Dallas, TX, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — H/Cell Energy Corporation (OTCQB-HCCC) (“HCCC”), a company that designs and implements clean energy solutions featuring hydrogen and fuel cell technology, has announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, HCCC generated revenue of $1,704,273 and a net loss of $143,638 which includes $111,153 of non-cash charges that do not affect the cash flow performance or working capital of HCCC. This amounts to a $(0.02) per share loss. Comparatively, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018, HCCC generated $1,726,324 and a net loss of $110,969 which included $53,001 of non-cash charges. This also amounted to a $(0.02) per share loss.

Andrew Hidalgo, CEO of HCCC, commented, “The first quarter is typically our slowest quarter of the year however, the subsidiaries were profitable and performed well. Excluding non-cash charges that do not affect the cash flow performance or working capital of HCCC, the company posted a small operational loss for the quarter due to among other corporate expenses, the cost of the year-end audit. The balance of the year projections are strong and we have increased our overall bid list from $27 million in the previous quarter to $33 million this quarter, which indicates that activity is rising. We believe our goal of maintaining consistent operational profitability, exclusive of non-cash charges, is within reach and we also believe that the market for advanced clean energy solutions continues to expand in opportunity due to lower cost and more efficient technology. Lastly, we feel our financial condition remains solid with $328,439 in cash and $3,659,042 in assets as of March 31, 2019. We look forward to delivering improved results in the quarters ahead.”
