SustainCo Inc.: Completion of Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) - SustainCo Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMS) ("SustainCo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has completed the previously announced private placement of SustainCo.

The Company completed a non-brokered private placement (the "Debt Offering") of units (the "Units") for a total gross proceeds of CAD $5,075,000. Each Unit is comprised of: (i) a $1,000 principal amount secured debenture (each a "Debenture"); and (ii) 100 common share purchase warrants (each a "Warrant"). The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum and have a maturity date that is five years following the closing of the Debt Offering with a redemption feature exercisable by the Company after a period of 24 months. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share in the Company (each a "Share") at an exercise price of $0.25 (subject to adjustment in certain events) for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Debt Offering. Proceeds of the Debt Offering will be used for targeted acquisitions and general working capital purposes.

The proceeds of the Debt Offering consist of the consolidation of new debt with pre-existing Company debt (the "Pre-Existing Debt") in the amount of $500,000.00 that was assumed by the Company from Urban Mechanical Contracting Ltd ("Urban Mechanical") as part of SustainCo's sale of Urban Mechanical in December of 2013.

The Company paid certain finders a finder's fee equal, in the aggregate, to 6% of the gross proceeds received under the Debt Offering from subscribers identified by such finders payable in cash, and that number of Warrants that is equal to 6% of the total value of the Debentures sold to such subscribers.

In accordance with applicable securities laws in Canada, the Debentures and Warrants will be subject to a "hold period" of four months plus one day from the date of closing of the Debt Offering.
