Key Development During the Year Ended September 30, 2013

$ 3 Million Revolving Credit Line

In 2013, the Company signed a Letter of Intent with a lender in New York for a $ 3 million revolving line of credit to be secured by all assets of the Company.  The first disbursement of US$ 400,000 occurred in September 2013, four months later.  Further disbursements will be secured by increases in trade accounts receivable.

Negotiations for a Significant Order of Percofrac™ Equipment

Sofame began selling the 100% efficient Percofrac™ 10 MMBTU and 30 MMBTU mobile water heaters in the summer of 2013.  Witness testing of the units in the gas fields after they were mounted on trailers equipped with pumps, generators and propane vaporizers went very well.  There is discussion of orders for multiple units to serve the burgeoning fracking business.  Developments will be promptly reported.

Negotiations to Acquire a Company in the Same Industry

Sofame began negotiations in 2012 to acquire a company operating in the same industry.  These negotiations have progressed further and an acquisition is within the realm of possibility, if the required debt financing can be negotiated.  Discussions are under way with several potential lenders.  Any concrete developments will be reported promptly.
