 VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, January 22, 2024 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE-AMERICAN: FSI), 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. FSI is also increasing its presense in the food and nutrition supplement manufacturing markets. Today the Company announces fourth quarter (Q4) and full year, 2023 revenue.

Sales were lower in Q4, 2023 compared to Q4, 2022. Flexible Solutions’ top line revenue decreased from $12.20 million (Q4, 2022) to $9.22 million (Q4, 2023), down approximately 24% year over year.

Mr. Dan O’Brien, CEO, comments, “Like many companies in 2023, FSI was caught between the prices we paid for raw materials inventory in 2022/2023 and customer expectations that since prices were dropping, ours should as well, regardless of our cost of goods.” Mr. O’Brien continues, “We believe that this storm will pass in Q1 2024 and FSI should resume growth and recover margins throughout 2024.”

Complete financial results will be available after market close on March 29, 2024 concurrent with the Company’s SEC full year filings. A conference call will be scheduled for 8:00 am Pacific Time, 11:00 am Eastern Standard Time, the following business day, Monday, April 1, 2024.
