WindPower Innovations Announces Record Revenues From Its Recent Acquisition of Almost $1.5 Million for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2013

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - WindPower Innovations, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WPNV) announced its consolidated results of operations for the quarter ending June 30, 2013, which includes the results of operations for its newly acquired subsidiary, R.I.G. Construction, Inc., for the 10 weeks beginning on April 20, 2013 (acquisition date).

The Company reported revenue of $1.475 million dollars in the three months ended June 30, 2013 versus no revenue in the same period in 2012. WindPower reported a net loss of ($139,000) for the three months ended June 30, 2013 versus a net loss of ($38,000) for the same period of the prior year. This decrease is primarily attributable to the increased ongoing professional fees needed for the Company's public filings as well as those costs associated with the acquisition of R.I.G. Construction.

The Company's recent acquisition, R.I.G. Construction, Inc. D/B/A Cameo Pool's gross revenue increased by 25% over the same pro-rated period of the prior year and was primarily responsible for the gross revenue reported by the Company. On a net income (loss) basis, Cameo was virtually break-even during the reporting period versus a net loss of ($180,000) for the 29 weeks prior to being acquired and a net loss of ($439,000) for R.I.G.'s pre-acquisition fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. Cameo results showed considerable improvement both in gross revenue and net income since being acquired by WindPower.

John Myers, WindPower's CEO commented, "The results of operations for our recent acquisition are consistent with our business plan whereby we bring management expertise and resources to improve the companies we acquire. This we believe will enhance shareholder value over time."

Larry Duffy, Cameo's President stated, "I am very pleased with the level of attention and assistance the WindPower team has provided to Cameo and the changes are already evident in our operations and our results."

Kelly Anderson, WindPower's Chief Financial Officer added, "Now that we have assimilated our acquisition, we plan to focus on providing capital to Cameo to reduce its debt and use the leverage to negotiate more favorable terms from our vendors. Over time, this should improve margins, earnings and cash flows, as well as enable us to pursue additional acquisitions."
