Harmonic Energy Announces Funding Goals & Review of Grant Applications

LONDON--(Marketwire - Jan 21, 2013) - Harmonic Energy Inc. (OTCQB: ASUV) is a company focused on vertically integrated tyre manufacturing and recycling using an innovative approach to energy efficiency and sustainability, has initiated its funding negotiations and due diligence on investment structuring with several lenders. The effort is being led by Jamie Mann, Chief Executive who states, "The objective is to achieve a combination of equity based financing, combined with possible asset backed lending using innovative loan, leasing and project financing structures that will allow the company to achieve its goals while also offering the least amount of dilution to its stock. The total funding objective in our business plan calls for approximately thirty million dollars over the next twenty four to thirty six months. The reception to the business plan and cash flows for the company has had excellent response" stated Mr. Mann. The anticipated funding will provide the necessary capital to complete the acquisition of the company's strategic targets and begin the work on the detailed engineering and construction of the company's integrated pyrolysis and gasification units.

Harmonic's financial advisors are currently reviewing grant applications which could also help support the establishment and demonstration of its integrated tire technology applications in the United States and the United Kingdom. Within the EU and U.S. there are substantial incentives for green and sustainable environmental companies providing advanced solutions to waste and energy. Applying for a number of these grants could unlock an estimated ten million in additional funding sources for the company.

The management team is also preparing presentations for universities and educational institutions who may be interested in forming strategic alliances and partnerships in application research for expanding the company's business plan. Harmonic is interested in working with those educational institutions that are interested and suitable for the establishing and creating an Environmental Engineering Apprenticeship Programme which is a key part of Harmonic's progressive approach to career development in the tyre manufacturing and recycling sector. Harmonic also believes that the establishment of such a programme would give the company access to highly qualified staff to aid in the role out of its manufacturing and recycling facilities.

ASUV believes that its vertically integrated tyre manufacturing and recycling systems hold the key to a profitable, sustainable market for the growth of a greener tyre manufacturing sector. ASUV plans to compete alongside major international corporations striving for more sustainable tyre manufacturing solutions and commodities, such as Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, Kumho Tire Co., and Pirelli & C. SpA.
