CALGARY, July 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") (TSXV:
RLE, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE: RL7) a water treatment and energy technology company, today addresses
specific questions resulting from the investor conference call on July
25, 2013 and the March 31, 2013 consolidated financial statements filed
last week on SEDAR.
Dennis M. Danzik, Chief Executive Officer of Ridgeline Energy Services,
stated, "Last week culminated with announcements and discussions
surrounding the cleanup and sale of less productive divisions operated
by our Company. These included the environmental and soil remediation
operations, primarily located in Alberta Canada. Last week after our
fourth quarter and fiscal year end 2013 earnings release conference
call with our investors, the Company received several calls that
management determined should be further clarified in the broadest
manner possible, so I have chosen to launch this detailed release to
give some pinpoint clarity as to specific questions regarding the
Company's financial condition."
The following is a summary to our most Received Questions:
1. Given the sale of the Company's Environment and Greenfill divisions, is
Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. going to become a private company and
no longer trade on the Toronto Venture Exchange?
No. Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. which is a publicly traded Canadian
company will take on a name change to RDX Technologies Corporation
within the next several days after the proper paperwork is filed with
the stock exchange. All common shares currently held by shareholders of
the Company, traded under "RLE" on the Venture Exchange, "RDGEF" on the
OTCQX, and "RL7" on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, remain in place and
2. Is Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. "RLE" currently in a poor liquidity
No. RLE cash position has greatly improved since March 31st of this year, due to strict cash management programs and the sale of
underperforming assets. As of today our cash balance is in excess of $
3,000,000. This is up from the approximately $ 1,300,000. as stated in
our year end financials.
3. Will Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. be raising capital through an
No. Our Company is in a strong position to demonstrate our ability to earn
profits through our waste water treatment operations in Santa Fe
Springs California and in Carthage Missouri. The Company currently has
no plans through our second or third financial quarters to consider any
capital raise through the use of our equity.
4. Why will Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. not need to raise capital from
an equity raise during fiscal 2014?
Simple, we will not be spending on any new capital equipment projects. Our
primary water treatment facilities in California and in Missouri are
fully operational and cash flow positive. Our mission now is to focus
on spending reductions, especially at the SG&A level with a goal of
spending less than $ 350,000 per month while refining our net profit
from these two great facilities.
5. With the Company's current plans, Will Ridgeline continue to grow?
Yes. But we will grow as a Company from our two primary facilities through
the end of this fiscal year. Each of our properties in California and
Missouri has the ability to produce tens of millions of dollars in
revenue per property. The revenue potential at these properties allows
for enough growth for this fiscal year.
6. Ridgeline Energy Services, Inc. has over $ 12,000,000 in "Trade
No. The Company did not have over $12,000,000 in "trade payables" as of
March 31, 2013 but rather had over $12,000,000 in "trade and other payables" as of March 31, 2013 which included deferred revenue, non-cash
accruals, payables related to the divisions being sold, and other
liabilities. The trade and other payables as of March 31, 2013 included
Trade and other Payables (to date)
Payables anticipated to be transferred
upon the sale of the Environment and Greenfill divisions
Santa Fe Springs non-recurring acquisition related costs
Deferred revenue and other non-cash accruals
(i.e. straight line rent)
Mr. Danzik continued, "As a publicly traded company, full disclosure is
of the utmost importance. Year end financials are many times cryptic to
the untrained, and in many instances highly trained people need further
clarity. As well, our financial year end is now four months behind us.
Doubling revenues year over year for any company is challenging, and we
are now set for our largest revenue growth year."
"As I have stated, our mission is Water, and the benefit that brings our
customers and shareholders. Over the coming months, and through this
fiscal year, you will see our Company highly focused on our current
operations and shareholder value."
