Allied Resource Corporation Completes $53.0 Million Equity Financing with PCG Capital Partners, LLC
Allied Resource Corporation, a global climate technology group operating and servicing energy related businesses, today announced the closing of a $53 million preferred growth equity financing with PCG Capital Partners, a private equity firm in La Jolla, CA. Riverside Management Group acted as the lead advisor to Allied on the transaction.
Proceeds from the transaction will be used to accelerate Allied's climate technology activities in waste lube oil recycling and coal gasification with CO2 sequestration.
"PCG is an exceptional institutional partner and the capital enables Allied to accelerate its business plan while positioning it for an IPO," commented Heinz Schimmelbusch, founder and non-executive Chairman of the Board of Allied Resource Corporation. "The PCG Capital Partners transaction is a great step forward for Allied."
PCG Capital Partners Managing Directors and Allied Board Members Tim Kelleher and John Coughlin said: "We are excited to partner with such a proven and experienced management team in a very attractive sector. We believe that there are very strong long-term demand drivers for Allied's climate technologies and we look forward to a productive partnership."
Allied recently entered into an agreement (The South Heart Project) with Great Northern Power Development LP (GNPD) for a major coal gasification project through its wholly owned subsidiary, Allied Syngas Corp. The South Heart Project will use coal in a chemical process to create synthetic natural gas while also capturing CO2 for use in enhanced oil recovery. Additionally, the company is in the process of building its second waste lube oil recycling refinery in Germany and is expanding its production of DeNOx catalysts in China.
