CALGARY, AB /ACCESSWIRE/August 9, 2022/ Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (TSXV: CMC); (OTCQB: CWSFF) (“Heaven” or the “Company”), a waste-to-fuel environmental technology company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with First Choice Financial Incorporated (“FCF“) and KV Capital Inc. (“kV“, together with FCF, collectively the “Lenders“) for the repayment of C$2,000,000 of a mortgage loan (the “Ready“) provided by the Lenders in August 2021, through the issuance of shares (the “Actions for Debt Transaction“).
In an ongoing effort to improve the Company’s financial condition, the Company has agreed, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Swap“), to repay a portion of the loan, which is secured by the company’s property in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. The loan, which was announced on August 24, 2021, has an outstanding balance of CA$6,500,000 following the prepayment of a portion of the loan earlier in 2022, as previously announced Completion of the equity-for-borrowing transaction will result in the loan being reduced by C$2,000,000 in exchange for the issuance of 21,428,571 common shares of Cielo at a price of $0.07 per share and of 5,555,555 common shares of Cielo shares at a price of $0.09 per share, for an aggregate issue of 26,984,126 common shares of Cielo (the “Redemption Actions”).
The terms of the loan provided for a 12-month interest reserve, which will be exhausted in August 2022, so Cielo will have to start making additional monthly interest payments in September 2022. In addition to Cielo’s debt reduction in general, the actions for the debt transaction will allow a reduction of these interest payments.
In addition, 12,000,000 non-transferable warrants (the “Subscription warrants“) had been issued in August 2021 as an inducement for the loan. Pursuant to the terms of the loan, in the event the loan is repaid in whole or in part during its term, a proportionate number of the total bonus warrants will have their term reduced on the date which is 90 days from this redemption. As part of the first partial redemption earlier in 2022, 5,500,000 Bonus Warrants had their term reduced (and have now expired) and as part of the Shares proposed for the Debt Transaction, 2,000,000 other BSA Bonuses will have their duration reduced on the date which is 90 days following the completion of the Share-for-Debt Transaction. Bonuses are not exercised within this period, they will expire.
The Equity for Debt Transaction is subject to stock exchange approval. After approval and issuance, Redemption Shares will be subject to a 4 month hold period.
Ryan Jackson, CEO of Cielo, said, “We are delighted with First Choice Financial’s decision to convert some of its current debt into Cielo stock. This conversion, combined with the lease agreement, allows Cielo to significantly reduce cash outflows related to the Fort Saskatchewan Property. Cielo sincerely appreciates the vote of confidence from Mr. Sharma and his company with this conversion and will continue to work very hard to achieve our stated goal of bringing our technology to market.
Vikas Sharma, President of FCF, said, “First Choice Financial is proud to be part of Cielo Waste Solution’s vision to change the world and the way we use waste. We believe that Cielo’s proprietary technology is truly a game-changer and has the potential to change the way we perceive and use waste forever.” Mr. Sharma continued, “CWF is a long-time supporter of Cielo and has recently decided to convert a portion of its debt into a direct investment in Cielo. CWF is pleased with the dedication of Cielo management and their focus on marketing and selling Cielo. I believe these recent improvements in the financial position of Cielo will bring Cielo closer to its goal of large-scale commercialization.”
