The Company Reports Strong Cash Position, Positive Working Capital and Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities
Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - November 21, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2023.
Cash of $2.5 million on hand at September 30, 2023
Working capital of $1.7 million
Q3 2023 total revenues of $6.7 million
Net cash provided by operating activities of $786,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023
Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental, commented, "Our results from this third quarter we believe were solid, with cash on hand that has continued to increase from quarter to quarter during 2023 and which we expect will continue to increase through the foreseeable future. Our revenues remain constant with our strong customer base although reduced by $739,000 in Q3 2023 compared to Q3 2022 and resulting in a net loss for Q3 2023. Such reduction in revenues was significantly impacted by the closure of one of our customer's power plants at the end of 2022. We are confident we will be able to replace this loss of business with new direct supply business and/or new licensing agreements. In addition, net cash provided by operating activities remains positive.
"In addition to such financial highlights, the recently announced settlements in our patent litigation with many of the defendants demonstrate a strong recognition of the validity of our patented technologies. Our lawsuit will continue against the remaining defendants with a trial date to be rescheduled by the Court.
"A business-first approach across the U.S. coal-fired fleet has been our objective from day one and remains the basis for the new business partners that we have obtained in recent years. This strategy will continue as we intend to engage with all utilities across the U.S. who continue to use our patented technologies outside of either a license or supply agreement," continued MacPherson.
"Additional growth opportunities that we expect to see over the next 12 to 18 months include the exportation of our core technologies for mercury emissions outside of North America, including Southeast Asia, and emerging technologies that remain under development for potable water and rare earth element extraction. Our Company is keenly focused on bringing forth environmental technologies that address critical infrastructure needs in an affordable, highly effective manner. We look forward to providing updates to the market as these opportunities further develop," concluded MacPherson.
