TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carbon Streaming Corporation (NEO: NETZ) (FSE: M2QA) (“Carbon Streaming” or the “Company”) has released its audited financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.
Carbon Streaming’s President and CEO Justin Cochrane said: “The last year has been a time of profound growth for Carbon Streaming, as we directed investment into laying the foundation for success by expanding our expert management team and building an impressive pipeline of exceptional carbon credit investment opportunities. In just a few short months our team has generated incredible momentum for the Company, and we will continue to focus on leveraging our capital markets access and expertise to help fight climate change.”
Fiscal Year 2021 and Recent Highlights:
- The Company successfully listed its common shares (“Common Shares”) on the NEO Stock Exchange (the “NEO Exchange”) under the trading symbol “NETZ” and also commenced trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol “M2QA”.
- In July 2021, the Company raised US$104.9 million through a non-brokered private placement of Special Warrants (the “Private Placement”), which will be automatically exercised for one Common Share and one full Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) with a term of 62 months at an exercise price of US$1.50 per Warrant.
- Prior to June 30, 2021, the Company also raised a total of US$39.6 million (C$49 million) through private placements of Common Shares and units.
- As of June 30, 2021, the Company had US$108.4 million (C$134.3 million) in cash and no corporate debt. As of August 31, 2021, the Company’s cash balance was US$112.1 million (C$141.5 million), which reflects the receipt of all proceeds of the Private Placement (which closed after year-end) and payment of the upfront deposits for the Rimba Raya stream.
- The Company signed three carbon credit streaming agreements: the Rimba Raya Project, MarVivo Project and Cerrado Biome Project as well as an exclusive term sheet with the Bonobo Conservation Initiative. These projects represent the foundation for the Company’s anticipated diverse portfolio of high-quality carbon credits. More information on these projects is available on the Company’s website at www.carbonstreaming.com, and in the Company’s Annual Information Form on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
- The Company announced that it is implementing a 1-for-5 consolidation (reverse stock split) of its common shares, which subject to approval of the NEO Exchange, are expected to commence trading on a post-consolidation basis in the coming weeks. The share consolidation is an important step in the Company’s U.S. listing strategy. The Company is further exploring stock exchange listing opportunities in the United States and is targeting to be listed on a U.S. stock exchange, such as NASDAQ or NYSE, in the first half of 2022.
