Begins 2023 with Strong Financial Improvements and Increased Technology Licensing Revenues
Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - June 8, 2023) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental "or the "Company"), a leading environmental technology firm, has reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
The company reports the following financial improvements when compared to December 31, 2022. For the period ending on March 31, 2023:
- Cash on hand increased by $1.0 Million
- Technology Licensing Revenues increased by $0.4 Million
In addition, the Company reported total revenue of $3.0 Million for the quarter and had working capital of $1.8 Million at March 31, 2023.
"The Company continues to operate from the solid industry position that we are establishing in our core business, mercury emissions capture technologies," stated Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental. "Due to our IP efforts across the coal-fired utility industry, our technology licensing revenues grew significantly during the period. Our revenues were slightly lower, by approximately $300,000, as several large utility customers took earlier than usual maintenance shutdowns; however, we gained significant new supply business during this first quarter. As we move further into 2023, we expect that our technology licensing revenues will continue to grow and, with a stable coal-fired power market, we expect the second quarter of this year to show increased supply revenues as our customers meet growing energy demands. Our revenues remain on track to yield significant year-over-year improvements as we have experienced consistently during the last few years."
Continued MacPherson, "As we move into the second half of 2023, our expansion efforts into new markets and technologies remain actively underway. The conditional approval to list onto the TSX Venture Exchange and new, significant mercury emissions supply business were marked achievements during this quarter of 2023. We are moving into this year financially strong and will continue to progress as we move through this year," concluded MacPherson.
