PROVIDENCE, R.I., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HDS International Corp. (OTCQB: HDSI), a renewable energy, agricultural sciences, waste management and eco-sustainability company, today announced that, through its wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, HDS Energy & Ecosystems NB, Ltd., it has entered into a new technology license agreement with Hillwinds Energy Development Corp., to expand its licensed territory, among other things.
Under the terms of today's agreement, HDS has expanded its exclusive technology license to cover the entire Province of New Brunswick, Canada, increasing the area of HDS' covered territory by a factor of more than five hundred. Conjointly, all previous license agreements between HDS and HEDC, including the August 15, 2011 Back Bay License and the September 2, 2011 Supplement, have been terminated and superseded in their entirety by today's license.
Today's announcement significantly expands HDS' developing opportunity set associated with carbon capture and reutilization bioenergy. The Province of New Brunswick encompasses the City of Saint John, site of HDS' previously announced anaerobic digester project feasibility study, with this agreement helping formally define and strategically position the Company at the heart of a thriving industrial hub and innovation center with attractive policies and communities.
The financial terms of the transactions herein described were deemed immaterial, with no cash or securities paid or owed by the Company to HEDC. The Company believes that the net impact of today's transaction is exceptionally favorable and in the best interest of all shareholders. HEDC is controlled by the Company's officers and directors, who also control the majority of the Company's basic and fully diluted shares of common stock, and accordingly this transaction was classified as a related-party transaction and was not conducted at arms-length.
