EnWave’s Strong Performance in 2016 Provides Platform for Continued Growth post image

EnWave Corporation (TSXV:ENW – $1.18 CAD & OTC:NWVCF – $0.88 USD) offers industrial-scale dehydration technology for commercial applications in the food and pharmaceutical spaces.

EnWave Corp’s (TSXV:ENW – $1.13 CAD & OTC:NWVCF – $0.85 USD) fiscal year 2016, which ended September 30, 2016, was extraordinary on all fronts. The Company reported revenues of $14.9 million for the year, compared to $5.9 million in the prior year, up more than 150%. And net loss from continued operations was reduced from $5.0 million last year to $1.8 million in 2016. In its second and third quarter EnWave even achieved a positive net income.

These outstanding numbers can be attributed to the continued growth in sales of royalty-bearing Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV) machines, and the accelerated distribution of Moon Cheese through EnWave’s 51% owned subsidiary, NutraDried LLP.
