Proceeds to Be Used to Increase Market Penetration and Sales
ST. PETERSBURG, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2022 / Energy and Water Development Corp. (OTC PINK:EAWD) (the "Company"), an engineering company focused on delivering innovative and sustainable solutions of water and energy, today announced that it entered into a common stock purchase agreement and registration rights agreement (together, the "Agreements") with an institutional investor for up to $5 million worth of shares issuable over a 24-month period time, based upon the current market price of the stock at the time. Separately, upon entering into the Agreements, the investor made an initial fixed price equity investment of $300,000 at the then market price, no discount, which is subject to Rule 144 and a 6-month holding period.
Ralph Hofmeier, Chief Executive Officer of Energy and Water Development Corp., stated, "I want to reiterate that this investment is a step up for us, as the upfront capital of $300,000 is substantial for us to continue to grow our sales and it is in common stock equity at a fixed price. Of note, the common stock equity agreement will provide us additional growth capital to increase our sales and is at our control and discretion in regards to the amounts and timing. We believe this financing is not dilutive to current shareholders and enhances our value by increasing our cash and shareholder equity positions over time. It better positions us toward our capital markets goal for 2022-23 of an uplist to a major U.S. national exchange."
Hofmeier, continued, "We are extremely happy to partner with this institutional investor in regards to a common stock equity agreement. This is a major milestone for our Company, as we look to accelerate the number of active projects and revenue in 2022. Energy Development & Water is an emerging growth company going after a multi-billion-dollar market opportunity.If we had more capital to deploy, we could be growing much faster and this is a market that is rewarding growth. We are confident that the existing capital structure will support our operational cash flow requirements while providing the flexibility to achieve our growth targets. Plenty of high-profile public companies utilize similar equity agreements including American Battery Technology, Roku, Ballard Power among others, which have all seen their stocks perform very well post announcements. Of extreme importance to us was the faith and enthusiasm of the investor to provide a $300,000 upfront investment at a fixed equity price and our control over the timing and amounts of future equity capital which allows us to take advantage of sudden increases in our stock price."
Following the initial investment, and subject to the conditions of the Agreements, including that a registration statement is filed and declared effective with the Securities and Exchange Commission the Company has the right, in its sole discretion, to sell up to an additional $5 million worth of shares over a 24-month period. The Company will control the timing and amount of any sales to the investor and the investor is obligated to make purchases in accordance with the Agreements.
There are no upper limits to the price per share the investor may pay to purchase common stock and the purchase price of the shares will be based on the then prevailing market prices of the Company's shares at the time of each sale. No warrants, derivatives, financial or business covenants are associated with the Agreements.
