Vancouver, BC. Aug 3, 2017, Ted Konyi, CEO, Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC) is pleased to announce today the initiation of a funded sales program. The program has been designed to provide funding for clients that want to install Smartcool’s proprietary energy efficiency products but lack the capital budget to do so.

Nick Weedon, Smartcool’s UK National Sales Manager stated, "Having successfully installed in numerous locations in the UK over the last 12 months, we have seen that clients are keen to expand the Smartcool technology across further sites and locations because the Smartcool technology has had a positive effect in driving down energy costs. Because of this, we have decided to implement a funding programme that we expect to allow clients to reap the benefits of the Smartcool technology without experiencing the usual restrictions and unnecessary delays typically associated with large scale capital requirements."

"The appreciable level of interest from several key clients with whom we have discussed our proposed funding program has encouraged us to move it forward. Existing key partners have already started to introduce this to their clients. We believe that reviewing our current sales opportunities can accelerate sales and exceed ambitious company targets for the balance of the year."

We are confident that a funding program should provide the opportunity for many clients to see immediate net cash flow, as we believe that energy savings should be greater than term payments.

In order to fund the new initiative, Smartcool Systems Inc. is announcing today the commencement of a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 5,000 units (each a "Unit") at a price of $1,000 per Unit to raise a total of up to $5,000,000. Each Unit to be comprised of one 8% unsecured non-convertible debenture (each, a "Debenture") and 1000 common shares (each, a "Common Share") of the Company.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to finance installations of its proprietary control technologies in the energy efficiency sector as part of its overall growth strategy.

The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum, payable monthly in arrears and is anticipated to mature on December 31, 2020 (the "Maturity Date"). The Debentures will be non-convertible, non-redeemable and non-transferable. The Debentures partially comprising the Units are not and will not be listed on any stock exchange or market. The Common Shares of the Corporation are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and trade under the symbol "SSC". The Common Shares comprising the Units will be subject to resale restrictions imposed by law, including a regulatory resale restriction for four months and one day from their date of issuance.

The Company has engaged Ascenta Finance Corp. to effect sales of the Units or to find purchasers of the Units. The Corporation has agreed to pay a selling commission or finder's fee to Ascenta of 8% cash and 8% broker warrants of the gross proceeds from the sale of Units to purchasers introduced by Ascenta.

Marshall Farris, President of Ascenta Finance Corp. commented, "The current appetite for financial yield products with investors is very high. By matching investors that are looking for income with companies looking for energy savings, Smartcool will be creating a real win-win scenario. We at Ascenta look forward to assisting the company with this funding program."

Completion of the Offering is subject to the Company closing on a minimum of $200,000 on or prior to September 30th, 2017. The Company intends to make the Offering by way of private placement in Canada but the Units may be offered in other jurisdictions where they can be issued exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
