DIVERGENT Energy Services Announces the Release of Q2 2020 Financial Results
CALGARY, ALBERTA, Aug. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. (“Divergent”, the "Company", or
“DVG”) (DVG: TSX-V) announces the release of its interim financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. All amounts are in
thousands (000’s) of United States Dollars, unless otherwise noted.
HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE QUARTER
- Revenues of $378 compared to revenues of $1,881 during Q2 2019.
- Net loss of $866 compared to a net loss of $535 during Q2 2019.
- The Company accessed $253 of government assistance to funds payroll, rent and other qualifying expenses in its US operations.
- Issued 38,198,096 commons shares of the Company during the quarter to settle interest obligations on debentures for the period April 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
Natural gas markets have shown signs of improvement and the Company is expecting pump sales to continue in the immediate term with some modest growth should the gas prices translate into increased customer budgets. The downturn in the oil markets that resulted from first quarter OPEC actions and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is expected to take significantly longer to recover than the gas markets, and it will take an unknown period of time to return to the level of work experienced in the second half of 2019.
