Corporate Restructure to Separate Sunrise from Water Division

14.09.2020  |  GlobeNewswire

MELBOURNE, Sept. 13, 2020 - Co-Chairman, Robert Friedland, and CEO, Sam Riggall, of Clean TeQ Holdings Ltd. (‘Clean TeQ’ or ‘Company’) (ASX/TSX:CLQ; OTCQX:CTEQF) provide the following update on a range of corporate activities currently underway which are aimed at enhancing shareholder value.


Clean TeQ’s water division is focused on the design, procurement, construction and operation of tailored water purification and recycling solutions in the mining, municipal and agri-food sectors. It also undertakes significant research and development into new water treatment technologies, including BIOCLENS?, and through the Company’s interest in the NematiQ joint venture, which is pursuing the development of graphene oxide membranes for water purification.

In the past 12 months Clean TeQ Water has demonstrated the efficacy of its proprietary technologies at projects in Oman, Australia and the DRC and is now well established to secure and grow a healthy pipeline of new work. With design, engineering and manufacturing facilities located in Australia and China, it is well positioned to capitalise on a rapidly growing water treatment market.

This success provides Clean TeQ with the opportunity to consider a separation of its water division from the remainder of its business, comprising the Sunrise Project and the Company’s other mineral exploration activities in New South Wales.

Establishing stand-alone, separately-listed entities will allow shareholders to more readily manage their own desired exposure to each of the businesses, as well as simplifying the investment proposition to new investors.

In the case of Sunrise, it also provides an opportunity to pursue investment and funding structures using a corporate vehicle comprising an asset suite focused exclusively on battery materials.

The Company has commenced a formal review for consideration of the Board, which will provide a recommendation to shareholders in due course. The review will consider taxation, structuring and other regulatory implications. The Company expects to conclude the review in Q4 of CY 2020.


As per the Notice of Annual General Meeting dated 11 September 2020, the Company is seeking shareholder approval for the Company to consolidate its issued share capital through the conversion of every ten shares into one share (‘Share Consolidation’).

The Company currently has approximately 746 million Shares on issue. The Board considers it more appropriate to have a smaller number of shares on issue and a correspondingly higher share price. The Board also considers that the Share Consolidation will result in a more appropriate and effective capital structure for the Company and a share price more appealing to a wider range of investors, particularly offshore institutional investors.

The consolidation will also likely result in a more appropriate and transparent share price outcome for shareholders if a separation of the businesses is to proceed.

The Notice of Annual General Meeting dated 11 September 2020 contained an indicative timetable in relation to the proposed share consolidation. That indicative timetable and process will apply to shareholders in Australia. Canadian registered shareholders should expect to receive a letter of transmittal from the Company which will set out the instructions required to receive their shares on a post-share consolidation basis.


Clean TeQ is also undertaking a cost-benefit analysis of the Company’s secondary listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (‘TSX’). Approximately 1.6% of Clean TeQ’s shares are held on the TSX share register. The review will also consider what impact a delisting from TSX may have on streamlining and simplifying any applicable regulatory processes if a separation of the businesses is to proceed.
