CEMATRIX Corporation Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 26, 2014) - CEMATRIX Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CVX) (the "Corporation" or the "Company" or "CEMATRIX") announces the release of its consolidated financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter Highlights

- The Company secured a record $6.8 million contract, the largest contract in the history of the Company, and several other signed orders for oil sands and refinery and infrastructure projects in the amount of $6.0 million for a total of $12.8 million in aggregate. This year's total contracted work is now a record $17.3 million. Currently $9.4 million of this contracted work is scheduled for completion in 2014, $6.9 million in 2015 and $1.0 million in 2016.

- The Company recorded third quarter sales of $967,382, which brings sales for the first nine months of 2014 to $4,298,846. Sales in the third quarter were lower than forecast as a number of projects were re-scheduled to the fourth quarter. The current forecast, based on the scheduled contracted work mentioned above and other forecast sales, is that sales in the fourth quarter will be close to $5.2 million or 55% of the 2014 forecast sales. The Company continues to work on contracting additional work for 2014 and 2015.

- The loss in the third quarter of $405,994 and the year to date loss of $1,045,884 are the result of the delays in projects and the impact of hiring and training additional operating staff in anticipation of increased activity for projects originally scheduled to commence in the summer, but now contracted and scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2014.
