Sustained focus executing on investment pipeline, revenue and U.S. listing strategy
TORONTO, ON, January 18, 2022, Carbon Streaming Corporation (NEO: NETZ) (OTCQB: OFSTF) (FSE: M2Q) (“Carbon Streaming” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide its 2022 strategic objectives, including acquiring additional carbon credit stream and royalty investments, revenue from the sale of carbon credits, and executing on its U.S. listing strategy. Values in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.
Reflecting on the first calendar year of formal operations and the Company’s outlook for 2022, Justin Cochrane, CEO stated: “If last year was about laying the foundations for success – raising significant capital, listing on the NEO Exchange, announcing our first three flagship carbon streaming investments and expanding our investment and management team – 2022 is the year in which we accelerate the growth of our business.”
Mr. Cochrane continued, “Growth was slower than expected in 2021 because of due diligence delays related to Covid and changes to carbon baseline methodologies for specific pipeline opportunities. Moving into 2022, we anticipate the delivery of approximately 7.0 million carbon credits from our existing stream investments, announcing new carbon project investments around the globe and deepening relationships with our growing community of carbon project developers. We will continue to invest in building the best team in the carbon markets industry and progressing our plans for a proposed U.S. Listing.”
2022 Strategic Plans and Guidance
- Carbon Streaming expects to receive the first annual delivery of carbon credits from its streaming investments in Rimba Raya and Cerrado Biome.
|Low End||High End|
|2022E Carbon Credit Volumes (1)||Credits||6,400,000||7,400,000|
|2022E Attributable Carbon Credit Volumes (2)||Credits||5,000,000||5,600,000|
|2022E Delivery Payment (3)||% Sale Price||75%||85%|
(1) Carbon Credit volumes are estimated based on forecasts provided by project developers and historical credit generation by the project. Actual results may vary. For the Rimba Raya project, volumes reflect receiving 2 annual verification cycles of credits; for the Cerrado Biome project, volumes reflect receiving 4 annual verification cycles of credits.
(2) Attributable volumes are composed of credits attributable to the Company, which is calculated based on the carbon credits estimated to be verified by the registry, less (i) credits committed to previous buyers and (ii) credits that are subject to stream participation rights.
(3) Delivery payment to project developers is subject to fluctuation based on the net realized price obtained on the sale of carbon credits and the terms of the carbon credit stream agreement.
- Focus on acquiring additional stream and royalty investments to grow its portfolio. The Company has a pipeline of potential opportunities of $200 million near term (defined by management as less than 12 months), out of a total pipeline of $700 million, with plans to invest in new carbon projects as the Company focuses on growing and diversifying its high-quality portfolio of carbon credit streams and investments.
- The Company continues to advance its U.S. listing strategy, with a potential listing on a major U.S. stock exchange, targeted within the first half of this new year.
