Flexible Solutions Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year, 2007 Financial Results
Conference Call Scheduled for Tues., April 1, 2008; See the Time and Dial-in Number Below
VICTORIA, BC–( EMWPresswire – March 31, 2008) – Flexible Solutions International Inc. (
environmentally safe, water and energy conservation technology, as well as
anti-scalant and crop nutrient enhancement products, today announces
financial results for the fourth quarter (Q4) and full year ended Dec. 31,
Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “We are pleased with this quarter given
the significantly smaller operating loss than experienced in Q4, 2006. The
change in quarter over quarter sales, for all divisions, has improved in
Q4, 2007 when compared to the previous quarters of 2007. As a result, Q4,
quarter over quarter sales, were unchanged as compared to down in Q1, Q2
and Q3, 2007. Early indications from sales in Q1, 2008 suggest top line
sales are improving.
* Sales in the fourth quarter (Q4), were $1,701,359, or unchanged when
compared to sales of $1,700,806 in the corresponding period a year ago. The
result was a GAAP accounting net loss of $522,571 or $0.04 per basic
weighted average share for Q4, 2007. Note that the Q4, 2007 net loss
includes a one-time write down of an investment — $98,000 — unrelated to
operations of the Company. Therefore, when this one-time write down is
removed, actual (Non-GAAP) operating loss for Q4, 2007 was $424,571 or
$0.03 per share. This compares to a higher net loss of $526,621, or $0.04,
in Q4, 2006. Sales in the first three quarters of 2007 were down $942,359
when comparing the first 9 months of 2007 to that of 2006. The largest
decline in 2007 sales came in Q3, 2007, when higher than normal oil field
maintenance shut downs occurred, reducing the NanoChem Division sales. See
the following table for full year financial results.
* Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts for the
quarters were 14,156,480 for 2007 and 13,010,514 for 2006.
* Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 12 months ending Dec. 31, 2007 net
income reflects $1,275,532 of non-cash charges (depreciation, stock option
expenses, etc.), and when non-cash charges are removed, the Company shows
positive operating cash flow of $171,914 or $0.01 per share. This compares
with 2006 operating cash flow of $565,353, or $0.04 per share (the 2006
cash flow number also excludes items not related to 2006 operations — see
table below). Approximate Q4 operating cash flow was; for Q4, 2007 negative
$53,000; for Q4, 2006 negative $86,000.
Heatsavr sales continue to grow at a strong rate as a result of not only
higher energy costs but, also higher water costs. Heatsavr reduces energy
costs by reducing evaporation of warm pool water. As a result of sales
growth the Heatsavr brand is gaining end-user recognition.
Sales of WaterSavr grew substantially in 2006 and 2007, and significant new
opportunities for sales from around the world are the result of the
product’s success. However, the 2007-08 near record rain fall and flooding
in Australia resulted in slower growth for that region during Q4, 2007.
The NanoChem division continues to contribute substantially to sales and
cash flow and, new opportunities are unfolding in detergent, oil field
extraction and fertilizer use to further increase sales in this division.
Except in Q3, NanoChem sales are generally less seasonal than those of our
WaterSavr and Flexible Solutions Ltd divisions. This has led to less
volatility in quarter over quarter revenue figures.
