Eguana Technologies Announces $1.6 Million Private Placement of Common Shares and Flow-Through LP Units

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 5, 2013) - Eguana Technologies Inc (TSX VENTURE:EGT), ("Eguana" or the Company") a leading supplier of power conversion solutions for battery based energy storage systems announced today that is raising $1.6 million by way of a private placement of 1,200 $1,000 exchangeable limited partnership units ("LP Units") of EGT Markets Limited Partnership ("Partnership") exchangeable for common shares of Eguana after December 31, 2013, at an exchange ratio of $0.45 per share; and 1 million common shares at a price of $0.40 per share.

The common shares issued under the private placement, as well as any common shares issued on the exchange of LP Units will be subject to a 4 month hold that expires April 4, 2014.

The net proceeds of the issue will be used to increase Eguana's engineering support capacity; to secure additional production test equipment for the SRI manufacturing facility in Durach Bavaria (See News Release dated October 24, 2013: Eguana Technologies' BiDirex Inverters to be "Made in Germany"); and to increase working capital reserves.

Eguana's patented software driven approach to power conversion is quickly gaining recognition as the industry's best power conversion solution for all the emerging low voltage battery technologies that will drive the energy storage market. "Expanding our engineering capacity allows us to move much more quickly to build the industry partnerships that will position Bi-Direx as the global market leader," said Michael Carten, CEO of Eguana.

Shifting European production to SRI significantly improves Eguana's ability to respond to increased demand and changes in product mix, at the same time simplifying the supply chain and reducing operating costs. "Our goal is to have SRI fully operational by the end of January," Carten added.

The selling concession on the issue is 7% of gross proceeds, plus broker warrants equal to 7% of the common shares issuable under the private placement, exercisable for a period of one year from closing at $0.45/share. The Company and Partnership have completed the sale of 1,085 LP Units and 1,000,000 common shares for total gross proceeds of $1,485,500; and expect to complete the sale of the balance of LP Units shortly.

Eguana also announced that it has reached an agreement with Doughty Hanson Technology Ventures, the holder of most of the Company's First Preferred Shares, and certain Eguana directors holding First Preferred Shares to remove the fixed redemption term on its First Preferred Shares, subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and subject to the approval of 2/3 of the holders of each Series of First Preferred Shares to be obtained at a special meeting of each Series duly called for this purpose.
