One Energy has Successfully Closed its Oversubscribed $35+ million Series A Preferred Round

One Energy Enterprises Inc. (the “Company”) today announced that the Company received signed commitments to purchase additional shares (“Additional Series A Investments”) of One Energy Series A convertible preferred stock (“OE Series A Shares”) which, together with prior purchases and sales of OE Series A Shares (collectively, the “Series A Preferred Investments”) represent an aggregate oversubscribed total raise of over $35 million. The Company intends to use the expected proceeds from the Additional Series A Investments to pursue the Company’s business plans and fund working capital needs prior to the anticipated closing (the “BC Closing”) of the Company’s proposed business combination transaction (the “Business Combination”) with Tortoise Ecofin Acquisition Corp. III (“TRTL”).

$2 million of the Additional Series A Investments is expected to close by the end of May 2024; funding of the remaining Additional Series A Investments is contingent upon the fulfillment of certain conditions set forth in the investment documents on or before August 1, 2024.

More information about the proposed Business Combination with TRTL and its terms can be found in TRTL’s public filings and the registration statement on Form S-4 filed by TRTL Holding Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of TRTL established for purposes of the transaction (“TRTL Holding” or “Pubco”), which can be accessed, free of charge, by visiting the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at www.sec.gov/edgar.

The terms of the Series A Preferred Investments include that, upon consummation, if any, of the proposed Business Combination in accordance with the Amended and Restated Business Combination Agreement entered into by the Company and TRTL, among other parties, on February 14, 2024 (as amended on May 13, 2024, and as may be further amended, supplemented or modified, the “Business Combination Agreement”), subject to the satisfaction, at the BC Closing, of certain conditions set forth in the Company’s certificate of incorporation then in effect (the “Company Current Charter”), outstanding OE Series A Shares will either (i) convert automatically into shares of One Energy common stock immediately prior to the BC Closing in accordance with the Current Charter or (ii) be cancelled and exchanged for the right to receive newly-issued Pubco preferred shares in accordance with the terms of the Business Combination Agreement.

The Company is actively exploring additional PIPE or other financing opportunities prior to closing the proposed Business Combination. Such financing transactions, if any, would be pursued subject to and in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement.
