- Reports revenue of $10.1 million -
- Improves operating expenses by $1.7 million year-over-year -
- Revises full year 2016 financial guidance -

OXNARD, Calif., Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:CDTI) ("CDTi" or "the Company"), a leader in advanced emission control technology, reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Matthew Beale, CDTi's CEO, stated, "Since late last year we have completed several significant initiatives to enhance our financial foundation, support our growth and accelerate our path to profitability. We streamlined operations, reduced our fixed cost base and in August, we successfully eliminated $8.9 million in debt. With the recently announced $10.3 million equity raise, we have established a strong financial foundation on which to execute on our advanced materials and high-value catalyst business strategy.

"We are pursuing opportunities in fast growing markets in China, India and North America that we believe we can serve profitably with our advanced materials business model. By focusing on technology development and strategic relationships, we have entered initial partnerships that are core to our P2C revenue ramp and positioning CDTi as a leading technology provider to the industry.

"Looking ahead, we will experience a shift in revenue mix as partner volumes ramp during the next 12 to 24 months. In particular, as Technology and Advanced Materials revenue grows, which consists mainly of high-margin P2C business, it will be accretive to gross profit margins. Together with our lower operating expense run rate, we believe we will achieve operating profit breakeven during the first half of 2017."

Financial Highlights: Third Quarter 2016 compared to Third Quarter 2015

Financial Highlights: Nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to 2015

Revised Financial Outlook
Tracy Kern, CDTi's CFO, stated, "We now expect full year 2016 revenue to be at the lower end of our guided range and to be between $37 million and $39 million. We expect DuraFit™ full year revenue contribution will approach $6 million. We also expect gross margin to be between 25% and 27%. Based on these assumptions and cost reductions undertaken in 2015 and 2016, we now expect to be breakeven on an income from continuing operations basis by the first half of 2017."
