Eguana Files Interim 6 Month Financial Statements & Provides Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Eguana Technologies Inc (TSX VENTURE: EGT), ("Eguana" or the Company") a leading supplier of high performance power management for "edge of grid energy storage applications has filed its Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the six month period ending May 31, 2014, along with Management's Discussion and Analysis thereof. The Consolidated Financial Statements and the Management Discussion and Analysis thereof are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.eguanatech.com.

Highlights


1.  Unit demand forecasts in Europe are up sharply beginning in July of this
    year. Firm orders under the Company's Supply Contract with
    Sonnenbatterie GmbH ("Sonnenbatterie") will increase Eguana revenues to
    approximately $1 million per month by mid-summer.

2.  Revenues for Q2 (March 31, 2014) were $396,357, down slightly from Q1,
    due to variability in demand mix which is to be expected in an emerging
    market. Unit volumes are up for the current Quarter, and revenues for Q3
    (June 30, 2014) will be more than double Q2 revenues at an estimated $1
    million.

3.  Eguana's high volume manufacturing line with TQS in Durach, Germany is
    now in production with a capacity to produce 1,000 units per month. This
    capacity is incremental to the 1,000 unit per month production capacity
    at the Calgary plant and is adequate to meet forecast demand for the
    balance of the year. Working capital needed to ramp production to higher
    production levels is minimal.

4.  Eguana continues to record design wins with multiple battery companies
    demonstrating Bi-Direx' value as a "universal" platform to allow next
    generation technologies to access the higher growth "edge of grid"
    storage markets. The design wins are expected to convert to commercial
    revenues from sources in Japan and the US during the second half of this
    year and into 2015.

5.  Under an announced letter of intent with Sonnenbatterie, Eguana will
    move from supplying a power electronics sub-assembly to supplying a
    higher value integrated power management module that will accommodate a
    wide range of battery options. This change will increase revenues and
    margins per unit to Eguana and is targeted to become effective in Q1
    2015 (CY - Q4).

6.  Under the same letter of intent, Sonnenbatterie Eguana will supply power
    management modules to Sonnenbatterie exclusively for the US residential
    market. Sonnenbatterie has already secured first US purchase orders for
    Eguana powered energy storage systems and the Company has visibility on
    revenues from other sources in the US later in this year and into 2015.

Michael Carten, CEO of Eguana commented: "The potential for solar + storage, especially in the distributed or 'edge of grid' market is exceptional. Driven by fundamental change in the cost structure of solar electricity, solar + storage is beginning to offer a competitive cost alternative conventional grid supplied electricity. So significant is this change that Barclay's recently (May 20, 2014) downgraded the entire electric sector of the U.S. high-grade corporate bond market based on what it sees as long-term challenges from solar + storage over the coming decade.

"Eguana's value proposition in this segment of the market is to enable system integrators and suppliers of integrated product solutions to optimize next generation battery technologies in the lower power ratings which are needed to achieve the scalability and redundancy needed by this market at a much lower cost and with much higher efficiencies than conventional inverters.

"Eguana has designed its platform for "universality" so that customers can achieve and maintain cost leadership by easily moving to the optimum battery for the application without changing their basic power management control strategies. Multiple design wins in the past six months are demonstrating that Eguana's technology is raising the power electronics bar for next generation batteries in this market."
