BioLargo (BLGO) Discusses Elimination of Convertible Debt and Progress on Commercialization of PFAS Treatment Technology with The Stock Day Podcast
Phoenix, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - May 27, 2021) - The Stock Day Podcast welcomed BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO), a company that invents, develops, and commercializes innovative platform technologies to solve challenging environmental problems like PFAS contamination, advanced water and wastewater treatment, industrial odor and VOC control, air quality control, and infection control. President and CEO of BioLargo, Dennis P. Calvert, joined Stock Day host Everett Jolly for an interview.
Jolly began the interview by commenting on the company's latest announcements, including a recent press release detailing the elimination of almost all of the company's convertible debt. "We took quite a bit of risk [three years ago]; we needed that capital and we have put it to great work. We have advanced two platform technologies that are now at a commercial-ready stage, they're dramatic and they have a big future," said Calvert. "The opportunities that are coming to us are so big and so expansive, and it's really a tribute to our great technology and to our people."
"We really needed to get that convertible debt out of the way," continued Calvert, noting that the company's debt peaked at $7.6 million in 2018. "Since then, we have retired all [but $50,000] of this convertible debt, which has been continuing to put pressure on the stock. So, it's a great moment."
Jolly then commented on the company's recent revenues and growth. "I think we're just scratching the surface," said Calvert. "We have put a couple of really key relationships together. We have new technologies coming into our portfolio. We are incredibly active and dynamic in developing commercial and revenue opportunities of significance."
"Could you give us an update on the company's PFAS project?" asked Jolly. "It's a very exciting opportunity," said Calvert. "There is a mandate by the Biden Administration to get this cleaned up. The beauty of this situation is that we got a little bit of a head start before it crescendoed in the market, which means we have the talent and the technical solution advanced sufficiently to be in commercial mode now."
"We would like to be in the field within the next 60-120 days. [PFAS] is a contaminant that has to come out; it is the environmental disaster of the decade," he explained. "We just think this is such an enormous opportunity. We're going to take it from start to finish and prove that it is a commercially viable, economic, and environmentally-friendly solution. Then we're going to partner with companies and take it all over the world."
Calvert then elaborated on the potential customers for this industry, which will likely include the military, municipal, and industrial clients. "Who serves those people? There are really two classes: environmental engineering firms and specialty large companies dedicated to water," explained Calvert. "Both of those are really distributor and partner opportunities for us."
"What is the outlook for your company over the next twelve months?" asked Jolly. "The hardest work is done," said Calvert. "We have never been more excited than today... we have some financing that really provides the resources to get us through this commercial gap," he continued. "I think this is a time where investor enthusiasm is at an all-time high and it will continue. So, we're a company to watch."
"You need to watch carefully, because the evolution of this company is so dynamic that if you're not looking every six months you will only know about half the story," said Calvert. "The hard work is done, the prize is in front of us, let's go do the work and get it done."
