VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2019 / CSE: CMC: Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (“Cielo” or the “Company”) announces the closing of $1,020,250 in gross proceeds in the third tranche (“Third Tranche”) of its previously announced private placement of convertible debenture units and announces an extension to the deadlines to complete the previously announced joint venture agreements with Renewable U Grande Prairie Inc., Renewable U Medicine Hat Inc., Renewable U Brooks Inc. and Seymour Capital Incorporated, (collectively the “JV Companies”) that will govern the building and operation of follow-on Cielo refineries in specified territories in Alberta and Ontario.
PRIVATE PLACEMENT OFFERING OF CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURE UNITS
Cielo announced on May 7, 2019, a private placement offering of a targeted minimum of CAD $1,000,000 in convertible debentures units (the “Unit(s)”). Each Unit consists of one (1) $10,000 unsecured convertible debenture (the “Debenture(s)”) and 5,000 share purchase warrants (the “Warrant(s)”).
The Debentures will bear interest at a simple rate of 15% per annum, the initial two (2) years of interest to be prepaid (the “Prepaid Interest”) on the date of issuance of the Debentures (the “Issue Date”) by the issuance of common shares (the “Prepaid Interest Shares”) at a price of $0.10 per Prepaid Interest Share. The principal of the Debentures (the “Principal”) together with all accrued interest exceeding the Prepaid Interest (the “Interest Balance”) will be repaid 48 months from the Issue Date unless repaid earlier by Cielo without penalty or converted by the holder(s) thereof any time after four months and a day following the Issue Date at a price of $0.06 for the Principal and $0.10 for the Interest Balance.
Each Warrant will be exercisable for a term of 48 months from the Issue Date (the “Warrant Term”) at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, subject to acceleration in the event that the common shares of Cielo listed on a recognized stock exchange trade at $0.50 or higher for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, in which event Cielo may provide a notice to holders that the Warrant Term will terminate 30 days from the date of notice.
In conjunction with the previously announced closing of the first and second tranches of the Offering, announced on May7th and June 4th, 2019, a total of $2,815,250 in gross proceeds has now been raised in the initial three tranches. In the Third Tranche, 102.025 Units were issued, consisting of 510,125 Warrants, and 3,060,750 Prepaid Interest Shares. Together with the first two tranches, 281.525 Units were issued, consisting of 1,410,000 Warrants and 8,445,750 Prepaid Interest Shares. Net proceeds of the Offering will be used to complete the commissioning of the Company’s refinery in Aldersyde, Alberta, as well as for general working capital.
Although the Offering is non-brokered, the Company may pay reasonable customary brokers’ and/or finders’ commissions in connection with the completion of the Offering of up to 8% of the gross proceeds raised by such broker(s)/finder(s) and up to 8% of the total number of common shares that would be issued to subscribers introduced by such broker(s)/finder(s) if 100% of the Principal under the Debentures is converted. With respect to the closing of the Third Tranche, Cielo paid commissions equal to $25,700 and issued 158,667warrants (the “Finder Warrant(s)”). Each Finder Warrant will be exercisable for a term of 48 months from the Issue Date (the “Finder Warrant Term”) at an exercise price of $0.10 per share, subject to acceleration in the event that the common shares of Cielo listed on a recognized stock exchange trade at $0.50 or higher for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, in which event Cielo may provide a notice to holders that the Finder Warrant Term will terminate 30 days from the date of notice.
JOINT VENTURE EXTENDED TIMELINE
As a result of requests for additional time for due diligence by the JV Companies, Cielo and the JV Companies have agreed to extend the deadlines by which they had agreed to enter into the respective definitive agreements from June 28th and 30th, 2019, respectively, to September 30th, 2019.
Don Allan, President & CEO of Cielo, stated “We are two weeks away from the Grand Opening of our Aldersyde commercial renewable fuel refinery that is engineered to convert multiple different types of waste, including sorted municipal solid waste (garbage), wood and agriculture waste, rail ties, used tires, blue-box waste, all types of plastics and virtually any other cellulous waste product into high grade renewable diesel. This event is expected to bring international attention and awareness to Cielo’s technology, which management is confident will have a significant positive impact on today’s growing waste issues.”
