Closing of Private Placement first tranche

 

“We are thrilled to announce the participation of several new strategic investors, smart Canadian agriculture leaders, and Manitoba-based precision agriculture farmers,” stated Ian Clifford, Co-Founder and CEO.

 

“Tech-savvy and environmentally conscious, these farmers understand how FuelPositive on-farm precision agriculture solutions can not only help them address environmental imperatives like climate change, but it can also help them meet Canada’s GHG emissions targets. Most importantly, it protects them from fertilizer and fuel cost and supply uncertainties. Farmers love how FuelPositive technology offers them stability and predictability allowing for a more sustainable business model,” Ian Clifford continues.

 

“We are thrilled that farmers are excited about our technology and the control it gives them. Specifically, Manitoba farmers took time out of their busy schedules to participate in this private placement. Thanks to these new farmer shareholders, today we conclude the first tranche of our active Private Placement.”

 

“It’s significant that farmers directly support FuelPositive agricultural technologies as it underscores the potential value for Manitoba farmers and farmers globally,” concluded Ian Clifford.

 

Manitoba on-farm installation

 

“While we were pleased to meet our April 15 target date for the shipping of our system, we deliberately chose to hold back the last containers in Waterloo until we receive the go-ahead from the Hieberts regarding final site readiness. It’s been a challenging spring for farmers in Manitoba due to significant precipitation, and we had to press pause to allow for the necessary heavy equipment access to the site,” continued Ian Clifford.

 

May and early June are also incredibly active periods for seeding and planting for farmers in Manitoba. FuelPositive is respectful of the Hieberts’ busy spring and unforeseen weather-related site prep challenges and decided to keep the balance of the system in Waterloo until the Hieberts go ahead. Once received, the balance of the system will be installed on-site in Manitoba following two days to account for loading and shipping times.

 

The positive aspect of having the balance of the system at FuelPositive facilities in Waterloo has allowed the team to advance readiness, which will translate into accelerated on-site commissioning.

 

The Company monitors progress daily and awaits confirmation from the Hieberts that the on-farm site is ready to receive the complete system, including the new 90-ton anhydrous storage tank.

 

New Director of Sales: Michael Heslin

 

FuelPositive is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Heslin as its new Sales Director. With a profound understanding of farmers’ realities and needs and exceptional empathetic and listening skills, Heslin is a seasoned professional known for his people-centric approach. On behalf of FuelPositive, Heslin ensures that farmers’ concerns are heard and effectively addressed.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Michael to our team,” stated Luna Clifford, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer. “His perceptiveness and unwavering commitment to understanding farmers’ needs make him the perfect fit to drive our customer-centric initiatives forward.”

 

“As the first Director of Sales at FuelPositive, I am thrilled to be part of a company that combines my passion for the environment with cutting-edge technology. Joining this team has been an exciting journey, and I am eager to contribute to our mission of creating sustainable solutions for the future,” stated Michael Heslin.

 

“I am excited about the innovative solutions FuelPositive offers and look forward to leading and growing our sales team. There is increasing awareness and interest across Manitoba about FuelPositive technology. Many farmers eagerly await system commissioning and the opportunity to visit the Hieberts’ farm to firm up their purchase commitments. The Company understands the importance of direct farmer-to-farmer conversations alongside Company information in the sales process, every farmer we engage with is keen on acquiring a system that will create economic certainty,” concluded Heslin.

In his new role, Heslin spearheads efforts to ensure that FuelPositive remains agile and responsive to farmers’ evolving needs. One of his immediate initiatives includes organizing town hall meetings across Manitoba, where farmers can engage with the FuelPositive team face-to-face and visit the first on-farm FP300.

 

These sessions will provide an invaluable platform for farmers to share their insights and experiences while learning about FuelPositive’s innovative precision agriculture solutions and resilience tools for rural, remote and northern communities.

 

These information sessions will not only welcome Manitoba farmers but also extend an invitation to other community members interested in understanding FuelPositive’s possible contributions to sustainable agriculture. “We are committed to fostering meaningful relationships with farmers and communities,” stated Luna Clifford. “With Michael at the helm of our sales team, we are confident in our ability to deliver tailored solutions that empower farmers and drive positive change.”

 

Government Relations

 

“We have made significant progress in Government and Stakeholder Relations activities at both federal and provincial levels to build state-of-the-art mass production manufacturing facilities in Manitoba to support farmers and job creation in the province, and beyond. Shareholders can expect updates as details emerge from these ongoing discussions and negotiations,” concluded Luna Clifford.
