SHELTON, CONNECTICUT and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2011) - OPEL Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPL) ("OPEL" or "the Company"), a leading global supplier of high concentration photovoltaic ("HCPV") solar panels, solar tracker systems and a semiconductor device and process developer, announces that OPEL is aware of no material change in the position of the Company that would result in the current decline in share price, apart from the uncertainty in the general economic environment.


Over the past few weeks, OPEL has been aware and followed with interest certain trading patterns, such as the selling of small amounts of volume into bids every 15 minutes, over a that period. We are justifiably concerned about the trading patterns and the effect on our shareholders. We will continue to monitor the trading patterns.

OPEL management would like to reassure its stakeholders that our business plan continues as presented to shareholders in our last Annual General Meeting and Quarterly Report and that Company initiatives have the full backing of the Board of Directors. The Company is looking forward to releasing further updates in the near future as current initiatives close.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
