(“EVSX”), to move forward with its plan to recycle batteries and produce nickel ingots in Baie-Comeau, Québec, in 2022.

The Company will pay a total of $400,000 ($100,001 was paid at closing in May 2022, with the balance of $300,000 to be paid within 730 days) and will have to start construction of the installations which will host Phase II of the industrial battery operations deployment within 24 months. The facility is in a zone allowing the Company to qualify for a complete suite of governmental advantages and incentives.
EVSX also made a formal offer to buy a building to host its Phase I deployment. EVSX closed the acquisition with $258,694 in July 2022 and started generating revenues in July 2022 from the commercial rent in the building.
In July 2022, EVSX commissioned and disbursed the initial payment for manufacturing three identical battery processing industrial units. These units will be in three separate locations; one is to be in BaieComeau, QC, and the remaining two locations are in discussions.
