ClearVue's ATM Facility with Alpha Investment Partners

On October 23, 2023, ClearVue Technologies Limited announced a five-year ATM facility agreement with Alpha Investment Partners, a strategic move has garnered much attention in the financial and technology sectors. The ATM facility is set to provide ClearVue with up to $30 million of standby equity capital over the next five years. This significant financial boost is expected to play a pivotal role in ClearVue’s market entry and expansion plans.

One of the standout features of this facility is that it provides ClearVue with greater flexibility for conducting capital-raising activities over time. The company retains complete control over the key aspects of the placement process, including whether to use the ATM, the number of issued shares, and the minimum issue price for any placement. The final issue price is calculated as the greater of a floor price set by ClearVue and a Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) over a specified period minus a discount of up to seven per cent.

Advantages of ClearVue's ATM facility

The ATM Facility offers several key advantages for ClearVue Technologies:

Timing control: One of the primary benefits of the ATM Facility is the control it affords ClearVue over the timing of capital issuances. This control is essential for optimising the net proceeds with minimal dilution.

No complex mechanisms: Unlike structured financing solutions, the ATM Facility doesn’t involve complicated or expensive mechanisms. It simplifies the process of capital raising.

No restrictions: ClearVue is not restricted from raising capital through other methods simultaneously. This ensures maximum flexibility in their financial strategy.

Collateral and buyback option: ClearVue has agreed to place 10 million shares from its LR7.1 capacity to Alpha Investment Partners as collateral for the ATM facility. Importantly, ClearVue can buy back these shares without incurring termination costs, subject to shareholder approval.

ClearVue's CEO Martin Deil's perspective

Martin Deil, CEO of ClearVue, highlighted the significance of this ATM Facility in the company’s growth strategy. He emphasised that ClearVue’s technology had been validated by third-party verification, affirming the real-world performance benefits of their products. Access to flexible capital is critical to accelerating their growth plans and commercialisation efforts. The ATM Facility empowers them to raise investment at prevailing market prices and adapt to market dynamics effectively.

Deil also noted that while ATM facilities have been widely used in the US, they are relatively new in Australia. The ClearVue team reviewed multiple fundraising options before choosing this ATM, and they view it as a prudent step to efficiently and cost-effectively meet investor demand as they scale their execution in multiple global markets.
