CEMATRIX Announces Record 2022 Third Quarter Financial Results

CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CEMATRIX Corporation (TSXV: CVX) (OTCQB: CTXXF) ("CEMATRIX" or the "Company") a North American leading manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced cellular concrete products announced the release of its consolidated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

“We are pleased to report to shareholders that our third quarter results reflect the highest quarterly revenue in the history of the Company,” stated Mr. Jeff Kendrick, President and CEO of CEMATRIX. “Our third quarter revenue was up 62% ($11.6M vs $7.1M) and our year-to-date revenue is up 32% ($20.7M vs 15.7M) compared to last year. The third quarter is traditionally our strongest quarter as the construction season in colder climates reaches its peak.   Despite the cement supply chain issues currently being experienced in our industry in addition to other logistical challenges that affected our customer’s schedules we were still able to deliver record revenue. Nevertheless, even with the record revenue, we still experienced some project delays that extended some projects into the fourth quarter of this year setting us up for a very strong fourth quarter to finish the year.”

“Inflationary pressures across all facets of our business led to lower gross margins. In particular, cost increases in salaries, wages, logistics, consumables, cement and ready-mix pricing all contributed to lower gross margins” continued Mr. Kendrick. "Our sales teams continue to win projects as a result of our quality, innovation and competitiveness in our key markets. We continue to invest in sales resources and new equipment to expand geographically in markets that are close to our existing operations. We remain extremely confident that 2023 will be the best year in the history of the Company with the volume of work that we have contracted or in the process of being contracted for 2023,” concluded Mr. Kendrick.

The following are the business and financial highlights for the third quarter and year to date:
