CEMATRIX Corporation Announces $2.1M in Contracts and Increases Total Backlog to $78.5M CDN
CALGARY, Alberta, April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CEMATRIX Corporation (TSXV: CVX) (the “Corporation” or “CEMATRIX”) through its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, CEMATRIX (Canada) Inc. (“CCI”), MixOnSite USA Inc. (“MOS”) and Pacific International Grout Company (“PIGCO’) have been awarded several new infrastructure projects with a total contract value of $2.1M CDN.
Furthermore, as a result of the strengthening U.S. dollar versus the Canadian dollar, the company is increasing its forecasted project value by $2.9M CDN. As a result, the company’s contracted and verbally awarded (mainly contracts in process) projects now total $78.5M (CDN) of which approximately $40.1M is currently scheduled to carry over into 2021/22.“Even though the business of designing, tendering and quoting infrastructure projects has slowed down a bit as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, CEMATRIX still continues to land new projects throughout North America,” stated Jeff Kendrick, CEMATRIX President and CEO. “In addition, in order to help Americans and Canadians revive both economies, strong signals are being sent by different levels of Governments that infrastructure focused spending will be part of future stimulus packages. CEMATRIX is extremely well positioned to benefit from these infrastructure focused initiatives. This opportunity was recently confirmed in part by announcements in the U.S. to move forward on two trillion dollars’ worth of infrastructure replacement projects.”ABOUT CEMATRIX
