BALLERUP, Denmark, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LIQT) announced that due to regulatory issues it has not been possible for Kailong High Technology to meet the September 30, 2016 deadline for an investment in LiqTech.
The parties have therefor agreed to amend the agreement, so that the joint venture is increasing the payment for the technology of producing Silicon Carbide Filters.
LiqTech will now be paid 2 million USD up-front for the technology and a royalty of USD 2.25 per liter of filters sold in the joint venture in 2018 – 2020.
Zang Zhicheng, Chairman of Kailong High Technology, stated, "Kailong is very optimistic about our partnership with LiqTech. We have had very positive responses from our customers. We have recently placed an order of 2.4 million USD and we expect to place significant additional orders in 2017."
Due to restrictions to meet the September 30th deadline for our investment we have agreed to change our Letter of Intent and pay a higher price to LiqTech for its technology.
We are fully committed to making our Joint Venture a success."
Aldo Petersen, Chairman of LiqTech, noted, "When we agreed to our partnership with Kailong, we knew that there could be time restrictions to meet the September 30th deadline.
However, we are very focused on getting our Chinese joint venture started and we agreed to an alternative solution that would ensure that key objective would be attained."
