|30.07.2010 - On the basis of the authorization granted at the Annual General Meeting held on October 7, 2009, the Board of Directors of PI Power International Limited (PI) decided on July 27, 2010 to make a capital repayment in cash to shareholders of EUR 0.40 for each eligible certificate. Thereby the total amount of all capital repayments distributed to the PI certificate holders hitherto increases to EUR 7.30 per certificate.
Oesterreichische Kontrollbank Aktiengesellschaft ("OeKB"), which holds 59,999,997 shares in the company on the account of certificate holders, will transfer the portion of the capital repayment received to the certificate holders by crediting the respective amounts to the account holding banks.

Trading ex-capital repayment will take place starting on August 9, 2010.
This third capital repayment follows the initial capital repayment amounting to EUR 4.40 per certificate at the beginning of June 2009, and the second capital repayment amounting to EUR 2.50 per certificate at the end of October 2009.
