NEW YORK, April 8, 2013

NEW YORK, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is
investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Exide
Technologies ("Exide" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: XIDE), concerning whether the
board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On March 22, 2013, a government agency published a health risk assessment of
emissions from the Company's recycled lead battery smelting facility in
Vernon, California. According to the assessment, the facility exposed workers
and residents living in the area, part of the Los Angeles metro region that is
home to millions of people, to potentially cancerous levels of arsenic.

On April 3, 2013, a Los Angeles City Council committee directed the Los
Angeles City Attorneys' office to take action to require Exide to address the
pollution concerns immediately. By market close the next day, Company stock
had dropped nearly 50% on this news.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached
its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or
committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
