Synex Provides Corporate Update

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 4, 2021) -  Synex International Inc. (TSX: SXI) ("Synex" or the "Company") is pleased to provide a corporate update on key developments made by the Company since its annual general meeting.

Key Corporate Developments & Milestones

Some of the Company's recent highlights include the following:

  • completed a comprehensive review of the Company's power plants and implemented progressive maintenance plans and schedules, which the Company expects to lead to future operational strengths;

  • completed the acquisition of the issued and outstanding shares of Sea Breeze Power Corp. ("SeaBreeze"), the holder of approximately 18 investigative licenses suitable for wind, solar and storage sites in British Columbia;

  • strengthened the Company's investor relations activities, with a focus on more comprehensive disclosure and an enhanced investor relations page on the Company's website;

  • completed a comprehensive review of the Company's operating units to identify opportunities to eliminate unnecessary costs and to streamline corporate structure and operations; and

  • refocused the Company's acquisition strategy on mid-sized renewable energy projects and entered into non-binding non-disclosure agreements in connection with possible acquisition targets in this category.

Ongoing Developments

The Company continues to work towards the refinancing of its power plant assets, which, once completed, is expected to provide stronger cashflow as a result of reduced interest expenses and longer amortization periods. The Company expects to complete the refinancing in April 2021.

Daniel J. Russell, President of the Company, stated, "In the last six months we have completed a comprehensive review of our operations and refocused the Company's acquisition strategy on mid-size ($5-20 million) renewable energy projects, a strategy that will allow operators of such projects to obtain sought after liquidity for operations traditionally considered too small for the larger institutions in the industry. The Company is focused on adding valuable projects to the Company's portfolio in a sector central to the Company's long-term corporate strategy. In connection with this re-focused acquisition strategy, the Company has also entered into several non-disclosure agreements to evaluate potential targets, which will be disclosed in greater detail in the event that the Company elects to proceed with any of such acquisitions."
