Electra, Texas, July 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American International Holdings, Corp. (OTCQB: AMIH) announced today that it has entered into an Equity Financing Agreement with Pacific Lion LLC (Pacific Lion) pursuant to which Pacific Lion agreed to purchase up to $20,000,000 of AMIH common stock. Pacific Lion also agreed to fund AMIH up to $400,000 under a Convertible Promissory Note to bridge AMIH through to the effectiveness of the registration of the shares to be sold under the Equity Financing Agreement.

Pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement, Pacific Lion has agreed to purchase up to $20,000,000 of AMIH common stock following the receipt of put notices from AMIH and subject to certain conditions. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement entered into in connection with the Equity Financing Agreement, AMIH agreed to file a registration statement to register the common stock issuable under the Equity Financing Agreement. Following the effectiveness of the registration statement, if AMIH elects to cause Pacific Lion to purchase shares, the shares will be purchased at a 15% discount to the lowest closing trade price of AMIH’s common stock in the prior 10 trading days. The Equity Financing Agreement with Pacific Lion replaces the Equity Financing Agreement previously entered into with GHS Investments LLC, which has been terminated.

Pursuant to the Convertible Promissory Note issued to Pacific Lion by AMIH, Pacific Lion has the right to fund up to $400,000. The note bears interest at 6% and is due on May 23, 2024. Following an uplisting to a senior stock exchange, the note will automatically convert at 80% of the uplisting offering price. In addition to the note, the Company also issued a Warrant to Purchase Shares of Common Stock to Pacific Lion. The warrant is exercisable for 500,000 shares for a period of five years at $0.10 per share. In the event that an uplisting to a senior stock exchange does not occur within nine months of the issuance date, the warrant will automatically be canceled. The note is designed to provide a mechanism for Pacific Lion to make regular fundings to cover AMIH’s working capital needs during the pendency of the registration statement. Pacific Lion funded the first tranche of $100,000 upon the issuance of the note.

The proceeds will be used for general business operations. More information regarding the transaction will be provided in a Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC.

These investments are part of a broader restructuring plan to recapitalize the company, consolidate and retire existing debt and reduce dilution. This restructuring is designed to drive shareholder value and strengthen the balance sheet of the company.

“AMIH is executing on its core energy production operations, and we are ready to drive forward to scaling our revenues through expanded oil and gas production and property acquisitions as well as implementing the companies state of the art energy technologies.,” said Michael McLaren, CEO of AMIH. “The capitalization of the company is critical, along with a comprehensive restructuring of debt and share classes, as well as reducing dilution in an effort to drive value for shareholders and prepare the company for uplisting to a major exchange.”

In addition to the investment made by Pacific Lion in AMIH, the company will also be working with Pacific Lion, a firm that specializes in delivering strategic direct investments and hands-on advisory services to help with the growth of early-stage companies. The firm focuses on strategies that help capitalize public companies via retail and institutional investors, along with crowdfunding, equity lines and M+A consulting, with the goal of direct up listing to a major exchange over a 6–18-month targeted time frame.

“We believe that AMIH has developed an innovative approach to legacy oil & gas production combined with a keen focus on responsible energy production and social governance (ESG),” said Jacob Fernane, CEO of Pacific Lion. “We believe our access to strategic funding, share structure cleanup, technology and operations augmentation, and more, will allow AMIH to scale to the levels needed for a major exchange uplist and to rejuvenate its powerful energy-based business plan.”

Another funding strategy the company intends to employ is to file an offering under Regulation A+. Regulation A+ allows companies to raise money under two different tiers. Fully reporting SEC reporting companies such as AMIH are able to raise up to $75,000,000 on a Tier 2 offering in any 12-month period from the general public. The company hopes to attract a new shareholder base and would like to help fund the company directly.

The company will continue in its efforts to secure additional funding and reduce debt in preparation for its attempts to uplist to a major exchange in the future.

About Cycle Energy Corp.

Cycle Energy Corp. is an energy company based in the state of Texas and currently operates three vertically integrated businesses.

  • Cycle Oil and Gas. This wholly owned Texas subsidiary focuses on acquiring and optimizing underdeveloped oil and gas assets. It employs both internally developed and third party-licensed technologies to increase production, optimize performance and reduce costs. Cycle Oil and Gas currently produces approximately 25 barrels of oil per day from 16 leases on approximately 2,000 acers. The company currently has 125 wells on lease to reactivate. Since acquiring the leases in July 2022, Cycle Oil and Gas has increased production from an average of 7 barrels/day to 25 barrels per day. After reviewing well control data in the area, Cycle Oil and Gas believes that there is more recoverable oil available on these leases.
  • Cycle Energy Services. This wholly owned Texas subsidiary supports Cycle Energy’s overall exploration and production efforts with “well services” and “end of life reclamation.” Cycle Energy Services owns and operates a combination of customized service-wireline rigs and HydroVac units. This cutting-edge equipment allows for faster “rig in” and “rig out” times. Overall, Cycle Energy Services’ equipment and experience combination seeks to reduce the amount of time and fuel burned to complete an abandonment or workover thus reducing costs.
  • Cycle Energy Technologies. This wholly owned Texas subsidiary provides both R&D and existing technology to enable increased production in the field. Cycle Energy’s flagship intellectual property is its mobile Gas to Liquid system. This is used to convert natural gas and other gaseous hydrocarbons into longer-chain hydrocarbons, such as gasoline or diesel fuel.

Each of Cycle Energy’s three vertically integrated businesses operate in tandem to help Cycle Energy capture unique opportunities that often go untapped by the Company's competitors.
