Hydro Invests in Flexible Thin Film Solar Cell Manufacturer

Hydro has entered into a securities purchase agreement with U.S. solar energy company Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. Hydro's investment in common stock of Ascent Solar will be USD 5 million.

FLEXIBLE: Solar modules made by Ascent Solar.

The private placement is subject to, and is expected to be completed at the same time as, an underwritten public offering of Ascent Solar common stock, which is expected to close on October 6.

The capital injection into Ascent Solar, which makes flexible thin-film solar modules, is intended to enable the company to ramp up its 30-megawatt thin-film production facility in Thornton, Colorado, in 2010.

Hydro currently owns approximately 35 percent of Ascent Solar's common stock and will remain the largest shareholder immediately after the private placement.
