GreenBank Share Second Quarterly Shareholder Update

The GreenBank Board share a quarterly shareholder update containing the latest information from portfolio companies and from the business internally.

Toronto, Ontario, 6th July 2023 – GreenBank Capital (CSE: GBC, OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA: 2TL) (“GreenBank” or the “Company”) are pleased to share the second quarterly shareholder update, covering the period from  April to June:


Foreword from CEO, Terry Pullen


It is my privilege to be able to share with you some recent updates from GreenBank, both internally and externally, regarding our investments and products within our portfolio.

From the beginning of this year, we decided to deliver a quarterly report, to ensure shareholders were updated on the progress of the business regularly. This edition will outlines the latest, including the most recent update on the Strategic Review which we have continued to build internally.

Whilst some of our portfolio companies have performed positively during the period, our core focus has been aligning the Company internally, and the next stage of the Review is outlined below. The CSE remains relatively stagnant, with little movement across the market as a whole, and global inflation has shattered investor confidence. This being said, we retain our position that the GreenBank Capital market capitalisation remains undervalued in the medium-term.

Best regards,

Terry Pullen

Chief Executive Officer


Internal Updates

Strategic Review (Pending completion)

As part of the next stage of the Strategic Review, the Company was pleased to announce on 20 June 2023 that an independent external consultancy, JV Capital (JVC), has been engaged by the Company to provide external input into that Review. The work to be carried out by JVC covers four areas which  are as follows: a comprehensive analysis of current investments, developing actionable recommendations, assisting with the implementation of said recommendations and advising on strategy post-implementation.

Details of each area of their work are outlined below.

  1. 1. Comprehensive Analysis of Investments: JVC is to conduct an evaluation of the Company’s existing investments, including their impact on the Company’s market perception. This will include providing a detailed assessment of the debts associated with some of these investments, including those involving Staminier Limited.
  2. Development of Actionable Recommendations: Based on their comprehensive analysis, JVC will provide recommendations to the board of Greenbank for potential courses of action pertaining to the Company’s investments. These could potentially involve the restructuring of debt and equity interests, as well as other strategic considerations.
  3. Implementation: JVC will assist with the implementation of those of the team’s recommendations that are adopted by the Board and provide quarterly analysis of progress to the GreenBank Board.
  4. Strategic Direction Post-implementation:  JVC will offer further insights into the optimal strategic direction for GreenBank following implementation of the short-term recommendations. This will be done with the aim of ensuring sustained growth and success following the realignment of the Company’s investment portfolio.

The objective of this review conducted by JV Capital is for GreenBank to become more focused and efficient whilst striving towards its goal of nurturing and supporting income-generating businesses of the future.


Private Placement

The Company were pleased to announce the closing of the first tranche of the Private Placement on 20 April 2023, successfully raising C$448,111.88, all of which represent the conversion of outstanding debts owed by the Company, including all Directors and Officers.

The Private Placement remains open and there are negotiations on-going with interested parties but nothing further to announce at this stage.


External Updates


Shareholding: 73,344 ordinary shares (3.53%)

As we announed on 18 April 2023 CodiKoat, developers of the fastest ISO certified antimicrobial and antiviral coating technology in the world, have also recently announced the appointment of a new CEO, Blake Gudgel, the expansion of its labs near Cambridge, the recruitment of additional staff and some exciting new commercial developments. 

We were also pleased to able to report in April that CodiKoat had successfully carried out an equity fundraising.  We can now report that, based on the valution for CodiKoat that the investment round implies,  GreenBank’s investment into the portfolio company of C$928,792 (which was completed in May 2021) is now worth C$1,919,875. Although as of yet unrealised, if this valuation were to be sustained on a sale of GreenBank’s stake in the company it would represent more than a 2x return on the Company’s initial investment.
