convertible debentures and the exercise of warrants, and $8.1 million increase in property,
plant and equipment related to the construction activities at Aldersyde facility.
• Total non-current liabilities decreased by $7.7 million as at April 30, 2021 compared to April

• The non-cash loss on fair value of warrant liability of $28.5 million in the current year,

Don Allan, CEO, commented: “Despite the delay in the filing of our Annual Documents, the
management team has been committed to improve every aspect of our performance, including
internal controls and financial reporting. We believe that our investors should have confidence as
a result of the audit procedures by KPMG which were supported by our management team. This
is the baseline from which we will measure our performance and hold ourselves accountable to
In previous news releases dated August 27, 2021 (the “Aug 27 PR”) and September 7, 2021, the
Company announced the management cease trade order (the “MCTO”) issued by the British
Columbia Securities Commission (the “BCSC”) pursuant to National Policy 12-203 –
Management Cease Trade Orders.
The MCTO was issued in connection with the delayed filing of the Annual Documents. Upon
the filing of the Annual Documents, the Company believes that it has satisfied the conditions
of the BCSC in order to have the MCTO lifted.
The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company
to trade their common shares of the Company. The CEO and the CFO pursuant to the
MCTO, and the insiders of the Company as imposed by the Company, continue to be under
a trading blackout as previously disclosed until the MCTO is lifted by the BCSC.
As disclosed in the Aug 27 PR, the previously issued financial statements for the fiscal year ended
April 30, 2020, and the corresponding management’s discussion and analysis (collectively, the
“Restated Documents”), have been restated in the comparative figures presented in the Annual
Documents. The Restated Documents replace and supersede the respective previously filed
financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended April 30, 2020.
The effect of the restatements does not impact the Company’s cash position, or the number of
shares previously reported as outstanding.
Cielo Waste Solutions finished the quarter ending april 30th with a cash balance of 17 MCAD.
The company could receive upwards of 2.5 millon CAD in outstanding warrants , the average exercise price is 0.10 CAD.
For the financial year of april 2020 to april 2021 not counting in the loss of fair value for warrants the burn rate for Cielo was approximately 11.2 million CAD per year , or 2.8 million CAD per quarter. Since close to 6 months have passed since april we can now assume the cash balance is down to 11,4 million CAD which should be sufficient to keep the company going for another year ( or 4 quarters) assuming the costs don’t go up exponentially.
We own shares of these companies personally.
