Legend announces update on private placement and issues shareholder report

BURNABY, BC, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - Legend Power Systems Inc. (TSX.V:LPS) (FSE: XLE) ("Legend Power") announces that the non-brokered private placement of 3,750,000 units for total proceeds of $1,500,000 previously announced in Legend Power's news release of July 13, 2010 is not proceeding.

In addition, Legend Power issued a shareholder report commenting on its business development activities. The text of the shareholder report is as follows:

To Our Valued Shareholders:

In light of the recent decline in the company's share price we wish to

update you with the company's status and to provide you with relevant


Legend Power is moving forward at a good pace. We are making great

strides in our marketing program and have accomplished important

milestones in educating potential customers in different industries about

our technology. We are building relationships with large companies and

all the major utilities for future sustainable growth. These

accomplishments were made despite a less than ideal economic climate

which still continues to be in a recovery mode.

Our activities to date have left Legend Power better positioned for

future growth. We are continually updating our marketing strategy in the

face of challenges posed by the economic conditions. Our customers'

purchase decisions have been delayed or become limited not on the merits

of our technology or our capacity to provide customer service, but due to

economic restraints on capital expenditure. Despite that, we are

receiving orders for audits and installations. More importantly, these

continued installations have successfully proven savings for our

customers through our measurement and verification process, again

establishing that our technology is as effective as we have maintained.

The stock markets generally have been unsettled and erratic lately and

this condition combined with a short period of less frequent positive

company news has had a direct negative impact on our share price. We can

only surmise that the market is waiting for new sales news or new

financing plans, both of which are proceeding with due speed. We look

forward to sharing news on these fronts in the near future.

After almost nine years of research and development, we have started the

process of commercializing our technology. We are nearing completion of

our commercialization strategy and think you will be pleased to see the

results of our collective efforts in the near future.

Once again, thank you for your continued support.

Chairman and CEO
