"I am pleased and encouraged at the pace in which we are moving towards commercialization," said Jim Deller Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of ClearSign.  "The feedback that we are receiving from channel partner visits has been very positive and we were pleased to announce our first collaborative supply agreement with ASHCOR LLC in June.  We will continue to execute our commercialization strategy and keep optimizing our technology and resources to support our anticipated transition to commercial operations. I believe we are beginning to see the foundations for a change in trajectory."

Recent strategic and operational highlights during and subsequent to the second quarter of 2019 include:

  • Rolled out strategic plan for commercialization of ClearSign Technology: The strategy is comprised of optimizing the technology, focusing on the launch of select high priority products and pursuing collaborative channel partners to deliver ClearSign's technology to customers. Integral to this, the Company branded and designated its technologies "ClearSign Core" for established equipment supplier products. During, and after the quarter, the Company met with, and demonstrated its suite of technologies to, multiple channel partners and customers of boiler burners, process heater burners and flare technology.
  • Entered into a collaborative agreement with ASHCOR LLC with the goal of developing and growing the Company's business in the flare/incinerator vertical: This agreement combines ClearSign's technology and ASHCOR's expert flare knowledge, business infrastructure and manufacturing capabilities. The agreement covers both forced air flares and vapor combustor systems as well as natural draft flares.
  • Signed a new, updated and expanded Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a heating district in Beijing, China: This MOU supplements the previously announced agreement from May of 2017, and expands the scope of the collaborative project. This project, with one of China's largest providers of residential and commercial heating services, will run pilot tests with the goal of demonstrating ClearSign's combustion technology as a candidate to achieve ultra-low emissions levels in both firetube and watertube boilers.
  • Received an additional contract from a major California oil producer to retrofit another enclosed wellhead ground flare with its ClearSign Core™ technology: The project marks the seventh installation of ClearSign technology in the enclosed low emission ground flare and vapor combustor market.

Loss for the second quarter 2019 was $2.4 million compared to a loss of $2.4 million for the same period of 2018. 

Cash and investment resources were about $11.6 million as of June 30, 2019. 

Shares outstanding at June 30, 2019 total 26,702,261.
