Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) ("the Company" or "Carmanah") reported its second quarter financial results for six and three months ended June 30, 2014.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded revenues of $9.0 million, net income of $0.4 million and positive EBITDA of $0.8 million. This is an increase from the same period in 2013 which had revenues of $6.3 million, a net loss of $2.5 million and an EBITDA loss of $2.2 million.

"We are very pleased with our second quarter results during which revenues grew 42.3% compared to the comparable period in 2013," stated John Simmons, CEO. "More importantly, the Company achieved a very significant improvement in profitability in the second quarter during which positive EBITDA of $0.8 million replaced an EBITDA loss of $2.2 million in the comparable period in 2013."

Mr. Simmons also commented on the balance of fiscal 2014, "We expect two circumstances to affect revenue and profitability in the near term," said Mr. Simmons. "Our Carmanah order backlog has continued to grow which, when combined with expected revenues from Sol, Inc., will result in substantial revenue growth in the third quarter. At the same time costs relating to the acquisition of Sol will negatively impact profitability during this period. We expect these costs to be temporary and to cease once the transition and integration is complete."
