VANCOUVER, BC and BURLINGAME, Calif. – January 13, 2022 –
Vicinity Motor Corp.

Under a new, multi-year supply agreement, Proterra battery systems will power the Vicinity Lightning 28-foot electric transit bus and Vicinity’s strip chassis platform to support several commercial vehicle configurations such as utility trucks, shuttle buses, and box trucks. The agreement is also expected to support Vicinity’s next-generation heavy-duty electric transit bus as well as the VMC 1200 Class 3 work truck and VMC 1500 Class 5 work truck with Proterra battery systems.

Designed for the U.S. and Canadian markets, the Vicinity Lightning will comply with Buy America requirements for Federal Transit Administration-funded programs in the United States.

“Cities and towns across North America are driving towards a future with clean air and a healthier environment for our kids and future generations. The question now is no longer if communities will transition to zero-emission, battery-electric transportation, but how fast we can get there. Together with Vicinity, we are excited to build on this innovative spirit as we bring more clean transportation solutions to the communities we live in and serve,” said Gareth Joyce, CEO of Proterra.

Designed and manufactured in the United States, Proterra battery packs leverage industry-leading energy density and a customizable design to fit within a variety of vehicles. Proterra’s best-in-class battery systems have been proven through more than 20 million service miles driven by Proterra transit vehicles across North America and selected by world-class commercial vehicle manufacturers to power school buses, work trucks, construction equipment, and more.

This order is the first sign of the progress from the relatively new cooperation with Optimal EV. The entire order is for electric vehicles and considering the praise that this client is giving VMC we are expecting many more orders for the same vehicle type this year. Vicinity Motor corp is projecting 140 million in sales for 2022 and with this order announced they are well on their way
! The company is trading at just 1 X sales for 2022 and considering the target price that foresee an upside of 300-700 % Vicinity Motor should have a great year ahead!

Exclusive PRE IPO opportunity for ESGFIRE subscribers in Carbon capture

Company name: Captico2
Sector: Carbon capture and storage
Website:
https://captico2.com/
About:
Carbon capture storage unique in their ability to mineralize and turn Co2 into a commercial product
IPO time table:
8-12 months on Euronext merkur Norway or SPAC at Nasdaq US

ESGFIRE has decided to invest 10 % of our portfolio into the PRE IPO of Captico2
. We have been looking for a carbon capture storage company to invest in for over 2 years but have , until now, not found something worth our interest. The current financing round is 10 million EUR and the proceeds are intended to fund the company’s technology going from the current technology readiness level (TRL) 6 to stage 7. After this is done (expected completion mid 2022), the company has an agreement of an order for 10 units worth 160 MEUR with a pre payment of 35 % from their partner ENEA. Carbon Capture is currently the hottest segment in ESG investing which is why we are so excited about this opportunity to get in early.

The current pre-money valuation of Captico2 is 50 million EUR. The forecast Valuation is 200 mEUR by 2H-2022, 400 mEUR by 2H-2023 and 1,000 mEUR by 2H2024 .

Here are some publicly listed market comparables in the carbon capture storage but none of these are able to capture,store and mineralize CO2 into a commercial product like Captico2:

Co2Capsol – Market cap 128 MEUR
Bergen Carbon Solutions – Market cap 182 MEUR
Aker Carbon Capture – 1600 MEUR

The current financing round also has VERY favorable terms negotiated which state that any investor participating in this round ( 10 million EUR) will be compensated in the unlikely event should there be any raise at a lower evaluation moving forward . The company plans to raise an additional 20 MEUR this spring at a higher evaluation
.
Captico2 currently has discussions with some very big private equity companies and also some large insurance companies, these might fill the entire current financing round so time is of the essence in this investment case.The normal ticket size is 100 000 EURbut for ESGFIRE subscribers the minimum is set at 20 000 EUR .

ESGFIRE has invested 10 % of its entire portfolio into this company, and that means a lot since I usually only invest 2,5 % of our total portfolio in any given company. We think (this is not financial advice) this investment could return anywhere from 300-1000 % until their planned IPO depending on which IPO path they take.

The different exit options are: Listing on the Euronext, Commercial buyout or SPAC IPO at Nasdaq in the United States.

To receive the full investor presentation and subscription agreement email us at : info@esgfireat40.com

If you wish to meet with management let us know and we can set up a meeting for you.

Please note this is a PRE IPO and therefore it carries a higher risk as the shares are NOT currently traded on any trading platforms.

Vicinity Motors Corp gets 15-32 CAD price targets from Catalyst Equity and Spartan Capital! Indicating 366-782 % long term upside!

Company: Vicinity Motor Corp(formerly Grande West Transportation )
Listings :TSXV , NASDAQ
Ticker: VMC.V & VEV
Market cap at time of publication: $181 MCAD
Stock price at time of publication: $5,19 CAD ( reverse split price 1,8 CAD)
Business: Leading supplier of electric, CNG, gas and clean-diesel buses for
both public and commercial enterprise use in the U.S and Canada
Comparable peer : Greenpower Motor , Market cap $365 MCAD
Website: https://vicinitymotorcorp.com/

Our top pick in the electric vehicles sector Vicinity Motors corp have finally received some very encouraging analyst coverage.

On november 29th Catalyst equity research issued a report that gave Vicinity Motors a $15 CAD price target and the report can be viewed HERE.

Catalyst bases their price target on the following numbers:

2021E Revenues (mm) $53.0
2022E Revenues (mm) $138.0
2023E Revenues (mm) $510.2
2024E Revenues (mm) $860.0

Catalyst research puts a big emphasis on the large cooperations that Vicinity Motors has been clever enough to sign with retailers such as ABC companies, an exclusive reseller agreement with innoative company Optimal EV, and a collaboration agreement with the JB Poindexter business unit, EAVX, which will begin to drive revenue growth in 2022.

Catalyst come to this conclusion concerning EBITDA estimates
“EBITDA is forecast to increase to $50.0 million and $102.0 million in 2023 and 2024 respectively with the EBITDA margin increasing to the 12% level in 2024. Net income is forecast to increase to $32.0 million or $0.83 per share in 2023 and advance further in 2024 to $70.0 million or $1.82 per share”

In our own assumption based on Catalyst’s net income figures ESGFIRE calculates
that by putting a 20 X multiple on Net income we could be looking at a market cap of $1400 MCAD in 2024 (up 744 % from todays level).

The second research report was issued on 2nd of December by Spartan Capital and can be viewed HERE. This report gave Vicinity Motor a price target of $25 USD or $ 32 CAD indicating a 600 % upside.


Sparta capital emphasis is on the Class 3 vehicle market for electric vehicles that Vicinity Motors have recently entered.
This qoute is from the actual report: “Its new VMC 1200 class 3 commercial cab and chassis vehicle is well suited for the commercial and municipal markets with Mitsubishi Fuso recently exiting the market. There is no other competing electric class 3 cabover vehicle on the market. Vicinity has partnered with JB Poindexter which makes a wide variety of truck bodies and has strong customer loyalty to make payload bodies for the VMC 1200”

Vicinity Motors new US factory in Washington which makes their vehicles buy america compliant is another great catalyst for Vicinity Motors according to Sparta Capital, They estimate production from this plant will begin in Q2 2022 and ramp rapidly in 2023.

Precisely like ESGFIRE has stated many times before Sparta Capital states that Vicinity Motors is trading at just 0.7 X the projected revenue (based on Sparta Capitals projections) for 2023 compared to 5,9 X for peer comparables. Sparta Capital also state that their estimates are conservative since they are below managements own guidance. Sparta Capital also thinks Vicinity Motors should be trading at a premium evaluation but is currently trading at a massive discount to comparable peers. Not only is Vicinity Motor undervalued by normal measures their products are also first in class and best value for money as can be seen in the report by Sparta Capital. Sparta Capital also highlights that Vicinity Motors should be highly favoured by the new infrastructure bill in the United states which will put 39.2 billion USD into Public transit and converting many old fossile vehicles into electric ones from suppliers that are buy america compliant just like Vicinity Motors!

Below is a picture of the peer evaluation comparables from Sparta Capital’s report:



ESGFIRE is very pleased to see that Vicinity Motors is finally getting the appreciation by analysts as is deserved. These two reports are the first but most likely not the last to come from analysts with a sharp sight for undervaled companies in the electric vehicles sector!

Newlox Gold Moves Towards Definitive
Agreement in Brazil

Company: Newlox Gold Ventures Corp
Listings : Canadian Securities Exchange, Frankfurt, US OTC
Tickers: LUX , NGO, NWLXF
Market cap at time of publication: $ 28,8 MCAD
Stock price at time of publication: $0.215 CAD
Business: Environmentally friendly and socially responsible gold mining
Market Size: US$180bn 
Website: https://newloxgold.com/

ESGFIRE comments: It’s very exciting to see that Newlox projects in Brazil are moving ahead according to plan. It looks like the company will have it’s third project commencing in Brazil in 2022. It’s also very encouraging to see that Newlox is intensifying their communications with shareholders and becoming more transparent with ongoing activities.

Press release available below in full:

Vancouver, BC, 8 December 2021 – Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. (“Newlox” or the “Company”)
(CSE: LUX | Frankfurt/Stuttgart: NGO | PINK: NWLXF) is pleased to announce that its planned
expansion into gold recovery in Brazil, comparable to its established operations in Costa Rica, has
advanced through initial due diligence and underlying legal organization.


The initiative has also been greatly enhanced by the news that the Research Center for Responsible
Mining of the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (NAP.Mineração/USP) has received
expanded World Bank funding for its ASGM – Coexistence in Brazil Project being undertaken in
partnership with the Brazilian Cooperative Organization, various artisanal mining cooperatives, the
University of British Columbia, and Newlox Gold (Portuguese news release here).
Newlox Gold, as announced on June 16, 2021, has been working in partnership with
NAP.Mineração/USP, the centre for small-scale responsible mining at the University of São Paulo,
Brazil.

This centre supports dissemination of responsible mining practices to artisanal and small-scale
mining operations through applied research, training and education. The actions of NAP.Mineracao/USP
foster responsible and integrated management of mineral exploration, mine development, mining,
rehabilitation, governance, and sustainable development within the artisanal mining sector.
The objective is to “prepare miners for the long term by establishing safer and more efficient mining
models and disseminating mercury-free gold recovery techniques, practices and principles of health and
safety, ESG, economic management and gender equality”, commented Professor Giorgio De Tomi, the
director of NAP.Mineração/USP and Newlox Gold’s head of Brazilian Operations.


The fostering of partnerships between artisanal miners and private companies is a vital part of SGMCoexistence in Brazil initiative. Newlox Gold has been presented to the Brazilian artisanal sector as an
example of a company implementing mutually beneficial business models for improving the economic,
social, and environmental impacts of artisanal mining for all stakeholders. This is illustrated by Newlox
having developed successful partnerships with local miners in Costa Rica.
Two attractive artisanal mining projects in Brazil have emerged from the Company’s due-diligence work
over the fall. One of these provides a natural beachhead for Newlox Gold to expand into this vast and
exciting market. The Company is working with its local partners with whom it has established close
relationships. Newlox Gold looks forward to starting construction on its third project, and first in Brazil,
next year.


“Over the fall, we completed our initial due diligence work and identified a project in Brazil as an
obvious starting point in the country. Recently, several legal and regulatory prerequisites have been
successfully completed, allowing the Company to move into the final stages toward signing a definitive
agreement.”
“The Brazilian mining industry is several orders of magnitude larger than our operations in Costa Rica,
representing a massive opportunity for the growth of Newlox Gold,” commented CEO Ryan Jackson

ESGFIRE PORTFOLIO UPDATE NOVEMBER 2021

Best monthly performers
Desert Control + 25%
Leading Edge Materials + 15 %

Worst monthly performers
Newlox Gold – 35%
Solarvest Bioenergy – 33 %
Aurora solar technologies – 24%

Current positions with monthly performance for November 2021

ESGFIRE comment: This should be read and kept in mind while digesting this months portfolio update.

Absolicon – +-No change. Absolicon have signed in total 17 framework agreements and totals a sales pipeline exceeding $100 MUSD.

Aduro Clean Technologies – Down 18 % . Just like many other Canadian stocks its been a rough November for Aduro despite good news. They recently announced they have reached their first milestone and completed work for their third party validation which is now awaiting confirmation by their third party auditor. Analysis is coming shortly from ESGFIRE on Aduro.

Aurora Solar Technologies
 – Down 24 %. The market chose to interpret news during October as very negative. We make a different assessment as the latest validation showed that the software (Insight) is also being evaluated by a second manufacturer. There was a slight delay in the first evaluation which is calculated to being concluded during the current quarter which means before the end of 2021. Shpuld see Aurora return to old levels at 30-40 cents if they deliver as promised during December.

Char technologies – Down 13 %. Char has a sales pipeline of about 100 MUSD and it should become to materialize into sharp deals within a not too distant future.

Desert Control – Up 25 % The company gave an update on their big project in Abu Dhabi with Mawarid. The agreement was extended to include a bigger scope which could lead to larger revenues than initially was thought and is preparing for stage two. The company is gaining more and more news as fertilizer prices are exploding upwards and the need for alternative methods are being sourced globally.

Earthrenew –+- No change. Earthrenew recently released a new presentation deck where they project 28 million CAD in revenues for 2022, its currently sitting on a market cap of 15 million CAD. The stock is currently a waiting game. Fundamentals are very sound with increasing revenues and one big seller which has put a major pressure on the stock. Once this seller is gone we expect a return to more normal trading levels at 0.30-0.40 CAD

Environmental Waste international – +- 0 % No change , This is now a waiting game to see progress with the domestic facility which we hope to hear more about soon.

Newlox Gold Ventures Corp – Down 35 %. Newlox released , what the market perceived , as a very dissapointing financial report which was caused by delays in production . What should be kept in mind is that the potential based on a full production year with their current projects alone the company could be looking at revenues of 39,8 MUSD (however cost deductions for both plants and royalties for plant 2 are not included in this.) The first processing plant is soon ramping up to full scale, and Boston will begin commercial operations in early 2022.

Lion E-mobility +-0 No change- The company impressed us with a HUGE order for 2022 that was 48 million euro in size, much larger than their current market cap. The current harsh climate for micro caps is clearly visible since the big order was not permanently reflected in a higher share price.

Vicinity Motor Corp – Down 5 %. The company recently received analyst coverage from Catalyst research and Spartan capital indicating 15-32 CAD as a price target constituting 350-750 % upside from current levels. Recently came out with a financial projection of revenues for 2022 amounting to 140 MCAD. New EV models and orders have been announced. This company should also benefit from the new biden infrastructure bill.

Solarvest BioEnergy – Down 33 % ,Solarvest is now valued at less than 7 MCAD , this is less than what we anticipate in annual sales for their latest product launch.

Biofrigas Option 1 –Down 15 % Biofrigas recently updated and stated their external customer validation should be done shortly. This should prove to be a great catalyst!

Leading Edge Materials Corp – Up 15 % – Should have some short term catalyst coming up within the next few months.

Hydrogenpro – Down 20 %. Unfortunately there was a false breakout of this stock on technical analysis which made our entry bad in timing. Conviction is high with this position as they aim to deliver hydrogen at a cost of 1,2 USD per kilo in 2022.

Ticker: $ABSL
LIST: Spotlight Sweden
MCAP: $39 MUSD (312 MSEK) at time of publication
Share price: 135 SEK = 18,45 USD at time of publication

ESGFIRE comment: Absolicon with the new framework agreement announced today 7/12 now have 17 framework agreements in place (Out of these 17 framework agreements three have been signed in the last 2 months ). The total sales pipeline for non-reccurring revenues for Absolicon now totals $93 MUSD (850 MSEK) assuming all are finalized . The total license agreement fees for these framework agreements (if all are finalized) now totals$7,5 MUSD (68 MSEK) annually. There is also additional potential reccuring revenues in supply sales from patented components that can only be purchased from Absolicon by their framework agreement partners. The potential reccurring revenues now totals approximately $75 MUSD (680 MSEK)if all agreements are finalized . .ESGFIRE hopes to see Absolicon finalize one or more framework agreements within the next couple of months. We are very impressed with the development of Absolicon and it should only be a matter of time until we see the progress be reflected in the share price. This is now one of our largest positions and we think it is currently one of the best risk reward cases in our portfolio.

ESGFIRE comment:
Aduro today (2/12 2021) released much anticipated news that they have completed their work in support of their first milestone which is a part of the third party validation for validating the commercial scalability of their HTC technology. The details of this work have been summarized in a report and submitted for third-party evaluation. The release states “These results form the foundation for HCT scaleup to pilot plants, precommercial deployments, and and full-scale commercial systems.” ESGFIRE views it as extremely bullish that CTO of Aduro , Mark Trygstad,thinks the results of thecontinuous-flow R2 pre-pilot reactor are even more promising than anticipated. Furthermore CTO Marc Trygstad stated “This significantly strengthens our projections regarding lower operating costs in commercial applications, along with improved scoring on environmental factors, such as reduced emissions and energy consumption,”.

The implications of these promising results cannot be stressed enough since these results derisks the whole investment case of Aduro and it will be easier to attract both partners and clients with a fully validated technology which has already been proven to work in continous flow. As previously stated Aduro’s technology is expected to be able to process plastics types that today are not possible to recycle such as polyethylene and polypropylene. ESGFIRE looks forward to hearing more positive news from the company !

SARNIA, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 2, 2021 / Aduro Clean Technologies Inc. (“Aduro“, or the “Company“) (CSE:ACT)(OTCQB:ACTHF)(FSE:9D50), is a Canadian developer of patented water-based technologies to chemically recycle plastics, and to transform heavy crude and renewable oils into new-era resources and higher-value fuels.

Aduro is pleased to announce that the Company’s scientists have completed their work in support of the First Milestone as set out in the Share Exchange Agreement dated October 22, 2021, and as amended in the Share Exchange Agreement. The details of this work have been summarized in a report and submitted for third-party evaluation.

The independent third-party evaluator named in the Share Exchange Agreement is Dr. Paul Charpentier, who will shortly report on his findings. His role is to:

  1. Examine the methodology used by the Aduro scientists and the results obtained in view of the objectives defined in the Share Exchange Agreement, and then
  2. Certify if those objectives were met.

The results of the completed work of the First Milestone demonstrates that the patented Aduro Hydrochemolytic™ technology (HCT), developed and proven by Aduro in small batch R1 reactors, is viable for use in the types of continuous-flow reactors commonly used in commercial applications. In this case, HCT was applied to improve the properties of bitumen, but the technology has other important applications. For the demonstration, bitumen feedstock with an “API gravity” (density) of 14.6 ºAPI was upgraded to lighter petroleum with a density of 19.1 ºAPI. (Higher ºAPI values mean lower density and higher market value.)

“Results achieved with the continuous-flow R2 pre-pilot reactor exceeded expectations. Compared to batch mode, it delivered equivalent upgrading results more quickly and at lower temperatures, and with lower catalyst loading,” says Marc Trygstad, CTO of Aduro. “We had already proven HCT in small-scale R1 batch reactors, but the efficiency of HCT in R2 increased by a factor far greater than 10. This significantly strengthens our projections regarding lower operating costs in commercial applications, along with improved scoring on environmental factors, such as reduced emissions and energy consumption,” adds Trygstad.

These results form the foundation for HCT scaleup to pilot plants, precommercial deployments, and full-scale commercial systems. They also create the context required for Aduro to further optimize its processes, and to engage potential partners and customers through demonstration projects. For example, the R2-scale work on bitumen supports the next-phase design of the pilot-scale R3 reactor system to process barrels-per-day of bitumen, which was begun in June 2021. Furthermore, lessons learned from bitumen processing are also being applied to accelerate design of an R2-scale demonstration system optimized for upcycling of plastics, like polyethylene and polypropylene.

“My thanks to the Aduro technology team for supporting this critical milestone and exceeding our expectations. Having delivered on this key commitment to our investors, the knowledge gained allows us to now advance and accelerate our efforts on the next phase, which is the pilot-scale demonstration of HCT,” says Ofer Vicus, CEO of Aduro.

ESGFIRE comment: Less than 2 months ago Solarvest announced they would be launching products in Asia and the United states through their partner OrgHive which have 23 million users online they have now announced that their products have been launched on OrgHive’s e-commerce platform for customers in Southeast Asia. Details about the partnership have been described before. Solarvest describes the launch as follows ” The OrgHive/Eversea site has also been translated to Chinese for the convenience of OrgHive’s 23 million unique organic-oriented customers.  Customers in China can now access detailed information on the world’s first organic certified DHA product along with the chemical-free, clean label messaging. The e-commerce portal has also been configured and implemented. “

The press release states further” In addition, OrgHive and Eversea have developed a messaging program to promote/educate customers, on popular Chinese social media platforms, about the advantages of organic certified algae Omega-3. Fish oil is an established category and until now there has been no alternative that provides the assurance of product(s) that avoid environmental contamination and industrial chemical processing. The messages are designed to promote organic algae as a superior source of Omega-3, the importance of Omega-3 for brain health/growth, and general education on the types of Omega-3 with emphasis on the superior nature of long-chain Omega-3 (e.g. ALA vs. DHA). “

The sales potential on the OrghHive platform is clearly massive. A previous calculation by ESGFIRE has shown that if Solarvest attracts ONLY 0.1 % of the customer base (23000 customers buying 12 bottles a year at 20 USD per bottle) this could equal 5.5 million USD in annual sales.The company has clearly been working fast in order to get this product launch going as fast as possible and it will be very exciting to follow the progress which could have immense implications for the evaluation of Solarvest which is currently sitting on a market cap of just 6.64 MCAD!
