VANCOUVER, BC, May 30, 2022 — Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE:CRL, FSE:7C5, OTC:CDTAF) (“Carl Data Solutions” or the “Company”), a leader in AI-driven predictive analytics for industrial and Smart City infrastructure applications that rely on time-series data, today released financial and operational highlights for its quarter ended March 31, 2022. Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2022 and Management’s Discussion & Analysis have been filed at www.sedar.com.
Management commentary and forward-looking statements
“With the announcement of our Q3 – 2022 results, our latest quarter shows positive revenue momentum respectively of 24% and 18% over the past two most recent quarters. This occurred prior to the launch of the first of our new generation of AI-enabled predictive analytics software products for managing critical infrastructure,” said Carl Data Solutions’ CEO Jean Charles Phaneuf.
“On January 25 we announced the largest sale in our history. It is a two-year contract renewable on a recurring annual basis with the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts, a California agency that services 5.6 million people. Covering approximately 850 square miles and encompassing 78 cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles County, the agency operates and maintains a regional wastewater collection system which includes approximately 1,400 miles of sewers, 48 pumping plants and 11 wastewater treatment plants,” he said.
Collectively, the Sanitation Districts treat about 400 million gallons of water per day, which is enough to fill the famous California Rose Bowl stadium nearly five times each day. Over the last 50 years, the Los Angeles Sanitation Districts have been the USA’s largest producer of recycled water – a worthy accomplishment given the impacts of climate change on southern California’s watersheds.
“On April 1, we secured our second-largest recurring sale ever to another large American Smart City through a partner with a national footprint in infrastructure projects,” stated Phaneuf.
“It is also worth noting that Carl Data Solutions’ expenses for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2022 declined by 30% from the same time period in fiscal year 2021,” said Phaneuf. “We continue to monitor expenses closely to ensure we can capitalize on new product development.”
“On May 4,” continued Phaneuf, “we announced the general availability of Auto I&I. Auto I&I was successfully Beta-tested with Carl Data Solutions’ multi-national infrastructure engineering partner AECOM and is now used by York Region for its long-term flow monitoring program. This is one of the largest and most advanced flow and rainfall monitoring programs in North America. In the coming months we will continue to announce new products that further enhance growth opportunities.”
“Our strategic partnership agreement with Montreal-based K2 Geospatial (“K2”), the makers of the JMap spatial analysis mapping integration platform, is another bellwether for future growth,” said Phaneuf. “K2’s customer base includes 500 organizations, including more than 350 cities and municipalities, seaports, airports, road authorities and utilities across North America and Europe. Joint presentations and webinars to K2’s customers over this past quarter have yielded a number of high-potential sales opportunities that we are actively pursuing.”
