In a period where the need to achieve energy savings has never been so strong, ENERGISME announces the establishment of two lines of financing to support its business development

  • A maximum of 10 million euros in the form of Convertible Bonds with Warrants (CBW), of which 3 million euros have been drawn today
  • A maximum of 2 million euros in the form of bonds with warrants, of which 0.84 million euros have been drawn today


Energisme (FR0013399359 - ALNRG), a company that has developed a SaaS software solution, N'Gage, aimed at accelerating the energy performance of companies thanks to data intelligence, as well as a PaaS platform, Loamics, dedicated to the real-time processing of massive and heterogeneous data, announced today that it has set up two lines of financing to support its commercial development:

 

  • 10 million under the terms of an agreement concluded with Atlas Special Opportunities1 (the "Investor"). This financing will be carried out through the issuance of convertible bonds to which are attached warrants, the financial instruments, taken in their entirety, will hereinafter be referred to as the "CBW"; of which a drawdown of 3 million euros has been completed today
  • A second line for a maximum aggregate amount of 2 million under the terms of an agreement with several specialized investors in the form of bonds with warrants attached ("BWs"), of which 840,000 euros has been drawn down today


The net proceeds of these financing lines replace the previous financing line put in place with the IRIS fund (see press release of January 20, 2022), which is being terminated, and of which only 1.82 million euros were converted out of the 10 million available.

By choosing to finance itself through the two BW and CBW products, Energisme has an adapted and flexible financing system to support and accelerate the steady growth of its turnover. The proceeds of these financings will enable Energisme to:

 

  • Reinforce and expand its network of commercial partners to meet the demand for energy savings following large increases in electricity and gas prices in the last few months;
  • Expand rapidly the customer base with the objective to double the number of customers to over 300 over the next 18 months;
  • Pursue the development of Loamics during the second half of 2022.


Stéphane Bollon, CEO of Energisme said: " The selected solutions secure - in a particularly volatile stock market environment - the financing of our commercial development during the second half of this year. We are fully committed to the execution of our strategic plan AMBITION 20-24 and are accelerating the commercialization of our two solutions N'Gage, energy performance software and Loamics, data processing middleware.”

Mustapha Raddi, Co-Founder of Atlas Special Opportunities (ASO) said “ Energy management in current time is crucial with commodities prices at all-time high , we believe Energisme has the potential to help companies and states around the world to save millions of dollars with their innovative solutions , ASO capital will fuel the company’s growth ambitions.”
