Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - April 17, 2024) - Titan Logix Corp., (TSXV: TLA) ("Titan" or the "Company"), a technology company specializing in mobile liquid measurement solutions, announces its interim results for the three- and six-month periods ended February 29, 2024.

"We are seeing steady demand for our products in the crude and used oil markets, focusing our sales and marketing efforts on gaining market share with existing fleet turnover and new developing new fleet accounts," says Nick Forbes, CEO at Titan. "We are also excited to be gaining traction in the fuels market, and we will continue to focus on our diversification strategy over the coming quarters.

"The second quarter results reflect a stable production rate from Tanker OEMs, mirroring the activity seen in the first fiscal quarter.

"Titan has been focusing on business development activities with key players in the Refined Fuels market. Undertaking several pilot trials in the third and fourth quarter of this year, the pilot trials are expected to take 3-5 months, equipping 1-5 trucks with Titan TD100™ systems and Titan's Rack Control Module (RCM).

"Longer term, our product development initiatives are focused on a next generation of product that will be cost-effective and designed to fit multiple end-use applications. As part of our technology modernization strategy, we are conducting pilot trials with T-Connect, Titan's first mobile application that works on iOS and Android devices. T-Connect is a software tool that will drive adoption of the TD100™ system in new and existing market segments. We currently have 8 fleet customers piloting T-Connect, and we expect to scale this number over the course of the 3rd and 4th quarter in fiscal 2024. T-Connect underscores Titan's commitment to being the market leader in advanced technology for tanker trucks.

"Our investment strategy is to commit the necessary resources to penetrate new mobile liquid market segments, and the development of value-added products and software solutions to these market segments. The Company invests its non-operating cash reserves in conservative interest-bearing accounts and marketable securities. Acquisition opportunities are considered where it complements our growth strategy or enables the monetization of our connected strategy."

Through six months, the Company's revenues have increased by 8% to $3,264,837 compared to $3,025,028 through six months of fiscal 2023.
