Capstone to Present at Jefferies 11th Annual Industrials Conference in New York

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Aug. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer, will present at the Jefferies 11th Annual Industrials Conference in New York City on Monday, August 10 at 10:40 a.m. EDT.

Institutional investors interested in scheduling a one-on-one meeting with management that day are encouraged to contact their Jefferies representative, or call Cheryl Schneider at 212-825-3210.

Capstone posted its first quarter fiscal 2016 earnings yesterday with total revenue of $27.0 million, up 16% compared to the same quarter a year ago with margins improving 200 basis points over the same period last year.

"We are off to a great start for the new fiscal year, with revenue rebounding as we recorded our second-best Q1 revenue in our company's 20-year history. We continued to experience strong revenue from our aftermarket service business and benefitted from strength in our combined heat and power (CHP) business, as the energy efficiency market continues to grow worldwide," said Darren Jamison, Capstone President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Our efforts to increase our geographical diversification are also paying off; we are making good progress in developing our markets in Australia, Mexico, South America, Africa and the Middle East. These efforts come as we strive to build upon our business in areas with greater opportunities while minimizing our current exposure in Russia. We believe our recently announced commitment by our global distributors to add 100 salespeople by the end of this calendar year and our increased marketing campaign will strengthen our efforts to capture additional market opportunities," added Jamison.
