Flexible Solutions also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces financial results for full year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “We are very pleased with the results for 2021. In addition to the 10% revenue increase, profits were up 16% and operating cash flow increased by 24%. These results were achieved in a year when shipping costs quintupled and raw materials prices increased very rapidly. It’s due to the skill and hard work of the whole FSI team that we were so successful.”

 

Mr. O’Brien continues, “In 2021, we engaged with new prospective customers and introduced additional products to existing customers. We anticipate that much of this preparation will result in new sales in 2022. We estimate that we will exceed last years growth and profit results in the 22 year.”

    

 

 

 

The NanoChem division and ENP subsidiary continue to be the dominant sources of revenue and cash flow for the Company. New opportunities continue to unfold in detergent, water treatment, oil field extraction, turf, ornamental and agricultural use to further increase sales in these divisions.

Notes: certain items not related to “operations” of the Company’s net income are listed below.

 

a) Non-GAAP - Flexible Solutions International purchased 65% of ENP in 4th quarter, 2018 (October 2018). Therefore Operating Cash Flow is adjusted by the pre tax Net income or loss of the non-controlling interest in ENP. An adjustment to Operating cash flow has been made to account for the use of a pre tax amount versus an after tax amount which was originally used in that year. 

b) Non-GAAP - amounts exclude certain cash and non-cash items: Depreciation and Stock compensation expense (2021 = $1,176,047,  2020 = $1,007,684), Interest expense (2021 = $199,930, 2020 = $260,657), Interest income (2021 = $77,999, 2020 = $53,101), Gain on investment (2021 = $507,143, 2020 = $877,358), gain on sale of equipment (2021 = N/A, 2020 = 9,490), Gain on sale of property (2021 = $44,330, 2020 = N/A), Gain on acquisition of ENP Realty (2021 = N/A, 2020 = $133,341),  Deferred income tax recovery (expense) (2021 = ($363,317), 2020 = ($409,553)), Income tax (2021 = $1,993,182, 2020 = $1,197,888), and pretax Net income attributable to non-controlling interests (2021 = $1,214,206, 2020 = 871,844). *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 (2021 = $507,143, and 2020 = $877,358), including those from the Florida LLC, are removed from the calculation to arrive at Operating Cash Flow.

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