SymPowerco Issues Government Grant Update

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - SymPowerco Corporation (PINKSHEETS: SYMW) CEO John Davenport today announces that the company's application for a series of development grants from a major North American Government Agency has entered the final application stage after having passed through a rigorous academic and industrial peer review. The first draft of the application was submitted by the company's majority-owned subsidiary, Polygenic Power Systems (PPS), in July, 2008.

Governments across North America are making grant moneys available for projects that meet various alternative power, energy and environmental criteria. SymPowerco's management believes that it is in the shareholders' interests for the company to make application for these grants, wherever appropriate.

Grant applications require the preparation and submission of extensive information including the current state of the technology, projected research and development objectives, projected costs of achieving these objectives, analysis of manufacturing requirements and analyses of the markets for which the technology is intended.

Stated SymPowerco CEO John Davenport, "It is in the interests of all of us that solutions are found to the energy and environmental crises we are facing. Funding is being made available for worthwhile projects that hold the promise of solving these problems. We believe that our Flowing Electrolyte Direct Methanol Fuel Cell is such a project and we will continue to pursue funding at the various available levels."

SymPowerco Corporation develops advanced fuel cell and power delivery systems for the rapidly growing personal transportation and portable power system markets being created by today's energy and environmental challenges.
