-------------------------------------

It would be a good idea to review the filings and see for yourself some of the recent financing over the last few months. If you're familiar with convertibles and take note of how some of them have been restructured. I haven't calculated out all the interest and what not yet but I'm also not expecting very much until later in the year and certainly last quarter when they start more into their production. My strategy is watching the charts more than anything else but imo when they do start producing more and IF they manage to secure some fed guaranteed financing for the green or solar side it can only help. I'm not as wrapped about compensation, the timing of conversions concerns me more, having the dilutive effect on low volume days can really drag it down. And we aren't seeing that much volume. Then add in some analyst that thinks putting a "hold" call on a stock that is falling in price just baffles the crap out of me. Why not a "sell"? Other issues are looking at being de-listed because of their price. Keeping this on radar to see what happens imo would be prudent. I am on watch for a lower price because imo the analyst doesn't have a clue but the result is more people wanting out, also because of the delisting potential, and because chart wise it looks to head a little lower. Double bottom .58 if support holds. Some indicators like RSI suggest it could go lower but that's only my opinion. Long term I see some good potential and they have some good things in the works with solar and such. Do your DD and you can see all that they are involved in. Timing and how long you want to keep your money tied up are things I consider. Watching the chart for an entry and then flipping on the gain leaving some behind - pete and repeat eh? Best of luck in your decision.

Material Impairments


Item 2.06. Material Impairments
As a result of further indicators of potential impairment, the Registrant performed an updated impairment analysis as of January 31, 2009 of its intangible asset associated with its Strategic Alliance Agreement with General Motors in accordance with FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. Based on this updated analysis, the Registrant concluded that the current carrying value of the intangible asset was impaired. The Registrant estimates that it will record in its financial statements for the fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2009, a non-cash impairment charge of approximately $5.8 million, which amount represents the remaining unamortized balance of the intagible asset associated with the strategic alliance.

The Registrant determined that it was appropriate to perform the updated analysis and impair the intangible asset due to the continued deterioration in the US economy, in particular, the automotive industry, and the increased level of uncertainty regarding General Motor's ability to fund future hydrogen fuel cell projects as contemplated under the strategic alliance during the quarter ending January 31, 2009.

The Company will not be required to make any current or future cash expenditures as a result of this impairment charge.

"Jessie James approached Quantum for our world-class expertise in hydrogen and advanced powertrain engineering," explained Alan P. Niedzwiecki, the President and CEO of Quantum. "This, I honestly believe, is world-changing," Jesse James said of the emissions-free race car. "We can't rely on gasoline forever. I'm paying it forward."

Jesse James' record setting run was supported by 24 Quantum hydrogen injectors that fuelled an 8-cylinder engine that was optimized to yield 704 HP. Quantum's patented fuel injector has been designed, tested and validated specifically for precision fuel metering and durable service with cleaner burning, dry gaseous fuels such as hydrogen and natural gas. With several years of R&D, Quantum's gaseous fuel injectors are featured in Ford's hydrogen internal combustion engine vehicles and Prius and Escape hydrogen hybrid electric vehicles developed by Quantum.

The record-breaking Streamliner was fitted with 3 ultra-light weight, advanced carbon-fiber composite, polymer-lined 5000 psi Quantum hydrogen storage cylinders to help with vehicle performance and drivability. Quantum has supplied some of the lightest hydrogen cylinders in the world for weight-critical automotive and aerospace applications. Quantum has developed industry-leading 3600 psi natural gas on-board storage cylinders, and 5,000 and 10,000 psi hydrogen storage cylinders and related valves and pressure management systems.

The initial development of Jesse James' Streamliner was performed at Quantum's Advanced Vehicle Concepts Center in Lake Forest California. This facility is equipped with all disciplines and capabilities to take advanced powertrains and vehicles including hybrids, plug-in hybrids, hydrogen, and natural gas vehicles, from concept to production. Over the past decade, Quantum's expert team has developed and built 20,000 natural gas vehicles, 2,000 hydrogen and hybrid systems and vehicles, as an OEM, and also in partnerships with world's leading auto makers. Quantum has designed advanced hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles and powertrains for the US Army, and for Fisker Automotive, for the award winning Fisker KARMA, a luxury plug-in-hybrid car that was introduced at the Detroit International Auto Show in January, 2008.

IRVINE, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq: QTWW - News) today announced that it has successfully closed a series of transactions with its secured lender, WB QT, LLC ("Lender"), pursuant to which the Company: (i) received $3 million in additional debt financing structured as an 11.5% convertible note with a conversion price of $0.71, (ii) extended the maturity date on its Term Loan C, which has a current outstanding balance of $4.2 million, to August 31, 2010, (iii) amended its convertible note issued on January 31, 2008, which has a current outstanding balance of $7.2 million, by extending the maturity date to August 31, 2010, lowering the conversion price from $1.35 to $0.71, and eliminating the make-whole provision, (iv) exchanged its Term Note A, which had a current outstanding balance of $6.6 million and that was scheduled to mature on August 1, 2009, for a new 11.5% convertible note with a conversion price of $0.71 and a maturity date of August 31, 2010, and (v) amended and extended, for an additional 12 months, an unexercised $10 million commitment from its Lender.

{"s" : "qtww","k" : "c10,l10,p20,t10","o" : "","j" : ""} The new $3 million convertible instrument has a scheduled maturity date of August 31, 2010, unless the Company does not raise gross proceeds of at least $5 million of new equity before October 1, 2009, in which case the maturity date would be October 1, 2009. Notwithstanding this one condition, the Company believes the modifications to maturity dates and other payment provisions on all of the Company's existing debt instruments with its Lender results in the elimination of any requirement for the Company to use its cash or other working capital to satisfy any scheduled principal maturities, Lender principal demands or Lender conversions prior to August 31, 2010.

The $10 million commitment letter originally issued by the Lender on May 30, 2008 has been modified and extended through August 31, 2010. Under the terms of the new commitment letter, the Lender granted the Company an unconditional option to call on the Lender to make an additional $10 million investment in the Company, and the Company granted the Lender an unconditional option to make an additional $10 million investment in the Company. If the Company exercises its call right, then the Lender can choose to make the investment in one of two different investment structures: (a) a two year 12% secured note, convertible into common stock at a conversion price equal to market price of a share of common stock at the time of issuance of the convertible note, with the interest payable in common stock, or (b) a senior secured loan redeemable at 130% of face value after one year. If the Lender exercises its option to invest the $10 million, then the investment shall be in the form of a 0% secured convertible note with a conversion price equal to the market price at the time of issuance that is redeemable at 120% of face value after two years.

The Lender has the option to extend the maturity date on each of the convertible notes to August 31, 2013, in which case the interest rate on each of the convertible notes would be reduced to 9.5%.
