Avcorp receives notice of appeal from Cessna Aircraft Company

VANCOUVER, June 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Avcorp Industries, Inc. (the "Company") 
reports that it has received a notice of appeal and a motion to stay execution 
filed by Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna") on June 7, 2013 in the United 
States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit (the "Court of Appeals") from 
the judgement entered against Cessna on May 8, 2013 by the United States 
District Court for the District of Kansas (the "District Court"). The 
judgement of the District Court affirmed the binding arbitration award made on 
November 16, 2012 in favour of the Company. 
The arbitration panel awarded the Company USD27.4 million, which, under the 
terms of an arbitration agreement between Cessna and the Company, was a final 
and binding award. On November 26, 2012, Cessna filed a motion in the 
District Court to vacate the award. On May 1, 2013, the District Court 
entered its Memorandum and Order which denied Cessna's motion to vacate the 
award, finding that Cessna did not satisfy the required legal standard. The 
District Court also granted the Company's motion to affirm the award and, in 
addition, awarded pre-judgement interest of approximately USD1 million. On 
May 8, 2013, the District Court entered final judgement in the Company's 
favour on the arbitration award in the aggregate amount of USD28.4 million. 
It is the Company's belief that Cessna's appeal from the judgement is without 
legal basis and that the judgement will be affirmed by the Court of Appeals.
