Greenbriar Capital Files US $150 Million DOE Loan Guarantee
Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Greenbriar Capital Corp. (the “Company” or “Greenbriar”) is pleased to announce filing with the US Department of Energy (“DOE”), a loan guarantee application for US $150 Million, pursuant to Solicitation No. DE-SOL-0007154, dated July 3, 2014 and amended November 29, 2016. Greenbriar has met all mandatory requirements for filing as specified in the Solicitation including all the materials and attachments. Our Part I submission Application Fee of US $50,000 was wired per the instructions on 01/16/2017.
We intend to submit our complete Part II submission on or before the due date for the Part II reviews as set forth in Section IV.A of the Solicitation as amended. Based on the Application process described in the Solicitation, we are prepared to close the financing on or about December 15, 2017 and begin construction on the 100 MW Montalva Solar project with a contract value of US $1.9 Billion over 35 years.
The DOE Loan Guarantee program is funded with US $40 Billion for credit support to eligible renewable energy and clean energy projects utilizing state of the art technology. The program provides a US Federal Guarantee on all project debt obligations, drastically lowering financing costs to US Treasury yield rates, plus a small spread of between 100 to 140 basis points. The program further lowers closing and legal costs.
Greenbriar closed the second and final tranche of a non-brokered private placement financing of convertible debentures (the "Debentures") that was announced on October 11, 2016. The gross proceeds to the Company from this second tranche was $150,000. As disclosed in the Company’s earlier news release, the Debentures have a maturity date of 3 years from the date of issue (the "Maturity Date"), bear interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum payable semi-annually and will be convertible into units of the Company at the holder's option at a conversion price of $1.00 per unit at any time prior to the Maturity Date. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one- half of one common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $1.50 per share for a period of three years from the date of issuance of the Debenture. A Finder’s fee of 5% payable in cash ($3,750) and 5% payable by the issuance of warrants (3,750) was paid to PI Financial Corp.
The Debentures, any shares issued upon the conversion of the Debentures into Units, and any shares issued upon the exercise of any Warrants comprising the Units are subject to a hold period expiring at midnight on May 13, 2017.
