Continued Strong Liquidity, Improved Licensing Revenues Through First Half of Year
Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - August 17, 2023) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (TSXV: MEEC) (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental "or the "Company"), a leading environmental technology firm, has reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.
Cash of $1.9 million on hand at June 30, 2023, and working capital of $1.7 million
Q2 total revenues of $4.1 million
Q2 Adjusted EBITDA positive $251,000
Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental, commented, "Our solid base of supply customers, including several significant utilities, has maintained a stable revenue base in what is historically our company's lowest revenue quarter due to lesser coal demands and plant shutdowns scheduled annually each Spring. The increase in licensing revenues of our core technology for the six months ended June 30, 2023, have offset the lower product supply revenues that much of our industry felt this Spring. Technology licensing revenue increased by 165% or $386,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2023, compared to the prior year period."
"Moving into the last half of the year, we expect to add additional technology licensees and potential supply customers to our strong customer base due to our continued IP efforts leading to trial this fall," continued MacPherson. "The coal-fired power market remains stable in the U.S., and we expect that our product supply revenues will continue to increase during the last half of this year."
"During this second quarter of 2023, we have focused on expanding growth opportunities in new markets, emerging technologies under development, and growing our outreach across the Canadian market in support of our Company's common shares now trading on the TSX Venture Exchange. We are pleased in our current position midway into this year and look forward to providing updates to the market addressing these growth opportunities in the near term," concluded MacPherson.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this press release includes references to Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP financial measure. We view Adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure and, as such, we believe that the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to it is net income (loss). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for interest and financing fees, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash income and expenses. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides us an important measure of operating performance. Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and this measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP, as the excluded items may have significant effects on our operating results and financial condition. Additionally, our measure of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from other companies' measure of Adjusted EBITDA. When evaluating our performance, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered with other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income, and other GAAP results. In the future, we may disclose different non-GAAP financial measures in order to help our investors and others more meaningfully evaluate and compare our future results of operations to our previously reported results of operations.
