RE Royalties Announces Early Repayment of Loan by Nomad Transportable Power Systems, New Loan with Revolve Renewable Power, and Appointment of Market Maker

All amounts in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated


March 27, 2024, Vancouver, BC – RE Royalties Ltd. (TSX.V: RE) (OTCQX: RROYF) (“RE Royalties” or the “Company”), a global leader in renewable energy royalty-based financing, is pleased to announce the early repayment of the five-year USD $5.6 million senior secured working capital loan (the “NOMAD Loan”) extended to Nomad Transportable Power Systems Inc. (“NOMAD”) on April 1, 2022.


Under the terms of the agreement, NOMAD, a pioneer in the mobile energy storage sector, utilized the loan to manufacture mobile energy storage systems (“Units”), including the NOMAD Traveler (2 MWh) and NOMAD Voyager (1.2 MWh). The NOMAD Loan has been repaid in full, including any outstanding interest. RE Royalties will continue to receive a gross revenue royalty of 3.5% on the sale of an additional 42MWh of NOMAD's Units. This translates to ongoing revenue for RE Royalties, providing a recurring income stream as NOMAD's battery systems continue to make an impact in the market.


The Company has also entered into a new $415,000 secured loan (the “Revolve Loan”) with existing client Revolve Renewable Power Corp. (TSXV: REVV) (“Revolve”), to enable their continued expansion into the Mexican distributed generation market. The Revolve Loan will be used to fund construction of a new 450kW rooftop solar project (the “Project”), which will be installed on the site of a food manufacturing business (the “Customer”) in Central Mexico. The Project will receive revenue from a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) between Revolve and the Customer.


The Revolve Loan will have a term of two years and will be secured against the assets of the Project, bear interest at 12% per annum, payable quarterly, and Revolve will pay a 1% closing fee on the total Loan value. A gross revenue royalty of 5% will apply to all revenues received by Revolve from the Project for the 15-year term of the PPA.


This loan represents RE Royalties’ fourth transaction with Revolve, with the Company previously providing Revolve with a $1.6 Million loan to support its acquisition of an operational rooftop solar portfolio in Mexico, a $1.9 Million loan to support the procurement of battery energy storage systems for three energy storage projects in Mexico, and a $4.0 Million loan to support the acquisition of an interest in two operational run-of-river hydro projects and an operational wind project in Western Canada.


Bernard Tan, CEO of RE Royalties, commented: “The early repayment of the NOMAD Loan and redeployment into the Revolve Loan highlights the strength of RE Royalties' financing model. The ability to recycle capital, while creating new royalty streams, offers investors an accretive way to grow the Company’s revenues without having to raise additional capital. RE Royalties is proud to have played a pivotal role in supporting NOMAD's growth and is excited to continue supporting Revolve’s expansion.”


The Company is pleased to announce that it has engaged Velocity Trade Capital Ltd. (“Velocity Trade”) to provide market-making services to the Company in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and applicable laws. Velocity Trade will manage trading of the Company’s shares from time to time for the purposed of maintaining an orderly market, with a view to reducing trading volatility and improving the liquidity of the Company’s shares.
