Toronto, Ontario, August 31st, 2020 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA: 2TL) (“GreenBank or the Company”) is very pleased to announce that it has entered into a contract with The Substantia Group to assist GreenBank’s executive management team in fund raising, investment deal-flow analysis, due diligence, strategic planning, administrative and operational support, marketing and investor communications.
On July 28th, 2020, GreenBank announced its merchant banking strategy going forward, which includes working to raise funds and continuing to grow its portfolio of high potential companies. Today’s agreement with The Substantia Group provides a proven, robust infrastructure and powerful additional resources to execute effectively on this strategy.
GreenBank anticipates that the next 90 days will prove to be a period of intense activity for the Company as it endeavors to build out its platform for substantial future growth. Consequently, the initial contract term with The Substantia Group is for 90 days and is renewable at the option of GreenBank. The Chief Executive of The Substantia Group is Mr. Terry Pullen, who also serves as a Director of GreenBank. The contract with The Substantia Group is designed to assist GreenBank in achieving the following:
- Update and improve GreenBank’s website and internet presence.
- Enhance and communicate the potential of GreenBank’s existing investments.
- Carry out detailed and forensic due diligence in relation to GreenBank’s pipeline of potential investments.
- Work with the management teams of certain Greenbank portfolio companies in order to produce detailed operational plans and execution strategies.
- Raise a minimum of $2,000,000CAD on terms that enhance the strategic position of GreenBank. This may include The Substantia Group leveraging its client base of high net worth and sophisticated investors as a potential source of investment into GreenBank.
- Increase market awareness of GreenBank amongst professional investors and brokers to an extent sufficient to spur an average trading volume of at least $25,000CAD per day in GreenBank’s common shares. It is GreenBank’s belief that this will help ensure its shares become increasingly attractive as a potential currency for future acquisitions.
In the event that these objectives are achieved within the next 90 days, The Substantia Group will receive compensation of £48,000GBP (~$84,000CAD as of the date of this release) and 500,000 fully paid newly issued Greenbank common shares. In the event that the objectives are not achieved, then Substantia will not receive any payment.
David Lonsdale, GreenBank Capital’s CEO said, “I am delighted to have executed this service agreement with The Substantia Group. It provides us with the additional resources that we need to implement our merchant banking growth strategy and create added value for our investors. We are pleased that these additional resources in terms of infrastructure and execution capability are being provided entirely on a success-only basis, underscoring Substantia’s confidence in Greenbank’s potential to develop into a large global company”.
Terry Pullen, CEO of The Substantia Group said, “Substantia is excited to become part of the team helping to deliver Greenbank’s exponential growth strategy as it seeks to develop into a successful global company. The Substantia Group is highly motivated and inspired to be working with GreenBank and will endeavor on every level to over deliver on the services provided, in these changing times of unique opportunity”
