About Carbon Streaming
Carbon Streaming is an ESG principled company offering investors exposure to carbon credits, a key instrument used by both governments and corporations to achieve their carbon neutral and net-zero climate goals. Our business model is focused on acquiring, managing and growing a high-quality and diversified portfolio of investments in projects and/or companies that generate or are actively involved, directly or indirectly, with voluntary and/or compliance carbon credits.
The Company invests capital through carbon credit streaming arrangements with project developers and owners to accelerate the creation of carbon offset projects by bringing capital to projects that might not otherwise be developed. Many of these projects have social and economic co-benefits in addition to their carbon reduction or removal potential.

This news release contains the financial term “adjusted net loss”, which is not considered in the International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The Company's determination of this non-IFRS measure may differ from other reporting issuers, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies where similar terminology is used.
A reconciliation of “net loss” to “adjusted net loss” can be found in the Company’s MD&A for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2022 (the “MD&A”) in the “Non-IFRS Measures” section and such information is incorporated by reference herein. The MD&A is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www.carbonstreaming.com.
This non-IFRS measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance or cash flows as prepared in accordance with IFRS. This financial measure is included because management believes that this non-IFRS measure, together with measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, provides useful information to investors and shareholders in assessing the Company’s liquidity and overall performance as it removes the impact of non-cash charges. Refer to the "Non-IFRS Measures" section on page 17 of the MD&A for further details.
