Updated: Jun 2, 2022
RE Royalties Ltd. (TSX.V: RE) (OTCQX: RROYF) (“RE Royalties” or the “Company”), a global leader in renewable energy royalty-based financing, reports its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (“Q1 2022”). For further information on these results please see the Company's Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for Q1 2022, filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Key business and financial highlights of Q1 2022 include:
USD $4.6 million loan and royalty investment in Outagamie Clean Energy Partners (“OCEP”), a renewable natural gas developer and operator, to finance the construction of a biogas to RNG upgrading project located in Wisconsin.
Commencement of trading on the OTCQX Best Market (“OTCQX”) under the symbol, RROYF.
Revenue and income, including the share of income from the Company’s investment in OCEP, of $655,557, an increase of 50% over the similar period in the prior year.
Gross profit, including changes in fair value of financial assets and share of income in OCEP, of $536,661, an increase of 62% over the similar period in the prior year.
Net loss of $549,728, due mainly to finance expenses related to the issuance of green bonds in December 2021 and expenses associated with the Company’s qualification for trading on the OTCQX Best Market, and the timing on the deployment of green bond funds.
Subsequent to the end of Q1 2022:
Provided a five-year USD $5.6 million senior secured working capital loan to Nomad Transportable Power Systems Inc. (“Nomad”). Nomad is a first mover in the utility, commercial and industrial-scale mobile energy storage sector and sells mobile energy storage systems and provide energy storage as a service.
Provided a $1.6 Million secured loan to ReVolve Renewable Power Corp to support the acquisition of a portfolio of six operational roof top solar generation projects in Mexico.
Launched a best efforts marketed public offering of units (common share and warrant) of up to 12.2 million units for up to $10 Million (“Offering”), led by Integral Wealth Securities Limited and Canaccord Genuity Corp. The Offering is expected to close on or about June 15.
“We continue to accelerate our revenue growth as we execute on our growth strategy and increase our portfolio of investments. Q1 2022 saw our first renewable natural gas investment with OCEP and shortly thereafter, we further added more investments in energy storage with Nomad and solar with ReVolve” said Bernard Tan, CEO. “Despite the challenging macroeconomic conditions in the markets, our existing portfolio performed as expected, and continued to deliver strong, resilient, and predictable cash flows to our investors. Our robust portfolio of potential financing opportunities continues to grow, and we are in advanced discussions on several opportunities with existing and new clients.”
