Scorpex, Inc. (SRPX) Details Recently Announced $30 Million Equipment Agreemen

Scorpex, Inc., an emerging leader of industrial, hazardous and toxic waste disposal services in the Baja Mexico/California region, today announced additional details of its recently announced major equipment contract signed with International Environmental Technologies, Inc. (“IET”) for the acquisition and installation of waste gasification/thermal oxidation equipment as well as a license to use the technology.

Scorpex has agreed to a total purchase price of USD$30,000,000. As terms of the agreement, the purchase price will be paid in four payments: USD$9,000,000 upon the release of funds from the lender; USD$9,000,000 upon IET’s delivery to Scorpex of a certification that the shop drawings and other engineering work for the installation of the Equipment has been completed; USD$9,000,000 upon IET’s delivery to Scorpex of a certification that the erection of the steel framework for all two units has been completed; and USD$3,000,000 upon the final check out, testing of the unit and commissioning.

IET will install the equipment, train supervisory personnel to operate and maintain the equipment, provide a set of spare parts and issue certificates of completion. In addition, IET will provide a warranty for the equipment installed, ensuring that the equipment will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. If malfunction is reported within the warranty period, IET will repair or replace the defective or non-conforming part at no charge to Scorpex.

As stated in yesterday’s press release, IET’s proprietary technology can process waste simultaneously without presorting. The system is virtually silent and without odors, capable of reducing waste volume 95%. The system also features a lower capital investment than competition as well as lower operating costs. With an average construction time of only six to twelve months, Scorpex said it anticipates commencing full operations before the previously projected time frame.

Chief Executive Officer Joseph Caywood commented, “As I said previously, we have made remarkable progress and are very excited to be moving forward so quickly with our business strategy. Signing such a major equipment contract at the dawn of establishing our first waste disposal and processing plant is yet another strong vote of confidence by others who have chosen to join our initiative to address Mexico’s growing demand for industrial, hazardous and toxic waste management.”
