iQ Power AG resolves a new Rights Issue due to technical difficulties with

  - New Rights Offering due to technical problems with the Korean financial
    institutions

  - Fast conclusion to Capital Increase through Rights Issue in October

  - Good participation from Korean shareholders anticipated

Zug/Switzerland, 8 October 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 the current capital increase for the voting and
dividend preference shares (WKN A0DQVL / ISIN CH0199540599).

The capital increase was well-received by the Korean shareholders, under
the leadership of Won-Lak Choi, Board member of iQ Power AG. For the first
time, CEO Sullivan met with the current Korean shareholders on September
11th in Seoul. The responsible Director of Discover Energy, licensee and
major shareholder of                        iQ Power AG, also took part in
the meeting and explained the great sales potential of the iQ Power
technology.

The delay in participation is solely due to technical issues. BankM gave
the following statement to explain the situation. 'The delay was caused by
difficulties arising from the Settlement procedures of the Korean central
securities administration, KSD.' The delay in reporting the situation arose
due to the necessity of making sure all regulatory procedures could be
realized before giving out an official statement.

In order to meet the requirements of KSD, iQ Power will conduct a new
rights issue. Assuming the approval of the Board of Directors, the rights
issue will be from October 11th to October 25th followed by the private
placement. Although the capital increase is aimed at the Korean
shareholders, due to stock exchange and legal regulations all shareholders
will be able to participate.

The conclusion of the capital increase is required prior to the listing of
the voting and dividend preference shares (WKN A0DQVL / ISIN CH0199540599)
on the stock exchange in Germany. After the listing, the preference shares
will be able available for trading on the exchange.
