Totally Green Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

November 15, 2012 - Toronto

Totally Green Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLGN) ("TG" or the "Company"), an innovator in organic food waste processing and diversion, reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Total revenue was $9,431 for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $224,746 for third quarter in 2011. The decline in revenue is a result of the shift from a "Unit Sales" model to a "Service as a Solution" model, in which the Company's revenue is based on monthly service fees and not sales.

Net loss was ($3,126,850) for the quarter. Of this loss, ($410,000) related to transaction closing costs related to the new investment of $5,000,000 in the Company and ($2,255,439) relating to the write-down of assets from discontinued operations and marketing rights associated with non-core markets. The balance of ($461,411) is loss associated with other operating and ongoing expenses of the Company.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $1,456,850 at September 30, 2012. Total liabilities for the company are $227,130, which include $160,900 relating to the purchase of equipment that has already been installed on our customers' sites.

Q3 2012 Operational Highlights

During the quarter, the Company completed a transaction to secure a $5 million equity investment and a $15 million equipment finance line to support the growth of the business under its previously announced Service as a Solution model. In conjunction with the transaction, the Company has made changes to its management team and board of directors. The equity injection was used to pay down the Company's previous line of credit, cover transaction costs and provide working capital to support the expansion of the business.

The equity infusion and managerial changes were driven by a refocusing of the strategy of the Company. Going forward, TG will only offer the ORCA and its waste disposal services for a recurring monthly fee on a contracted basis. This Service as a Solution model is sold under long term agreements and includes the supply of our proprietary organisms, maintenance and any repairs required to keep the ORCA operational and ensure it is processing food waste at its prescribed capacity.

The Company has also decided to suspend any allocation of resources to its water bottle product at this time. As part of this decision, the Company is negotiating the grant of an exclusive license to the green bottle trademarks and any related intellectual property. If this negotiation results in an agreement, the Company will receive a royalty payment for all future sales of the green bottle product while all expenses will be borne by the licensee.

The Company's initial efforts have focused on the Toronto market as we refine our processes to serve customers under the Service as a Solution model before expanding across North America. The initial results have been promising as we installed 13 units during the third quarter. These unit installations are not yet generating revenue as customers are still under the free service period offered to allow them to experience the benefits of our service. We are already receiving monthly service fees on 3 units that were installed in the second quarter of 2012. Management anticipates that all existing customers will begin paying their monthly service fees during the fourth quarter of 2012. We believe these results are promising given TG had 37 units in service throughout the United States prior to the change in business model.

Management Commentary

"The Third Quarter of 2012 was highlighted by the equity investment and shift to a Service as a Solution model for the ORCA. The initial acceptance of our product in the Toronto market is promising but considerable work remains to achieve our growth and profit objectives," said Shawn Dym, CEO of Totally Green. "Our service model has shown that we can create significant growth potential with proper execution and focus."

"The Profit and Loss statement reflects the fact that we are in the early stages of our business plan. We do not anticipate profitability for some time as we continue to fund future expansion into new markets. We have eliminated the Company's previous line of credit and have sufficient cash on the balance sheet to fund the execution of our business plan."

"All things considered, we are pleased with the transition to a new operating model and hope to expand our service model in other major centres in North America early in 2013."
