CEMATRIX Corporation Announces Its Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- CEMATRIX Corporation (TSX VENTURE: CVX) (the "Corporation" or the "Company" or "CEMATRIX") announces the release of its consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013.

CEMATRIX had a strong start to 2013 with record revenues in the first quarter, the majority of which were from one infrastructure project in Windsor, Ontario, which started in December of 2012 and continued throughout 2013. Even though Canadian infrastructure sales continued to increase beyond 2012 levels, sales in the oil and gas sector and in infrastructure in the United States ("U.S.) were lower than that achieved in 2012.

The sales decline in the oil and gas sector was the result of the timing of projects in this area while the decline in U.S. infrastructure sales was due to the lack of available projects in that country. Management expects that both of these sectors will rebound in 2014.

As a result of the above changes in sales patterns, total revenues for 2013 declined by 6% to $8.1 million. Margins also declined as a percentage of total sales due to the greater influence of infrastructure sales, together with lower introductory margins on certain infrastructure projects. This decline in sales margins resulted in an operating loss before income taxes of $247,009 as compared to operating income before income taxes of $156,294 in 2012.

The net loss after income taxes was $220,428 in 2013, as compared to income after tax of $856,294 in 2012. In 2012 the Company recorded a deferred tax asset of $700,000 in recognition of the future benefit of applying the Company's loss carry forwards to reduce future taxable income.

Selected financial information for the year ended December 31, 2013 is as follows:
