CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 10, 2016) - Ceiba Energy Services Inc. ("Ceiba" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CEB), a growing environmental fluids processing and disposal company, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of unsecured convertible debentures ("Debentures"). The Company has issued $2,402,000 of Debentures, including $150,000 of subscriptions from Ceiba officers and directors. The Company has paid an aggregate of $122,485 in finder's fees in connection with the Private Placement.
Each Debenture has an issue price of $1,000 per Debenture, matures on June 30, 2020 and will bear interest at a rate of 9.0% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears. Each Debenture is convertible into Common Shares at the option of the holder at any time prior to redemption or maturity (as the case may be), at the price of $0.40 per Common Share (the "Conversion Price"), which is equivalent to 2,500 Common Shares for each $1,000 principal amount of Debentures, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The Debentures and common shares in the capital of Ceiba (the "Common Shares") issued upon conversion thereof will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance of the Debentures in accordance with applicable securities laws and, if required, the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
As previously disclosed, Ceiba has initiated civil work for the Kaybob facility that will expand its western Alberta presence and attract new waste fluid volumes in areas less affected by the current downturn in commodity prices. Ceiba intends to use the proceeds of this Private Placement for the construction of the Kaybob facility and general corporate purposes.
