Craig Hallum Cites GreenMan Technologies as a Company Expected to Benefit From Pending Senate Energy Bill

CARLISLE, IA--(Marketwire - July 29, 2010) -  GreenMan Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: GMTI) was among 6 public companies mentioned in a research update issued by Craig Hallum on July 28, 2010 as expected to benefit from natural gas legislation within the U.S. Senate's pending Clean Energy Jobs And Oil Company Accountability Act. 

Robert Brown, Senior Research Analyst at Craig Hallum, commented: "Details of the pending Senate Energy bill (now the Clean Energy Jobs And Oil Company Accountability Act) were released last night. The bill includes over $4 billion in new incentives for the adoption of natural gas vehicles including: (1) a doubling of the current per-vehicle tax credits -- both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles; (2) new grants for refueling stations; and (3) a loan program for the cost of expanding manufacturing of alternative fueled vehicles and components. This is better than we had expected, particularly the station grants and light-duty incentives."

He further stated, "We believe this new support for natural gas vehicles will help drive adoption and is very positive for publicly traded companies in the space." GreenMan was cited as one of six public companies highlighted in the update, positioned to benefit from the pending legislation. 

GreenMan's American Power Group Subsidiary provides a cost-effective dual fuel technology that allows vehicular and stationary diesel engines to run on a mixture of diesel and natural gas. The technology is unique because it provides an inexpensive energy and emission reducing retrofit solution targeting the over 5 million heavy duty trucks and buses in operation today in the United States.

Craig Hallum has not received investment banking revenue from GreenMan. Craig Hallum may seek compensation for investment banking services from GreenMan in the future. Craig Hallum does not provide formal research coverage of GreenMan.
