FOR FILING PROOFS OF CLAIM AGAINST THE DEBTORS
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT:
On October 16, 2012, the debtors and debtors in possession in the above-captioned jointly administered case
(each a “Debtor” and collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the
United States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101-1532 (the “Bankruptcy Code”), in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The names of the Debtors and their respective addresses, case numbers,
and federal tax identification numbers are set forth in the chart below.
DEBTOR ADDRESS CASE NO. EIN #
A123 Systems, Inc. 200 West Street, Waltham, MA 02451 12-12859 04-3583876
A123 Securities Corporation 200 West Street, Waltham, MA 02451 12-12860 42-1655388
Grid Storage Holdings LLC 200 West Street, Waltham, MA 02451 12-12861 N/A
The Bankruptcy Court has entered an order (the “Bar Date Order”) establishing deadlines to file proofs of claim
for all claims against the Debtors that arose prior to the Petition Date of October 16, 2012, excluding claims pursuant to
Bankruptcy Code Section 503(b)(9) (a “503(b)(9) Claim”).
As to 503(b)(9) Claims against the Debtors, the Bar Date Order establishes a deadline to file requests for
payment with respect to such claims. If you believe you hold a 503(b)(9) Claim, information as to the deadline and
procedure for asserting such claim is available at www.loganandco.com, along with a 503(b)(9) Request for Payment
form that you are invited to use.
You should not file a proof of claim if you do not have a claim against the Debtors. The fact that you
received this Notice does not necessarily mean that you have a claim or that either the Debtors or the Bankruptcy
Court believe that you have a claim.
Pursuant to the terms of the Bar Date Order, and except as otherwise provided herein, each person or entity
(including, without limitation, each individual, partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, corporation, estate,
trust, or governmental unit) that holds or asserts a claim against any of the Debtors must file a proof of claim with original
signature, substantially conforming to the proof of claim form included herewith (a “Proof of Claim”), so that it is
actually received by Logan & Company, Inc. (“Logan”), the court-approved claims and noticing agent in these chapter 11
cases (the “Claims and Noticing Agent”), on or before the applicable deadline, as set forth below. Proofs of Claim sent
by first-class mail, overnight delivery or via hand-delivery must be sent/delivered to the following address:
A123 Systems, Inc.
Claims Docketing Department
c/o Logan & Company, Inc.
546 Valley Road,
Upper Montclair, NJ 07043
To be properly filed, a Proof of Claim must state and be filed against the specific Debtor against which the
creditor holds or asserts a claim. For example, if a creditor holds or asserts a claim against A123 Systems, Inc., the Proof
of Claim must specify A123 Systems, Inc. If the creditor fails to specify the Debtor against which its claim is asserted,
the claim shall be deemed to be asserted against A123 Systems, Inc. and the creditor shall have no rights against any other
of the Debtors. If a creditor wishes to assert a claim against more than one Debtor, separate Proof of Claim forms must be
filed against each applicable Debtor and each Proof of Claim must specify the Debtor against which the claim is asserted.
The names of the Debtors are set forth in the chart above.
In addition to stating the Debtor against which it is filed, a proper Proof of Claim must (a) set forth with
specificity the legal and factual basis for the alleged claim; (b) include supporting documentation (if voluminous, you may
attach a summary) or an explanation as to why such documentation is not available; (c) be denominated in lawful currency
of the United States as of the Petition Date; and (d) be signed by the creditor or by an authorized agent of the creditor.
Please note that the address included on the Proof of Claim, or the address separately provided by the creditor on
the Proof of Claim, will be used for purposes of service of any objection to the asserted claim, and such service will be
sufficient under Bankruptcy Rule 7004.
Proofs of Claim will be deemed timely filed only if actually received by Logan on or before the deadline
associated with such claim (the “Bar Date”). Further, Logan will not accept Proofs of Claim sent by facsimile,
telecopy, e-mail, or other electronic submission, and such claims will not be deemed to be properly filed claims.
General Bar Date. Except as otherwise provided herein, each person or entity, holding or asserting a claim
against one or more of the Debtors that arose prior to the Petition Date (excluding a 503(b)(9) Claim) must file a Proof of
Claim so that it is actually received by Logan on or before January 14, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) (the “General
Bar Date”).
Governmental Unit Bar Date. Each governmental unit holding or asserting a claim against one or more of the
Debtors that arose prior to the Petition Date must file a Proof of Claim so that it is actually received by Logan on or before
April 15, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).
Amended Schedules Bar Date. If, on or after the date on which the Debtors serve this Notice, the Debtors
amend their schedules of liabilities (the “Schedules”) (i) to reduce the undisputed, noncontingent, and liquidated amount
of a scheduled claim, (ii) to change the nature or characterization of a scheduled claim or the Debtor against whom the
claim is scheduled, or (iii) to add a new claim to the Schedules, the affected creditor, if it disagrees with the amendment or
supplement and has not previously filed a Proof of Claim with respect to such claim, is required to file a Proof of Claim in
respect of the amended or new scheduled claim so that the Proof of Claim is actually received by Logan on or before the
later of (i) the General Bar Date (for claims of persons or entities other than Governmental Units), (ii) the Governmental
Bar Date (for claims of Governmental Units), or (iii) 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the date that is twenty-five (25) days
after service of a notice on an affected creditor of an amendment or supplement to the Schedules.
Rejection Bar Date. A Proof of Claim relating to a Debtor’s rejection of an executory contract or unexpired
lease pursuant to a Court order entered prior to the applicable Debtor’s plan of reorganization or liquidation must be filed
so that it is actually received by Logan on or before the later of (i) the General Bar Date or (ii) twenty-five (25) days after
the date on which rejection of such executory contract or unexpired lease becomes effective. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, if you are a party to an executory contract or unexpired lease and you wish to assert a claim on account of
unpaid amounts accrued and outstanding as of October 16, 2012 pursuant to that executory contract or unexpired lease
(other than a rejection damages claim), you must file a Proof of Claim for such amounts on or before the General Bar Date
unless an exception identified below applies.
For purposes of the Bar Date Order and this Notice, the term “claim” means (i) any right to payment, whether or
not such right is reduced to judgment, liquidated, unliquidated, fixed, contingent, matured, unmatured, disputed,
undisputed, legal, equitable, secured, or unsecured; or (ii) any right to an equitable remedy for breach of performance if
such breach gives rise to a right to payment, whether or not such right to an equitable remedy is reduced to judgment,
fixed, contingent, matured, unmatured, disputed, undisputed, secured, or unsecured as of the Petition Date.
The following persons and entities need NOT file a Proof of Claim:
(a) any person or entity that has already filed a Proof of Claim with either the Claims and Noticing Agent or
the Clerk of the Court for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, which
substantially conforms to the Proof of Claim form or Official Form 10;
(b) any person or entity (i) whose claim is listed in the Schedules or any amendments thereto and (ii) whose
claim is not described therein as “disputed,” “contingent” or “unliquidated” and (iii) who does not dispute
the amount, nature and priority of the claim as set forth in the Schedules (including that the claim is an
obligation of the specific Debtor against which the claim is listed in the Schedules); provided, however,
that if any such properly scheduled claim is a 503(b)(9) Claim, a 503(b)(9) Request for Payment must
nevertheless be filed;
(c) a holder of a claim that has previously been allowed by order of the Bankruptcy Court;
(d) any person or entity whose claim has been paid in full by any of the Debtors, unless such payment was
made pursuant to a “first day” payment program that requires the filing of a proof of claim
notwithstanding payment;
(e) the Debtors or any affiliates of the Debtors; or
(f) a holder of a claim allowable under Bankruptcy Code Sections 503(b) and 507(a)(2) as an expense of
administration of the Debtors’ estates; provided, however, that any person or entity that has a 503(b)(9)
Claim must file a 503(b)(9) Request for Payment on or before the 503(b)(9) Bar Date.
If you are a holder of a debt security issued by the Debtors under an indenture, you may rely on the indenture
trustee to file a Proof of Claim for the principal and interest due on such debt security and you need not file an individual
Proof of Claim solely to assert your holding or ownership of a debt security. However, if you assert any other type of
claim against the Debtors, or are alleging damages or asserting causes of action based upon or arising from the debt
security, a Proof of Claim must be filed on or prior to the General Bar Date pursuant to the procedures set forth in this
Notice, unless an exception identified above applies.
If you are a holder of an equity interest in the Debtors, you need not file a proof of interest with respect to the
ownership of such equity interest at this time. However, if you assert a claim against the Debtors, including a claim
relating to such equity interest or the purchase or sale of such interest, a Proof of Claim must be filed on or prior to the
General Bar Date pursuant to the procedures set forth in this Notice, unless an exception identified above applies. Please
note that a Proof of Claim is not included with the mailing of this Notice to you. You may obtain a Proof of Claim form
from the Claims and Noticing Agent as provided below.
Any person or entity (including, without limitation, any individual, partnership, joint venture, corporation, limited
liability company, estate, trust or governmental unit) that is required to file a timely Proof of Claim in the form and
manner specified by the Bar Date Order and this Notice, and that fails to do so on or before the Bar Date associated with
such claim (or other applicable date as may be fixed by the Court), (i) shall not, with respect to such claim, be treated as a
creditor of the Debtors for the purposes of voting upon any plan in these cases and (ii) shall not receive or be entitled to
receive any payment or distribution of property from the Debtors or their successors or assigns with respect to such claim.
The Debtors reserve the right to (i) dispute, or to assert offsets or defenses against, any claim filed or any claim
listed or reflected in the Schedules as to nature, amount, liability, classification, or otherwise; and (ii) subsequently
designate any claim as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated. Nothing contained in this Notice shall preclude the Debtors
from objecting to any filed claim on any grounds.
Acts or omissions of the Debtors, if any, that occurred prior to the Petition Date, including acts or omissions
related to any indemnity agreements, guarantees, goods sold, or services provided to or rendered by the Debtors, may give
rise to claims against the Debtors notwithstanding the fact that such claims (or any injuries on which they are based) may
be contingent or may not have matured or become fixed or liquidated prior to the Petition Date. Therefore, any person or
entity that holds or asserts a claim or a potential claim against the Debtors, no matter how remote or contingent, must file
a Proof of Claim on or before the applicable Bar Date.
You may be listed as the holder of a claim against one or more of the Debtors in the Debtors’ Schedules of
Liabilities (collectively, the “Schedules”). To determine if and how you are listed on the Schedules, please refer to the
descriptions set forth in the upper right hand corner on the enclosed Proof of Claim form(s) regarding the Debtor, nature,
amount and status of your claim(s). Any amount set forth in such corner will reflect the Debtor’s books and records for
amounts owed as of the Petition Date or the amount remaining after applying a credit for any payments made pursuant to
order of the Bankruptcy Court between the Petition Date and the date of the Schedules. If there are no such descriptions,
you are not listed on the Schedules. If the Debtors believe that you hold claims against more than one Debtor, you will
receive multiple Proof of Claim forms, each of which will reflect the nature and amount of your claim against one Debtor,
as listed in the Schedules.
Copies of the Debtors’ Schedules are available: (i) free of charge from the Claims and Noticing Agent’s website
at http://www.loganandco.com., and/or (ii) for a fee at the Bankruptcy Court’s website at http://www.deb.uscourts.gov, by
following the directions for accessing the ECF system on such website. Copies of the Schedules may also be examined
between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Office of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court,
824 Market Street North, 3rd Floor, Wilmington, Delaware 19801.
If you rely on the Debtors’ Schedules, it is your responsibility to determine that the claim is accurately listed in
the Schedules; however you may rely on the enclosed Proof of Claim form if it lists your claim as scheduled and specifies
whether the claim is disputed, contingent or unliquidated.
As set forth above, if you agree with the nature, amount and status of your claim as listed in the Debtors’
Schedules, and if you do not dispute that your claim is only against the specified Debtor, and if your claim is not
described as “disputed”, “contingent”, or “unliquidated”, you need not file a Proof of Claim. Otherwise, if you decide to
file a Proof of Claim, you must do so before the applicable Bar Date in accordance with the procedures set forth in this
Notice. Please note, however, that the proper listing of your claim in the Schedules is not a substitute for filing a
503(b)(9) Request for Payment to assert a 503(b)(9) Claim.
Additional Proof of Claim forms may be obtained at http://www.uscourts.gov/bkforms or by contacting the
Claims and Noticing Agent by phone at (973) 509-3190 or toll-free (from within the United States) at (800) 224-7654, by
email to A123@loganandco.com, or by visiting http://www.loganandco.com.
Questions concerning the contents of this Bar Date Notice should be directed to the Claims and Noticing Agent
by phone at (973) 509-3190 or toll-free (from within the United States) at (800) 224-7654, by email to
A123@loganandco.com. Please note that Logan’s staff is not permitted to give legal advice. You should consult your

Proof of Claim or how to complete or file a Proof of Claim.
