SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky Notifies Investors With Losses on Their Investment in Atlantic Power of Class Action Lawsuit and the Deadline of May 7, 2013 to Seek a Lead Plaintiff Position

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 21, 2013) - Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of investors who purchased Atlantic Power Corporation ("Atlantic Power" or the "Company") (TSX: ATP) (NYSE: AT) stock between July 23, 2010 through March 4, 2013.

The complaint alleges that during the class period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business practices and financial results. Specifically, the complaint alleges that: (a) cash flows the Company was using to pay a dividend payout were being funded by revenues derived from companies Atlantic Power was spending millions of dollars to acquire; (b) Atlantic Power's losses from operations were mounting, jeopardizing the Company's ability to maintain the outsized dividend payment; and (c) defendants knew that many of the Company's project contracts were scheduled to expire over the course of 2013, meaning cash flows from those projects would be substantially lower after those contracts ended, and unbeknownst to investors, Atlantic Power was not replacing those contracts -- further jeopardizing its ability to maintain the outsized dividend payment that was supporting its stock price. As a result of defendants' materially false and misleading statements, Atlantic Power common stock traded at artificially inflated prices throughout the class period.

If you suffered a loss in Atlantic Power you have until May 7, 2013 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
