Indoor Harvest Corp Announces First Quarter Results and Provides Update on Ongoing Operations

May 15, 2015, 09:35 ET from Indoor Harvest Corp

HOUSTON, May 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Indoor Harvest Corp (OTCQB: INQD), through its brand name Indoor Harvest™, is a design build contractor, developer, marketer and direct-seller of commercial grade aeroponic and hydroponic fixtures and supporting systems for use in urban Controlled Environment Agriculture and Building Integrated Agriculture. The Company is pleased to report financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015 and provides an update on ongoing operations.

We are in the process of developing our products and services. Consequently, we have not generated revenues as of the date of this report. We have an accumulated deficit and have incurred operating losses since our inception and expect losses to continue during 2015.

Financial Highlights for the First Quarter 2015:

For the three months ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, we had a net loss of $283,657 and $144,146, respectively. The primary driver behind the increase in the loss was attributable to the increase in expenses as noted below.

For the period ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, we incurred $273,676 and $144,196, respectively, in operating expenses. The increase in our operating expenses is due to increases in costs related to research and development, increased payroll costs, depreciation expense, listing expenses to have our common stock traded on the OTCQB and professional expenses related to being a SEC reporting Company.

Our expenses related to research and development for the period ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014 were $9,242 and $640, respectively. The increase in research and development expenses was due to increased costs developing our vertical farm framing system and improvements to our existing aeroponic designs.

As of March 31, 2015 we had total liabilities of $22,142, while at December 31, 2014, we had total liabilities of $21,245.

Operational Overview:

On March 30, 2015, the Company signed a LOI with the City of Pasadena Texas regarding the development of a vertical farming complex, to include a for-profit commercial operation and a non-profit educational facility. As currently envisioned, the for-profit portion would include a state-of-the-art indoor vertical farm serving local customers with gourmet leafy greens, herbs and micro-greens. The non-profit side would integrate an academic program that would use the vertical farm as a lab for practical studies and some component (to be negotiated) of low-cost or at-cost produce made available to community organizations to be balanced by tax offsets through non-profit status.  As of the date of this Report, we do not yet have a binding agreement concerning this Project.

On April 15, 2015, the Company signed a LOI with PUE 1.0. Under the terms of the letter of intent, it is anticipated that a final agreement will include the following terms:  Indoor Harvest will be responsible for the design of a vertical farming system and its related systems. PUE 1.0 will be responsible for the design of a HVAC system to be used with Indoor Harvest's vertical farming design. Both parties have agreed to share any data during the development stage. PUE 1.0 will retain all rights to its intellectual property and any new intellectual property developed as part of the collaboration. Indoor Harvest will be provided exclusive rights to market and distribute the final design for a period to be determined by way of a memorandum of understanding, to be finalized in connection with the closing of terms outlined in our letter of intent with the City of Pasadena. During the development stage, all equipment to be provided by PUE 1.0 for the purpose of the technology and economic pilot to be constructed at the 112 N Walter property will be provided at cost.

On April 20, 2015, our pilot project with Tweed commenced. On May 1, 2015 we began making adjustments to the equipment based on feedback from Tweed. We expect to have reportable data on the progress of our pilot on, or before June 30, 2015.

Update on Current Operations:

On May 4, 2015, we held our first project meeting with the City of Pasadena on the proposed Community Located Agricultural Research Area, or "CLARA", named in homage to Clara Barton of International Red Cross Fame, who played an instrumental part in saving Pasadena area farmers by introducing strawberry production after the Great Storm of 1900, which devastated the area.

We are currently in ongoing negotiations with various commercial partners and the City regarding the roles of various stake holders. A final memorandum of understanding "MOU" is expected in the near future, which will outline the roles of the parties involved. The MOU will outline the responsible parties, food distribution, consumption policies and educational activities of both the for profit and non-profit portions of the project.

"The City of Pasadena was gratified during our initial partners' meeting by the level of interest and commitment to a project of this nature in Pasadena. We will continue to press forward with the many details necessary to see it through to a successful conclusion," stated Wayne Holt, Publication Manager, City of Pasadena.

The project will include the involvement of the Harris County BUILD Partnership, a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating the conditions that cause food insecurity in North Pasadena by launching a new healthy, accessible, and community-supported local food system at the CLARA campus.

The Company is also currently preparing to begin sales of its vertical farm framing system. We have begun the process of developing our packaging, sales materials and working to establish relationships with distributors. 

Mr. Chad Sykes, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "We're taking the final steps needed to bring some of our products and services to market and based on current inquiries, we are very optimistic that we will begin sales before the end of the second quarter. Current pricing of our LED vertical farm frame sets are expected to come in at a price that will compete well with most popular LED fixtures. By incorporating LEDs into the actual frame design itself, instead of using a separate light fixture and framing system, we will be able to offer a complete vertical farm racking solution for a price that is only slightly more than a standard LED fixture of equivalent wattage."

New Product Development:

In addition to our LED framing design, we have begun the process of re-designing our aeroponic system to take advantage of cheaper manufacturing processes. We anticipate initially offering our aeroponic system as a large scale cloning platform for propagation. We have redesigned the system to work with our existing LED frame set, thereby providing a modular vertical platform for large scale clone production. We anticipate each unit being capable of producing some 600 clones per unit.

"Almost all current cloning systems on the market today utilize a low pressure design. By using our proven high pressure design, we expect to be the first Company to offer a true aeroponic system for commercial cloning at a price that will compete directly with less effective low pressure systems currently on the market. With high pressure aeroponics, we are able to atomize the nutrient solution to a 30-50 micron size, thereby accelerating the rooting of cuttings several days faster than a low pressure design. We anticipate bringing this product to market in the next two to three months thus opening up another potential revenue stream from our existing portfolio of designs," further stated Chad Sykes, CEO.

Consistent with the SEC's April 2013 guidance on using social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter to make corporate disclosures and announce key information in compliance with Regulation FD, Indoor Harvest is alerting investors and other members of the general public that Indoor Harvest will provide weekly updates on operations and progress through its social media on Facebook and Twitter.
