"Although it's been a difficult year for our customers in the oil and gas industry, especially in Alberta where most of our prospective customers have been to date, we believe we have proven the value of Seair's technology in all of the field trials we've seen and are working to bring these to purchase orders as quickly as possible." said Jeff Seibert, CEO of Seair.
Mr. Seibert added, "We are seeing strong interest from across the globe, including China, the Middle East and the US. The global expansion of our business is putting a greater strain on our capital resources with the escalation of client interest driving the need for expanded technical resources and field trials. While we remain bullish on the high value solutions we offer to the oil patch, it is also prudent to exert parallel efforts into the penetration of markets other than Oil & Gas such as mining and industrial waste water, all of which require more working capital. This equity raise will support our working capital requirements along with our activity in those regions." He added "We are also seeing support from our convertible debenture holders and the have indicated to us that they will support extending the maturity to June 2017. We expect to announce a successful rollover before the end of the year as a result".
The Company also announces that it plans to amend the terms of its existing debentures, including, without limitation, to extend the expiry date of the debentures from December 31, 2015 to June 30, 2017. The amendments to the debentures are subject to receipt of all requisite approvals, including, without limitation, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the affirmative votes of debenture holders at meetings which will take place on December 21, 2015. Details on the debenture amendments are available under the Company's profile on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.
