Raise Production Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results and Provides Operations Update

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - August 24, 2021) - Raise Production Inc. (TSXV: RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. Selected financial and operational information is outlined below and should be read in conjunction with Raise's financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, which are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE QUARTER

  • The Company negotiated during the quarter and announced on July 12, 2021, the intention to complete a reverse takeover transaction with Cleantek Industries Inc. ("Cleantek") with Cleantek completing a broker private placement for $10 million prior to the closing date of the business combination.

  • The Company completed the full conversion of its secured convertible debentures to common shares amounting to the extinguishment of $2,334,027 in principal and interest.

  • The net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 decreased 60% and 70%, respectively, compared to the same periods in the prior year, primarily as a result of the Company continuing to implement actions to preserve its cash position.

  • The Company continued to assist Q2 Artificial Lift Services ("Q2 ALS") with its exclusive license agreement for the manufacturing, sales and service of the Company's HARPTM and REALTM products including the transfer of Raise's remaining HARPTM and REALTM inventory to Q2 ALS.

PRESIDENT'S UPDATE

The Company is providing an update to its shareholders on its financial results and recent activities related to its business and operations.

The Company has three systems that can be used independently or in combination in horizontal wellbores:

  1. the High Angle Reciprocating Pump ("HARP");

  2. the Raise Efficient Artificial Lift ("REAL") Horizontal Separator;

  3. the Horizontal Artificial Recovery Technology ("HART").

As stated in the Company's press release dated May 27, 2021, Raise finalized its exclusive rights agreement with Q2 ALS for the manufacturing, sales and service of the Company's HARPTM and REALTM products in exchange for a ten-year royalty payment on all Raise products sold as complete components or parts. The Company continues to assist Q2 ALS with the license agreement to ensure a smooth transition of Raise's customers and products. All Raise's remaining HARPTM and REALTM inventory was transferred to Q2 ALS in May 2021 to be paid for on an "as-used" basis once the Q2 ALS's existing HARPTM inventory received through its previous distribution agreement has been exhausted.

As stated in the Company's press release dated July 12, 2021, Raise entered into an arrangement agreement with Cleantek whereby Raise and Cleantek will complete a business combination pursuant to a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) (the "Transaction"). The Transaction will result in an arm's length "reverse takeover" of Raise and the combined business of both companies will continue under the name "Cleantek Industries Inc.". In conjunction with entering into the Transaction, Cleantek entered into an agreement with a syndicate of investment dealers for a brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts of Cleantek on a best-efforts basis for minimum gross proceeds of $10 million (the "Financing").

The Company is pleased to inform its shareholders that the process is proceeding as per the planned schedule with the Financing expected to close on or about August 31, 2021 and the Transaction expected to close on or about October 31, 2021, subject to receiving all required regulatory approvals. The Company will provide further updates when available.

In the interim period, the Company continues to take significant steps to reduce its monthly operating expenses and preserve its cash position to meet its financial liability obligations as they become due. These measures included extinguishing the Company's long-term convertible debt in exchange for common shares, significantly reducing the Company's salary expense through terminations, salary reductions and receiving government assistance through the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy programs, selling all of its property and equipment, cancelling its office, machine and vehicle leases and reducing general operating expenses to minimum levels.
