H/Cell Energy Reports FY2017 First Quarter Results

FLEMINGTON, N.J., May 22, 2017 (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 the first fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017.

In the first quarter, HCCC reported revenue of $1,866,845 and a net loss of $56,124 or $0.01 per diluted share, which includes the retrospective application of common control financials.

Andrew Hidalgo, CEO of HCCC, commented, "As we are in our early stages of growth, HCCC is pleased to report record revenue growth. HCCC would have posted a positive net income had it not been for certain accounting pronouncements, which required HCCC to consolidate financials along with The Pride Group for the same reporting period, since The Pride Group was a common control acquisition. Although the acquisition of The Pride Group was concluded on January 31, 2017, HCCC had to account for their entire financial month of January 2017, even though HCCC did not own The Pride Group during that time. We see a very positive outlook ahead. At March 31, 2017, our bid list was approximately $6.5 million and our work in progress backlog was approximately $1.6 million. HCCC will continue to focus on organic growth as well as identifying strategic acquisitions in the months ahead.”
