(Expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated)

PhosCan Chemical Corp. (TSX:FOS) today released its quarterly results for the period ended July 31, 2014.

PhosCan reported a net loss of $134 thousand for the three months ended July 31, 2014 compared to a net loss of $104 thousand for the same period of the previous fiscal year. During the six months ended July 31, 2014, the Company reported a net loss of $269 compared to a net loss of $210 in the same period of the previous year. Expenses were generally in line with prior year periods with the exception of lower share-based payments which were offset by a larger decrease in other income, specifically gain on sale of marketable securities and foreign exchange gain.

Cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities were $55.8 million at July 31, 2014 versus $56.2 million at January 31, 2014 and working capital was $56.7 million versus $57.1 million. The decreases were primarily due to administration expenses (excluding depreciation) of $632 thousand and capitalized expenditures on the Martison Project of $67 thousand, net of interest income of $397 thousand.
