The sale is subject to adjustment for improvements or deficiencies that occur between the effective date of the agreement and its closing. The closing is subject to the approval of Nathaniel's stockholders, among other customary closing conditions. Prior to the sale of its gas assets, Nathaniel Energy Corporation entered into and closed a Stock Purchase Agreement with Richard Strain in which Nathaniel purchased 4,900 shares or 49% of the common stock of NEOHC for $3,354,210 making it a wholly owned subsidiary. Payment to Mr. Strain was in the form of a promissory note which is payable on demand at any time after December 31, 2005 . Upon closing, Nathaniel's plan is to eliminate almost 90% of its debt from the proceeds from the sale of the gas and helium assets and to focus its efforts on the commercial rollout of its patented technology, the Thermal Gasifier™ Nathaniel plans to pay off its debts to Richard Strain in the amounts of $3,354,210 and approximately $9,900,000 and the remainder of the proceeds will be used to advance the commercialization of the company's technology and for overhead. Over the last two years, Nathaniel has achieved several key milestones in preparation for the launch of its proprietary technology, the Thermal Gasifier™that diverts waste from landfills and converts it into clean green energy. Nathaniel has increased the value and cash flow in the gas assets to fund operations and complete the development of Nathaniel technology. It has completed the construction of two commercial Thermal Gasifiers™for a project in Europe that provides “proof of process” for the technology. It has assembled a management team to support the commercialization of its technology. Now, Nathaniel is completing its plan for the elimination of the majority of its debt and retaining enough capital to pursue its core business plan. Nathaniel Energy provides industry with an alternative energy comparable to that of fossil fuels. Nathaniel's operational plan focuses on three business models in the commercialization of its Thermal Gasifier™technology: licensing; creating energy infrastructures or utility islands for industrial and commercial hosts; and building, owning and operating small waste-to-energy plants. Nathaniel's Thermal Gasifier™ is a 2- stage gasification system designed to combust waste, biomass, tires and any other solid, hydrocarbon-based materials into inexpensive electrical and thermal energy, while exceeding the most stringent EPA and European Union regulations.
