FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 6, 2023                      


Toronto, Ontario – Deveron Corp. (TSX-V: FARM) (“Deveron” or the “Company”), a leading agriculture data company in North America, announces that the Company has implemented another phase of its cost optimization program. In a continued effort to prioritize profitable fertility related field services execution and focus, Deveron has implemented $1.5 M in cost savings mainly through the reduction of field staff and ancillary support costs within the Company’s carbon business unit. The Company expects to achieve annual run rate savings totaling approximately $2,400,000 when combined with the previous $900,000 of cost synergies announced on November 21, 2023.

“Over the previous 24 months, we expanded our fields teams to serve the carbon field work volumes that our customers forecasted,” commented David MacMillan, Deveron’s President, and CEO.  “We have been early leaders in non-traditional agriculture soil testing products, but now we have refocused our resources to better match our capacity with volumes.  With these cost adjustments, the Company has better aligned its network capacity with profitable service regions and its core fertility business.  With a focused strategy to build an integrated service offering for our customers, we believe there will be many further opportunities to deliver increasing soil volumes to the labs, creating significant operating leverage for the business ahead.”
