 Finavera Wind Energy Receives Final $16.5 million Earn Out from Pattern Energy  VANCOUVER, July 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Finavera Wind Energy Inc. ('Finavera Wind  Energy', 'Finavera' or the 'Company') (TSX-V: FVR) is pleased to announce it  has received a final $16.5 million of consideration, primarily in the form of  debt forgiveness, from Pattern Renewable Holdings Canada ULC, a subsidiary of  Pattern Energy Group LP ('Pattern Development') as the final amount payable  under the Purchase and Sale Agreement for 184 megawatts (MW) of wind projects,  previously announced on April 29(th), 2013.  The final consideration has been  received earlier than the anticipated date in Q1 2015, based in part on the  successful development of the Meikle Project.  The $16.5 million consideration  is in addition to the $9.3 million previously received by the Company from  Pattern Development as previously announced on April 17(th), 2014.  The receipt of the final payment from Pattern Development was used primarily  to retire secured debt in the Company.  Combined with the recent sale of the  Company's remaining 10% interest in the Cloosh Valley Wind Project for €2.1  million, this transaction is another step towards a stronger balance sheet and  the ability to capitalize on new opportunities in the renewable energy  marketplace.  Further information on the Company's strategic plan will be  released in advance of the Company's AGM on September 12(th), 2014.  Jason Bak, CEO  About Finavera Wind Energy Inc.
