In addition to the continued advancement of Clyde Gateway, SHRC.V has announced deals with Silica Desarrollos (Arboleda), as well as, Argus and Claridge Homes. The company also made two appointments: an SVP Finance and an Advisory Board Member. SHRC.V took a $1.3M Loan (which it repaid before the due date) and entered in a relationship with Partner Capital Group and disclosed an intent to raise a $4M private placement.
To date SHRC.V reported only closing $0.8M or 20% of the total amount. Notably, the stock price has held up relatively well despite this news. Perhaps SHRC.V is due to make further announcements on that front but currently, the results are well below the mark. And if no further announcements are made, the company will have to find a way to raise more fund. Pending no major release, the likelihood is to be below $0.32 cents.
To put the current financing in perspective, the last round was back in May 2018 for $2.5M at $0.40 cents. SHRC.V was oversubscribed on this placement raising $4M of which $2.3M was raised in the first tranche. These warrants were at $0.60 cents. The current placement warrant are at $0.40 cents.
SHRC.V does have a number of ongoing projects and distribution partnerships agreement (i.e. ATC, Frontier. Midwest Machinery Co, Johnson & Barrow, Highmark (NYC) , and ENGIE). Perhaps, more news and revenues are to come on this front.
In a early November 2018, Ross Burton reported that the company was expecting $1.5 to $2M in the next three months. The $1.3M Loan seems similar to this forecast. It may be that the the market is awaiting the next earnings from the company to factor in valuation.
