ME2C Environmental Repays Substantial Portion of Unsecured Debt with its Principal Financial Partner and Restructures Remaining Unsecured Obligations

The Company Also Pays Off Remaining Secured Debt

Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - March 6, 2024) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (TSXV: MEEC) (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental " or the "Company"), a leading environmental technologies firm, announced today that it has made a $9.0 million principal payment against its approximate outstanding $13.1 million unsecured note with its principal financial partner, repaid in full the remaining $272,000 principal balance under its secured note, and restructured its remaining debt obligations with such lender.

As part of the restructuring, the Company negotiated a reduction in the non-recourse profit share held by the lender from $17.7 million to $7.9 million and limits the triggering of profit share payments to certain net litigation proceeds. The remaining balance of the unsecured note ($4.1 million), except for the non-recourse profit share, will mature in six months.

This new restructuring also grants the Company the ability to facilitate the sale of certain shares of common stock held by the lender within 30 days and, through the end of 2024, provides the Company the exclusive right to facilitate the sale of all or a portion of the remaining balance of common stock held by such lender. The Company will be entitled to receive certain dollar for dollar credits based upon such sales.

Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental, stated, "We are pleased to have made a substantial payment to our financial partner, including the repayment in full of our secured debt. The restructuring of our remaining debt obligations has already provided millions of dollars of benefits which could increase based upon certain sales of stock that may be made by the lender in the future."
