Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 24, 2023) - ShiftCarbon (CSE: SHFT) (OTC Pink: SHIFF) (formerly Tracesafe) (the "Company"), a global leader in the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms and an innovator in end-to-end decarbonization solutions announced today several strategic developments that redefine the company's trajectory and reinforce its commitment to innovation and focus on solutions that incentivize companies to effectively measure, reduce, and offset harmful emissions.
Diverging Areas of Sustainability Ecosystem
After careful consideration and thorough discussions between both parties, ShiftCarbon and Zero Carbon Technologies Limited have agreed to terminate the previously announced non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") in accordance with the terms of the LOI. Zero Carbon will further concentrate its efforts on industrial facility development around the globe with a primary focus on battery recycling, an approach that requires a robust and large-scale operational framework. At the same time, ShiftCarbon, with its deep roots in technology innovation, will continue to focus on delivering pioneering carbon management solutions to connect the world's carbon markets and help organizations meet their rapidly evolving decarbonization goals.
Termination of Letter of Intent with Zero Carbon Technologies
As a result, the proposed Transaction (as described in the announcement dated August 30, 2023) will not proceed. The business transformation steps that had been designed to facilitate this transaction, including the IoT Spin-Off and Carbon Trading Spin-Off, are placed on hold. ShiftCarbon and Zero Carbon Technologies remain committed to a shared vision of a sustainable future and will continue to explore collaborative opportunities that align with both organizations' offerings and market objectives.
Battery Lifecycle and MRV
ShiftCarbon will soon provide updates on its latest product initiatives aimed at bringing the company's measurement reporting and verification (MRV) approach to the global battery market. ShiftCarbon, with its expertise in IoT and emissions tracking, has been developing a solution to address vital technological gaps in battery performance and lifecycle management. ShiftCarbon's efforts are aimed at helping energy sector customers more accurately insure their assets while contributing to a more sustainable and accountable energy ecosystem.
Strategic Refocus and Subsidiary Wind-Down
In addition to halting the previously announced spin-off initiatives, ShiftCarbon's subsidiary Tracesafe Asia Pacific Pte Ltd will be winding down operations. A liquidator has been appointed in Singapore to manage the process. This wind-down will allow the company to focus on opportunities that align more closely with its long-term strategic vision and the role of decarbonization solutions.
