ESG & Cleantech, Technology

March 15, 2021 (Source) — Cielo Waste Solutions (CSE:CMC), (OTC:CWSFF), (CNSX:CMC.CN), (WKN:C36) (“Cielo” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the previously announced binding letter of intent, from March 3, 2021, to obtain from one or more lenders (the “Lender(s”)), a non-interest bearing, unsecured convertible loan of CDN$10 Million (the “Original Loan Amount”), has been amended by increasing the amount of the Loan by CDN $4 Million (the “Additional Loan Amount”) to a total of $14 Million (the “Loan”).

The net proceeds of the Additional Loan Amount will be used to double the Company’s existing facility in Aldersyde, Alberta (the “Aldersyde Facility”) from 1,000 lph to 2,000 lph and for engineering work on the 100% Cielo-owned facility in Edmonton, Alberta, once the site has been acquired. Cielo will have the discretion to use the balance of the funds as needed, for working capital purposes.

The Loan, including the Additional Loan Amount, is non-interest bearing and unsecured with a term of 12 months (the “Term”).  Cielo will be entitled to repay the Loan at any time during the Term without penalty.  During the Term, until maturity or such early repayment, the Lender(s) will be entitled to convert the Original Loan at CDN $1.02 per share and the Additional Loan Amount at CDN$1.25 per share.  The Additional Loan Amount is also subject to transaction fees equal to CDN$280,000 and commission to a third party of CDN$320,000, in line with the fees and commissions payable with respect to the Original Loan Amount. Cielo believes these fees and commissions are well in line with industry standards and eliminate high interest payments and saves Cielo millions in debt payments without significant dilution of the company shares with an exceptional conversion strike price.

Don Allan, President and CEO of Cielo, stated, “Cielo has hired a 3rd party Real Estate Appraisal company and is narrowing down the site selection in Edmonton and we hope to have the land purchased in the next few weeks.  This additional CDN$4M will also allow us to start the engineering and permitting process in Edmonton while continuing work on the Dunmore facility outside Medicine Hat, AB, and, with the increase, Cielo now sufficient funds to enable us to double the production capacity at the Aldersyde Facility. Cielo is grateful to be in a position of financial stability with good momentum.  Cielo has received attention from the financial community and, at present, we are fielding calls of interest from numerous companies and firms wanting to help take our company to the next level.  2021 has started extremely positive for Cielo and its shareholders and we believe the momentum will continue as we’ve reduced the hurdles in front of us.”
