As part of this transition, the Company appointed Mr. Andrew Ingram to the position of Chief Financial Officer of ReD.  Mr. Ingram is a Chartered Professional Accountant who has over eight years' experience in the independent power sector, primarily with Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp.  Prior to that, Mr. Ingram spent over eleven years with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP working in their business recovery group on various corporate restructuring and insolvency cases.  Prior to his appointment as CFO, Mr. Ingram served as Executive Vice President of the Company

The Company also announced that key employees needed to advance ReD's contracted development projects will continue with the Company as it moves to complete the arrangement with Capstone Infrastructure Corporation ("Capstone") whereby Capstone will acquire all the outstanding shares of ReD by way of a plan of arrangement. Mr. Jeff Jenner, President and CEO of the ReD, will assist the Corporation through the integration period with Capstone.
