Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) (“the Company” or “Carmanah”) today announces that in its second quarter financial statements, the Company will reinstate a tax asset totaling approximately $11.0 million US dollars. The asset was previously deemed to be impaired and was written off by the Company on February 7, 2012 on the determination, at that time, that the Company had less than reasonable certainty of realizing its value. The decision to reinstate is based upon the financial performance of the Company over the past six quarters and management’s outlook for future periods which lead to the conclusion it’s probable these tax assets will be utilized. The tax asset includes both investment tax credits and deferred income taxes, both of which will allow the Company to reduce taxes on current and future earnings realized within Canada.
To record the tax asset the Company will realize non-cash, non-recurring income of approximately $11.0 million as at June 30, 2015. Full financial statement disclosure are expected on or about August 10, 2015 after which the company will hold an analyst conference call. Details respecting the analyst call will be released approximately one week prior to the call.
