Zug/Switzerland, 22 July 2013  -  iQ Power AG (ISIN: CH0020609688, German
Securities Code Number (WKN): A0DQVL; ISIN: CH0199540599 / German
Securities Code Number (WKN): A1J7TW), a developer and marketer of
technologies for environmentally friendly and technologically leading
starter batteries for motor vehicles and licences in these technologies,
provides a status report on its ongoing 2013 operations.

The Licensee, Smart Battery Inc., NYC. NY., USA, has started the first
deliveries of the batteries with iQ Power technology. According to company
sources, the first deliveries take place this week to dealers in the
network of Battery Energy, one of the largest battery distribution groups
in North America. At the beginning, the deliveries will be limited to the 2
most popular North American battery sizes, but in the following timeframe
all types for a full product program will be available. Management
confirmed their sales forecast for the rest of 2013 of over 250.000 units.

The Board of Directors of iQ Power Asia has on the 19th of July officially
granted a Sub-License for the up until now exclusive territory of Asia. The
Sub-License will allow Discover Energy Limited (DEIL), Hong Kong, to be
able to market batteries with the iQ Power Technology throughout Asia. DEIL
will source the batteries from a long-time, high capacity battery supplier
plant as well as iQ Power Asia. The battery supplier can fulfil all orders
should iQ Power Asia not be able to meet the capacity demands of DEIL on
time. DEIL has a license agreement in place with iQ Power AG at the same
conditions as with other Licensees. DEIL has already orders from 3 new
large customers. Further new orders as well as orders from existing
customers are expected soon. The sales can take place as soon as the new iQ
Power 2nd Generation plastic parts are available, which should be at the
end of September. As part of the agreement, iQ Power Asia is allowed to
market the batteries directly in Europe.

The re-start of the iQ Power Asia facility has been unclear since late
2012. New developments point to an agreement in August, which would allow a
normalization of production and sales in October. The first steps for
normalization should begin in the next couple of weeks.

The production of tooling for the important iQ Power plastic parts has
started as planned. The delivery of parts should begin by the end of
September. Tooling tests and production release for all European (DIN) and
Asian (JIS) passenger car sizes should be finished in September. The unique
inorganic Product marking material has passed its first tests successfully.

As earlier announced, the next part of the Capital Increase from early 2013
should be accomplished by the 2 largest shareholders at the end of August.
