Replenish Nutrients Announces 2024 First Quarter Financial Results and Business Update

OKOTOKS, AB, May 30, 2024 – Replenish Nutrients Holding Corp. (formerly EarthRenew Inc.) (CSE: ERTH) (OTC: VVIVF) (“Replenish” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce its 2024 first quarter financial results and business update.

Business Update and Market Outlook

Consistent with historic seasonal activity, the first quarter of 2024 saw modest revenues, sales volumes, and margins in the Company’s blended fertilizer product – largely due to remaining higher cost inventory carryover. However, year-over-year revenues and sales volumes to 3rd party customers increased, demonstrating consistent and growing demand for the Company’s regenerative fertilizer products. Furthermore, the granulated fertilizer product currently being produced at the Beiseker facility demonstrated strong pricing and margins vis-à-vis the blended product and provides excellent insight into the upside potential of an upgraded Beiseker facility that targets to produce and sell 20,000 to 25,000 metric tonnes of granulated fertilizer per year.

On the financing front, the Company expects to use a combination of internal cash flows, debt and equity, as required, to complete the Beiseker facility upgrade in 2024. On the DeBolt project, the Company’s ERA application continues to progress as the Company looks to secure the final debt and equity financing. Further updates relating to the ERA grant will be made when available.

Overall, Replenish was pleased with the adjustments made to the granulation process at the Beiseker facility during the quarter and is confident in the ability to ramp up granulated fertilizer production upon the completion of the Beiseker facility upgrade in the second half of 2024. Although granulated fertilizer volumes were modest in the quarter, the Company was pleased with the strong granulated pricing and margins and expects significant margin and cash flow improvements from higher granulated production rates and sales volumes out of Beiseker in the later half of the year. Until then, the Company expects the blended fertilizer product margins to sufficiently support the day-to-day cash requirements of the business.

Consolidated Financial Highlights

  • Gross profit of $0.2 million compared to $0.1 million in the prior year, an increase of $0.1 million . The increase is due to stronger margins in the power segment from higher power pricing as well as increased margins from granulated fertilizer products, partially offset by lower margins on blended fertilizer products.
  • Cash flows used-in operating activities of $0.2 million compared to $0.7 million in the prior year, an improvement of $0.5 million . The improvement was driven by favourable changes working capital changes year over year.
  • Revenues of $1.3 million compared to $2.5 million in the prior year, a decrease of $1.2 million . The decrease was due to a large related party sale in the prior year, while 3 rd party revenues and sales volumes increased year over year.
  • Net loss of $1.6 million compared to $0.3 million in the prior year, an increase of $1.3 million .
