SOF Investments, L.P. - Primary Energy Recycling Corporation - Early Warning Report

    TORONTO, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - On August 24, 2009, Primary Energy Recycling
Corporation (TSX: PRI.UN) (the "Company") announced that it had completed a
recapitalization transaction (the "Recapitalization") under a plan of
arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) pursuant to
which all of the Company's outstanding 11.75% subordinated notes (the
"Subordinated Notes") were converted into common shares of the Company
("Existing Common Shares") on the basis of sixteen (16) Existing Common Shares
for every Cdn$2.50 principal amount of Subordinated Notes (being Cdn.$0.156
principal amount per Existing Common Share) and all of the outstanding
Existing Common Shares (including those issued on the conversion) were
consolidated on the basis of one (1) new common share of the Company (a "New
Common Share") for every seventeen (17) Existing Common Shares. As a result of
the Recapitalization, SOF Investments, L.P. ("SOF Investments"), which
previously held 325,800 Existing Common Shares (representing approximately
1.0% of the Existing Common Shares outstanding prior to the Recapitalization)
and Cdn$13,314,500 principal amount of Subordinated Notes, received 85,212,800
Existing Common Shares in exchange for such Subordinated Notes and now holds
5,031,682 New Common Shares, corresponding to approximately 13.24% of the
outstanding New Common Shares (based on there being approximately 38,000,000
New Common Shares outstanding post Recapitalization, as disclosed by the
Company). The acquisition resulted from the Recapitalization and no
consideration was paid by SOF Investments for the exchange.
    SOF Investments does not own or control any other New Common Shares. SOF
Investments may acquire, or acquire control or direction over, additional
common shares of the Company or dispose of its existing New Common Shares on
the basis of its assessment of market conditions and in compliance with all
applicable contractual and securities regulatory requirements. SOF Investments
is, however, one of the shareholders that has entered into a non-binding term
sheet to provide a standby commitment for the proposed rights offering (the
"Proposed Rights Offering") by the Company that was disclosed by the Company,
with SOF Investments' proposed commitment being US$25 million. The non-binding
term sheet is subject to a number of conditions and the pricing for the Rights
Offering has not been set, so at this time there is no way to determine the
number, if any, of additional New Common Shares that SOF Investments may
acquire from the Company under the Proposed Rights Offering.
