"Utilizing the cash flow from our improved manufacturing operations continues to allow us to invest heavily in a pioneering portfolio of blue sky products that de-carbonize concrete production and restore health to our soil," said Ian Grant, PLAN's COO. "The pace of adoption has been rapid, with gross R&D spending increasing by $126,000 versus Q1. In addition, we invested $345,000 in new equipment compared to $183,000 in the previous quarter, all with the goal of producing new products with low carbon footprints and high gross margins."

"October's quarter results reflect our focus on improving cash flow and profitability of legacy operations to enable us to develop innovative new products," said Stephen Harpur, PLAN's CEO. "We head into Q3 and Q4 with a commitment to fund growth from cash flow and we anticipate introducing multiple new products in the next six months, now that both our cement lab and our AgTech lab are fully equipped and functioning."

As described further in the Management's Discussion & Analysis, PLAN elected to discontinue earning an interest in the Z2 Zeolite Property as the Company focuses on disruptive innovation and commercialization of fully permitted properties and blue sky products in its portfolio. Additionally, PLAN has accelerated exploration on the Heffley Creek Metals and Pozzolan Property, incurring $275,000 in exploration ahead of schedule with less than $60,000 remaining to earn a 100% interest in this property.
