Furthermore, the Company has Sales Order Backlog3 of $0.56M, which represents a 62% decrease from previous disclosure on November 15th, 2021.

This increase in loss YE 2021 compared to YTD 2020 is largely driven by a gain on settlement of debt and revaluation of warrants on debt settlement reported in YE 2020 which improved the loss by $0.41M.                                                                           
  • The Company has $3.35M of working capital as of December 31, 2021. Management anticipates it has sufficient working capital to maintain its activities for the subsequent 12 months. 

“While we have delivered outstanding performance this past year, our new targets indicate we have many more opportunities to increase revenue as more people become aware of the economic and environmental benefits of turning wastewater into energy. We are continuing to dynamically manage our business while remaining focused on executing against our business strategy to drive long-term profitable growth,” says says Lynn Mueller, Chief Executive Officer of SHARC Energy. “We have a promising future ahead as we take Sharc Energy’s performance to the next level and drive significant shareholder value.”
