Legend Power Systems Inc. Reports Annual Financial Results for 2009

BURNABY, BC, Jan. 13 /CNW/ - Legend Power Systems Inc. (TSX.V: LPS) ("Legend"), is pleased to announce their annual financial results for 2009. "In our quest for success and establishment as a formidable player in the energy saving sector, we at Legend have focused for the past few months on transforming from our last stage of development. We have single-mindedly concentrated on our sales and marketing efforts to commence the next phase in Legend's history as a profitable entity and have made significant progress to that end. In that process, we have seen opportunities for our customers as well, to improve their bottom lines by achieving energy savings and thereby achieving our common secondary goals and objectives of contributing to a greener, more-efficient and sustainable environment," says Gerry Gill, Chairman and CEO.

    Operational Highlights for 2009:

    -   Following capitalization in September, we assembled professional and
        competent management and sales teams to execute the program.

    -   We eliminated debt so our financial position is healthy and secure,
        allowing for sales and marketing efforts to be properly funded. We
        also installed appropriate systems for monitoring lead generation and
        customer fulfillment.

    -   Our successful marketing program has resulted in an increased
        awareness of our technology, specifically for its simplicity, logic
        and effectiveness.

    -   Our consolidated audit and sales teams in Ontario have performed
        building audits in facilities resulting in proposals with the
        potential for sales being more imminent than ever.

    -   The measurement and verification process to document the savings and
        overall performance of the Electrical Harmonizer-AVR has been refined
        and is being implemented successfully.

    -   The Electrical Harmonizer-AVR continues to qualify for incentive
        funding in British Columbia. The BOMA (Building Owners and Managers
        Association) incentive funding in Ontario has recently doubled,
        substantially reducing the payback period for our customers and
        effectively defeating some ROI concerns in their purchase decision

    -   Our R&D program will continue to be partially funded with a grant
        from the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP), a division of
        the National Research Council of Canada, allowing Legend Power to
        assume leadership in the development of new and improved
