On May 13, 2024, we entered into a non-binding term sheet with a strategic lender for a secured loan facility in the amount of up to $33 million. The secured loan facility is to be used for the completion of the Phase 1 development of our five‑acre recycling campus in the Tahoe‑Reno Industrial Center. The term sheet is non-binding, except for certain confidentiality and break-up provisions, and the lender’s obligation to close is subject to its further due diligence and the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements. The term sheet contemplates that the parties will close on the loan facility by June 30, 2024, subject to the aforementioned closing conditions. There can be no assurance that we will be able close on the secured loan facility.
