $1.00 to $4.00 per share, vesting over the next four years. All of the terms of the options were fully disclosed by the Company on a Form 8-K filed on September 2, 2015. However, rather than using up 3,500,000 of the 4,000,000 newly authorized options under the Plan, which is exempt from Nasdaq's listing requirements, the Company decided to list 3,100,000 non-qualified stock options under the Employment Inducement Awards exemption from Nasdaq listing and issue the maximum 400,000 incentive stock options permitted under the Plan, necessitating this press release.
