Wavefront Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc. (Wavefront or the Corporation), (TSX VENTURE: WEE)(OTCQX: WFTSF) a leading-edge provider of fluid injection processes primarily for mature field revitalization (Enhanced Oil Recovery or "EOR") as well as oil and gas well stimulation announces its financial results for the second quarter ending February 28, 2014.

Wavefront's business operates in a market where there is increasing demand to bring economically beneficial solutions to exploration and production companies (or "E&P" companies) to maximize oil and gas productivity. Central to Wavefront's broad portfolio of technologies is the fluid delivery process, Powerwave that encompasses the life cycle of a client's post exploration operations.

Wavefront is uniquely positioned to capitalize on significant growth opportunities. The Corporation believes that no competitor has a similar, diverse portfolio of unique fluid injection methodologies and tools. By leveraging Powerwave across multiple oil industry applications including EOR; well stimulation; and, drilling among other applications, Wavefront is seeking to minimize technology risk and accelerate commercialization timelines.

The financial highlights for the three months ended February 28, 2014 include:


--  Total revenues were $1,247,048, an increase of $219,560 over the
    comparative period in 2013 that recognized revenues of $1,027,488.

--  Revenues attributed only to Powerwave product lines were $1,050,466 an
    increase of $300,570 or 40.1% increase over revenues in the comparative
    period of $749,896.

--  Costs of sales for the three month period ended February 28, 2014 were
    $375,036 or 30.1% of revenues compared to $239,512 or 23.3% of revenues
    in the comparative period.

--  For the three months ended February 28, 2014, the gross profit margin(1)
    for Powerwave was 69.9% compared to 76.7% for the comparative period due
    to the heavier weighting on international projects and providing greater
    field incentive compensation to accelerate growth.

--  Other expenses for the three months ended February 28, 2014, amounted to
    $2,064,936 compared to $2,175,357 in 2013 as the Corporation continues
    to focus on operating efficiencies.

--  The basic and diluted net loss for the quarter ended February 28, 2014
    decreased by $227,807 to $1,027,187 ($0.0139 per share), compared to
    $1,364,460 ($0.0164 per share) in 2013.

--  Cash used in operating activities(2) decreased $586,362 to $529,215 from
    the comparative period of $1,115,577. Management believes that over
    time, the funds used in operations should decrease as revenue grows and
    as it focuses expenditures on nearer term revenues. Wavefront continues
    to strive toward sustainability while endeavouring to accelerate revenue
    growth in its core focus marketing regions.

--  Total current assets decreased by $1,442,717 to $12,308,896 from the
    prior year end. Of the net decrease, $1,607,721 relates to a reduction
    of cash resource, of which $1,338,089 was used to fund operations,
    $209,599 was used for the acquisition of additional Powerwave tools and
    equipment, $75,328 relates to the acquisition of intellectual property
    licences and patents, less proceeds on disposition of property, plant
    and equipment of $15,295. Non-current assets included a decrease of
    $364,966 in property, plant and equipment, which is comprised of:
    $579,206 relating to depreciation, $209,599 relating to purchases,
    $9,868 relating to the impact of foreign translation, and $5,227 relates
    to a gain on disposals. Non-current assets also included a decrease of
    $178,447 in intangible assets to $3,769,131, which is comprised of:
    $256,817 relating to amortization, $75,328 relating to purchases and
    $3,042 relating to the impact of foreign currency translation.

The above financial highlights should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and management discussion and analysis of results for Wavefront for the second quarter ended February 28, 2014, which were filed on SEDAR on April 29, 2014.

Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing the gross profit by gross revenue.
