November 17, 2021 (Source) — (TSXV: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) announce today that it has received proceeds in an amount of approximately $14.0 M from the exercise of 9,933,211 warrants. Each warrant granted its holder the right to receive one common share of the Corporation at a price of $1.40.

The warrants were issued pursuant to a prospectus unit offering in November 2019. Only 558,099 warrants, out of the total issued of 10,491,310 warrants, had not been exercised on their expiry date of November 15, 2021.

The proceeds received by the Corporation following the exercise of the warrants have been earmarked for general working capital. H2O Innovation wishes to thank all of its shareholders for their continued support of the Corporation.

“Combined with our financial results for fiscal year 2021 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, the proceeds received from the warrants’ exercise have allowed H2O Innovation to maintain a good cash flow position during the Covid-19 pandemic and to reduce its long-term debt significantly, leaving room for new projects and opportunities,” stated Frédéric Dugré, President and Chief Executive Officer of H2O Innovation.
