EverGen Infrastructure Reports Q3 2023 Results

EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (“EverGen” or the “Company”) (TSXV: EVGN) (OTCQX: EVGIF), today reported financial results as at and for Q3 2023. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated and have been prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Financial Highlights for Q3 2023:

  • Revenues of $2.3 million increased 17% from $2.0 million in Q3 2022, primarily due to incremental RNG production from the completion of the Phase I RNG expansion project at GrowTEC and the commencement of the 10-year organic waste processing agreement with the City of Regina. Revenues are expected to continue to increase in future periods, relative to previous periods, through the completion of the Fraser Valley Biogas RNG Expansion Project and increased RNG production at GrowTEC.
  • Net loss of $1.1 million for Q3 2023 decreased 40% from $1.8 million in Q3 2022 primarily due to an increase in revenues and income tax recovery, as well as a decrease in direct operating costs, partially offset by the recognition of $0.8 million of insurance proceeds in Q3 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $0.4 million for Q3 2023, decreased slightly compared to Q3 2022 primarily due to the recognition of $0.8 million of flood-related insurance proceeds during Q3 2022.

“This quarter marks the commencement of a significant ramp up in revenue across our platform,” said Mischa Zajtmann, CEO of EverGen. “With mechanical completion at Fraser Valley Biogas and the addition of another material organics processing facility in Regina, the foundation has been set for future revenue growth as we continue to execute on core project delivery.”

Non-GAAP Measures

EverGen uses certain financial measures referred to in this press release to quantify its results that are not prescribed by IFRS. The terms EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and working capital are not recognized measures under IFRS and may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. EverGen believes that, in addition to measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, the non-IFRS measurement provide useful information to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to generate cash, profitability and meet financial commitments. These non-IFRS measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, tax and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for share-based payment expenses, unusual or non-recurring items, contingent consideration gains and losses and non-controlling interests in adjusted EBITDA. Working capital is calculated as current assets less current liabilities.
