(TSXV: UGE) (OTCQB: UGEIF) (the "Company" or "UGE"), a leader in commercial and community solar energy solutions, announced today that it has appointed Sophic Capital Inc.

"Sophic Capital has followed UGE for the past two years and have been great supporters of our story," said UGE International CEO Nick Blitterswyk. "As we continue to build momentum in the business by focusing on self-developed projects in the U.S. and Philippines, we look forward to leveraging Sophic's expertise and relationships to communicate our story to a broader base of investors."
"UGE International's management has done an outstanding job transitioning and scaling," said Sean Peasgood, CEO of Sophic Capital. "Regulations, especially in the northeast U.S. region, lead us to believe that the Company's pipeline and backlog conversion is starting to accelerate, and UGE clients whom we've spoken with have not only extolled UGE's commitment to deliver on what is promised but also have recommended UGE to their peers. These endorsements along with a management team that has a significant equity stake plus a business that addresses ESG, renewables, and solar energy themes solidifies our conviction that UGE is an undiscovered story that will resonate very well in the investment community. On behalf of everyone at Sophic Capital, I want to thank UGE for selecting us, and we look forward to communicating their story to investors."
UGE International's engagement with Sophic Capital is a 12-month term, on a fee-for-services basis of CAD$7,000 per month.
