Carmanah Sells Solar Engineering Business with help from Alexander Capital

April 3, 2017  -

Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) (“the Company” or “Carmanah”) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Carmanah Solar Power Corp. (“CSPC”), has completed the sale of its solar power engineering, procurement and construction business (“Solar EPC”).  The proceeds of the asset sale were USD 2.0 million and is subject to final adjustments.

In addition to these proceeds CSPC will retain responsibility for four solar power construction portfolios that are at, or close to substantially complete.  It is expected that these portfolios will achieve final completion before the end of 2017.  While most of the revenue related to these portfolios has been recognized, CSPC expects to collect accounts and notes receivable in excess of USD 5.4 million on final completion. Once the requirements of the remaining portfolios are complete, CSPC will permanently cease its solar power EPC business.

“In October of 2016 we announced our intention to divest our two Power Segment businesses. The sale of our solar EPC business completes the first part of this task and we maintain our intention to divest of our off-grid solar power business.” said John Simmons CEO. “We intend to use the proceeds of these divestitures, together with cash in hand, to invest in the growth of our strategic Lighting and Signals businesses organically and by way of acquisition.”

The proceeds of the sale of business together with the collection of all amounts owing on retained projects will generate in excess of USD 7.4 million.

Alexander Capital Group Inc. advised Carmanah in the sale of Solar EPC.
