Vancouver, British Columbia — (Newsfile Corp. – August 30, 2023) — ReGen III Corp. (TSXV: GIII) (OTCQB: ISRJF) (FSE: PN4) (“ReGen III” or the “Company”), a leading clean technology company commercializing the ReGen™ patented process to recycle used motor oil (“UMO”) into high-value Group III base oils, is pleased to provide the following corporate update.


Since the end of Q1 2023 and in addition to the Company’s own outreach, ReGen III has been approached by a broad spectrum of super-majors, majors, and globally recognized lubricant blenders interested in advancing commercial base oils and ancillary by-products offtake arrangements and/or potential strategic equity investments at the project level.

ReGen III has entered into non-disclosure agreements (“NDAs”) with these parties. Physical samples of ReGen III’s Group III base oils have been sent to a number of these entities for their in-house laboratory testing. The Company has received, and will continue to receive, test results and further feedback from these and other parties throughout the remainder of Q3 and into early Q4 2023. While the Company believes these discussions should lead to a material outcome, the completion of an offtake agreement or strategic equity investment will be subject to satisfactory sample testing, due diligence review and the negotiation/execution of a definitive agreement. There can be no assurance that a transaction will be completed.

“In recent months, we have made significant progress,” said Greg Clarkes, Chairman & CEO of ReGen III. “Completion of these negotiations will dramatically accelerate our corporate strategy. The ReGen™ process yields 53% Group III base oil, placing the Company as one of the industry leaders in terms of yield and quality, creating a distinct competitive advantage over other traditional refiners and re-refiners.”


ReGen III previously issued financing-related press releases on February 24, March 13, June 29 and July 18, 2023, whereby the Company announced the engagements of both National Bank Financial (“NBF”) and Raymond James & Associates, Inc. (“RJF”) to pursue project-level equity and debt financing for the Texas City facility and to identify brownfield acquisition targets. These parallel processes are ongoing with financial institutions and potential strategic investors entering into NDAs while being provided access to the Company’s virtual data room.

In August, ReGen III received initial draft submission comments from the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) for the Company’s application to the Loan Programs Office (“LPO”). With funding available through the Inflation Reduction Act (“IRA”) of 2022, the LPO can finance projects in the United States that support clean energy deployment and energy infrastructure reinvestment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. ReGen III is currently working through these comments with RJF’s Public Finance/Debt Investment Banking team in advance of submitting the Company’s formal application.

In addition to the LPO, ReGen III is exploring other incentives available to clean technology projects.


The Company also announces that ReGen III’s 2014 patent application to the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property for the method and apparatus for recovering synthetic oils from composite oil streams was recently allowed. The certificate for the patent will be issued in due course.

This is the fifteenth (15th) patent issued or allowed for the Company’s ReGen™ process with another seventeen (17) patents pending globally, further solidifying the Company’s position not only as an industry leader but also highlighting its propriety innovation focus on furthering its ReGen™ technology to recycle UMO into high-value Group III base oils.


The Company is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the irlabs Investor Roadshow, starting with a virtual presentation on September 13, 2023, followed by a three-city in-person roadshow spanning Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. Click here to register.


The Company has issued 6,810,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.75 per option to directors, officers and staff. The options are valid for a period of five years from the grant date.
