CEMATRIX Corporation Secures $1.2 Million in Additional Contracts Oil Sands Projects Continue as Planned

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 2, 2015) - CEMATRIX Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CVX) (the "Corporation" or the "Company" or "CEMATRIX") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, CEMATRIX (Canada) Inc. has secured another $1.2 million in contracts, in aggregate, for oil sands and refinery and infrastructure projects. This year's total contracted work is now $9.8 million, of which $1.0 million is slated for 2016.

"CEMATRIX continues to land a record number of contracted sales and our backlog is significantly ahead of the prior year, which stood at $2 million at this same time in 2014. Of significance to CEMATRIX, is that the oil sands projects, for which we have contracts, will continue as scheduled based on re-confirmations from our customers", stated Jeff Kendrick, President of CEMATRIX.

"Furthermore, a significant portion of the Company's growth is forecasted to be in the infrastructure market in North America and that this market will continue to grow, as forecasted" Mr. Kendrick added.

In November of last year the Company announced that it had secured a record $17.3 million in contracts with $9.4 million scheduled for completion in 2014, $6.9 million in 2015 and $1 million in 2016. Changes to project schedules by CEMATRIX customers resulted in $0.7 million of this work being pushed into 2015, which was in addition to $2.1 million of contracted projects that were already re-scheduled to the first half of 2015, prior to the issue of the last news release.

This shift in the timing of projects included the Company's largest contract to date of $6.8 million, $1.5 million of which was originally scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2014. This project is now underway, but the majority of the contracted volume is now scheduled to be placed from late spring to the fall of 2014.
