For Immediate Release
Vancouver, B.C. – May 21, 2021 – Oceanic Wind Energy Inc. (TSX-V: NKW) (“Oceanic” or “Company”) today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. This is the second full fiscal quarter following the completion of the sale of the Offshore Wind Farm located in Hecate Strait (the “Project”) to Northland Power Inc. (TSX: NPI) (“Northland”). Effective September 1, 2020, the closing date of the transaction, Northland is responsible for all aspects of the Project’s developments. The terms of the transaction can be found on SEDAR or the Company’s website www.oceanicwind.ca. Oceanic holds a minority interest in the limited partnership that is developing the project and continues to offer support to Northland. The Company has implemented planned reductions in the operating costs of the Company in line with its new role.
For the three months ended March 31, 2021, Oceanic Wind incurred a net loss of $24,922 ($0.00 per share), compared to $219,476 (0.00 per share) for the three months ended March 31, 2021. As at March 31, 2021, Oceanic Wind had $56,614 in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $51,820 at the end of September 30, 2020. These numbers are consistent with the Company’s planned operations.
The wind project is the only project of significant utility scale in the region and with the remarkable advances in offshore wind development, the project is both affordable and competitive to help meet the long-term electricity needs of British Columbia. With Northland as the developer, the need for renewable energy to power BC’s future, and the strong support from the federal government to reduce GHG to support Climate Change commitments, Oceanic remains optimistic the project will be developed in the near future.
