“Q1 was a breakout quarter,” said Scott Tillman, Chief Executive Officer of Minerva. “We beat our internal goals, landed substantial new contracts within our Climate Risk department, and completed all beta testing of our geology products while receiving validation of the strength of our offering from happy customers. Our Economic Geology division is garnering the attention of mining companies as we address a major challenge within the mining industry, with exploration costs continuing to rise while discovery rates continue to decrease. Incorporating Minerva’s artificial intelligence into exploration processes, standardizing data, and providing precision mapping have proven to play a critical role in identifying drilling targets and managing exploration risk.”

Mr. Tillman continued, “Our Climate Risk division is displaying strong growth as well, as we continue to service the Canadian Government to help them understand where risks lie when it comes to environmental disasters such as landslides and flooding and determine the standards underlying this information. Our numbers this quarter reflect this growing demand and the success we are having with these groups. We are confident that we have just only scratched the surface of what we are able to accomplish over the coming quarters and years. Furthermore, as ESG standards continue to become a critical component of reporting requirements for corporate issuers, we believe our technology can be applied in this vertical and we are on the right path to become one of the leading technology providers able to deliver proper standards for this reporting framework.”

“As we continue to execute on our initial commercialization strategy, we expect continued strong revenue growth on a year-over-year basis for the foreseeable future that will result in a record performance this year, which bodes well for the future as adoption continues to grow.” Mr. Tillman concluded.
