Ostrom Climate Solutions Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: COO, Frankfurt:9EA) announces that it has closed its non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) announced on January 12, 2021.
The Company issued an aggregate of 15,383,460 units (each a “Unit”) at a per Unit price of $0.065 for gross proceeds of $999,925. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), each warrant entitling the purchase of one common share at a per share price of $0.085 for 60 months from the date of issuance of the securities.
Three insiders of the Company, Guy O’Loughnane, Alexander Zang and Forest Finance Services GmbH (Harry Assenmacher) participated in the Offering for aggregate cash consideration to the Company of $500,000, which constitutes a Related Party Transaction under Exchange Policy 5.9. The Company expects to avail itself of the exemptions contained in section 5.5(c) of MI 61-101 (distribution of securities for cash) for an exemption from the formal valuation requirement and Section 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirement of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the transaction, and the consideration to be received by the Company for those securities, insofar as the transaction involves interested parties does not exceed $2,500,000.
The investment by and participation of Mr. O’Loughnane in the Offering resulted in Mr O’Loughnane being a control person of the Company on a partially diluted basis in accordance with the policies of the Exchange. On closing, Mr. O’Loughnane holds or has direction or control over 11,239,423 common shares of the Company and stock options and Warrants exercisable for an aggregate of 6,276,923 common shares of the Company, resulting in a total holding of 21% of the common shares of the Company, on a partially diluted basis (assuming the exercise by Mr. O’Loughnane of his outstanding options and warrants). The Company received shareholder approval by way of written consents to the creation of Mr. O’Loughnane as a control person of the Company.
“The growth potential of the carbon sector we are seeing is the result of a fundamental shift in demand – driven by significant new corporate commitments to net zero emissions as we transition to a cleaner economy,” commented Phil Cull, CEO of Ostrom. “The capital markets are recognizing this, which puts us in a very strong position to further capitalize the Company in the months to come, given our strong track record of performance in the carbon development space.
We are pleased to have received significant investment from our Board of Directors on this initial raise, and look forward to working with the capital community to both fund and accelerate our growth.”
The proceeds raised from the Offering will be used by the Company for general working capital purposes.
No finder’s fees were payable in connection with the Offering.
All securities issued will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing of the Offering in accordance with applicable securities legislation and the policies of the Exchange.
