Graphene

HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (CSE: HG.CN) (" HydroGraph " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement ‎(the " Private Placement ") of units of the Company (the " Units "), pursuant to which the Company issued 35,151,666 Units at a price of $0.12 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,218,199.96.

HydroGraph will use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to increase commercial scale ‎production, continue to invest in business development teams, and develop and advance ‎application partnerships.‎ In particular, the proceeds will provide capital to complete the build out of the Company's modular commercial production cell for fractal graphene, the flagship product, that will produce 1 gram per second. Expected to be complete by 4Q 2022, the difference in output will be orders of magnitude higher than current production. The funding will also initiate the development of the reactive graphene commercial production unit with a 200 kg per day capacity—compared to previously 2-4 kg per day—to be complete in 2023.

"We're very pleased with the overwhelming demand for this financing which will allow us to invest in growing our commercialization team with talent from targeted industries and accelerating sales," said Stuart Jara, Chief Executive Officer of HydroGraph. "The Board and I are appreciative of the support from existing shareholders and our management team, who have all participated in this successful fundraising round."

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a " Common Share ") and one half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a " Warrant "). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (each a " Warrant Share ") at a price of $0.20 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months after the closing date of the Private Placement (the " Closing Date ").

After the statutory hold period of four months and a day from the closing date, each Warrant will be subject to an acceleration right (the " Warrant Acceleration Right ") exercisable by the Company, if on any ten consecutive trading days the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange is $0.30 or greater per Common Share. If the Company exercises its Warrant Acceleration Right, the new expiry date of the Warrants will be the 30 th day following the notice of such exercise.

Insiders of the Company subscribed for a total of 5,818,500 Units. The ‎participation of insiders in the Private Placement constitutes a "related party transaction", within the ‎meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security ‎Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company has relied on the exemptions from ‎the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in ‎sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of the related party participation in the ‎ Private Placement as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter ‎of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the ‎related party, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization (as determined under MI ‎‎61-101).‎

Haywood Securities Inc. and PowerOne Capital Markets Limited (the " Finders ") acted as finders in connection ‎with the Private Placement.‎ The Company paid a finder's fee equal to equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised by each Finder, and issued ‎finder's warrants (the " Broker ‎Warrants ") equal to 7% of the aggregate number of Units issued to the subscribers ‎sourced by each Finder. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Broker Unit at a ‎price of $0.12 for a period of two years from the Closing Date, subject to acceleration in ‎accordance with the Warrant Acceleration Right. Each Broker Unit is identical to the Units issued ‎under the Private Placement. ‎

‎All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four ‎‎months and one day from September 14, 2022.

Investing in Graphene Companies (Updated 2022)

Graphene is often heralded as the “wonder material” of the 21st century. Investing in graphene companies offers investors exposure to a growing number of graphene applications across a diverse set of industries.

Grand View Research is forecasting that the global graphene market size will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 43.2 percent between 2021 and 2028 to reach US$1.68 billion by 2028. The firm says that revenue for electronics industry applications will be a major contributor to the growth in demand for graphene.

For its part, IDTechEx Research expects industries such as energy storage and composites to make up most of the graphene market, comprising 25 percent and 40 percent of the sector by 2027, respectively.

What is Graphene?

What is Graphene?

Widely regarded as the “wonder material” of the 21st century, graphene’s beginnings are modest. The 2D material was first produced in 2004, when two professors at the University of Manchester in England used Scotch tape to peel flakes of graphene off a chunk of graphite.

The resulting material was a crystalline allotrope of carbon, a characteristic graphene shares with diamonds and graphite. All three are made up of carbon atoms bonded in different ways. For instance, graphite consists of carbon atoms bonded in sheets of a hexagonal lattice, while graphene is made up of a single sheet of graphite.

Of course, simply knowing about the product’s composition doesn’t explain why so many people are excited about graphene. To give investors a better idea of the promise graphene holds — in terms of both applications and profit potential — we’ve assembled a brief overview of the basics, including production, uses and its future. Together, they are a start to answering the question, “What is graphene?”
