Comments on the year ended September 30, 2014
In 2014, significant non-operational charges were incurred. Research and Development Costs of $257,781 for the Percofrac water heating system were reclassified to Cost of Sales, and financing costs of $312,323 one year after the disbursement of the revolving note facility were recognized as expenses. The operations were hard hit by the collapse of oil prices which resulted in decimation of the Company's frac water heating projects.
Accounts receivable were $ 105,424 at year end compared to $729,149 one year earlier. As of September 30, 2014, Sofame had a confirmed order backlog of approximately $167,511 compared to $473,976 at September 30, 2013. The Order Backlog consisted of four contracts in progress in Montreal for a pharmaceutical plant, a hospital expansion project, a dairy plant and a textile plant.
