Kontrol Energy enters into Letter of Intent to Acquire Log-One Ltd.’s Energy Management System (EMS)
TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2016
TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2016 /CNW/ – Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR) (the “Company“) announces that it has entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire (the “Proposed Acquisition“) the assets of Log-One Ltd.’s Energy Management System (“EMS”), an intelligent, occupancy-based heating and air-conditioning control product, including the hardware, software, intellectual property and patents (combined to be referred to as the “EMS Technology“). The Proposed Acquisition is conditional on the completion of a definitive asset purchase agreement and would involve the payment by the Company of $250,000 in cash, the issuance of 1 million common shares of the Company and the payment of a royalty on future product sales to Log-One Ltd.
The EMS Technology is an integrated smart, occupancy-based thermostat system which has been designed for commercial and industrial use. Unlike a programmable thermostat which requires a high level of attention by the property owner and is subject to ongoing manual adjustments, the EMS Technology provides for pre-programmed automation, smart learning algorithms and more environmental control while delivering best-in-class energy savings.
The EMS Technology is a leader in its field, with more than 10,000 units installed and operating across Canada. It is specifically designed for both retrofit of existing buildings and new building applications, and uses unique patented technology to control pre-heat cycles, room temperatures, ventilation and lighting based on actual occupant behavior. The EMS Technology has been delivering independently verified, market-leading energy savings for customers for the past ten years, producing between 24% and 33% savings in multi-residential buildings and between 30% and 40% in classrooms and offices.
“We are very confident with the ability of the EMS Technology to deliver significant energy savings,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of the Company. “Our plans are to add Internet of Things (IoT) capability to the EMS Technology and to deliver a series of robust mobile applications. By making the energy savings produced by the EMS Technology visible and interactive we see the potential opportunity of accelerating the deployment of the EMS Technology across North America.”
Kontrol Energy seeks to finance the Proposed Acquisition through its recently announced Debenture and Common Share Unit Offering. The closing date of the Proposed Acquisition is anticipated to occur in mid-December, 2016.
