Methes Energies Closes a Total of $1,500,000 Working Capital Facility

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2013) - Methes Energies International Ltd. ( NASDAQ : MEIL ), a renewable energy company that offers an array of products and services to biodiesel fuel producers, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Methes Energies Canada Inc., has closed on a total of $1,500,000 Working Capital Facility for its Sombra, Ontario biodiesel manufacturing plant. The Facility was obtained through a Toronto, Ontario lending firm.

The Facility provides for up to $750,000 of cash advances against the company's accounts receivables and an additional $750,000 in cash which can be used exclusively to purchase feedstock for the production of biodiesel.

Nicholas Ng, President of Methes Energies said, "Closing this transaction is a significant step forward for Methes as it provides additional resources to purchase more feedstock and increase production at our Sombra facility. We will now be able to operate the Denami 3000 in Sombra 24/7. We recently hired and trained additional employees and are now ready to process more feedstock into biodiesel. The demand for biodiesel remains strong and we believe that it will continue to do well for the rest of the year and beyond."
