"Due to the challenges experienced by our core customer base, the essential nature of our services, and the resilience of our people; during this past year, we overcame many of the challenges related to the pandemic. We finished 2020 strong, growing total revenue by 39% to approximately $5.9 million. Much of the strength in our equipment sales commenced in the second half of 2020, with fourth quarter sales of $1,661,655 representing a sequential growth of 460% quarter over quarter," said Tony Fuller, Chief Executive Officer. "The positive momentum we saw in the back half of 2020 has continued in the new year. As such, we expect growth of new and existing customers will continue to offset the COVID-related downturn that we continue to experience in certain markets.

"Management will be hosting a conference call on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at 4:30pm ET, to review the financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31,2020, and provide a corporate update. The call has been scheduled at that date and time due to management's travel schedule and availability.

"Last year saw the steady resumption of orders for our Revolution Series digesters under our Carnival Corp purchase agreement. As the year progressed, we saw significant expansion that spanned into multiple brands and new geographies, including orders coming from UK-based Cunard and Italy-based Costa Group. Given the challenges we endured and overcame in 2020, we are encouraged by our overall revenue growth and feel we have laid the foundation for further and continued increases as we move forward.

"We implemented change at our HEBioT plant from the top down including the operations team. In spite of this, we saw revenue growth of 69% totaling over $1.8 million for the year, an accomplishment we celebrate, even as we look towards more growth from our HEBioT business in the coming quarters.

"Our innovation in the development of alternative uses for our solid recovered fuel (SRF) continues to grow and is a key component of our growth strategy. We are currently exploring additional uses for our Solid recovered fuel ("SRF") such as fuel for cogeneration and as a feedstock for bio-plastics. It is with this strategy in mind that we contemplate our future next steps as we continue to grow our renewable fuel business."

"Finally, we believe BioHiTech is poised to execute at scale across each of our target markets and growth initiatives. We are focused on expanding our digester sales into maritime, commercial equipment companies, and government locations, as well as those verticals that have long been part of our customer base, driving strong demand and growth for BioHiTech. We look forward to continuing our growth trajectory and to updating the markets on our continued execution," Mr. Fuller concluded.

Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2020

Total revenue increased by 39.3% ($1,659,205) for the year ended December 31, 2020 due to a $2,081,867 increase in equipment sales that were primarily driven by digester sales to Carnival Cruise Lines and a $767,036 increase in HEBioT revenues offset by a $339,078 decrease in rental, services and maintenance that was impacted by COVID-19 and a $850,620 decrease in management fees and other resulting from the wind-down of the executive services provided to Gold Medal Group.

Total operating expenses before depreciation and amortization increased by 52.1% ($5,222,615), which were driven by $975,420 of a third quarter impairment expense relating to the HEBioT facility and $58,000 of a fourth quarter goodwill impairment expense and a $646,196 settlement related to HEBioT expenses relating to services previously provided by a non-controlling investor, and increase in HEBioT direct costs of $1,507,175 resulting from a full year of operations and high maintenance and repairs, an increase of $910,242 in selling, general and administrative, excluding the $646,196 settlement, ($289,770 from Digester and Corporate and $620,472 from HEBioT) and an increase in equipment sales costs of $1,111,122 related to the increase in equipment sales that also resulted in an increase in the contribution margin from 39% in 2019 to 46% in 2020. Depreciation and amortization increased by $577,555 primarily due to the HEBioT facility operating for a full year in 2020, as compared to 9 months in 2019. The loss from operations increased by 55.0% ($4,140,965) due to a 13.3% increase at Digester and Corporate and a 112.9% increase at the HEBioT facility.

As of December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had unrestricted cash balances of $2,403,859 and $1,847,526, respectively.
