MARKHAM, ON, Aug. 18, 2022 /CNW/ - Pond Technologies Holdings Inc. (the "Corporation" or "Pond") (TSXV: POND) (OTCQB: PNDHF) (FSE: 4O0), announces that the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Corporation for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and the related management's discussion and analysis have been filed and are available for review on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com or on the Corporation's website at www.pondtech.com. Q2 Highlights and a brief business update follow below:

Q2 2022 MD&A Highlights

  1. Innovative Cattle Methane Reduction Study Initiated - Pond's work with BioCarbN in collaboration with Livalta/AB Agri to identify methane reducing algae feed solutions in cattle continues to progress. Pond has identified strains of algae that could prove beneficial in reducing enteric methane emissions from cattle when included into animal feed. Enteric methane emissions are the single largest source of direct greenhouse gas emissions in beef and dairy value chains and a substantial contributor to anthropogenic methane emissions globally. This work led to the signing of a research agreement with BioCarbN, in collaboration with AB Agri, for possible use by a major North American based agriculture company.

  2. Joint Commercialization Project Livalta/AB Agri- The joint commercialization project to produce algae-based animal feed ingredients with Livalta/AB Agri continued to progress. This global partnership with the protein specialists Livalta/AB Agri and Pond will produce commercial algae-based animal feed ingredients from CO2 emissions. Effectively, the technology is designed to take CO2 emissions to produce high value protein. Since the start of the agreement, Pond has received approximately $1,572,000 for initialization and advanced milestone payments and has completed initial engineering work. The advance milestone payments are recorded as deferred contract revenue and moves to revenue when milestones are met.  A further approximately $4,000,000 in license and engineering, procurement and construction payments remain to be earned by Pond.

  3. Successful Production of Recombinant Proteins - Pond Biotech's successful results related to the production of recombinant proteins were published in the scientific journal, Nature Scientific Reports. This provided an update on the Pond Biotech project announced in the fall of 2021 with a major Fortune 500 oil and gas company. As part of the project, Pond has been scaling up the production of recombinant proteins. Pond has received approximately $230,000 in payments to date for milestones achieved and the initial research agreement. Pond has now completed the initial scale-up, including bioreactor designs and growth protocols. Since the beginning of 2022, Pond has been making weekly deliveries of recombinant proteins to the project consortium for testing and significant milestones are expected to be achieved in Q3 2022.
