Gainey McKenna & Egleston Announces a Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit
Has Been Filed Against Active Power, Inc. -- ACPW

NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston
announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States
District Court for the Western District of Texas on behalf of those who
purchased shares of Active Power, Inc. ("Active Power" or the "Company")
(Nasdaq:ACPW), during the period between April 30, 2013 and September 5, 2013,
inclusive (the "Class Period").

The Complaint alleges that Defendants issued materially misleading statements
concerning Active Power's business, operations and financial prospects. On
April 30, 2013, the Company announced that Active Power had entered into a
strategic distribution partnership agreement with Digital China Information
Service Company Limited, which it described as "the largest IT solutions
provider in China," and that this partnership would allow the Company to
increase its revenues and profitability. Thereafter, on September 5, 2013, the
Company disclosed that the April 30, 2013 announcement was erroneous, and that
actually Active Power had entered into a partnership agreement with an entity
that is neither an affiliate nor a subsidiary of Digital China Information
Service Company Limited. Following this news, Active Power shares declined
$0.48 per share, or 13.71%, to close on September 6, 2013 at $3.02 per share,
on unusually heavy trading volume.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than
November 11, 2013. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf
of other class members in directing the litigation. If you wish to join the
litigation, or to discuss your rights or interests regarding this class
