VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Aug 14, 2008 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is a developer and manufacturer of biodegradable and environmentally safe, water and energy conservation technology.The NCS Division, responsible for the majority of FSI’s revenue, produces biodegradable polyaspartic acid for oil field scale control, detergent formulations and fertilizer enhancement. Today FSI announces financial results for the second quarter (Q2) ended Jun. 30, 2008.
Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “Second quarter, 2008 was the largest second quarter revenue ever recorded by FSI resulting in revenue growth of more than 36% over the same period last year. The higher than expected sales was a result of increased sales performance in the NCS Division. Although it is too soon to predict top line revenue, we anticipate near term future quarters to show year over year revenue and cash flow growth as well. As a result, 6 months, 2008 net income, before other items, was $726,257, or $0.05 per weighted average share. This compares with a net loss, before other items, of $91,492, or $0.01 per weighted average share during the first 6 months of 2007.”
- Sales in the second quarter (Q2), were $2,922,616, up significantly when compared to sales of $2,143,107, in the corresponding period a year ago. The result was a GAAP net income of $347,623, or $0.02 per basic weighted average share, in Q2, 2008 compared with a net loss of $70,477, or $0.01 per weighted average share, in Q2, 2007.
- Weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts for the quarters were 14,057,567 for 2008 and 13,841,489 for 2007.
- NON-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 6 months ending Jun. 30, 2008 net income reflects $393,263 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), and $329,333 of expenses not related to either this period or operating activities of the Company. When non-cash charges and unrelated expenses are removed, the Company shows positive operating cash flow of $1,380,392 or $0.10 per share. This compares with operating cash flow of $440,491, or $0.03 per share, in the corresponding 6 months of 2007.
The NanoChem division continues to contribute substantially to sales and cash flow and, new opportunities are unfolding to further increase sales in this division. NanoChem sales are much less seasonal than those of the Flexible Solutions Ltd and WaterSavr divisions. This has lead to less volatility in total revenue figures quarter over quarter. Sales continue in both the Flexible Solutions Ltd and WaterSavr divisions but, again, at lower levels than the NanoChem division.
