Default Dynamic Worldwide + Daystar Technologies (Nasdaq: DSTI): Possible Merger/Acquisition

Shares of Daystar Technologies (Nasdaq: DSTI) closed up today on very heavy volume. DSTI was up 20% at $2.57 per share on volume of 1.7 million shares with no news. Smells like a merger/acquisition too me, especially after their CEO mentioned those magic words in a press release last week. I left a voice-mail for the CEO Magnus Ryde a few minutes ago, so stay tuned for a followup article when we get the facts from the horse's mouth. Also, the Company announced recently that it had been given the boot by their landlord for the office in Newark, CA and were looking at moving manufacturing operations offshore.

Daystar a development stage company, engages in the development, manufacture, and marketing of solar photovoltaic products to the grid-tied and ground-based photovoltaic markets.

In the press release, DSTI announced that it is pursuing a strategy for offshore manufacturing of its CIGS solar modules.

DayStar CEO, Magnus Ryde, commented, "While DayStar has accomplished significant innovations with our CIGS process and technology, we have encountered challenges in obtaining affordable capital for the build-out and operation of our facility in Newark, California. At this time, we are pursuing opportunities to manufacture our CIGS modules offshore and have begun discussions with several potential partners to implement this strategy. We are encouraged by the high caliber of the potential partners we are in discussions with. They understand the commercial potential for our CIGS modules and they bring substantial manufacturing and financial capabilities to the table. Those potential partnerships, if consummated, could include joint ventures, licensing agreements, contract manufacturing agreements, a reverse merger with or an acquisition of DayStar. We are confident in our core proprietary CIGS technology and believe that completing a transaction with a strategic partner and manufacturing our CIGS modules offshore would provide the best opportunity to bring our product to market and to manufacture the product in the most cost effective manner."

Mr. Ryde added, "In addition to the potential partnership discussions mentioned above, we disclosed on May 3, 2010 that DayStar entered into an agreement with Dynamic Worldwide Solar Energy LLC to provide DayStar with a series of loan commitments and at least one fully funded 25MW solar energy project. Under the terms of that agreement, Dynamic has proposed to assign to DayStar its interest in a fully financed contract to fabricate, construct and install, and commence the operation of, a 25 MW solar energy generation plant. We are actively working with Dynamic on these projects. If consummated, these projects will add a new 'downstream' dimension to DayStar and allow us to become a fully integrated solar energy company. DayStar's acceptance of the assignments is subject to applicable due diligence."

Daystar also disclosed in an 8-K that it was notified by its landlord, BMR-Gateway Boulevard LLC that the Company's lease for the premises located at 7333-7373 Gateway Boulevard in Newark, California has been terminated.
