February 10, 2020


Nanaimo, British Columbia / Atlas Engineered Products (“AEP” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AEP; OTC Markets: APEUF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering for gross proceeds of $4,597,253.60 (“the Offering”). The Offering was previously announced on December 16, 2019 for proposed gross proceeds of up to $4,250,000.

The Company issued a total of 11,493,134 units (each a “Unit”) under the Offering at a price of $0.40 per Unit. Each Unit under the Offering consists of one AEP common share (a “Common Share”) and one non-transferrable Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.60 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance.

Directors and officers purchased a total of 475,000 Units for gross proceeds of $190,000. Employees of AEP purchased an additional 307,500 Units under the Offering for gross proceeds of $123,000. The sale of securities to AEP’s directors and officers is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions as the fair market value of the securities purchased in the Offering by AEP’s directors and officers is less than 25% of AEP’s market capitalization. A material change report was not filed in respect of the participation by AEP’s directors and officers as, in the opinion of management, such participation does not constitute a "material change" as defined in National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations.

AEP’s CEO and President, Dirk Maritz, stated “We are very pleased by the strong interest in AEP that we've received from across North America as demonstrated by our oversubscribed private placement. As a national family of operating companies, AEP is also very proud of the continued support of our insiders and employees and commitment to our vision. We are very excited about the prospects for growth we have for the business going forward.”

The Company paid finders fees totaling $261,604 and issued 654,010 finders warrants (each a “Finders Warrant”) entitling the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.60 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance. All securities issued in the Offering are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring on June 7, 2020. The securities issued under the Offering have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws. Accordingly, any securities issued under the Offering to United States purchasers may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. AEP does not intend to file a registration statement in the United States with respect to the securities issued in the Offering. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for potential acquisition targets identified by the Company, general working capital, and capital equipment upgrades.
