CELEBRATION, Fla., April 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Power Group, Ltd. (Pink Sheets:IPWG), a provider of waste-to-energy solutions, including waste-to-energy development and waste-to-energy technologies, announced today that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved the formation of a new committee of the Board to pursue the Company's strategic options, with regard to a proposal from Green Energy Development, Inc. (GED), a company formed by David R. Ames, of Ames Enterprises, Atlanta GA, to acquire the Company through a merger for approximately $30 million of stock that would be listed on the AMEX, NASDAQ or similar exchange. Mr. Ames is the Chief Executive Officer of GED.

The Board committee consists of the Company's Chairman, Dr. Daniel Conte, the Company's CEO, John Benvengo, Board member Jerry Pane and Board member Robert Astore. The committee will negotiate a formal merger agreement with GED and make a recommendation regarding the formal merger agreement to the full Board of Directors, as it considers the Company's financial and strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value.

The Board of Directors also has commissioned the services of an independent valuation firm to determine the Company's fair valuation, inclusive of the Koryclska, Poland project and other opportunities available to the Company. The merger with GED will be subject to an agreed-upon valuation and shareholder approval.

If approved, John Benvengo, IPWG's current CEO will become part of GED's management team and continue his work with regard to the Poland project and assist GED in the development of future Waste-to-energy facilities world-wide.

CEO John Benvengo stated, "I believe the GED proposal brings great value to the IPWG shareholders and will enable IPWG shareholders to receive shares from a new entity that are fully registered with the SEC and listed on a more prominent exchange than we are on now. This will allow those shareholders who want to participate as on-going shareholders in an exchange-listed company to do so, and those shareholders who prefer to sell their shares to have an active market in a new company to do so as well. I look forward to working with the committee members to help bring this transaction to fruition."  Benvengo further stated, "GED is strategically and financially positioned I believe to assist me in fully executing on the Poland project we have worked hard to put together.  I also expect GED to afford me the ability to build shareholder value in projects well beyond the current Poland project."
