SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims on Behalf of
Investors of Maxwell Technologies, Inc. -- MXWL

NEW YORK, March 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford
Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of
Maxwell Technologies, Inc. ("Maxwell" or the "Company") who purchased Maxwell
common stock between April 28, 2011 and March 06, 2013 (the "Class Period").
Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at
rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

The investigation concerns whether Maxwell and certain of its officers and/or
directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

On March 1, 2013 the company announced: (a) Maxwell had overstated its
revenues and earnings in 2011 and 2012 and the financial statements should no
longer be relied upon; (b) Maxwell had reported revenues prior to the time the
sales price was fixed and/or collection was reasonably assured; and (c)
Maxwell's internal accounting controls were deficient and permitted the
premature recognition of revenue, leading to materially misstated financial
results (d) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements may
be materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
