Global Power Announces Sale of Mechanical Solutions

Share:

Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC:GLPW) ("Global Power" or the
"Company") today announced the sale of its Mechanical Solutions segment,
which was comprised of its Braden North America, Braden Europe and
Consolidated Fabricators ("CFI") businesses, for approximately $43.3
million in cash resulting in net proceeds of about $41 million. The
businesses were sold to Innova Global Ltd., a portfolio company of
TriWest Capital Partners. Global Power has used the net proceeds of the
sale primarily to pay down debt.

Craig Holmes and Tracy Pagliara, Co-Presidents and Co-CEOs of Global
Power, commented, "We believe Innova makes an excellent partner for
Mechanical Solutions. With Innova's support, we expect the Braden
businesses and CFI will be in a better position to grow in their
markets. In addition, the proceeds from the sale enable Global Power to
reduce debt, strengthen our other businesses and capitalize on the
market opportunities that are being presented to us."

Following a $34.0 million prepayment of debt with the proceeds from the
sale, Global Power has $27.6 million in debt and $19.6 million in cash,
of which $12.2 million was restricted.
