Section 1- Registrant’s Business and Operations
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

As previously disclosed, Mark A. Ascolese, President and Chief Executive Officer of Active Power, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), earned $481,950 under the Company 2015 Management Incentive Plan. After considering input from Mr. Ascolese, the compensation committee of the board of directors of the Company (the “Compensation Committee”) determined to defer all cash payments under the 2015 Management Incentive Plan for Mr. Ascolese and James A. Powers, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, until a later time to be determined in the Compensation Committee's discretion.

On October 27, 2016, the Compensation Committee determined that the deferred amount would be paid to Mr. Ascolese and Mr. Powers upon receiving shareholder approval of the closing of the transactions contemplated by the previously disclosed Asset Purchase Agreement by and among the Company, Langley Holdings plc (“Langley”) and Piller USA, Inc. (“Buyer”) and upon the Board of Directors approval of a transaction securing additional capital to support the future business strategy. However, the Compensation Committee determined that the amount owed to Mr. Ascolese would be paid as follows: 50% in cash ($240,975); and 50% in shares of the Company’s common stock, at a price per share of $1.30 per share, the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the last trading day of 2015 (185,365 shares). The shares to be issued to Mr. Ascolese have a value of approximately $38,927, based upon the closing price of the Company’s common stock on November 1, 2016. The combined cash and share value would amount to $279,901 representing a 42% decrease to the value of the incentive payment due to Mr. Ascolese.

“estimate,” “project,” “intend” and other similar expressions, among others. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, any or all of our forward-looking statements may prove to be incorrect. Consequently, no forward-looking statements may be guaranteed and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by such forward-looking statements will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, the Company or its business or operations. Factors that could cause our actual results to differ from those projected or contemplated in any such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following factors: (1) the risk that the conditions to the closing of the proposed transaction are not satisfied (including a failure of the stockholders of the Company to approve, on a timely basis or otherwise, the proposed transaction); (2) litigation relating to the proposed transaction; (3) uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the proposed transaction and the ability of each of Langley and the Company to consummate the proposed transaction; (4) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts the current plans and operations of the Company; (5) competitive responses to the proposed transaction; (6) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the proposed transaction; (7) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement of the proposed transaction; and (8) legislative, regulatory and economic developments. The foregoing review of important factors that could cause actual events to differ from expectations should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including the risk factors included in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, and our more recent reports filed with the SEC. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of the communication in which they are contained. The Company can give no assurance that the conditions to the proposed transaction will be satisfied. Except as required by applicable law, the Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statement, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
