CALGARY, ALBERTA – (August 25, 2022) – CVW CleanTech Inc. (the "Company" or "CVW CleanTech") (TSX-V: CVW)  is pleased to announce its operating and financial results the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022.  For complete details,  please refer to the condensed interim financial statements and the associated Management Discussion and Analysis for the period ended  June 30, 2022, available on SEDAR: (www.sedar.com) or on the Company's website: www.CVWCleanTech.com/

Management and the Board of Directors continue to seek to commercialize CVW CleanTech’s technologies, to a broader range of partners than previously contemplated.  Further, we are considering application of its technologies and financial structuring to a broader clean tech industry.

Financial highlights

  • The cash balance at June 30, 2022 was $4.9 million, an increase of $4.5 million since December 2021.  During Q2 2022, stock options exercises and warrant conversions provided a $1.4 million addition to working capital.   
  • For the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported net losses of $1.8 million or $0.02 per share.  The operating loss in Q2 2022, before considering stock-based compensation, has declined from $688,000 to $493,000.  This represents a decrease of approximately 28% compared to Q2 2021.
  • For the six months ended June 30, 2022, CVW CleanTech reported a net loss of $2.6 million as compared to a $1.6 million loss for the six months ended June 30, 2021.  The increase of $1.0 million related to a $1.4 million increase in stock-based compensation expense, offset by declines in other areas.  General and administrative expenses, before considering stock-based compensation, combined to $867,000 for the first half of 2022.   In comparison, general and administrative expenses for the first six months of 2021 were $993,000, a reduction of $126,000, before considering stock-based compensation.    

Darren Morcombe, the Company’s Executive Chairman and interim CEO said, “We are excited by the momentum we have gathered the past months.  Our strategy to streamline the business, restructure the balance sheet and enhance working capital is complete and the last step of the reset will be an appointment of an appropriate CEO.  We are accelerating our business development activities to continue moving towards commercial deployment of our CVWTM technologies with several oil sands companies.   As a new Board, we have realized there may be a wider application for the Company’s technologies and its financing models in the clean technology sector.  This will be reflected when a new CEO is chosen by the Board.”

About CVW CleanTech Inc.

CVW is a clean technology innovator focused on providing solutions to the mining sector of Canada's oil sands industry. The Company's CVW™ technology provides sustainable solutions to reduce the environmental footprint of the oilsands industry. Our technology reduces the environmental impact of oil sands froth treatment tailings, while economically recovering valuable products that would otherwise be lost. CVW™ recovers bitumen, solvents, heavy minerals and water from tailings, preventing these commodities from entering tailings ponds and the atmosphere: volatile organic compound and greenhouse gas emissions are materially reduced; hot tailings water is improved in quality for recycling; and residual tailings can be thickened more readily. A new minerals industry would be created with the production and export of zircon and titanium, essential ingredients in the ceramics and pigment industries.
