TSX VENTURE: CNO
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, June 5, 2023 – California Nanotechnologies Corp. (“Cal Nano” or the “Company”) is pleased to report unaudited annual revenues of US$1,390,034 for the year ended February 28, 2023. This represented a 29% increase over FY2022 revenues of US$1,081,500.
Furthermore, Cal Nano’s growth strategy continues to make progress, as evidenced by record revenue for the quarter ending May 31, 2023, which is expected to exceed US$500,000.
“I am proud to see our team continue to make progress in our growth strategy while carefully managing our costs. Cal Nano has continued to see ongoing sales traction as we work on new R&D projects while planning out a transition into servicing larger, commercial-scale contracts,” stated Eric Eyerman, CEO of California Nanotechnologies Corp.
Cal Nano has entered a growth phase in which it is actively hiring key personnel, expanding contract scopes, and ensuring it possesses adequate production capacity to service its customers. Earlier this month, the Company acquired a used cryomilling machine that became available at a very attractive price, which will allow the company to triple its existing capacity.
Cryomilling is one of the two core technologies offered by Cal Nano. With the recent purchase of new equipment and existing cryomills, the Company estimates that its milling capacity alone can be increased to approximately US$4.0 million in potential annual revenues, depending on product mix. Cal Nano is currently evaluating the best location for installing the new cryomill and is also exploring options to expand its Spark Plasma Sintering capacity in the coming years.
