VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2016) - SOLARVEST BIOENERGY INC. (TSX VENTURE:SVS) ("Solarvest" or the "Company"). Further to Solarvest's news releases on May 9, 2016 and August 18, 2016 with respect to its intention to complete a non-brokered $1,500,000 debenture and unit financing (the "Private Placement"), the Company announces that it has been unable to close the Private Placement as the subscriber has been unable to complete its subscriptions.
