MONTREAL QUEBEC / TheNewswire / 13 September 2017. MAG ONE PRODUCTS INC., ("Mag One" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on Magboard Products Inc.'s ("MPI") joint-venture with MagBoard LLC for assembling in Quebec, its magnesium oxide-based, ("MgO") ROK-ONTM Wallboard Panels and Structural Insulated Sheathing ("SIS") products for the building construction industry. First, the Company has engaged consultants to help draft a detailed business plan for launching MPI activities to serve the Eastern Canadian and Northeastern US building construction markets, with the complete plan to be finalized and submitted to the Company's Board for approval in October. Second, as mentioned in Mag One's press release of August 25, 2017, the Company is in negotiations to construct a 12,000 ft2 building in the MRC des Sources region in southwest Quebec using ROK-ONTM SIS, to showcase the many benefits of these panels for industrial and commercial building construction projects.

MPI will use MagBoard LLC's expertise, proprietary technology, and market-leading quality control procedures to build a ROK-ONTM panel-assembly facility in Quebec. Initially, the facility will be used to assemble ROK-ONTM SIS, provide value-added features such as insulation and moisture barriers, then distribute and sell the finished wallboard panels. As Mag One's MgO production facility comes online, MPI's wallboard panel manufacturing will also be integrated into the operations.

"Over the past few months, in close collaboration with our partners, MagBoard LLC management, Mag One has carefully examined the value proposition that ROK-ONTM can offer to the North Eastern Canadian and American markets, " said Gillian Holcroft, President of Mag One. "In an addressable market that we estimate at over a $1 billion, this disruptive product could very well change how buildings are erected in these regions. We are refining our agreement with MagBoard and are also in the final stages of putting the business plan together for MPI." The recent hurricanes in Texas and Florida have further highlighted the need for building products that are fire, rot and mold resistant. In addition, building products that are simpler to use, less expensive to install and thus faster to construct means that for commercial projects such as hotels, they will achieve both occupancy and revenues sooner.

"MPI is a perfect example of the vertical integration that we envisaged when we launched Mag One," said Nelson M. Skalbania, Chairman of Mag One. "We expect to become a major player, if not THE major player in the magnesium ecosystem in North America, from raw materials to finished goods, influencing environmentally-friendly products that affect our daily lives from lighter-weight, fuel efficient automobiles to lower carbon footprint transportation of goods, to higher performing buildings. With our planned Mg-based operations in southern Quebec we intend to transform a barren industrial landscape to a thriving Magnesium Valley and provide jobs for many."

Using statistics from the US and Canadian governments regarding new construction of multi-family dwellings, as well as data from the 2017 Dodge Construction Outlook Report regarding residential, commercial, institutional and industrial building construction, Mag One estimates that MPI's addressable market for ROK-ONTM SIS alone in North Eastern USA is nearly US$1 billion. In 2016, the market was 22.5 billion sqft and estimated to be worth $54 billion by the year 2022. MPI plans to produce these panels in Southern Quebec, Canada, with its largest consumer, the USA just 50 miles away.

The majority of the world's magnesium boards are produced in China where quality control is often a big concern. ROK-ONTM Wallboard Panels are building materials made from MgO and manufactured in sheets similar in format to gypsum boards for building walls. ROK-ONTM panels have an impressive fire, mold, insect and impact resistance, all the while complying with North American building codes, standards and practices. ROK-ONTM SIS are pre-fabricated and pre-cut structural assemblies of ROK-ONTM Wallboard Panels with insulating materials, integrated moisture barriers and windows. Building codes are being tightened throughout North America to require increased energy and fire performance in construction. ROK-ONTM SIS's value-proposition is that it substantially reduces the overall construction time of commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. Cognisant of the disruptive nature of this technology to the industry, ROK-ONTM SIS provides healthy margins all along the value chain, from MPI, to the framing sub-contractor, to the builder and to the building owner/promoter.

Mag One Products Inc. is a company that aims to be the diamond standard in the magnesium (Mg) market by concentrating on four projects at its manufacturing plant site in southern Quebec, Canada.

  1. I.Production of high -purity MgO, Silica and other saleable co-products, byproducts and compounds.

  2. II.Production of 99.9% pure Mg ingots.

  3. III.Assembly and sale of magnesium oxide-based structural insulated sheathing panels.

  4. IV.MagPower's Mg-Air Fuel Cell for emergency power on sea and land.

Key advantages that these four projects share are Mag One's advanced technologies, a modular processing plant expansion concept, and the Company's easy access to tonnes of serpentinite tailings.
