Class Action Launched Today regarding Atlantic Power Corporation (TSX: ATP) 
TORONTO, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Merchant Law Group LLP launched a class action 
today with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, seeking to recover hundreds 
of millions of dollars in damages on behalf of Atlantic Power Corporation 
shareholders (as well as holders of Atlantic Power Corporation's debt 
"Atlantic Power Corporation has experienced a dramatic recent loss in share 
value. ATP shares have fallen from a 52-week high of C$15.12 to trading today 
at below C$5.40. Canadians who own ATP shares have lost hundreds of millions 
of dollars in share value as a result." said Evatt Merchant, regarding the 
Canadian ATP litigation being handled by his law firm. 
As stated in the litigation, Atlantic Power Corporation repeatedly emphasized 
in statements to the market that its previous dividends would be "sustainable 
into 2016 before considering any positive impact from potential future 
acquisitions or organic growth opportunities". Notwithstanding those previous 
statements, shareholders have recently seen the dividend paid on their shares 
slashed by more than half. 
The litigation launched today is the first shareholder class action filed 
against Atlantic Power Corporation in Canada, and Atlantic Power Corporation 
is also facing several major class actions in the United States.
