TORONTO, May 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Water Ways Technologies Inc. (TSXV: WWT) (FRA: WWT) ("Water Ways" or the "Company"), a global provider of Israeli-based agriculture technology, providing water irrigation solutions to agricultural producers, announces the filing of its Interim Financial Statements (the "Statements") and Managements Discussion and Analysis (the "MD&A") for the three months period ended March 31, 2022. A comprehensive discussion of Water Ways’ financial position and results of operations is provided in the MD&A, filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com)

Ohad Haber, President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Water Ways states: "The first quarter of 2022 was a challenging quarter for Water Ways Technologies. We started the year with a record backlog of orders exceeding CAD$13M, however, the war in the Ukraine and the lockdown in China delayed some of our business. I am very pleased with our Canadian business achieving record quarterly sales and I anticipate finalizing our important acquisition in Chile in the coming weeks".

On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at 9 am Eastern Time, Water Ways' management including CEO, Mr. Ohad Haber, CFO, Mr. Dor Sneh and Mr. Ronnie Jaegermann, Director, will host a live webinar with a corporate update, earnings discussion and outlook for 2022 and beyond. An Investor question-and-answer session will follow.

Register: Water Ways Technologies Inc. - Q1 2022 Earnings Call and Financial Statements

Highlights – First Quarter (the following information should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified by, the Statements and the MD&A)

  • Sales for the three months period ended March 31, 2022, totaling CAD$4.6M compared to CAD$5.4M for the three months period ended March 31, 2021. decrease in sales was mainly due to a delay in the commencement of the Uzbekistan projects and the Lockdown in China.

  • Company's product sales to South and Central America increased significantly to CAD$1.5M for the three month period ended March 31, 2022 compared to CAD$0.46M for the three month period ended March 31, 2021.

  • Net profit for the three months period ended March 31, 2022 amounted to CAD$0.56M compared with CAD$0.22 for the three months period ended March 31, 2021.

  • Record sales of Heartnut Grove WWT Inc., the Company’s wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, increased substantially and reached CAD$2.62M for the three months period ended March 31, 2022, compared to CAD$1.68M for three months period ended March 31, 2021.

  • Working capital remains flat as of March 31, 2022 totaled CAD$4.5M compared to CAD$4.5M as of December 31, 2021.

  • The Company signed a Letter of Intent to acquire a Chilean irrigation company. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has completed its Due Diligence and currently negotiating final terms of the agreement.

  • During the three months period ended March 31, 2022, the Company received the largest contracts in its history in Uzbekistan, resulting in orders of over CAD$9.4M. The war in Ukraine impacts the Company and causes delays in 2022 projects in Uzbekistan and other regional territories which conduct business with Russia. The unstable events in the region had forced the Company to be conservative and not recognize revenue from Uzbekistan projects (including the projects announced on press releases dated January 31, 2022 and February 10, 2022) during the three months period ended March 31,2022.

  • IAT Shanghai, the Company's Chinese subsidiary, did not contribute to the revenues as a result of the zero-COVID policy of the Chinese government and the frequent quarantines which delays the Company's ability to finalize existing projects and negotiating new projects.

  • Derivative Liability – Warrants relates to a classification under IFRS of outstanding warrants issued as part of the Private Placement as a non-cash liability that arises due to the difference in operational currency and functional currency. This liability is revalued each period by an independent third party.
