CNEY Released Its Audited Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2023

LISHUI, China, Feb. 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — CN Energy Group. Inc. (NASDAQ: CNEY) today announced its audited financial results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023 (“Fiscal 2023”). CNEY reported revenue of approximately $57.90 million for Fiscal 2023, marking a 44.0 percent increase compared to the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 (“Fiscal 2022”). This increase was mainly due to an increase in the activated carbon sales, with 40,251 tons of activated carbon sold in Fiscal 2023, up by 39.2 percent from the previous year.

Despite the revenue increase, CNEY faced a net loss of approximately $5.6 million, resulting in a loss per share of $0.10 for Fiscal 2023, compared to an earnings per share of $0.10 in Fiscal 2022. The downturn was mainly due to an increase in administrative expenses of CNEY, which increased by 178.1% from approximately $2.06 million in Fiscal 2022 to approximately $5.73 million in Fiscal 2023, with the research and development expenses accounting for approximately $1 million of this increase. In addition, production at CNEY’s factory in Northeast China decreased by 56% in Fiscal 2023 due to challenges in securing enough raw material problems, but CNEY’s fixed expense of depreciation remained at approximately $1 million

During Fiscal 2023, CNEY’s total assets grew by 32.7%, from approximately $94.94 million as of September 30, 2022 to approximately $126.20 million as of September 30, 2023.

In Fiscal 2023, CNEY adjusted its marketing strategy and expanded its sales channels to diversified sub-sectors, including pharmaceuticals, food industries, sewage treatment, and gas treatment for municipal solid waste incineration power plants.

Ms. Xinyang Wang, CNEY’s Chief Executive Officer, commented on the year’s performance: “Although we had a loss in Fiscal 2023, we achieved growth in sales volume and expanded our customer base. Looking ahead to fiscal 2024, we aim to add to our existing customer base and expand into new markets, especially in North America, to implement our internationalization strategy.”
