Re: SEC funding for biomass-fueled energy production?




Rick:

      I assume that what is meant here by "SEC-registered securities" is
a public offering.  From the context, however,it doesn't sound like the
firm in question is yet ready to "go public" with an
offering--especially in today's tough market for IPOs.  That said, there
are various ways to attract equity funding.  Since this is
energy-related, the company might check with the folks at CleanTech
Venture Network, LLC (www.CleanTechVenture.com).  Ask for Nicholas
Parker or Keith Raab (416-763-7184).

Hi, all -

This one's a little off the beaten path.  Here's a request for
information
I received, and am having some trouble finding an answer.  It's outta my
realm of expertise.  Does your collective wisdom and experience of  have
an
answer?

"The project I am working on is an electric generation plant that is in
operation.  For over a decade it used coal as its only fuel.  That
became
unprofitable.  Now, the plant uses waste wood, tires, and coal.  Now the
plant is profitable.

The desire of the owners is to enter the market of SEC registered
securities, primarily for debt but also for some equity.

My question is, do you know of any firm that has used SEC registered
securities to fund a biomass electricity generation plant?

I am beginning to suspect that the answer is "zero", but that usually is
an
incorrect answer.

If you can provide any hints on a firm that might fit this bill,  that
would be helpful. "

Thanks  in advance -

ry
