Environmental Waste International Provides Corporate Update

December 19, 2023 6:44 PM EST | Source: Environmental Waste International Inc.

Whitby, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 19, 2023) - Environmental Waste International (TSXV: EWS) (the "Company" or "EWS") announced today that it intends to raise up to $500,000 in a $0.02 per unit private placement financing, with a first tranche closing prior to December 31, 2023. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each warrant expires two years from the closing and has an exercise price of $0.05.

The Company intends to close an additional private placement in Q1 2024. The Company has received firm commitments of $200,000 for the December 2023 Financing to date. Management believes that on or around May 30, 2024, working capital will be over $250,000 and the Company's cash position is expected to be almost $1.0 million, which will allow for the continued expansion of the Sault Ste. Marie plant upgrade.

No broker or finder fees are anticipated to be paid in connection with the financing. All securities issued pursuant to the financing will be subject to four months and a day statutory hold period. The financing is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of regulatory filings. The funds will be used for upgrading the Company's Sault Ste. Marie facility, repayment of debt and for working capital.

The Company is also pleased to announce that a board member (the "Related Creditor") has loaned the Company an aggregate amount of $50,000 (the "Loan"). The Company issued a demand promissory note to the Related Creditor in respect of the amount advanced (the "Promissory Note"). The Promissory Note bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum, which shall accrue and become payable along with the principal amount on the maturity date. The Promissory Note is secured with a general security agreement over the assets of the Company.

The participation in the Loan by the Related Creditor constitutes a "related party transactions" as such term is defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") under applicable securities laws (the "Related Party Transaction"). The Company is relying on exemptions from the MI 61-101 formal valuation and minority approval requirements applicable to related party transactions available as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for the Related Party Transaction, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization at the time at which such transactions were agreed to. The Related Party Transaction was approved by directors of the Company who are independent of the related party.

As outlined in the Company's recent MD&A, EWS has a $2,000,000 term loan with the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation ("NOHFC"). The loan is technically in default. However, the Company has had a very cordial and productive relationship with the NOHFC, and they have been very responsive to the Company's needs. We expect the amended terms to the loan agreement will be completed in parallel with the complete upgrade financing which should be on or around early Q2 2024. At that time the loan will become long-term and will not then affect working capital.
