NEW YORK, April 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky announces that a
class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court

The complaint alleges that during the class period defendants knew but
misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Exide was exposing
residents near its Vernon, California facility to dangerously high levels of
pollutants; (b) Exide knew that the Company would not be able to meet its debt
repayment obligations and other pledges and promises under a $200 million
revolving facility, a $675 million bond, and a $55.7 million floating rate
convertible note due in September 2013; and (c) as a result, Exide knew its
environmental liabilities, debt obligations and potential insolvency supported
neither its positive statements to investor nor its quarterly guidance.

On March 22, 2013, the Company's recycling facility in Vernon was cited by the
South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) as posing a substantial
cancer risk to residents of Southern California. Then, on April 3, 2013, Los
Angeles City Council members held a public hearing asking the government to
press charges against the Company to correct the health risk posed.

If you suffered a loss in Exide you have until June 14, 2013 to request that
the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery
doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional
