CEMATRIX ANNOUNCES RECORD THIRD QUARTER 2023 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Cematrix Corp. has released its consolidated financial results for the quarter and year to date ended Sept. 30, 2023.

"This quarter's financial results were the best in the history of the company: record revenue, strong margins, and a return to positive adjusted [earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization] not only in the third quarter but for the first nine months of 2023. The third quarter is traditionally the strongest quarter as a result of the seasonality of construction work due to the impact of winter in many of our key markets. Our investment in sales and sales support resources continues to drive positive results, and the market acceptance continues to grow for the applications of cellular concrete," stated Jeff Kendrick, president and chief executive officer of Cematrix.

"Revenue for the third quarter was $20.4-million compared to $11.6-million in the third quarter of 2022, a 76-per-cent increase. Gross margins improved to $4.6-million (23 per cent) compared to $2.2-million (19 per cent) in the third quarter of 2022. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2-million this past quarter and $2.1-million for the first nine months of 2023, a $4.0-million improvement for the year to date," stated Randy Boomhour, chief financial officer of Cematrix.

"In Q3, we delivered on our belief that 2023 will be the best year in the history of the company. As of Q3, we have already significantly surpassed our 2022 full-year revenue of $29.0-million. The fourth quarter is historically slower for the company compared to the third quarter as winter reduces overall construction activity, but we expect to have a strong fourth quarter resulting in record revenue for the year and a return to profitability," continued Mr. Kendrick.

"I want to thank all of our employees at Cematrix for their contributions to our success. Quarterly results like these are only made possible through the hard work of every single employee. As always, I particularly want to thank our field staff for staying safe and delivering a quality product to our customers. Our employees continue to make our success possible through hard work and dedication," stated Mr. Kendrick.

"Management is strongly aligned with shareholders. We remain laser focused on becoming a growing, cash-flow-positive company, coupled with a strong balance sheet and a simplified capital structure. This quarter is another step forward in the execution of that strategy, and I remain incredibly optimistic about this year, next year and the future," concluded Mr. Kendrick.
