PyroGenesis Comments on Unusual Stock Trading Activity; Provides Guidance on Q2-2017 Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 29, 2017) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. ( (TSX VENTURE:PYR)(OTCQB:PYRNF), a high-tech company (the "Company" or "PyroGenesis") that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes advanced plasma processes and plasma torch products, announces today that it has observed significant and unusual trading in its common stock in recent days. Management knows of no reason that would give rise to such unusual trading and has no significant information to disclose which could lead to such activity. The Company is current on all its regular quarterly filings, has made (in advance) its second quarter interest payment due under its previously completed convertible debenture, and plans to report its second quarter results in August as required by the TSX Venture Exchange.

"Recent market trading activities may well be difficult to understand, not only from the Company's perspective, but by shareholders and market players alike," said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. "We wish to reassure all of our stakeholders and market participants that the fundamentals of PyroGenesis, in terms of activities previously reported on, as well as the progress being made thereon, are not only sound but are moving forward at a rapid pace. Although we have not provided market guidance in the past, we believe, under the circumstances, that it would be most prudent to do so. As such, we can say with certainty that our Q2-2017 results will be significantly better than that posted for the same period in 2016, and in all likelihood will be cash flow positive from an EBITDA (adjusted) basis as well; which will make it the 3rd of the past four quarters that the Company has been cash flow positive on that basis. In short, we have never been better positioned and we are extremely confident with the progress being made across all of our business lines."
