THERMAL ENERGY FILES RESTATED 2010 ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND MD&A

OTTAWA, April 15 /CNW/ - Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSXV: TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) ("Thermal Energy" or the "Company") today announced that it has filed on www.SEDAR.com its restated financial statements and management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the year ended May 31, 2010, which includes the comparable results for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2009.

As announced by Thermal Energy on April 7, 2011, the restatement was initiated as a result of an error in the calculation of the value of goodwill and intangible assets acquired on the acquisition of Gardner Energy Management Limited ("GEM") at the balance sheet date. Thermal Energy's financial statements filed since the GEM acquisition have calculated the value of GEM's goodwill and intangible assets based on the historical exchange rate as at the purchase date. However, since GEM is a self-sustained foreign operation for accounting purposes, its goodwill and intangible assets should be revalued at the current exchange rate as of each balance sheet date.

As a result of the detailed analysis completed by the Company and its auditors in connection with the foregoing matter it was determined that a provision for future tax liability arising from the intangible assets acquired on the acquisition of GEM was also necessary. The future tax liability is the result of a difference in the accounting basis and tax basis of the intangible assets. To account for the excess of the accounting basis over the tax basis, a future tax liability should be recognized at the rate of corporate tax in the country of the foreign operation. The impacts of all required adjustments to the financial statements for the year ended May 31, 2010 and the comparable period ended May 31, 2009 are as follows:
