Input Capital Corp. Monthly Update - February 2014


REGINA, March 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Input Capital Corp. ("Input") (TSX Venture Exchange: INP) is releasing its monthly update for February 2014 summarizing canola deliveries and the acquisition of new multi-year canola streams.

Input sold 1,403 metric tonnes (MT) of canola in February, the highest monthly total since November 2013. This remains a slower pace than expected as a result of extreme delays in the grain handling and transportation system.

"We are happy to see canola deliveries and sales picking up, but the overloaded rail lines in western Canada continue cause delivery delays," said President and CEO Doug Emsley. "The positive news for Input is that we have delivery slots and we have locked-in prices for those deliveries; it's just a matter of timing. We have been and will continue to be diligent in working with the grain handling companies to ensure an appropriate schedule for our remaining deliveries. Our average realized price is well in excess of the current spot market and we expect to retain that price advantage over the remainder of our deliveries."

Input expects to receive 18,297 base tonnes of canola from the 2013 growing season.

For the current fiscal year year-to-date:

    Base Tonnes Sold

New Canola Streams

Input did not enter into new Streaming Contracts during February.

Gord Nystuen, Vice-President of Market Development added, "We are hearing good things at the kitchen table; our potential farmer partners like what we're offering, but some deals take longer than others. We are pleased with our existing pipeline of potential streaming deals and will continue to diligently invest our capital into the right farms and with the right partners."

As streaming contracts are finalized, they will be summarized in these monthly updates.
