FSI Announces Third Quarter Revenue Significantly Above 2009 Period
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, November 2, 2010 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE Amex: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and crop nutrient availability chemistry, as well as biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces a year over year increase in third quarter revenue.
The economic slowdown of 2008-09 appears to have subsided. Year over year revenue continues to increase for FSI. The result is an increase in third quarter (Q3) 2010 revenue to $2.67 million, up from $2.45 million in Q3, 2009, or a year over year increase of 9%. 9 month 2010 revenue is $8.89 million, up 20% from 9 month 2009 revenue of $7.38 million. Third quarter of 2009 had a restocking component to revenue that was not repeated in 2010 and as a result, the company is confident that the year over year revenue increase in 2010 represents repeatable new sales.
