VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, August 15, 2022 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE Amex: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and water treatment as well as crop nutrient availability chemistry. Flexible Solutions also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces financial results for the second quarter (Q2) ended June 30, 2022.

Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “Second quarter results were very good and combined with Q1, result in record half year revenue and earnings. Our employees must be commended for the effort needed to expand sales and production so quickly.” Mr. O’Brien continues, “We intend to do everything possible to continue the recent momentum for the next several quarters.

  • Sales in the second quarter (Q2) were $11,165,143, compared to sales of $8,535,451 in the corresponding period a year ago. The financials show a Q2, 2022 net profit of $1,662,454, or $0.13 per share, compared to a net profit of $1,176,761, or $0.10 per share, in Q2, 2021.
  • Basic weighted average shares used in computing earnings per share amounts were 12,384,131 and 12,304,163 for Q2, 2022 and Q2, 2021 respectively.
  • Non-GAAP operating cash flow:  For the six months ending June 30, 2022, net income reflects $581,783 non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), PPP loan forgiveness (in 2021 only), as well as gain on investment, interest expense, interest income, and income tax. Net income attributable to non-controlling interests (minority interest) is removed from the cash flow calculation. These are items not related to operating or current operating activities. When these items are removed, the Company shows operating cash flow of $4,560,754, or $0.37 per share. This compares with operating cash flow of $3,293,783, or $0.27 per share, in the corresponding 6 months of 2021 (see the table that follows for details of these calculations).

The NanoChem division continues to be the dominant source of revenue and cash flow for the Company. New opportunities continue to unfold in detergent, water treatment, oil field extraction and agricultural use to further increase sales in this division.

Notes: certain items not related to “operations” of the Company have been excluded from net income as follows.

                 a) Non-GAAP –:: Flexible Solutions International purchased 65% of ENP in 4th quarter, 2018 (October 2018). Therefore Operating Cash Flow is adjusted by the net income or loss of the non-controlling interest in ENP (2022 = $310,592, 2021 = $454,933).

b) Non-GAAP – amounts exclude certain cash and non-cash items: depreciation and stock compensation expense (2022 = $581,743,  2021 = $558,580), interest expense (2022 = $109,757, 2021 = $113,329), interest income (2022 = $32,141, 2021 = $32,445), gain on investment (2022 = $214,316, 2021 = $399,236), gain on acquisition of ENP Peru (2022 = 335,051, 2021 = N/A) PPP loan forgiveness (2022 = N/A, 2021 = $537,960), write down of inventory (2022 = N/A, 2021 = N/A), deferred income tax recovery (2022 = N/A, 2021 = N/A), Income tax (2022 = $1,255,249, 2021 = $964,183), and Net income attributable to non-controlling interests(see a above). See the financial statements for all adjustments.

c) The revenue and gain from the 50% investment in the private Florida LLC, announced in January 2019, is not treated as revenue or profit from operations by Flexible Solutions given the Company only purchased 50% of the LLC. The profit is treated as investment income and therefore occurs below Operating income in the Statement of Operations. As a result, the gains from all investments, including that of the Florida LLC, are removed from the calculation to arrive at Operating Cash Flow.

d) Non-GAAP – amounts represent depreciation and stock compensation expense.
