Flemington, NJ, November 8, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — H/Cell Energy Corporation (OTCQB-HCCC) (“HCCC”), a company that designs and implements clean energy solutions featuring hydrogen energy systems, has announced financial results for its fiscal 2018 third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, HCCC generated revenue of $1,839,491 and a net loss of $267,328, or ($0.04) in earnings per share fully diluted, which includes $69,199 in non-cash charges. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, HCCC generated revenue of $5,575,640 and a net loss of $364,342, or ($0.05) in earnings per share fully diluted, which includes $200,848 in non-cash charges. As of September 30, 2018, HCCC has submitted overall proposals in the amount of $12,751,061 and had a backlog of projects to complete totaling $715,595. The balance sheet as of September 30, 2018 remained solid with $331,236 in cash, $3,548,607 in assets and $417,338 in working capital.

Andrew Hidalgo, CEO of HCCC, commented, “In the third quarter, we committed to investing in the expansion of the renewable energy effort at our Pride Group subsidiary in Australia, which resulted in significant capital expenditures in labor, training and business development. We believe this investment will be the key to launching our renewable energy efforts in the Asia-Pacific region as we are currently quoting many projects in a very active market. Further, our PVBJ subsidiary had a higher level of material purchases in the third quarter for projects to be completed in the fourth quarter. In addition to the capital expenditures for growth initiatives, we absorbed non-cash charges in the third quarter and the year-to-date financials for compliance purposes. Non-cash charges do not affect the cash flow performance or working capital of HCCC. Our subsidiaries are performing well exclusive of these corporate expenses. We have recently initiated several hydrogen energy projects and combined with our continued investments in expanding the renewable energy market effort, we are very encouraged about the future quarters. HCCC continues to build momentum by training our existing subsidiaries in clean energy, identifying many new opportunities and expanding our customer base. We look forward to future growth and building shareholder value.”
