On 16 May 2018, Pearl announced it had entered into a Supply Agreement with Australian Tyre Processors Pty Ltd, to take and recycle ATP’s supply of used tyres shredded to Pearl’s required size and for which Pearl receives a minimum gate fee of $75 per tonne from ATP. ATP sources, collects and shreds used tyres from customers such as shire councils, mining services providers, freight and transportation service providers and tyre services providers. The Supply Agreement also provided Pearl with the option to acquire ATP’s business with the strategy of ensuring greater control over Pearl’s supply chain and realising increased revenues from the tyre collection and shredding business. The combination of Pearl’s unique technology to earn revenue from reclaiming value from waste tyres through its thermal process and the ability to earn revenues from tyre collection has always been a key part of Pearl’s larger strategy and business model. Pearl secured all material terms with ATP for the acquisition of its business and Pearl now has 30 days to complete its due diligence. Significant competitive advantage over traditional waste tyre collection companies Should the acquisition of ATP be completed, Pearl will be competitively placed over traditional waste tyre collection businesses that typically are required to export their shredded tyres. This adds costs and increases risks for traditional tyre collection businesses. In order to fund the ATP acquisition and ongoing expansion and commercialisation, Pearl has received firm commitments to raise approximately $1.63 million via a Private Placement, offered to sophisticated and professional investors through the issue of approximately 10,866,660 fully paid ordinary shares in Pearl. Participants of the Private Placement will also be issued one free attaching unlisted option to subscribe for an ordinary share in Pearl for every two Placement Shares issued under the Private Placement, exercisable at $0.230 and expiring 12 months from the date of issue. In addition, a director and management of Pearl have committed to subscribing for 1,533,333 Placement Shares (raising $230,000 in total), subject to shareholder approval where required, to be sought at a general meeting of Pearl to be held at the earliest convenient time. Pearl is providing eligible shareholders the opportunity to participate in a share purchase plan to subscribe for additional shares in Pearl to raise approximately $1.0 million on the same pricing terms as that offered under the Private Placement. The board of directors reserve the right to withdrawn, scale back and/or close the SPP early, as well as accept any oversubscriptions. Under the SPP, eligible shareholders have the opportunity to purchase up to $15,000 worth of fully paid ordinary shares in Pearl at an issue price of $0.150 per share (SPP Shares), irrespective of the size of their shareholding. Participants of the SPP will also be issued one free attaching unlisted option to subscribe for an ordinary share in Pearl for every two SPP Shares issued under the SPP, exercisable at $0.230 and expiring on the same date as the options issued under the Private Placement.
