Progressive Planet Solutions Announces Q1 2023 Results and Improved Gross Margin

Canada NewsWire

KAMLOOPS, BC, Sept. 28, 2022 /CNW/ - Progressive Planet Solutions Inc. (TSXV: PLAN) ("PLAN", "Progressive Planet" or the "Company"), a manufacturer of agricultural, household and industrial products whose pioneering technology turns post-consumer glass into high-performance cement using CO2 sequestration, is pleased to announce the financial results of its consolidated group of companies for the first quarter ending July 31, 2022.

  • Highlights include the following:
  • Revenue of $5,177,709,
  • Gross margin of 27% versus 13% in the prior quarter, and,
  • Net loss for the quarter of $477,494.

When announcing the year-end financial results on August 29, 2022, PLAN disclosed "Immediately upon taking over operations, we were faced with legacy customer relationships that were no longer profitable in the inflationary environment we inherited. Tough decisions were made in the short term to position the Company for better long-term growth (and we appreciate the support of our customers through this transition)."

During the first quarter, PLAN successfully addressed a major unprofitable legacy customer relationship which was one contributing factor to the increase in gross margin. Further details on how management addressed the operations of APL are contained in the MD&A which can be found at

"We are delighted to announce our improved gross margin" stated Steve Harpur, CEO. "We have not relaxed our efforts to improve production efficiencies as we pursue a strategy of increased output per plant operator by building our fertilizer and cement production capacities in a stand alone building at our premises in Kamloops, BC. We are continuing our strategy to convert waste mineral powders into regenerative fertilizers and low-carbon cements as mentioned in our news release on September 22, 2022. We are implementing this strategy by utilizing existing team members and equipment where possible. The first line is expected to be operational and producing regenerative fertilizer powders by October 17, 2022."
