Wavefront Announces Fiscal First Quarter 2013 Results

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc. (Wavefront or the Corporation) (TSX VENTURE:WEE) (OTCQX:WFTSF) a developer of leading-edge technology for fluid injection optimization for improved performance and profitability in the oil and gas and environmental sectors announces its financial results for the first quarter ending November 30, 2012.

Wavefront is a technology company with a reputation among its clients for quality, innovation and creativity. Focused on global markets, Wavefront utilizes its patented technology to provide measureable solutions when exploration and production companies (or "E&P" companies) are faced with the challenges of optimizing oil production, well intervention and performance drilling.

Wavefront's strategic value proposition is underpinned with 20 granted and 29 patents pending based on differentiated fluid flow technology. Marketed under the brand names, "Powerwave" and "Primawave", the injection methodologies improve distribution of liquids in the ground.

Wavefront's business plan for enhancing shareholder value includes:


i.  Licensing of its proprietary technologies and products, underpinned by a
    high margin recurring revenue model. 

ii. Leveraging of its proprietary technologies and products through
    strategic service company alliances, both in the energy and
    environmental sectors. 

With the Company's new marketing initiative entitled "From Bit to Last Drop", our product portfolio now encompasses an and leverages an E&P clients through their entire life cycle post exploration operations.

The financial highlights for the three months ended November 30, 2012 include:


--  Total revenues amounted to $1,529,585, a 37.6% increase or $418,030 over
    the comparative period that reported total revenues of $1,111,555. 

--  Revenues for Powerwave and Primawave approximated $1,172,076 or 78.3% of
    revenues; whereas in the comparative reporting period, Powerwave and
    Primawave approximated $833,224 or 79.7%. 

--  Revenue attributed only to Powerwave product lines were $1,119,070, an
    increase of $352,670 or 46.0% over revenues in the comparative period of
    $766,400. The Powerwave product line revenues can then be broken into
    short-term projects involving well stimulations and performance
    drilling, and long-term, mature field revitalization projects using
    Wavefront's technology to maximize ultimate oil recovery in water or CO2
    flooding applications.  

i.  For the three months ended November 30, 2012, the total revenues
    attributed to long-term, mature field revitalization Powerwave projects
    totalled $759,736. The Corporation also anticipates that as it has
    focused more resources on the more active international markets that
    Powerwave applications in mature field revitalization may grow faster in
    those regions. 

ii. For the three months ended November 30, 2012, the total revenues
    attributed to Powerwave well stimulation totalled $359,334, an increase
    of $317,867 or 766.6%, compared to $41,467 in the comparative period.
    There was a decrease in United States Powerwave stimulation revenues
    that is believed to be tied to client budgets for stimulation work being
    exhausted for the fiscal year; however, there was an offsetting increase
    of Powerwave stimulation revenues in Canada. The Company anticipates
    that the stimulation revenues in the United States may grow in
    subsequent reporting periods as budget restitutions are eased in the new
    calendar year.  

--  For the three months ended November 30, 2012, the gross profit margin(1)
    for Powerwave was relatively stable at 83.4% compared to 84.9% for the
    comparative period. For the three months ended November 30, 2012, the
    gross profit margin for Primawave was also relatively stable at 90.6%
    compared to 93.5% for the comparative period. The high gross profit
    margin is attributable to the Corporation's ability to leverage its
    technology while diversifying its product portfolio to oil well
    stimulations. It is believed that Powerwave performance drilling systems
    may achieve similar gross profit margins. 

--  The basic and diluted net loss for the first quarter ended November 30,
    2012 was $1,005,061 ($0.012 per share), compared to $991,160 ($0.012 per
    share) in 2011. 

--  Total current assets decreased by $1,441,601 to $16,229,066 from the
    prior year end. Of the net decrease, $1,745,032 relates to decreases in
    cash, which is comprised of $568,178 in funds used in operations,
    $598,656 in changes in working capital and $578,198 in investments in
    Powerwave tools and related intangible assets. 

The above financial highlights should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and management discussion and analysis of results for Wavefront for the first quarter ended November 30, 2012, which were filed on SEDAR on January 29, 2013.

Since the official November 2012 roll-out of the Corporation's line of performance drilling tools Wavefront has continued to pilot test the tools in Canada and the United States as part of drilling the horizontal section of wells. With our marketing partners we have now moved into phase II piloting testing and are scheduled to run two, "thru-tubing" applications on coil tubing this week in Pennsylvania. This will be the first such tests of Wavefront's performance drilling tools employed to increase the rate of penetration of the bit (or mill) while drilling out frac plugs and balls in horizontal well completions.

"We are pleased to see continued positive results and increased customer interest in Wavefront's performance drilling tools and have increased the number of tools available for use in Canada and the United States to 20", said Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson. "Wavefront remains on track with initiatives to refocus its marketing strategy and anticipates sales to grow across all focus areas."
