PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - December 15, 2016) - Cardinal Resources Inc. (OTC PINK: CDNL), a producer of patented solar powered clean water systems, today announced it has terminated the securities purchase agreement (SPA) signed on December 10, 2015 with Hangzhou Sky Valley Water Technology Co., Ltd. (HSVW) due to lack of fulfillment by HSVW of the funding commitments of the SPA.
The SPA had provided for the issuance of shares of common stock in Cardinal Resources exchange for aggregate gross proceeds of $7,500,000. The transaction was meant to be closed in two tranches of $3,750,000 from HSVW in exchange for up to 51% ownership of the issued and outstanding shares of Cardinal Resources' common stock. HSVW transferred $1.1 million to a Trust Account in the US as part of the first tranche, which was never completed. HSVW received 4,896,905 shares of common stock for the funds that were released.
The Company filed an 8K today on the termination of the SPA.
"While we are disappointed that HSVW did not fulfill terms of the agreement as well as certain business obligations commensurate with the agreement, we are now poised to address the full potential of existing opportunities in Cameroon and other markets," said Cardinal Resources CEO Kevin Jones. "This is an upbeat development that will protect our IP in international markets. We are on track in cleaning up our balance sheets and making progress toward becoming a fully-reporting public entity again."
HSVW was a Hangzhou, China-based consortium that was formed to market, commercialize and manufacture Cardinal Resources' water treatment technologies in Asia, Africa and other international markets. Termination of the SPA also terminates any and all claims HSVW had to license, manufacture or in any other way utilize Cardinal Resources patented water purification technologies worldwide. Cardinal Resources will provide support for the patented Red Bird System purchased by HSVW.
