FSI Announce 2014 First Quarter Results

May 30, 2014

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2014) - Richard Ball, Chief Executive Officer of FSI Energy Group Inc. ("FSI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FSI), is pleased to announce financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Financial Highlights: Three months ended March 31: 2014 2013 ------------------------------ Cash flow used in operating activities (94,058) (3,034,644) Revenue 469,586 2,949,922 Comprehensive income (loss) (137,197) 46,840 EBITDA(1) (137,363) 121,721 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Total revenue for the first quarter was $469,586 down 84% from the same quarter last year. The decrease reflected FSI's focus on contract negotiation on a major brine plant for the Russian market, and as a result no revenue was generated from the foreign segment for this period of pre-contract activity. First quarter last year included foreign segment revenue of $2,585,211 with the delivery of a major brine plant to its first client in Kazakhstan. Revenue from the domestic segment of $469,586 was up 29% from the same quarter last year; however with the absence of brine plant activity experienced last year, the comprehensive loss for the quarter was $137,197 compared to comprehensive income of $46,840 the same quarter last year.

Although the low activity generated a loss for the quarter, the Company anticipates that its efforts on current contract negotiations will produce significant future brine plant revenues and the Company's liquidity remains firm as:

-- Current assets of $1.2 million, is more than sufficient to service the Company's short term monetary liabilities of $0.8 million (excluding loan from bank which is payable only upon demand). -- The Company is in compliance with its financial covenants and has $0.5 million of unused loan facilities to fund future operations
