Micromem Technologies Inc.: Update

TORONTO and NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micromem Technologies Inc. ("Micromem" or the "Company") (CNSX:MRM) (OTCBB:MMTIF) through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies Inc. (MAST), is pleased to provide the following update:

Since October 2013 and as previously reported (www.micromeminc.com/newsroom), Micromem has announced client funded product development contracts with 2 companies in excess of US $30,000,000. This is revenue to the Company including the Company's built-in profit margin. Micromem has already collected payments against this and other projects and will continue to invoice against completion of each milestone over the next 10 to 12 months. The full value of system wide product deployment has not been included in the above amount.

The presentation (www.micromeminc.com/pdf/PresentationSVF-AGM2014.pdf) that was given by Steven Van Fleet on November 29, 2013 at the Micromem AGM, a copy which has been posted to the Company's website, highlights the Company's product strategy and current projects. The presentation addresses the suite of projects and also provides Micromem's assessment of the value of system wide product deployment. The specifics of each project will be announced individually. In all cases, the Company is either executing a licensing agreement, whereby, Micromem maintains control of the intellectual property of the technology and allows the client's use of it on a fee basis or in the alternative, executing a Joint Services Agreement, whereby, Micromem and the client share in the ownership of the intellectual property where Micromem has continued involvement in the deployment of the product.

In addition to the revenues noted above Micromem has invoiced and collected payments from other contracts that are at various stages of development. Details regarding the above noted product development contracts, as well as all of the Company's other on-going contracts are subject to Non-Disclosure Agreements and as such, the details of each contract will not be released until the Company has received final authorization by the client to do so.
