KRYSTAL BOND INC – 90% Sale Of Entac Inc., Negotiations with Cement Companies ContinueStory Filed: Wednesday, December 19, 2001 1:11 PM EST Vancouver, BC, Dec 19, 2001 (Market News Publishing via COMTEX) — Krystal Bond Inc. announced that it has entered into an arms length Memorandum of Understanding with 1502046 Ontario Inc. to re-capitalize and acquire 90% of its wholly owned subsidiary Entac Inc. The transaction is expected to close by December 31, 2001. 1502046 Ontario Inc. is acquiring the $1 million Krystal Bond debenture issued in July 2000 when it purchased Entac and which is secured by 822 class A shares of Entac (76% of it outstanding capital). The principal amount and all interest accrued under that debenture will be cancelled in exchange for the Class A shares of Entac. In addition Krystal Bond will transfer 143 Class B shares of Entac to 1502046 Ontario Inc. for nominal consideration to hold 10% of its outstanding capital. 1502046 Ontario Inc. will also cause Entac to pay Krystal Bond $150,000 ($75,000 on closing and $75,000 in March 2002) on account of prior Krystal Bond advances to Entac. Entac currently owns a license right to manufacture and sell its Enviroseal products in Canada. Coincident with this restructuring, it is entering into a new license agreement for all of North America (USA, Mexico and Canada) and is committing US$5.4 million to acquire the North American License and build 4 new production plants. Krystal Bond previously announced that its ability to carry on operations was conditional on raising additional capital and to date it has been unsuccessful. Its efforts were impacted by the large amount of capital required to fund an Entac North American License, the unresolved terms related to a $1 million advance made by Blue Circle Industries PLC, recently acquired by the Lafarge Group, and the impact of the events of September 11th on capital markets. Jim Griffiths, President of Krystal Bond said, “Completing the Entac transaction will eliminate $1 million of debt and provide the company with $150,000 to settle some of its existing liabilities, while giving it a 10% interest in a larger North American operation.” ” Given our financial condition, that is an excellent result,” he added. Griffiths also said, “negotiations with Lafarge on its debt/licensing arrangements had been delayed because of Lafarge’s first priority to focus on integrating Blue Circle Industries into its operations.” In the last 30 days Krystal Bond has recommenced its negotiations with Lafarge and in addition, has opened a dialogue with other cement companies. The ongoing viability of Krystal Bond as a going concern and its and its ability to raise capital will depend on the outcome of those negotiations.
