Carmanah Reports Second Quarter 2017 ResultsThursday, August 17, 2017
Victoria, BC, August 17, 2017--(T-Net)--Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX:CMH) today reported its second quarter financial results for the period ended June 30, 2017. Currency amounts are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.
All figures below, unless otherwise stated, are for Carmanah's continuing operations and exclude the operating results from the Company's Power business segment. The planned disposal was announced in a press release dated October 11, 2016.
In the second quarter of 2017, the Company generated revenues of USD $12.1 million down approximately 12% from Q2 2016 which had revenues of USD $13.9 million.
The decline in revenues was attributable to overall minor revenue reductions in most the Signals segment except for the Offshore Wind and Traffic verticals which increased year-over-year. The company's Illumination segment revenues also had a decrease over the same period in 2016. The Signals segment declines and increases were mostly the result of project timing differences in the current and comparable quarter. Illumination segment revenue reductions resulted from a transition to the Company's new EverGen product offering.
Net income in the second quarter of 2017 was USD $0.5 million down from net income of USD $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2016.
"Several initiatives for Carmanah came to fruition in the second quarter. After more than a year of product development, we completed the first shipments of our new EverGen outdoor lighting products," said John Simmons, CEO. "And just after quarter end, we made significant progress in our overall business strategy with the sale of our Off-Grid Power business (Go Power!) and the acquisition of Vega Industries in New Zealand."
