Each Warrant has a term of 48 months from the Issue Date (the "Warrant Term") and an exercise price of CDN$0.07 per common share, subject to acceleration in the event that the common shares of CIELO, listed on a recognized stock exchange, trade at CDN$0.15 or higher for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, in which event CIELO may provide a notice to holders that the Warrant Term will terminate 30 days from the date of notice.
Although the Offering is non-brokered, the Company has paid reasonable customary brokers' and/or finders' commissions in connection with the completion of the Offering of up to 8% in cash of the gross proceeds raised by such broker(s)/finder(s) and issue finder warrants (the "Finder Warrants") of up to 8% of the total number of common shares that would be issued to subscribers introduced to the Company by such broker(s)/finder(s), if 100% of the Principal under the subject Debentures is converted. The Finder Warrants have a 48-month term from the date of issue and an exercise price of CDN$0.07 per share.
Net proceeds of the Offering are being used to scale-up production of high-grade renewable fuel at the Company's green waste to renewable fuel facility in Aldersyde, Alberta (the "Aldersyde Facility"), as well as for general working capital purposes.
A total 1,619 Units were issued pursuant to the Final Tranches for gross proceeds of CDN$1,619,000, including 12,142,500 Warrants and 10,407,857 Prepaid Interest Shares. Pursuant to the Final Tranches, the Company also issued 974,400 Finder Warrants and paid CDN$123,920 in cash commissions. CDN$30,000 of the gross proceeds of the Final Tranches was a settlement of debt owing to related party. In total throughout the Offering, 4,694.64 Units have been issued for gross proceeds of CDN$4,694,642.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory four month hold period.

ALDERSYDE FACILITY UPDATE
With the newly engineered equipment and flow processes being in place and operating at the Aldersyde Facility, as a proactive measure Cielo disassembled the new equipment to confirm that there were no internal operational issues needing to be addressed before scaling up production. Management has determined that the equipment is operating as engineered. The new equipment is currently being reassembled after which the facility will be placed back on production. Updates regarding continuous-flow production volumes will be forthcoming.
