Vancouver, Canada, August 24, 2021.
- Go Public transaction closed on May 27, 2021, including the $100 million private placement financing
- Reported Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA of $27.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively, in the second quarter. Revenue increased by $15.5 million, with Adjusted EBITDA down by $0.4 million, respectively, over the same period in the prior year related to downtime on facilities for planned improvements, public listing expenses and COVID-related costs to restart operations
- Commenced construction on the Company’s first renewable natural gas (“RNG”) project, with expected completion in the second half of 2022. The project has a total construction cost of $76 million, a forecasted run-rate EBITDA of $20 million and an equity payback of approximately three years
- Advanced and grew our portfolio of development projects, including one of North America’s largest RNG facilities, which is a combination bio-fuel facility located in Calgary, Alberta
The Company’s existing water and solids treatment and recycling facilities intake, clean and process water and other waste products and are strategically positioned geographically to service municipalities, governments, utilities, infrastructure, industrial, energy and mining industries in North America. As a result of the global pandemic, activity levels in certain of these industries have been depressed which impacted our results for the second quarter, however, they are starting to rebound.
Due to the recovering activity levels, the Company initiated capital improvements on one its best performing facilities to expand capacity and extend its useful life, which also affected the results of operations for the second quarter of 2021. The total capital improvements are estimated to cost $2.2 million, with a payback period of less than three years. The facility is expected to be back online and fully operational by the fourth quarter.
“With our go-public transaction complete, the strongest team and board in the sector and a great project and asset portfolio, we have significant momentum to pursue our strategic purpose,” said Jesse Douglas, CEO. “While the continued impact of the global pandemic on the economy affected our quarterly results, we took an opportunistic approach, upgrading and improving our facilities, to improve the profitability going forward. With industry and society activity picking up in the last couple of months, and our facilities expected to be all back online by early September, we’re anticipating a quick return to regular operations. We also made significant advancements on the execution of our project pipeline with our first RNG project starting construction. With the increasing global need for renewable energy, we’re excited about the potential of this project, and others in our portfolio, to have a significant impact to both future revenue and cash flow and the environment.”

1 EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA is a nonIFRS measure, calculated by adding back the impacts of income tax, finance costs, depreciation and amortization to net income (loss) for the period. EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures provided by other companies. Management believes EBITDA is an important performance metric that measures normalized recurring cash flows before changes in non-cash working capital. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain nonoperating, non-recurring and non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate the earnings and performance of the Company before consideration of capital, financing and tax structures that may vary from company to company. Prior period Adjusted EBITDA has been calculated and presented in accordance with the current period calculation and presentation.
Three Months Ended June 30, 2021 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2020
Revenue for the second quarter increased over the same period in the prior year as revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was disproportionately impacted by the downturn in industry and society activity. Notwithstanding increased revenue, adjusted EBITDA is down comparatively as a result of the downtime for one of the Company’s facilities for capital improvements and increased salaries, wages, and SG&A due to additional set up costs related to GIP’s go public transaction and financing. Net Loss also decreased comparatively due to non-cash listing expenses, offset partially by a gain on debt forgiveness for one of the Company’s facilities.
Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2020
Results for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period prior year are consistent with the second quarter with the exception of January and February 2020, which were not impacted by the downturn in industry and society activity.
