CALGARY, Alberta, May 11, 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 first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
“CEMATRIX made significant strides this past quarter that will support our long-term growth initiatives,” stated Jeff Kendrick, President and CEO of CEMATRIX. “Aside from our impeccable safety record, the Company grew revenues by 14% compared to Q1 2021, we made our first investment in Glavel Inc (a ultra-lightweight fill material made from recycled glass), and finalized a new credit facility right sized for our Company. I want to thank all of our employees at CEMATRIX, particularly our field staff, for staying safe and making our success possible through hard work and dedication. The first quarter is traditionally a slower quarter due to the seasonality of construction activity in our primary markets. I am especially excited about the Glavel opportunity and the future potential of that product. I have never been more optimistic about our prospects for 2022 and beyond.”
“In the first quarter of 2022, we finalized the new credit facility with CIBC which further strengthens our overall financial position. The new credit facility provides additional financing capacity to manage working capital requirements in our business during peak periods. We continue to believe, with our improving balance sheet, that CEMATRIX is well positioned to execute on our overall strategic plan,” stated Randy Boomhour, CFO of CEMATRIX.
The following are the business and financial highlights for the first quarter:
