MagneGas Closes Sale of $1.9 Million Gasification Unit to Produce MagneGas2 in Europe
One of the Largest Gasification Unit Sales in Company History to Launch Proven Product in Europe
TAMPA, Florida, October 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, announced today the closing of a $1.9 million gasification unit sale to introduce and produce MagneGas2® to European Markets. This sale completes the process as previously disclosed in a letter of intent announced on September 26, 2017.
"We are very pleased to close on this transformational transaction for MagneGas," commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas. "We are very optimistic regarding the success of MagneGas2® in the European market due to its enhanced adoption of clean technology solutions and due to the fact that our product should benefit from carbon credits. As part of our due diligence meetings in September, we heard first-hand from potential gas clients as well as feedback from their consulting partner that there is significant demand for a renewable cutting fuel like MagneGas2®. Given that our product is already proven in the USA and the fact that it is the world's only renewable cutting fuel may make MagneGas2® expansion in Europe eligible for funding from European Union banks. Along with our partner, we have identified meaningful opportunities in the shipping, rail, industrial and other end markets. As a result, we expect to sell many more gasification units into these markets for years to come."
"As part of our recent meetings in Europe, we met with various corporate advisors and government parties involved in the financing of our partner," commented MagneGas CFO, Scott Mahoney. "We fully appreciate the process, timing and magnitude of the financial support our client has orchestrated. Once we fully understood the requirements of these financing parties and our client, we were able to adjust our prior purchase contracts in order to facilitate this initial sale. With this ground work in place, we are quite optimistic that the follow on option agreement for an additional five units will be executed and a 50% nonrefundable deposit will be exercised in Q1 2018. We see this relationship as quickly becoming a meaningful source of revenues and cash flow for many years to come."
