The private placement was increased from $10,000,000 to $17,913,000 due to strong demand for participation in the offering.

Each whole warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.45 expiring two (2) years from the date of issue. The warrants include an acceleration feature whereby if the Company’s common stock trades at a price above $1.00 during a 20 trading day period, Trillion may accelerate the expiry of the warrants. Echelon Capital Markets acted as financial advisor in connection with the private placement.

Dr. Art Halleran, CEO, said:

Thanks to the recent influx of funds, we will be able to convert our gas reservations in income. This Private placement is a giant step towards achieving this result. the strong demand for the Company’s shares resulting in nearly $8 million oversubscribed illustrates the value of the Company’s SASB assets in the current economic context.
