BIOX Announces Results Impact of US Tax Extenders Passage

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 21, 2015) - BIOX Corporation (BIOX) (TSX:BX), a renewable energy company, announces favourable results for the business due to the passage of the Tax Extender's legislation by the US government.

Alan Rickard, CEO of BIOX Corporation said, "This is a significant piece of legislation that will provide much needed industry stability and support. On the retroactive passage of this legislation, BIOX expects a positive impact of approximately US$7 million to be recorded in our Fiscal Q1 results, related to the entire 2015 calendar year. Even greater is the market stability that the proactive passage of this legislation provides. This, combined with the EPA setting the Renewable Volume Obligations for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) from 2014 through 2017 and Ontario's Greener Diesel requirement increasing to 3% in 2016, gives us a positive outlook for the biomass based diesel market in North America."

Scott Lewis, EVP Commercial Operations & Growth for BIOX stated, "Biodiesel is currently the only commercial scale advanced biofuel available that can deliver substantial and immediate reductions in the emissions of Greenhouse Gases to the transportation sector, helping us to combat climate change now. Having this framework in place creates market certainty and confirms the commitment by the US for this industry."
