Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 19, 2018) - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC) (OTC Pink: SSCFF) (FSE: R3W) ("Smartcool" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has amended the letter agreement pursuant to which it proposes to acquire Total Energy Concepts Inc. ("TEC") from its sole shareholder - Damian Smith - in a transaction originally announced on March 13, 2018.
As amended, the letter agreement provides that Smartcool will acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of TEC in return for 18,000,000 common shares of Smartcool ("Smartcool Shares") and 5,000,000 non-transferable share purchase warrants (each, a "Warrant") to be issued to Damian Smith at closing, and US$150,000 in cash payable over 12 months from the closing date. Each Warrant will entitle Mr. Smith to purchase one additional Smartcool common share at the Closing Price until the fifth anniversary of the closing date. In the original letter agreement, the number of Smartcool Shares to be issued to Mr. Smith at closing was to be determined at closing, based on the market price in effect immediately before closing; the amendment removes this uncertainty and fixes the number of Smartcool Shares at 18,000,000. The letter agreement continues to be subject to customary conditions, including the execution of a definitive agreement and TSX Venture Stock Exchange Approval.
The Company has substantially completed its due diligence and can report that TEC's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017, show net income of (US$147,251) (CDN$194,371) on 2017 revenues of US$2,012,278 (CDN$2,656,207). The parties have agreed to fix an 'effective date' for closing of April 1, 2018.
