Conference call scheduled for Wednesday May 16th, 11:00am Eastern time, 8:00am Pacific Time
See dial in number below
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 15, 2007 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), a developer and manufacturer of biodegradable and environmentally safe, water and energy conservation technology, as well as anti-scalant and crop nutrient enhancement products, today announces financial results for the first quarter (Q1) ended Mar 31, 2007.
Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “This was another great quarter for FSI even though operating revenues showed a slight decline. The decrease in sales was due in large to shipping problems. A shortage of liquid cargo containers available for shipping our products in March reduced FSI’s top line sales numbers for the quarter even though purchase orders were received. The Company does not book sales as revenue until product is shipped.”
• Sales in the first quarter (Q1), were $2,289,901, down slightly when compared to sales of $2,508,445, in the corresponding period a year ago. The result was an accounting net loss of $24,215, or $0.00 per basic weighted average shares for Q1, 2007.
• Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts for the quarters were 13,240,377 for 2007 and 12,981,316 for 2006.
• Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 3 months ending Mar. 31, 2007 net income reflects $251,445 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses) and, when non-cash charges are removed, the Company shows positive operating cash flow of $227,230 or $0.02 per share. This compares with operating cash flow of $433,989, or $0.03 per share, in the corresponding 3 months of 2006 (the 2006 cash flow number excludes Income tax recovery as detailed in the following table).
The NanoChem division continues to contribute substantially to sales and cash flow and, significant new opportunities have developed to further increase sales in this division. Also, opportunities to synergistically cross sell the products of all FSI divisions continue to generate leads to new business. The swimming pool and NanoChem divisions are cooperating to increase utilization of the Peru, Illinois factory while decreasing costs for the Company as a whole. Note that NanoChem sales are much less seasonal than those of our WaterSavr and Flexible Solutions Ltd divisions which has lead to less volatility in sales figures quarter over quarter.
