Financing and Debentures
For 2019 there were five rounds of financing (private placements) and one round of debt settlement. In total there were 107M shared issued at 0.05 cents; roughly half attributed for debt settlement. Price trend in warrant is noted.
In addition to Housing, EHT has diversified its business in 2019 by launching a new unit (AgTech) while creating a new lines of business (Indoor Agriculture; Micro Grower). Partnership with Growratio and Canadore College were instrumental catalyst. The key will be the ability to convert these opportunities into revenues in a timely manner.
While the JV with UCI in Ghana is slated to begin in late January 2020, longtime shareholder will know that its been a long time coming and that further delays are possible. However, the announcement of Axia Material had an impact on valuation this week which may suggest a form of progress on other fronts. In the last two days, EHT broke R1 and R2.
EHT has ruled out share consolidations in 2019 and successfully raised fund multiple times above its valuations ($0.05 cents) in multiple non-brokered placements with insider participation. However, investors still need to consider the number of shares introduced to the float (107M), as well as, the number of possible warrants.
Indeed, 2020 may indeed be a "breakout year", but the last few days perhaps a breakout week?
