Calci TechPresentation 2010

  1. 1. The Future is Bright, White & Sustainable Green Breakthrough Projects Technology Delivering Superior and Cost Saving Products for Established Markets April 2010
  2. 2. SAFE HARBOUR STATEMENT FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION Certain information from CalciTech Ltd. (“CLK”) (website, presentation, fact sheet or any other communications or company related materials), in various filings with United States Regulators, in reports to shareholders and in other communications, is forward-looking within the meaning of certain securities laws, and is subject to important risks, uncertainties and assumptions. This forward-looking information includes, among other things, information with respect to management’s expectations as to financial results as well as information with respect to the Company’s beliefs, plans, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions. The words "may", "could", "should", "would", "suspect", "outlook", "believe", "anticipate", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "plan", "target" and similar words and expressions are used to identify forward-looking information. Forward- looking information describes the Company's expectations as of March 31, 2010. The results or events anticipated or predicted in such forward-looking information may differ materially from actual results or events. Material factors which could cause actual results or events to differ materially from a conclusion, forecast or projection in such forward-looking information include, among others: general economic factors, adverse industrial events, the Company's ability to deliver its products in a timely manner, reliance on two major customers, the non-renewal of contracts which expire in the near term, complexities and timing of signing large customer contracts, the limited time to capitalize on market opportunities, competition, pricing pressures, fluctuations in its operating results, its ability to make and integrate acquisitions, failures or material changes in its strategic relationships, exposure under contract indemnities or defects in products, its ability to attract and retain key personnel, industry and government regulation, risks associated with integrating new production lines, risks associated with entering new product lines and markets, risks associated with establishing new production facilities and the potential for costs over-runs or delays associated with construction, risks that the Company may be unable to procure needed capital for its growth plans and risks that the Company may not be able to obtain licenses for technology needed for its expansion plans on terms that are acceptable to the Company. The Company cautions that the foregoing list of material factors is not exhaustive. When relying on the Company's forward–looking information to make decisions, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential events. The Company has made certain assumptions regarding the timing of the realization of certain opportunities which it thinks is reasonable but which may not be achieved. Furthermore, the pursuit of these opportunities does not ensure a linear progression of the Company's revenue and earnings, since they may involve significant up-front expenditures. The Company has assumed a certain progression, which may not be realized. It has also assumed that the material factors referred to in the previous paragraph will not cause such forward-looking information to differ materially from actual results or events. However, the list of these factors is not exhaustive and is subject to change and there can be no assurance that such assumptions will reflect the actual outcome of such items or factors. For additional information with respect to certain of these and other factors, refer to the risks and uncertainties sections of the Company's Form 20-F Statement dated December 31, 2008 and filed with United States securities regulators. USE OF MARKET AND INDUSTRY DATA CLK information (website, presentation, fact sheet or any other communications or company related materials), includes market and industry data that has been obtained from third party sources, including industry publications, as well as industry data prepared by CLK management and the agents on the basis of their knowledge of and experience in the industry in which CLK operates. Management and the agents' knowledge of the industry have been developed through their experience and participation in the industry. Management believes that the industry data is accurate and that the estimates and assumptions are reasonable, but there is no assurance as to the accuracy or completeness of this data. Third party sources generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but there is no assurance as to the accuracy or completeness of included information. Although management believes it to be reliable, management has not independently verified any of the data from third party sources referred to in this investor presentation or ascertained the underlying economic assumptions relied upon by such sources. 2
  3. 3. SCC Process – Green Credentials SCC process turns otherwise economically worthless and polluting industrial waste into a valuable resource. SCC process reduces the requirement for ecologically harmful quarrying, reduces dusting problems and saves energy and transport costs Upcycling of historical waste dumps reduces land fill and allows for regeneration of brown sites. Per tonne of SCC produced from waste, 44 tonnes of greenhouse gas CO2 is consumed (CO2 credits available) Treatment of paper mill sludge ash consumes CO2 while yielding valuable minerals, allowing for recycling not possible with other processes. SCC from waste enables end customers to claim that their products use sustainable materials 3
  4. 4. Investment Opportunity Patented (green) technology converts wide variety of lime sources, particularly industrial waste, into new and superior form of calcium carbonate Technology represents over ten years and $50 million in development costs Technology delivers products with superior quality and cost of use characteristics Technology and products extensively validated in real life trials Projections resulting from market feedback (Letters of Intent) and other extensive internal and third party market research, show that the projects are expected to yield returns well above industry average The market is ready to take delivery, all that is required is build up of production capacity European subsidiary now working towards completion of project finance for first 500,000 tpa production plants and Phase II development towards 2 million tpa production capacity 4
  5. 5. What is SCC? Synthetic Calcium Carbonate Mineral pigment and specialty filler Wide variety of multi billion $ applications Products that • Improve finished product quality • Reduce Running Costs • Increase Productivity Aimed at high end value segment for each application 5

  8. 8. SCC Brings Sustainability Reduces usage of valuable materials • Higher filler loadings in plastics reduces usage of polymers by up to 20% • Improved opacity and brightness enables less fibre, pigment and less TiO2 Recycles waste from existing processes • Converts mineral waste from paper recycling plant into valuable paper coating material • Converts carbide waste from PVC acetylene process into useful filler for plastics • Avoids disposal into landfill • Replaces virgin calcium carbonate with superior sustainable SCC • Reduces environmental damage from quarrying and transporting minerals • Captures 44 tonnes of CO2 per 100 tonnes of product • CO2 credits available 8
  9. 9. SCC Brings Cost Savings Increase filler loading in PVC profiles reduces cost by 5% Replaces high volume GCC with lower grammage SCC for same properties, saving pigment costs by up to 20% Increasing filler loading in silicone sealants reduces costs by 18% Reducing TiO2 ($2,800 per tonne) in PVC & Paint reduces product costs by 5% Increasing speed of paper machine by reducing drying time potentially reduces costs by 1-2% Reducing wear on processing equipment reduces maintenance costs Converting waste material saves disposal costs of $60/t 9
