This step provides security to the joint venture during the build period as the project moves forward. The additional lands now being provided will help the group to add a stronger partner which is necessary to secure the funding from Elevate Finance and EDC.

The project now plans to start construction late in the third quarter of 2019, having been delayed, as announced, by the need to add a stronger subcontractor to fulfill the credit requirements of Elevate Finance and EDC.

There were twenty-five news release for the period! During which the stock traded as high as $0.11 cents but closed today at $0.045 cents. There were 10 days with insider purchases and 4 days with insider sales. The insider sales were the result of a disagreement over debenture settlement now resolved.

Project Activities

Similarly to the previous period, numerous announcements and updates were provided on the Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkino Faso, US, & Puerto Rico.

In addition, EHT.V reported new orders from AhmadMedix Limited Pakistan (AMP), Burkina Faso (on hold), Ghana Health Ministry, Ghana Works, HiFarms (canceled), Brock University, as well as, a distribution agreement with Energia Power Solutions and Growratio Inc.

Ghana and Ivory Coast projects are the biggest. These are now making progress after numerous set backs. The issue is EHT's balance sheet is such that it has been unable to secure the funds to move forward. On February 11, EHT issued a release stating that it awaited EDC guaranteed approval which it has yet to receive (release identify "next week"), One month later (March 15). EHT updated the market regarding the status.

Update progress on the Ghana company’s loan application with Elevate Finance and EDC. At this time it has been determined that the company needs to improve its balance sheet by partnering with a larger company. EHT plan to resubmit to Elevate and EDC in the futture.

Today's announcement was a positive and clearly stated that the UCI Ghana project are now set to start in Q3 2019.

Financing and Debentures

There were three non-brokered private placements for the period. Two at $0.05 cents - warrants $0.075 cents; One at $0.08 cents - warrants $0.12 cents. Total proceeds are estimated to $1.2M. In our previous note we reported, two placements 1) May 14 2018, ($0.085 cents - warrant $0.15 cents) and July 17 2018, ($0.05 cents - warrant at $0.075 cents). Until EHT secure funds for these project via EDC and Elevate, there are likely to be more placements.

As for Debentures, in their last MD&A (April 1), EHT reported a decreased in interest expense to $2.35M (2017: $4,50M) due to renegotiated debenture interest rate of 8% (from 18%) for some holders, as well as paying down loans of 12% annual interest. However, in order to reach this objective back in November 6, 2017, EHT issued 75M shares at $0.10 cents.

Peel Asset Sale

Again, the sale closure with Reliant First Nation Limited Partnership to a third party is still outstanding. The last update via release was on October 5, 2018 reported: "The date of conclusion is expected to be in the near term with further updates to be provided as events warrant". As a reminder, the original announcement regarding this matter was made on is more than 2 years old (August 12, 2016). In the last MD&A (April 1), EHT indicated:

"As indicated in the notes to the consolidated financial statements (Note 17), litigation will be required to receive the proceeds of this sale. Therefore,management has increased the allowance against the expected net amount of the asset by $3.5M (2017: $25,307) in order to bring the net realizable value of the asset to nil due to the uncertainty of litigation."

Summary

There is no doubt that the revenue potential of EHT.V is large but the company needs to find a way to fund their projects. After two years of waiting, the last MD&A (April 1) revealed to shareholders that the Peel Asset Sales are actually now a liability as there is the possibility that the funds may not be recoverable. This is yet another issue the market needs to content with and certainly not the first write off of this magnitude for EHT.

Even in the event that EHT is able to receive funding from EDC and Elevate, history has shown that the actual timeline of the projects are very much preliminary and contingent on numerous factors. Phase I needs to be complete before Phase II and the remaining part of the agreement.

Another head wind is the number of shares outstanding, along with the private placement and debenture shares issued in the last 20 months. Hence it comes at no surprise that the Management Information Circular for the AGM first item on the list is:

"(a) to consider and, if deemed advisable, pass a special resolution approving an amendment to the Corporation’s articles to consolidate its common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every five (5) pre consolidation common shares outstanding to occur in the discretion of the directors at any point in time during the 12 months following April 26, 2019.

It will be interesting to see what comes in the next few weeks. The last MD&A and Management Information Circular provides additional reflections.
