Eguana Announces Canadian Private Placement for $3 Million to Execute Growth Strategy in U.S. Residential & Commercial Energy Storage Markets

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 15, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Eguana Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EGT) ("Eguana" or the "Company"), a technology leader in power conversion and control systems for distributed energy storage systems, announced today that, subject to regulatory approval it intends to raise up to $3.0 million through a brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 10 million units of the Company (the "Units") with accredited investors in Canada at a price of $0.30 per Unit.

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of 60 months from the closing date of the Private Placement at a price of $0.39 per common share.

The Company anticipates closing the Private Placement on December 22, 2014.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to:

  • Accelerate launch of a North American verison of the Company's highly successful Bi-Direx power control system for the U.S. residential solar energy storage market during Q1, 2015
  • Complete the development and launch of a mid range (10kW to 18kW) power control system for the U.S. commercial demand response market by the end of Q2, 2015
  • Increase engineering capacity to support a growing base of potential customer relationships with solar integrators and battery manufacturers
  • Optimize supply chain management for rapidly increasing production volumes in Europe.

Eguana currently has production capacity for 1,000 Bi-Direx units per month in Germany and another 1,000 Bi-Direx units per month in North America. A very capital efficient operating model enables the Company to quickly ramp production with minimal working capital investment.

Based on forecast demand from contracted customers, the Company believes that the net proceeds of the Private Placement are sufficient to allow it to meet the stated objectives and reach positive operating cash flow within the next two Quarters.

BayFront Capital Partners Ltd is acting as financial advisor and selling agent along with AllGroup Financial Services Inc in connection with the transaction.
