VANCOUVER, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Avcorp Industries Inc. (TSX: AVP) (the 
"Company" or "Avcorp") is pleased to report that it has received the 
determination of an appointed arbitration panel constituted to adjudicate 
outstanding issues relating to cost reimbursements and compensation payable to 
Avcorp in connection with the transition of Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna") 
production work back to Cessna and other suppliers. The transition of Cessna 
production work was first announced by the Company on December 17, 2010 and 
immediately following notification by Cessna, the Company had attempted to 
negotiate compensation payments as contemplated by the Cessna Strategic 
Alliance Agreement (the "SAA"). Only when negotiations and mediation were 
unsuccessful did the Company refer the matter to binding arbitration. 
The binding arbitration award, delivered to the Company on November 16, 2012, 
determined that: the SAA was an exclusive agreement between Cessna and Avcorp; 
Cessna could not unilaterally transition production work from Avcorp; Avcorp 
had fulfilled the requirements of the SAA; and, Avcorp suffered damages as a 
result of Cessna transitioning production work from Avcorp. In addition, all 
counterclaims that were advanced by Cessna were denied. The quantum of damages 
was assessed by the arbitration panel at USD 27,391,372, which amount is 
payable to Avcorp within 30 days of the arbitration award.
