VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 6, 2019 / (CSE:CMC) Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (“Cielo” or the “Company”) announces that it has closed another tranche of its private placement offering (the “Offering”) of unsecured convertible debenture units (the “Unit(s)”), raising gross proceeds of $437,000 in this tranche, for a combined total gross proceeds to date of $1,242,000.
Each Unit consists of one (1) $1,000 unsecured convertible debenture (the “Debenture(s)”) and 500 share purchase warrants (the “Warrant(s)”). The Debentures bear interest at a simple rate of 15% per annum, the initial two (2) years of interest to be prepaid (the “Prepaid Interest”) on the date of issuance of the Debentures (the “Issue Date”) by the issuance of common shares (the “Prepaid Interest Shares”) at a price of $0.12 per Prepaid Interest Share. The principal of the Debentures (the “Principal”) together with all accrued interest exceeding the Prepaid Interest (the “Interest Balance”) will be repaid 48 months from the Issue Date unless repaid earlier by Cielo without penalty or converted by the holder(s) thereof, any time after four months and a day following the Issue Date at a price of $0.08 for the Principal and $0.12 for the Interest Balance.
Each Warrant will be exercisable for a term of 48 months from the Issue Date (the “Warrant Term”) at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, subject to acceleration in the event that the common shares of Cielo listed on a recognized stock exchange trade at $0.50, or higher, for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, in which event Cielo may provide a notice to holders that the Warrant Term will terminate 30 days from the date of notice.
Cielo has issued to date pursuant to the Offering 1,242 Debentures, 621,000 Warrants, and 3,105,000 Prepaid Interest Shares. $15,000 of the gross proceeds were a conversion of existing debt of the Company. The net proceeds of the Offering have been and will continue to be used to complete the commissioning of the Company’s refinery in Aldersyde, Alberta (“Aldersyde Refinery”), as well as for general working capital.
As an insider of the Company has participated in the Offering, the Offering is considered to be a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company relies on the exemption from valuation requirement pursuant to subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101, as the securities of the Company are not listed or quoted on an enumerated stock exchange, and the Company relies on the exemption from minority approval under subsection 5.7(b) of MI 61-101, as the securities of the Company are not listed or quoted on an enumerated stock exchange; and neither consideration received, nor the fair value of the securities distributed exceeds $2,500,000.
Although the Offering is non-brokered, the Company may, as determined in its sole discretion, pay reasonable customary brokers’ and/or finders’ commissions in connection with the completion of the Offering of up to 8% of the gross proceeds raised by such broker(s)/finder(s) and up to 8% of the total number of common shares that would be issued to subscribers introduced by such broker(s)/finder(s) if 100% of the Principal under the Debentures is converted. With respect to the $1,242,000 closed in the Offering to date, Cielo has paid $60,400 to finders and issued 644,000 finder warrants, exercisable at $0.12 per share for 48 months from the date of issuance.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory 4 month hold period.
