Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, September 21, 2017 – Fieldex Exploration Inc. (“Fieldex”) (TSX-V: FLX) is pleased to provide an update on the proposed reverse take-over (the “Reverse Take-over”) of Fieldex by Idénergie Inc. (“Idénergie”) and proposed “spin-out” (the “Spin-out”) of all of Fieldex’s assets (except for cash and cash equivalents having an aggregate minimum value of $303,400) and all of its liabilities to QUAD Resources Inc. (“QUAD Resources”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fieldex. As previously announced, Fieldex entered into a letter of intent dated June 6, 2017 with Idénergie with respect to the Spin-out and Reverse Take-over, which will constitute a “Reverse Takeover” for Fieldex under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). Idénergie is a private company incorporated on April 6, 2011 under the Canada Business Corporations Act, with its head office in Montreal. Fieldex, which was incorporated under Canada Business Corporations Act on May 29, 1985, is listed on the TSXV.
PROPOSED REVERSE TAKE-OVER
The Reverse Take-over will involve the acquisition by Fieldex of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Idénergie from its shareholders. In order to effect the Reverse Take-over, Fieldex, Idénergie and Idénergie’s securityholders have entered into a Share Exchange Agreement. The Share Exchange Agreement provides that the Reverse Take-over will be accomplished through, among other things:
- the completion of the Spin-out by Fieldex to QUAD Resources (see details below);
- the conversion of all of Idénergie’s convertible notes into Class “A” shares of Idénergie shortly prior to the closing of the Reverse Take-over;
- the acquisition by Fieldex of 100% of the issued and outstanding Class “A” shares of Idénergie through the issuance by Fieldex of an aggregate of 35 million common shares, having an aggregate deemed value of $4,900,000, to the shareholders of Idénergie in exchange for their shares of Idénergie, on the basis of 500 Fieldex shares, at a deemed price of $0.14 per share, for every Class “A” share of Idénergie, as a result of which Idénergie will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fieldex and the shareholders of Idénergie will hold an aggregate of 35 million Fieldex common shares;
- the change of the corporate name of Fieldex to Idénergie Corporation or other similar name (“New Idénergie”) so as to reflect the Reverse Take-over;
- the appointment to the Board of Directors of New Idénergie of three nominees of Idénergie (expected to be Pierre Blanchet, Denis Bastien and Éric Springuel), who will join two of the current directors of Fieldex (Martin Dallaire and Jean-François Madore) and one person (Sébastien Bellefleur) who will be a nominee for election as a director at an annual and special meeting of shareholders to be called by Fieldex (the “Meeting”);
- the appointment of a new management team for New Idénergie, comprised of the current Idénergie management team; and
- the completion of a concurrent private placement by New Idénergie of a minimum of 13 million and a maximum of 20 million New Idénergie common shares at a price of $0.25 per share, for gross proceeds to New Idénergie of a minimum of $3.25 million and a maximum of $5 million (the “New Idénergie Private Placement”).
At the closing of the Reverse Take-over, assuming a New Idénergie Private Placement of a minimum of 13 million and a maximum of 20 million New Idénergie common shares and based on the number of Fieldex common shares currently issued and outstanding (15,668,023), there will be a minimum of 63,668,023 and a maximum of 70,668,023 New Idénergie common shares issued and outstanding, of which: (i) current shareholders of Idénergie will hold an aggregate of 35 million shares (54.97% in the event of a minimum New Idénergie Private Placement and 49.53% in the event of a maximum New Idénergie Private Placement), (ii) current Fieldex shareholders will hold an aggregate of 15,668,023 shares (24.61% in the event of a minimum New Idénergie Private Placement and 22.17% in the event of a maximum New Idénergie Private Placement), and (iii) new investors will hold in the aggregate a minimum of 13 million shares (20.42%) and maximum of 20 million shares (28.30%). Idénergie will use the net proceeds from the New Idénergie Private Placement to carry out its business plan of developing and commercializing advanced renewable energy products, including its advanced power conversion technology, and for working capital purposes. Fieldex (New Idénergie ) will own 100% of the shares of Idénergie.
At the closing of the Reverse Take-over, all Fieldex stock options and common share purchase warrants then issued and outstanding will remain unchanged and in effect.
Upon completion of the Reverse Take-over, New Idénergie intends to be listed on the TSXV as a Tier-2 Technology Issuer and will carry the same business as Idénergie.
Idénergie is a clean technology company that develops, produces, integrates and sells innovative renewable energy products and solutions and is highly specialized in the field of power electronics, more precisely in the development and future commercialization of converter products allowing the conversion of renewable energy sources to electrical grids and remote off-grid applications.
Following the development of its first product, a residential river turbine, which uses Idénergie’s advanced power electronics knowledge platform, Idénergie is currently developing and preparing to commercialize a next-generation renewable energy management platform for residential solar and renewable installations (the “Residential Energy Converters”) featuring advanced smart-grid capabilities. Idénergie also sells its renewable energy expertise and realizes mid-scale renewable energy installation projects for communities and businesses worldwide.
During its first six years of existence, Idénergie was focused on the development of a unique river turbine with the objective of permitting people near a flowing river to generate electricity from the power of the river. Multiple evolving prototypes were created and resulted in the first commercial river turbine product in the residential renewable sector. It offers a reliable, predictable and continuous source of electricity. Designed to perform in shallow depths, the turbine offers a low-maintenance waterproof generator equipped with a smart energy converter that allows for advanced operations such as auto-starting of the turbine, continuous power optimization and remote monitoring capabilities. One river turbine can offer up to the energy contribution of twelve solar panels.
The electrical power generation sector in North America is in transition as electricity producers must adapt their way of doing business to allow for the growth and integration of distributed energy resources (solar, wind, battery storage, etc.) on their electrical networks without affecting the network’s stability, quality and availability.
Idénergie is in the process of designing and developing the Residential Energy Converters product for off-grid and grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) systems which are typically composed of a set of solar panels, a power inverter, and a set of batteries. Through its incubation with Green Mountain Power, a Vermont utility company, Idénergie’s research team, after assessing Green Mountain Power’s requirements, has developed over the last few years an innovative power electric platform to respond to its needs. Idénergie, through its next-generation converter technology, believes it can quickly capture market share in this growing worldwide market estimated by Idénergie at 60 million potential residences in the United States alone (sources U.S. Energy Information administration https://www.eia.gov/electricity/sales_revenue_price/pdf/table1.pdf and Solar Power Corp https://solarpowerrocks.com/arizona-solar/#netmeter.
Idénergie’s innovative residential energy management system at the base of its converter product line integrates into one platform highly-efficient solar panel conversion modules, inverter modules to generate AC current, battery charger modules and a smart module to communicate and exchange electricity to the grid. Idénergie innovates by providing utility companies with access to data from each module and allowing the smart grid to send orders to each converter regarding storage and distributed energy resources (DER) management. The processing is done using an ultrafast energy management technology driven by fiber-optic communication and fast micro grid stability architecture. The system is scalable, modular and expandable. The converter modules are based on a high-frequency SiCMOS-based technology making them lightweight and produced at competitive cost, providing Idénergie with an opportunity to rapidly penetrate this market. The Residential Energy Converter products are expected to be commercialized in the second quarter of 2018.
Idénergie also offers engineering and installation services in the power electronic field for renewable energy.
