We are pleased to announce that we have recently closed an oversubscribed non-brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts for total gross proceeds of C$12,251,812 at a price of C$0.35 per subscription receipt. Due to significant demand, the financing was upsized from the originally targeted amount of C$6 million.
Wecontinue to work on our ‘go public’ initiative to list our common shares on theTSX Venture Exchange and are pleased to announce that we have filed ourpreliminary prospectus with the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”). We have already filed an application withTSXV and have reservedthe ticker symbol “ROOF”.
Neil Currie, CEO and Director of Northstar, stated “On conversion of the subscription receipts, we will have the capital required to commence commercial production at the Empower Facility, our first asphalt shingle facility in Delta, BC, and to begin evaluating expansion opportunities across North America. We would like to thank all our shareholders for helping us achieve this important milestone for growth. We believe we have a significant ESG and cleantech value proposition and are excited about the next stage of our growth.”
We intend to use the proceeds from the financing to pay the costs of commencing commercial production at our Empower Facility in Delta, to fund potential expansion through the building of a second facility, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes. The proceeds of the financing will be held in escrow by Computershare Trust Company of Canada pending issuance of a receipt for a final prospectus, at which time each subscription receipt will automatically convert into one unit for no additional consideration and the escrow agent will simultaneously release the escrowed funds to Northstar. Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant, entitling the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of C$0.50 for two years. We intend on listing the common shares and the unit warrants on the TSXV.
Launch of New Corporate Website and Re-Branding Complete
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new corporate website www.northstarcleantech.com. We believe the recent re-branding of the Company to “Northstar Clean Technologies” is better aligned with our long-term goal of reducing landfill waste through the planned implementation of our clean and environmentally friendly technology for processing and repurposing single-use asphalt shingles. We believe the long-term potential for ESG and cleantech-focused companies remains promising.

Northstar is a clean technology company focused on the extraction and recovery of components from single-use asphalt shingles. We are located in the green-friendly jurisdiction of Metro Vancouver. Our mission is to be the leading shingle material recovery provider in North America with plans to extract 99% of the recovered components from asphalt shingles that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. Northstar’s first Empower Facility in Delta, BC has a design process called the “Bitumen Extraction and Separation Technology”, which breaks down asphalt shingles into the three primary components: liquid asphalt, aggregate and fiber. Upon commercial production, these three recovered components are expected to be re- sold back into the market for “next use”. Our clean technology is expected to have a significant impact on the environment by reducing landfill usage from asphalt shingles, while also meeting the robust market demand for our by-products. We plan to target various expansion opportunities in Canada and the USA. Northstar is led by a team of experienced and successful industry professionals with a combined 250 years of operational and capital markets expertise.
