  • Net loss for the three months ended July 31, 2023 was $4.8 million, $23 million less than the period ended July 31, 2022, primarily due to the 2023 rental revenue of approximately $0.2 million and gain on settlement of debt of $0.2 million, plus recognition of an impairment loss on the FS Property of $2.7 million (due to a condition of sale) compared to the impairment recognition related to property, plant and equipment of $25.4 million in 2022.
  • During the quarter ended July 31, 2023, Cielo had negative operating cash flow of $1.4 million, consistent with prior periods, and as expected in a pre-revenue business. Cielo expects cash flow from operations to be negative during the product development stages of the Company.
  • Financing costs decreased approximately $0.1 million for the 3-month period primarily due to the lessened interest expense as debt decreased from the comparative period.
  • General and administrative costs approximated costs incurred in the comparative period. Professional fees increased approximately $0.2 million due to increased corporate development activities, while personnel decreased approximately $0.3 million as Cielo continues to minimize its personnel costs. Property tax variance of $0.06 million is due to adjustments in the comparative period. Office and administration cost increases include costs associated with the exit of former Calgary office in the amount of approximately $0.18 million.

OUTLOOK

During, and subsequent to, the quarter ending October 31, 2023, Cielo anticipates the following:

  • Subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), the completion of the proposed asset purchase transaction with Expander Energy Inc. (“Expander”), as disclosed in a news release dated September 20, 2023 (the “Proposed Transaction”), and the resulting plans for the Company’s first commercial facilities utilizing the technologies to be exclusively licensed from Expander.
  • The closing of a minimum of C$45 million in connection with, and as a condition to, closing of the Proposed Transaction.
  • Subject to the terms and conditions previously disclosed, including the approval of the TSXV, the acquisition of land in Dunmore, Alberta from Renewable U Energy Inc. to be used for the construction and operation of a commercial facility.
  • The holding of the Company’s annual general and special meeting of its shareholders on October 26, 2023, at which the shareholders of the Company will be asked to approve, among other things, an up to 1 for 15 securities consolidation, which will be subject to the approval of the TSXV (and potentially the completion of the proposed securities consolidation).
