SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2016) - The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (OTCQB: WTER) (the "Company"), developers of an innovative state of the art and proprietary electrolysis beverage process that is packaged and sold in 500ml, 700ml, 1-liter, 3-liter and 1-gallon sizes under the trade name Alkaline88, has announced an inability to achieve their previously announced target earnings goals for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016. 

The Company previously projected it would achieve breakeven operational results by the quarter ending December 31, 2015 with profitability in the fourth quarter ending March 31, 2016. Based on the preliminary results of the quarter ending December 31, 2015 and current projections through March 31, 2016 it is now clear that neither of these objectives will be fulfilled. Furthermore, based on sales revenues and projections for the same period, the company will fall short of a previously announced $10 million anticipated sales forecast.

"Although we continue to experience record growth, and foresee ongoing significant impetus for the remainder of the fiscal year, our third and projected fourth quarter results have been hampered by continued capital and supply chain constraints. We are working diligently to correct both of these issues and are very optimistic we will have them resolved by fiscal year end March 31, 2016," stated Mr. Steven Nickolas, President and CEO of the Company.
