West Vancouver, British Columbia – December 11, 2014 – Waterfront Capital Corporation (“Waterfront Capital” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement, subject to any required regulatory approvals, to provide capital markets and advisory services to Xylitol Canada Inc. (“Xylitol Canada”) of Davenport, Ontario (XYL-V www.xylitolcanada.com).
Xylitol Canada markets xylitol and xylitol-based products. Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener which is marketed globally, including Canada and the United States, and is accepted by the American Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization and the American Dental Association.
“Waterfront Capital’s impressive network of retail Investment Advisors across Canada provides a strong capital markets platform for our company to get our message out for us in a timely and effective manner at a critical time in our growth strategy,” said Andrew Reid, President and CEO, Xylitol Canada.
“The Xylitol Canada story is clearly one that will resonate with our audience of more than 700 Investment Advisors in every major dealer across Canada,” said Rick Peterson, Waterfront Capital’s President.
“Xylitol Canada’s products are seen on the floor of major food stores across the country. As well, the health benefits of an all-natural sweetener and the potential market share available for Xylitol Canada makes this a tremendously interesting growth story,” said Mr. Peterson.
About Xylitol Canada
Xylitol Canada is focused on becoming a major, low-cost manufacturer of xylitol and related products, serving the global market from operations in North America. Its business strategy is to leverage novel proprietary technology and processes to become North America’s premier manufacturer of low cost, high quality xylitol from readily available, environmentally-sustainable biomass. Xylitol contains 75% less carbohydrates and 40% fewer calories than sugar, has a myriad of oral health benefits, including the prevention of tooth decay, and is safe for diabetics. To date, wider spread use of xylitol has been limited due to the lack of a reliable, low cost, high quality supplier.
