Avcorp receives notice of complaint from Cessna Aircraft Company

VANCOUVER, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Avcorp Industries Inc. (the "Company" or "Avcorp") reports that it has received notice of a complaint filed by the Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna") in the United States District Court (Kansas) pursuant to which Cessna seeks to vacate the November 16, 2012 arbitration award in favour of the Company. The arbitration panel awarded Avcorp $27.4 million, which, under the terms of the arbitration agreement between Cessna and Avcorp, is a final and binding award. It is the Company's belief and position that the complaint made by Cessna does not satisfy the narrow legal grounds on which the arbitration award could be vacated. The complaint was filed by Cessna on November 26, 2012 and the Company is required to respond within 90 days. The Company intends to vigorously pursue the confirmation of the arbitration award and the dismissal of Cessna's motion to vacate with the U.S. District Court.
