BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2014) - Novation Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NOHO) announced today that StarPoint USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Crown City Pictures, Inc. (OTC Pink: CCPI) (PINKSHEETS: CCPI), and an indirect subsidiary of NOHO, will distribute all-electric buses manufactured and assembled by GreenPower Motor Company, Inc. ("GreenPower"), based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (www.greenpowerbus.com). StarPoint has previously executed a Factory Direct Representative Agreement with GreenPower which appoints StarPoint USA as GreenPower's exclusive Authorized Factory Direct Representative for the sale of the GreenPower EV 350 and EV 350-MC all-electric buses, and all future models, for Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi and Puerto Rico. StarPoint USA also will seek approval from the US General Services Administration ("GSA") to sell GreenPower electric buses to a wide range of GSA accounts. 

GreenPower's EV 350 is an all-electric 12-meter (40 ft) transit bus incorporating lightweight battery packs providing for a range in excess of 250 kilometers (155 miles) on a single charge. Parts sourced from world-class suppliers like Siemens, ZF, Thermo King, Webasto, and Alcoa are used in the production of each GreenPower EV 350 bus. In a press release issued on March 18, 2014, GreenPower announced that "GreenPower anticipates the arrival of their first North American all-electric transit bus to land on US soil at the end of April 2014. In conjunction with their strategic distribution partner StarPoint USA, they have plans to demonstrate the all-electric bus to transit authorities nationwide including parts of Canada during a coast-to-coast tour."

"We are very excited about this news from GreenPower Motor Company regarding the delivery schedule for their first all-electric transit bus and we look forward to demonstrating it to transit authorities across North America in the coast-to-coast tour that starts shortly after the bus arrives in California next month," said Ben Rainwater, President & CEO of StarPoint USA. 

Phillip Oldridge, GreenPower's CEO, stated, "It has been a long road filled with many obstacles and challenges. Until recently, battery technologies were not advanced enough to support the long routes and demands required of public transit. Our EV 350 incorporates new advanced technologies with outstanding results! We look forward to working with StarPoint USA, Inc. to develop the US market for our all-electric transit bus."
