(formerly REACT Energy plc)

("EQTEC", "Company" or the "Group")

Interim results

for the six months ended 31 December 2016

EQTEC plc (formerly REACT Energy plc) (AIM:EQT), the energy infrastructure developer and operator which focuses on the production of clean energy in the UK and Ireland, announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2016.

Gerry Madden, Chief Executive Officer commented:

"EQTEC plc enters the second half of the financial year with renewed optimism. In January shareholders voted to further strengthen ties between EBIOSS Energy AD and the Group by approving a debt for equity conversion which resulted in EBIOSS becoming the Company's majority shareholder.

This clearly demonstrates shareholder support for our strategy, which in conjunction with EBIOSS, sets out to deploy EBIOSS's proprietary EGT Gasifier Technology, in the UK Energy from Waste sector both into existing Group projects and EBIOSS projects, as well as new projects in the pipeline.

The debt for equity conversion announced in January together with the recent further conversions that took place as part of recent placings resulted in approximately EUR6.1million of external debt being converted into equity adding strength to the Company's balance sheet.

Thanks to the support of new investors, we successfully raised new funds of over EUR1million in February and March 2017 to allow us to further strengthen our balance sheet and to provide the financial resources and flexibility to advance our portfolio of projects including Newry and in collaboration with EBIOSS, existing Energy from Waste projects in the UK using EGT.

We plan to implement in the UK the Framework Agreement signed between EBIOSS and the state owned China Energy Engineering Group a Global Fortune 500 company with Revenues in excess of $33 billion. The agreement involves Energy China being responsible for the construction of projects through EPC contracts using EQTEC Gasifier Technology and providing project - level debt and equity.

Key to our future is the continued support of all of our stakeholders and we look forward to updating the market further as we continue to develop and consolidate our position in the Energy from Waste market in the UK."

Financial highlights during period

   --        Group revenue of EUR0.105 million (H1 2015: EUR0.13 million) 
   --        Administrative costs of EUR0.45 million (H1 2015: EUR0.25 million)

-- Completed two fundraises with external shareholders, raising, in aggregate, GBP985,000 (before expenses) to enable the Company to progress Newry and Clay Cross, and in conjunction with EBIOSS, continued investment in its pipeline of UK Energy from Waste ("EfW") projects

-- EBIOSS converted all of the outstanding debt and accrued interested of, in aggregate, approximately EUR920,000 drawn under the EBIOSS loan facility, which was entered into on 8 January 2016 and was amended on 12 December 2016

- Company's balance sheet strengthened as a result and EUR420,000 still available to be drawn under the EBIOSS loan facility

- EBIOSS continues to be interested in 50.03% of the Company

-- Following the signature of a conditional heads of agreement in October 2016 to potentially fund, through a number of third parties, the repowering of the Newry biomass plant, the parties are now in the final stages of due diligence. The heads of agreement envisage a total investment of up to GBP11.2 million into NBL

Outlook

The Company has formed an important strategic partnership with EBIOSS, which will both provide it with access to a greater range of financial resources to fund its continuing operations and development as well as providing a stronger platform to exploit the significant opportunity currently in the EfW sector using EGT technology and EBIOSS's existing contacts and pipeline in the UK. While the economic and political backdrop remain challenging, with the support of all of our stakeholders we are well placed to deliver on our plans. We remain both determined and uniquely positioned to lead the industry in identifying and realising the significant potential that exists in the Energy from Waste sector in the UK.

Chairman's and Chief Executive's Report

The Company presents the 2016 Interim Report, which gives an update on the activities of the Company over the six month financial period to 31 December 2016 as well as updating on recent activities, including the major debt-for-equity conversion of amounts owed to EBIOSS Energy AD ("EBIOSS") by Newry Biomass Limited ("NBL"), the Company's 50.02% subsidiary, which was approved by shareholders on 6 February 2017.

EBIOSS is an industrial engineering group and is involved in the engineering, construction, project development and operation of waste-to-synthesis gas plants. It operates at an international level and owns a state of the art technology through its subsidiary EQTEC Iberia SL and differential positioning in designing and construction of waste gasification power plants with power capacity from 500 kilowatts ("kWs") to 20 megawatts ("MWs"). EBIOSS has developed its own technology, the EQTEC Gasifier Technology ("EGT") by which different types of waste are transformed into synthesis gas. This leading technology on waste gasification has made possible the design construction and/or operation of waste gasification plants in Spain, France, Germany, India, Italy and Bulgaria among other countries, for third party international energy groups and for use by EBIOSS itself. EBIOSS is quoted on Mercado Alternativo Bursátil ("MAB"), the alternative market of the Spanish Stock Exchanges.

During the financial period in question the Company:

-- Signed conditional heads of agreement to potentially fund, through a number of third parties, the repowering of the Newry Gasification plant. The heads of agreement envisage a total investment of up to GBP11.2 million into NBL;

-- Continued to operate its wind turbine at Pluckanes and three biomass heat projects in the UK, generating revenue of approximately EUR0.105 million; and

-- Incurred administrative costs of EUR0.45 million and reported a loss for the period from continuing operations of EUR0.7 million.

Post period end:

-- In January 2017, shareholders voted to further strengthen ties with EBIOSS Energy AD ("EBIOSS") by approving a EUR5.15 million debt-for-equity conversion of amounts owed by the Company's 50.02% subsidiary, Newry Biomass Limited ("NBL"), to EBIOSS, which resulted in EBIOSS becoming the Company's 51% shareholder;

-- Completed two fundraises with external shareholders, raising, in aggregate, GBP985,000 (before expenses) to enable the Company to progress Newry and Clay Cross, and in conjunction with EBIOSS, continued investing in its pipeline UK EfW projects;

-- As part of the recent fundraises, EBIOSS converted all of the outstanding debt and accrued interested of, in aggregate, approximately EUR920,000 drawn under the EBIOSS loan facility, which was entered into on 8 January 2016 and was amended on 12 December 2016;

- Company's balance sheet strengthened as a result and EUR420,000 still available to be drawn under the EBIOSS loan facility;

- EBIOSS continues to be interested in 50.03% of the Company; and

-- Following the signature of a conditional heads of agreement in October 2016 to potentially fund through a proposed combination of third parties the repowering of Newry, the parties are now in the final stages of due diligence. The heads of agreement envisage a total investment of up to GBP11.2 million into NBL

Current Trading and Prospects

The Company is a clean energy project developer and operator. The Company seeks to take projects from "Greenfield" (greenfield land) stage to "Shovel Ready" stage (projects where planning and development is advanced enough that, given sufficient funding, construction can begin within a very short time frame) with turnkey construction contracts and financial packages in place. Debt and equity partners are then sought to fund the construction phase in return for a share of the project equity.

The Company develops and builds projects currently using wood and waste wood as the sustainable fuel source. The core focus has been on converting biomass or wood into clean electricity and heat. This was based primarily on the technology available to convert the fuel into power and the level of government subsides available specifically for biomass fuel and the relevant conversion technology.

The Company has continuously reviewed its strategy, cost base and financing structures to ensure it is well positioned and appropriately capitalised to take advantage of opportunities that present in the sector in which it operates.

The following factors have influenced the formation of the business strategy which has been decided upon, in conjunction with its majority shareholder, EBIOSS.

-- The political and regulatory environment within the UK continues to be challenging, with a lack of direction and continued changes to the long-term support mechanisms available for renewable energy projects developed under the Electricity Market Review (EMR).

-- The introduction of Contracts for Difference (CfD) in place of the Renewables Obligation (RO) regime.

-- The transformation in the UK of the management of household waste leading to the transition from landfill to recycling / composting and energy recovery.

-- The need to meet 2020 landfill diversion targets for biodegradable waste being a major driver for waste policy and infrastructure development in the UK over the last ten years.

-- The movement of the waste market towards what is termed 'merchant' projects utilising private, specialist fuel supply such as refuse derived fuel (RDF), municipal solid waste (MSW), commercial and industrial waste and waste wood.

-- The increased use of new advanced conversion technologies that include specialist sub sectors, like advanced gasification. EGT is currently capable of gasifying urban solid waste through the use of pre-treatment and pelletisation, which involves a process of compressing or moulding the waste into the shape of a pellet.

-- The potential of Energy from Waste (commonly abbreviated to EfW) in particular to deliver low carbon energy in a cost-effective way and as a non-intermittent source that helps provide energy security.

-- Waste derived renewable electricity from thermal combustion in England is forecast to grow from the current 1.2 terrawatt hours ("TWh") to between 3.1TWh and 3.6TWh by 2020.

-- Due to the saturation of landfills in the UK, approximately 3 million tonnes of RDF are currently exported to other countries such as Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands for disposal by incineration. The cost associated with this export strategy could be significantly reduced with the construction of gasification plants using EGT.

Business Strategy

Following the investment by EBIOSS into EQTEC through the debt-for-equity conversion as announced on 10 January 2017, the combined business strategy of EQTEC and EBIOSS, as its majority shareholder, is as follows:

-- To focus on taking advantage of the significant opportunities in the EfW sector, involving Refuse Derived Fuel ("RDF"), MSW and wood, in the UK market.

   --        EQTEC will deploy EGT in its existing projects and future projects in the UK. 

- Includes completing the repowering of Newry as one of the last remaining RO projects in the UK.

-- EBIOSS to use all reasonable efforts to provide opportunities for EQTEC to participate in gasification projects which EBIOSS is currently involved in, or will be involved in, throughout the UK.

-- Implement the Framework Agreement signed in May 2016 between EBIOSS and the Chinese state-owned company, China Energy Engineering Group ("Energy China") which sets out objectives and parameters surrounding the completion of EfW projects in the UK. The Framework Agreement sets out that Energy China, a Global Fortune 500 company with Revenues in excess of $33 billion, would be responsible for the construction and funding of projects in the UK that use EGT through Engineer, Procure and Construct ("EPC") contracts.

-- Use combined resources of EQTEC and EBIOSS who both have significant experience in the EfW sector and who both possess significant knowledge of energy markets, clean technologies, fuel sources, project development, project finance and project delivery.

EQTEC together with EBIOSS have agreed on of a business model which aims to develop merchant projects based on the conversion of MSW in the UK.

The projects identified will have the following positive attributes:

   --        Do not depend on the government subsidy in the form of RO, CfDs or tariffs 
   --        Have no risk to fuel supply 
   --        Enjoy a high potential return for investors 

The EfW plant business model assumes two sources of revenue:

   --        Revenue from the sale of energy at an unsubsidized market price 
   --        Revenue from accepting waste know as a "Gate Fee" 

Current project portfolio

Newry

Using proceeds from the recent fundraises in February and March 2017, the Company has further progressed the development of the Newry project with tenders issued for Civil Works and Mechanical and Electrical Works. A Purchase Order for Civil Works is expected to be issued shortly.

The Group is currently in the final stages of a due diligence process relating to a proposed investment of up to GBP11.2 million into NBL, pursuant to the heads of agreement announced on 11 October 2016, which will be used to repower the plant to 4MW using EGT. The Company is confident that the plant will be able to again export electricity to the grid by the revised deadline of 31 March 2018 agreed with Ofgem.

If, however, it is not possible to conclude agreement with the parties on this GBP11.2 million investment, the Company, in partnership with EBIOSS and using their combined resources, would seek to commission the project such that it is capable of commercial operation to ensure that the ROCs are registered for the plant by 31 March 2018. In this scenario, the plant having been commissioned to such standards, would be refinanced with third party funders and completed in full.

Enfield, London

The Enfield Biomass project is a 12MW biomass gasification project located in Enfield, London. The project has secured full planning and permitting approval and is ready to construct. The Company obtained an updated planning permission for converting 60,000 tonnes per annum of Grade C wood waste in January 2014. An environmental permit was received April 2012.

The Company has opened discussions with a new owner in relation to the future of this site and further updates will be made as and when appropriate.

Clay Cross

The Company has received approval for the construction and operation of an energy recovery facility at Clay Cross Facility in Derbyshire (the "Clay Cross Facility") by Clay Cross Biomass Limited ("Clay Cross Biomass"), a company in which EQTEC has a 90% interest, subject to finalising an agreement under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 pursuant to the conditions set out in the report to the Committee.

Clay Cross Biomass will use EGT to power the plant as part of the EPC contract for the construction of the Clay Cross Facility.

The Company is currently in preliminary discussions to secure finance for the construction of the Clay Cross Facility and estimates that it will take approximately 18 months from obtaining finance to the final commissioning of the plant. The expected cost to develop the Clay Cross Facility is approximately GBP50 million.

UK Energy from Waste Project Pipeline

EBIOSS intends to use all reasonable efforts to provide opportunities for EQTEC to participate in gasification projects which EBIOSS is currently involved in or will be involved in throughout the UK. The Company is currently assisting EBIOSS to progress its EfW project pipeline in the UK which form part of the Framework Agreement with Energy China.

Biomass Heat

The Company owns 30% of a special purpose vehicle ("SPV") set up with Equitix ESI Finance Limited ("Equitix") and receives development and on-going management fees from it. The SPV currently operates three biomass heat projects in the UK.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the primary incentive scheme in operation for these projects. The digression in RHI tariffs for boilers below 200kw range has meant that it is unlikely that the Company will pursue any other projects in this sector and at this level.

Wind Electricity Generation

In Ireland, the Company is currently operating a cash generating 800kW Enercon wind turbine in Pluckanes, County Cork. This plant was financed by company equity and bank debt provided by AIB Bank plc and has a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement with Viridian Energy Limited.

The Company is reviewing its participation in this sector in light of recent developments at corporate level.

Outlook

The Company with the support of the Company's existing stakeholders, new investors and its majority shareholder EBIOSS, has the potential to take advantage of the significant opportunities presenting themselves in the UK EfW market and in turn advance its pipeline of projects throughout the UK.

The Company has formed an important strategic partnership with EBIOSS, which will both provide it with access to a greater range of financial resources to fund its continuing operations and development as well as providing a stronger platform to exploit the significant opportunity currently in the EfW sector using EGT technology and EBIOSS's existing contacts and pipeline in the UK.

The Company looks forward to updating its shareholders in the future on further developments as the Company further builds its position in the EfW market.

EQTEC plc (formerly REACT Energy plc)

Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

for the six months ended 31 December 2016

   1.      GENERAL INFORMATION 

EQTEC plc (formerly REACT Energy plc) ("the Company") was incorporated in Ireland on 2 October 2008. The address of its registered office and principal place of business is Building 1000, City Gate, Mahon, Cork, Ireland. The Company's shares are quoted on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc.

The principal activity of the Company and its subsidiaries (together the "Group") is to identify, develop, build, own and operate clean energy electricity and heat generating power plants in the UK and Ireland.

   2.      BASIS OF PREPARATION 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are for the six months ended 31 December 2016 and are presented in Euro (EUR), which is the functional currency of the parent company. They have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard (IAS) 34 Interim Financial Reporting. They do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), and should be read in conjunction with the Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2016.

The Group incurred a loss on continuing operations of EUR748,003 (6 months ended 31 December 2015: EUR411,794) during the period ended 31 December 2016, and it had net current liabilities of EUR9,828,941 (30 June 2016: EUR6,603,205) and net liabilities of EUR40,393 (30 June 2016: net assets of EUR817,044) at 31 December 2016.

The Company recently concluded discussions with EBIOSS Energy AD ("EBIOSS") such that in return for a debt-for-equity conversion of amounts owed by NBL to EBIOSS, EBIOSS was issued such number of new ordinary shares in EQTEC so that it was interested in just under 51% of the Company's then enlarged issued share capital.

Details of the transaction and the shareholder resolutions required to approve the transaction are contained in the circular which was issued to all shareholders on 10 January 2017. The resolutions were approved at the EGM on 6 February 2017. As a result of the transaction with EBIOSS, the Company has formed a strategic partnership with EBIOSS which will both provide it with access to a greater range of financial resources to fund its continuing operations and development as well as a stronger platform to exploit the significant opportunity currently in the Energy from Waste sector using EGT technology and EBIOSS's existing contacts and pipeline in the UK. Development of, and revenue generation from, the principal assets of the Company will require additional financing which is expected to be sourced in due course.

During February and March 2017, the Company raised GBP985,000 before expenses through two placings to fund ongoing working capital needs and in particular to fund the further progression of existing projects such as Newry and Clay Cross and also to progress, in conjunction with EBIOSS, existing Energy from Waste projects in the UK waste sector. As part of recent fundraising activities, an approximate EUR920,000 of debt was removed from the Company's Balance Sheet through further debt-for-equity conversions, thereby allowing EBIOSS to maintain its majority shareholding in EQTEC.

The Directors have given careful consideration to the appropriateness of the going concern basis in the preparation of the interim financial statements. The validity of the going concern basis is dependent upon additional financing being obtained for the development of, and revenue generation from, the principal assets of the Company and the refinancing of existing debt facilities with Altair Group Investment Limited ("Altair") which are due to be repaid in July 2017 (see Note 12 (b)). As no definite agreement has been concluded on either of these a material uncertainty exists in relation to the Company and the Group's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Directors believe that progress towards securing finance and restructuring the Altair loan have been made. The Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company will source the necessary financing and consent to restructure the Altair loan and that the Group will have adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. For these reasons the Directors continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the interim financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that would result if the Group was unable to continue as a going concern.

The Group continues to invest capital in developing and expanding its portfolio of clean energy projects. The nature of the Group's development programme means that the timing of funds generated from developments is difficult to predict. Management have prepared financial forecasts to estimate the likely cash requirements of the Group over the next 12 months. The forecasts include certain assumptions with regard to the costs of ongoing development projects, overheads and the timing and amount of any funds generated from developments. The forecasts indicate that during this period the Group will require additional funds to continue with its activities and its planned development program.

Whilst the strategy is to build, own and operate plants, once a site has been secured and planning and permitting obtained the Group would be in a position, if it so chose, to monetise the value of the project.

The interim financial information for both the six months ended 31 December 2016 and the comparative six months ended 31 December 2015 are unaudited and have not been reviewed by the auditors. The financial information for the year ended 30 June 2016 represents an abbreviated version of the Group's financial statements for that year. Those financial statements contained an unqualified audit report, with an emphasis of matter paragraph on going concern. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements have neither been audited nor reviewed pursuant to guidance issued by the Auditing Practices Board.

   3.      BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Group and all subsidiaries. The financial period ends of all entities in the Group are coterminous.

   4.      SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

The principal accounting policies used in preparing the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial information are unchanged from those disclosed in the Annual Report and Accounts of EQTEC plc (formerly REACT Energy plc) for the year ended 30 June 2016.

   5.      ESTIMATES 

The preparation of the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of policies and reported amounts of certain assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses together with disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an on-going basis. Revisions of accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimate is revised.

The judgements, estimations and assumptions applied in the unaudited interim financial statements, including the key sources of estimation uncertainty, were the same as those applied in the Group's last annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2016.

An income tax charge does not arise for the six months ended 31 December 2016 or 31 December 2015 as the effective tax rate applicable to expected total annual earnings is Nil as the Group has sufficient tax losses coming forward to offset against any taxable profits. A deferred tax asset has not been recognised for the losses coming forward.

As noted in note 14 below, 110,162,735 ordinary shares were issued after the period end. If these shares were in issue prior to 31 December 2016, they would have affected the calculation of the weighted average number of shares in issue for the purposes of calculating both the basic loss per share and diluted loss per share by 18,360,456 (assuming the shares were issued in December 2016).

Borrowings at amortised cost

(a) On 15 July 2015, the Board of REACT announces that it has raised GBP1,000,000 (before expenses) through a Secured Loan Facility ("SLF"). EcoFinance, a group which sources finance for renewable energy projects, has provided the SLF. The SLF is at a fixed rate of 15% per annum, the interest on which will be paid monthly in arrears. The SLF is for a five-year term and the principal together with any accrued interest will be repayable by a bullet repayment at the end of the term. The SLF is secured by mortgage debentures, cross guarantees and share pledges over REACT and its subsidiary companies.

(b) On 24 July 2015, as part of the Scheme of Arrangement announced on 14 July 2016 as approved by the High Court in Dublin, the existing secured debt held by Altair Group Investment Limited ("Altair" or "the Secured Creditor"), comprising the 9% Secured Loan Note of GBP1.5 million issued in 2015 and the Examinership financing facility of EUR500,000, was refinanced by way of a new two-year 7.5% GBP2 million Convertible Secured Loan Note ("CSLN"), repayable in July 2017, and is secured by the same security package granted in favour of EcoFinance. This is governed by an inter-creditor deed under which the SLF security plus interest and costs shall rank in priority to the CSLN security plus interest and costs. Under the terms of the CSLN, the Secured Creditor has the right to convert up to GBP1 million into new Ordinary Shares at GBP0.10.

(c) On 8 January 2016 (subsequently amended in March 2016), the Company announced that it had secured a EUR750,000 Facility from EBIOSS Energy AD. The Company may use the proceeds from the facility for the continuing investment in its portfolio of biomass gasification projects in the UK, and for working capital for the Group. The facility is unsecured and is at a fixed rate of 8% per annum on outstanding capital balances, which will accrue and be repaid in full on repayment of the facility. The original agreement noted that the facility is repayable on demand at any time after 7 January 2017.

On 12 December 2016, it was announced that the terms of the facility had been amended by agreement between the parties such that the amount of the facility was increased by EUR600,000 to EUR1,350,000 and the repayment date of the increased facility was extended to 7 January 2018. The increased facility is to cover the working capital requirements of the Company.

(d) Bank borrowings amounting to EUR1,073,250 at the balance sheet date are secured by a charge over the shares and assets of Pluckanes Windfarm Limited, a subsidiary of the Group. Current interest rates are variable and average 4.0% per annum, including the Bank's margin. All amounts due with respect to this facility are repayable on demand by the bank at any time at its absolute discretion. However, without prejudice to the Bank's right to demand immediate payment, the facility is to be repaid by way of 60 quarterly instalments. The repayment schedule of these instalments is as follows:

   16.    FAIR VALUES 

For financial reporting purposes, fair value measurements are categorised into Level 1, 2 or 3 based on the degree to which inputs to the fair value measurements are observable and the significance of the inputs to the fair value measurement in its entirety, which are described as follows:

   --      Level 1: quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. 

-- Level 2: valuation techniques for which the lowest level of inputs which have a significant effect on the recorded fair value are observable, either directly or indirectly.

-- Level 3: valuation techniques for which the lowest level of inputs that have a significant effect on the recorded fair value are not based on observable market data.

Management uses valuation techniques to determine the fair value of financial instruments (where active market quotes are not available) and non-financial assets. This involves developing estimates and assumptions consistent with how market participants would price the instrument. Management bases its assumptions on observable data as far as possible but this is not always available. In that case management uses the best information available. Estimated fair values may vary from the actual prices that would be achieved in an arm's length transaction at the reporting date. The following table shows the Levels within the hierarchy of financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis at period-end.

   17.    EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING DATE 

On 10 January 2017, the Company announced a conditional debt for equity conversion of EUR5,150,226 owed by Newry Biomass Limited ("NBL") to EBIOSS Energy AD ("EBIOSS") into 78,210,000 new ordinary shares of EUR0.001 in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") ("EBIOSS Shares"), which was approved by shareholders at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held on 6 February 2017. As a result, EBIOSS converted its debt of EUR5,150,226 into 78,210,000 new Ordinary Shares, resulting in EBIOSS owning approximately 51% of the company. In order to issue the EBIOSS Shares, shareholders were also required to approve a share capital reorganisation of each existing ordinary share of nominal value EUR0.10 into one new ordinary share of EUR0.001 and one deferred share of EUR0.099. At the same EGM, the Company changed its name from REACT Energy plc to EQTEC plc.

On 20 February 2017, the Company announced that it had raised GBP500,000 (before expenses) through a placing of 10,000,000 new Ordinary Shares at 5.0 pence per share. In addition, the Company has agreed with EBIOSS to convert an amount of EUR585,000 (GBP500,000) under the loan facility dated 8 January 2016, which was amended on 12 December 2016, into 10,000,000 new Ordinary Shares at a conversion price of 5.0 pence per share.

On 9 March 2017, the Company announced that it had raised GBP485,000 (before expenses) through a placing of 7,461,538 new Ordinary Shares at 6.5 pence per share. In addition, the Company has agreed with EBIOSS to convert an amount of EUR335,717, being equal to the outstanding balance of capital plus accrued interest due under the loan facility dated 8 January 2016, which was amended on 12 December 2016, into 4,491,197 new Ordinary Shares at a conversion price of 6.5 pence per share.

Following both placings and loan conversions, EBIOSS are currently interested in 92,701,197 Ordinary Shares, equating to 50.03 per cent. of the enlarged share capital of the Company.
