SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2015 /CNW/ -- OneRoof Energy, Inc. ("OneRoof" or the "Company"), a residential solar services provider and wholly owned subsidiary of OneRoof Energy Group, Inc. ("OneRoof Energy") (TSXV: ON) today announced that the subscription price for common shares of OneRoof Energy ("Common Shares") for a previously announced equity offering (the "Equity Offering") with Black Coral Capital, LLC ("Black Coral") has increased from CDN$0.08 to CDN$0.095, which was the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") on April 20, 2015, the date of the announcement of the Equity Offering. Pursuant to the Equity Offering, Black Coral will subscribe for Common Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of US$3,000,000.
In addition, the conversion price of convertible notes (the "Notes") to be issued pursuant to a previously announced private placement of convertible notes (the "Note Offering") has also increased from CDN$0.08 to CDN$0.095. Pursuant to the Note Offering, convertible notes in the principal amount of US$16,556,979 will be issued by OneRoof in exchange for the same aggregate amount of existing indebtedness owed by OneRoof Energy and its subsidiaries to Black Coral and Spindrift Equities, LLC. Each Note is convertible into Common Shares at the option of the holder at a conversion price of CDN$0.095 for the first year after the closing of the Note Offering and at a conversion price of CDN$0.10 for the remainder of the term of the Note.
Notes in a principal amount of US$2,470,000, with substantially the same terms as the Notes issued in the Note Offering, will also be issued as consideration for OneRoof's purchase (the "Asset Purchase" and together with the Note Offering and the Equity Offering, the "Financing") of 100% of Black Coral's sponsor equity interest in OneRoof Energy's first tax equity fund ("Fund I"). Fund I was originally established in 2011 by OneRoof, an affiliate of Black Coral and an affiliate of US Bank, NA. US Bank provided the tax equity financing for Fund I and OneRoof and the Black Coral affiliate provided the sponsor equity for Fund I. The sponsor equity position in Fund I constitutes the residual equity interest in the pool of 472 residential solar projects owned by Fund I. Currently, OneRoof holds a 0.1% interest in the Fund I sponsor equity vehicle and the Black Coral affiliate holds a 99.9% interest in such vehicle. Fund I owns 472 solar projects with an approximate net book value of US$10.8 million as of March, 31, 2015, valued in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). Because Black Coral is an "insider" of OneRoof Energy as defined under applicable securities laws as the result of its current ownership of 19.6% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, the Asset Purchase is a "related party transaction".
The Financing is subject to all applicable regulatory approvals, including the acceptance of the TSXV.
The proceeds from the Financing will be used for general working capital purposes, including general and administrative, IT development and investment in solar projects.
