  • Durability enhanced single crystal coated NMC cathode validated with CBMM's niobium
  • One-Pot process enables cost effective single nanocrystal coating
  • CBMM is the world's leading supplier of niobium products and technology.

Nano One® Materials Corp. (TSX: NANO) (OTC Pink: NNOMF) (FSE: LBMB) ("Nano One") is a clean technology company with a patented low carbon intensity process for the production of low cost, high-performance cathode materials used in lithium-ion batteries. Nano One announced today that it has successfully completed Phase One of its advanced lithium-ion battery cathode materials coating development agreement with CBMM, the world's leading supplier of niobium products and technology.

"Nano One has successfully demonstrated the use of CBMM's niobium," said Nano One CTO Dr. Stephen Campbell, "to form a protective coating on our single nanocrystal NMC cathode active material. This coating is designed to enhance durability, and our success on this first milestone strengthens the supply chain relationship between CBMM and Nano One while providing yet another demonstration of the flexibility of Nano One's patented One-Pot process."

Phase One applied the niobium coating technology to NMC811 cathode active material and the next two phases will focus on the niobium coating of even higher nickel NMC. This will include scaling of the One-Pot coating technology to demonstrate commercial viability and validate the supply chain. Together, CBMM and Nano One are developing an integrated and differentiated supply chain for niobium coated single crystal cathode materials.

Nano One's patented One-Pot process adds a cost effective niobium coating on each individual nanocrystal to protect the cathode from deleterious side reactions than can otherwise cause rapid performance degradation. The One-Pot process enables this coating to be formed without adding process steps or costs, and the coating can significantly increase the durability of cathode materials in lithium-ion batteries. The niobium coated single crystal cathode materials are applicable to both conventional liquid electrolyte cells and advanced solid state electrolyte cells.

Nano One CEO, Mr. Dan Blondal said, "CBMM is the world leader in Niobium, and by completing this milestone with them, we have advanced a step closer to our commercialization and supply chain development goals. Successful upstream collaborations, such as this, help us bring strategic value to downstream partners as we progress towards the adoption and commercial application of our technologies."

STEER Announces Rollout of its Delivery as a Service Offering with 200 + Small and Medium Businesses

 Facedrive Inc. (" STEER " or " the Company ") (TSXV: FD) (OTCQX: FDVRF), an integrated ESG technology platform, is pleased to announce it has successfully rolled out its Delivery as a Service (" DaaS ") offering with over 200 small and medium businesses (" SMBs "), and is now marketing such services to large big box retailers. STEER's DaaS offering provides a last mile logistics solution for retailers to offer just-in-time deliveries to end-users. The Company expects the DaaS platform to be a key element of its business and a valuable driver of ESG data, reporting and analytics.

DaaS by STEER (CNW Group/Facedrive Inc.)

STEER's DaaS offering has demonstrated operational success, with over 200 local merchants in the Greater Toronto Area and a 99% on-time delivery rate. The Company has also seen many of its customers transition from a hybrid to a full-time arrangement with STEER. Following its success with smaller local vendors, STEER's DaaS offering is being promoted to big box retailers, some of whom have also expressed an interest for the offering. The Company feels its ESG value proposition, powered by its proprietary EcoCRED carbon offset analytics platform, sets the STEER DaaS offering apart from competitors. In particular, EcoCRED's capabilities to capture, analyse and report on key ESG data can appeal to socially-responsible brands and larger retailers, who are increasingly conscious of environmental tracking and reporting protocols.

The global Delivery as a Service market, valued at USD 18.7Bn in 2020, is expected to grow at 18.9% CAGR for the period 2021-2027 1 , making it one of the high-growth sectors in today's global economy. This growth has been accelerated by the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and goes beyond food deliveries, spanning nearly all categories of consumer products.  This megatrend presents qualified providers like STEER with a potentially-lucrative opportunity to increase market presence and significantly increase revenues.

STEER's DaaS offering leverages the assets and technology developed by the Company through its existing on-demand offerings. Specifically, introduction of DaaS enables the Company to draw on its tech stack, operational expertise, and its existing infrastructure—including drivers—to deliver a nimble, agile, cost efficient, and customizable product. STEER's tech-driven delivery management software integrates directly with the merchant's Point of Sale (" POS ") solution and provides visibility, KPI controls and data processing. Moreover, STEER leverages its built-in data science algorithms to analyse daily demand cycles for each individual offering and to streamline resource allocation. In the future, this data will be utilized to identify cross-selling opportunities within the STEER platform and provide customers with analytics, metrics and data that quantify their carbon reduction efforts.

STEER's DaaS offering also capitalizes on synergies with its existing on-demand services through a shared driver fleet. For drivers, this means potentially higher earnings through an additional revenue stream, minimized idle time, and the convenience of managing fewer apps on their phone. For the Company, introduction of the DaaS functionality results in greater operational efficiencies through unified driver acquisition, training and optimized marketing spend across the platform. The Company feels these operational efficiencies will translate into economies of scale as STEER's DaaS onboards more vendors and launches operations in new geographies.

"Delivery as a Service represents a natural evolution for our Company. Having built significant assets and expertise in the mobility and food delivery segments, it is important for us to leverage our existing assets to enter a growing market space. It allows us to grow incremental revenues in the near future while not increasing costs at the same rate. We have confirmed the demand during our launch with over 200 small and medium vendors and are now focused on large retail customers. With the launch of DaaS, STEER's vision of creating a one-stop shop ecosystem for an environmentally-conscious B2C and B2B consumer has come a step closer to fulfilment", said Suman Pushparajah , Chief Executive Officer.

Tantalus Systems Holding Inc. Reports Financial Results for Q1, 2022

Tantalus Systems Holding Inc. Reports Financial Results for Q1, 2022

Tantalus Systems (TSX: GRID) ("Tantalus" or the "Company"), a smart grid technology company focused on helping build sustainable utilities for the future, is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

"We are pleased with our financial results and operating performance despite navigating through a challenging business environment. Revenue contributions from our software and services business segment continue to improve our financial performance and increased to 36% of our total revenue profile in the quarter. Revenue from our Connected Devices and Infrastructure segment also grew as supply chain challenges began to stabilize throughout the quarter. Additionally, we witnessed our Gross Profit Margin increase to 48% as compared to 45% a year ago," stated Peter Londa, President & CEO of Tantalus. "Beyond our financial results, the feedback we continue to receive regarding our acquisition of Congruitive is extremely favorable, as the combined capabilities deliver a differentiated and secure smart grid platform that empowers utilities to connect devices deployed at the edge of the grid, where people live and work, directly to mission-critical systems that utilities rely upon every day to deliver power. While the current business environment remains fluid, we continue to witness strong momentum as utilities seek to digitize distribution grids to improve their resiliency and prepare for the broad adoption of electric vehicles, solar installations and distributed storage."

Consolidated Financial Highlights1:

  • Revenue for the Company increased by 16% to $9.3 million as compared to the prior year, reflecting the momentum witnessed across Tantalus' target market. Utility Software Applications and Services revenue increased by 28% to $3.4 million and represented 36% of total revenue as compared to 33% for the same period last year. The increase from software and services is tied to the increasing number of connected endpoints that drives software licenses and recurring maintenance and support agreements. Congruitive's software and services contributed approximately $290,000 in the quarter. Connected Devices and Infrastructure revenue increased by 10% as COVID-19 pandemic restrictions subsided allowing utilities to accelerate deployments. A portion of delayed shipments in 2021 also materialized in the quarter.

  • Gross Profit2 Margin increased to 48% as compared to 45% for the same period last year. The Company was able to increase Gross Profit Margin despite inflationary pressures across its supply chain. The increase in Gross Profit Margin tied to the Company's continued focus on expanding revenue contributions from software and services and managing its supply chain effectively. Moving forward, the Company initiated a price increase that went into effect on April 15, 2022, to further offset inflationary cost pressures.

  • Adjusted EBITDA3 was ($0.7 million) compared to $0.1 million in the prior year. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to targeted investments in research and development to accelerate key projects, integrating the team from the acquisition of Congruitive, bolstering sales and marketing activities given the continued momentum in the market, and the Company's continued absorption of costs associated with going public.

  • The loss for the period was ($1.8 million) compared to ($2.9 million) in the prior year, an improvement of 38%. The loss per share in the quarter was $0.04 compared to $0.08 in the prior year.

  • The Balance Sheet remained strong with total assets amounting to $40.0 million, inclusive of $12.0 million in cash, compared to $31.0 million of total assets and $14.2 million in cash as at December 31, 2021. The cash balance remained strong despite investing $3.5 million of cash as part of the consideration in acquiring Congruitive on January 31, 2022.

  • Adjusted Working Capital4 was $9.0 million compared to $13.6 million as at December 31, 2021. The decline in Adjusted Working Capital is primarily due to the cash consideration of $3.5 million and corresponding fees and expenses incurred as a result of the acquisition of Congruitive.

Continued Strong Momentum

  • Tantalus secured 5 new utilities in the quarter through its ongoing sales activity. Coupled with over 40 utilities within Congruitive's user community, the combined business now supports over 250 utility customers, including several of the largest investor-owned utilities ("IOUs") in the United States.

  • The Company continues to anticipate growing revenue year-over-year by 20% to 25%, targeting approximately $38.6 to $40.2 million in 2022. This guidance includes revenue contributions from the recent acquisition of Congruitive.

  • Tantalus is actively leading an effort to support current and prospective utility customers with the submission of applications to access funding across several programs being offered by the US Federal government, including the ARPA and BRIC programs. For more information, please go to the Company's website (https://www.tantalus.com/resources/funding/).

"Due to our team's ongoing commitment to adapt to changes and the continued execution of our plan, we are in the fortunate position to make prioritized investments in our next-generation TRUSense™ Fiber Gateway and our AI-enabled data analytics, both of which further position Tantalus as a market leader," noted Mr. Londa. "The TRUSense Fiber Gateway will allow utilities to backhaul consumption and power quality data across a fiber network, gain direct access to and control of EV chargers and inverters for solar panels and battery walls deployed behind the meter, and deliver broadband services to customers. Coupled with the expanding portfolio of AI-enabled data analytics, this one-of-a-kind offering will propel Tantalus forward as a market leader to truly build sustainable utilities. We remain optimistic as market dynamics remain favorable and believe Tantalus remains well positioned for the future."
